It was certainly a difficult weekend to be a sports fan in Pittsburgh!
Pitt needs to rebuild, the Pirates forgot how to win a game and the Steelers were outclassed in Denver! However, the football season is young and the Pirates are playing meaningful games in September for the first time in decades! And, it is not too late for us to sneak into the playoffs so please keep the faith!
Headed to one of the games? Remember to start your evening right by coming to the Carlton for a pregame dinner! Parking is free and fares via the T at both Allegheny Station, which is next to Heinz Field, and the North Side Station, which is next to PNC Park, are included in the Downtown free fare zone.
These are just a few of our favorites!
