PostSubject: Taking my brother to Pittsburgh next weekend   Sun Sep 25, 2016 4:21 pm

So my brother who turns 50 on October 2nd got the reveal of his present last night.

My mom and dad provided the fundage to cover his plane ticket, share of the hotel, and his game ticket.

Me, and 2 friends are providing the necessary fundage for all his food & beverage from Friday through the end of game.

Looking forward to another great trip to Da 'Burgh.

Fare ye well Steelersxtreme. I'll be back some time next week to post about my experience (maybe).

Can't wait to get in to Da 'Burgh and enjoy the weekend of gluttony and football.

Have a great time @stlrtruck! You have to stop by Peppi's and Primanti Bros if you haven't been there yet. Like Fire Arians mentioned, expect your seat belt to be a lot tighter afterwards on your outbound flight from Pittsburgh, lol.

Although my truck finally crashed and burned Thursday before leaving, it was a great trip.

We hit Primanti's on Friday for lunch, Roland's for dinner on Friday night,

Saturday was the hotel for breakfast, shopping down on the Strip District with a stop at the Beerhive, Bettis' Grille for a late lunch/early dinner, McFadden's for after dinner drinks, the beer house for drinks after the after dinner drinks, then spent the rest of the night at the hotel bar.

Sunday was Peppi's for the Roethlisberger breakfast, and eventually Mullens for Perogis before the game. It was certainly a great time but the rain kept a few away from the game.

The game itself was amazing. To witness the arse kicking delivered to the Chiefs was awesome. By half time, a lot more people left the stadium, but as is customary my brother and I stuck it out until the clock read zeroes.

Unfortunately, we got back to the hotel shortly after 12:30AM and had to get back up about 4AM. But we made it home safe and to top it all off...
1. I have a new Chevy Colorado
2. Hurricane Matthew is going to cause minimal damage if any in my area.

Glad you had a great time and are safe down in Florida! It sounds like you hit most of the important spots, lol. I haven't been to Roland's or Mullens, but will check them out later this year. One thing you should check out the next time you are in Pittsburgh is the Duquesne Incline. I am finally going to take it up to Mt. Washington for the first time this December.

We need you to attend all of the Steelers games for now on, so they are blowouts, haha. Are you going to the game in Miami next weekend?

I've done the incline multiple times in my life. Love the view.

Can't make every game at home, unless someone wants to finance the flight, hotel, food & beverage (probably the most expensive part of the trip), and tickets to the game.

As for Miami, I'd love to go, but after this last trip and having to purchase a new truck this week, there's no way I can make the trip. I'd love to go as I've seen Steelers Nation take over the Dolphins stadium in the past.

I'm glad to hear you guys had a good time Truck. It was a good game to go to also. Always a good game when we dominate.
