A few weekends ago I went to a magical place.
No, not Tahiti. Pittsburgh.
As someone who grew up in South Jersey, rooting for the Philadelphia teams, I had a similar upbringing to Amanda’s – programmed to dislike Pittsburgh from a young age.
But the most I really knew about PGH was that the Penguin’s Zamboni killed Carla Tortelli’s husband.
So, as I’ve recently learned, all I knew about the city was a lot of fiction.
Fortunately I love fiction, pop culture to be specific, and our exploration of Pittsburgh proved how much of it can be found in the city.
