Stosh,

Park at Station Square and MAKE SURE those kids and their friends experience the Gateway Clipper BOAT ride to the game. Its the ONE MUST DO if you haven't before. Parking at Station Square was/has been $15 bucks, I think the round trip ticket is $7 or $8 bucks now for the Clipper fleet/steamboat ride over. Don't let them miss it. The next best dollars spent and experience is the stadium tour but I think its only on Wednesdays this time of year, if at all now. Vinnies is the ICON pizza shop but is a bit farther away. There are thousands of good pizza shops though, if you can't make Vinnies. I listed a few below!!! Park at the bottom of the Duquesne incline and spend the $3.00 a person for the round trip. Spend a half hour or so at the top (take some pictures, check out the skyline, look at some of the cool old photos) then ride it back down to your car.

Before I forget, They won't let you loiter/stand at the north end anymore. Maybe with SRO tickets, I don't know. Never had them myself. Never to fear though. That stadium is "oversold" every game. Most people are behind the stands (leaving their seats empty) You even with 5 people will probably be able to find some seats just rows behind the Steeler bench or any where else in the stadium. If somebody comes by and says your in their seats, just move to the next 5 empty. somewhere around the end of the 1st, you'll be good to go the rest of the game. Most are behind the stands 8 ft from the beer, food, bathroom smoking and drinking watching the game on the numerous HD TV behind the stands.


Too much left to write out, so here is the Pre-written version.....Enjoy the Mecca, its an awesome experience:

Hope this helps give you some info to make your trip more enjoyable. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. Let me know if you a find a "link" or something that doesn't work in this email so I can update it.

Some (MUST SEE & DO) info/sites for a trip to "THE BURGH" !!!

The Sheraton Hotel at Station Square is a great place for an "outta-tahner" to stay. It's centrally located and very close (pretty much walking distance) to almost everything you need to see and do. It's a little pricey, not a budget type Hotel. But it's better priced than the one or two hi-dollar hotels dahntahn. Station Square is directly across the river from the stadium, just down from the incline, just down from the Southside and the gate to the "GATEWAY CLIPPER" (The absolute only way to go to the game if your from outta-tahn) is right next to the Hotel.
- Click on "Attractions" at the top of the page. It has more info on the Gateway Clipper, Inclines and The Sheraton Hotel:
http://www.stationsquare.com/

Here is the site for the Duquesne Incline. It's just down the road from the Sheraton Hotel and across the river from the stadium. Once you get to this page, click on the link in the middle, at the top of the page (free parking & directions):
http://incline.pghfree.net/

Here is the Gateway Clipper site. Click on "Shuttle" at the top of the page, then on Steelers: http://www.gatewayclipper.com/cruises.asp

Make sure you find a Primanti Brothers location. There is one in the stadium now, but you HAVE to check out the original Primanti's in the "Strip District" or the one on the Southside at 2:00 - 2:30 in the morning after the bars close for the "people watching" and to get the full effect of it.
http://www.primantibrothers.com/

This is a MUST DO & the best $6.00 dollars a Steeler fan will ever spend. 6 bucks gets you on to the field, into the Steeler's locker room, an "at-your-own-pace" tour of the Coca-Cola Great Hall of Fame (under the Stadium) and walk throughout every inch of the stadium. Here's the website for the Heinz Field tours. The tours ONLY run through October though:
http://www.steelers.com/tickets-and-sta ... tours.html
http://www.steelers.com/tickets-and-sta ... -hall.html


MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE YOU SEE/DRIVE INTO PITTSBURGH (For the 1st time) THROUGH THE FORT PITT TUNNELS.
- Do it once in the day and at night, both, if you can.
- It's on your way, directly between the airport (if flying in) and downtown/Station Square/The Sheraton/Heinz Field. If your driving in/rental car etc. make sure you go that route BEFORE you head towards dahntaun any other direction.

Mineo's (Pizza) Murray Ave Squirrel Hill

Napoli's (Italian Hoagie) Murray Ave Squirrel Hill
http://www.napolipizzasqhill.com/hoagies.asp

The Original Oyster House (Fish Sandwich) - Market Square Downtown - The only place in the world I know of where you can order a large cold glass of Buttermilk. My favorite to wash down the fish sandwich - If you go, check out all the old celebrity pictures on the wall:
http://originaloysterhousepittsburgh.com/

Deluca's Diner - 2015 Penn Ave - Strip District

Triangle Bar - (A bit harder to find & not the best neighborhood.) - Home of the Battleship & Destroyer Hoagie
https://www.facebook.com/Triangle-Bar-a ... 601327829/

EatnPark (Home of the "Super Burger" - It used to be called a "Big Boy" and was the "Big Mac" of burgers before McDonald's even existed - Try the Super Burger with brown gravy fries) They are all over Pittsburgh. A Denny's type restaurant BUT way better - great breakfast buffet and later in the day salad bar.
http://www.eatnpark.com/


Must Do Steeler Shopping/Check Out:

Definitely You (Steeler Store/Shopping) Brentwood/Baldwin Best place to buy Steeler gear
- No website - little mom & pop shop that has lots of stuff at good prices
http://www.definitelyyoupgh.com/

Tons of Steeler Shopping (Flea Market style) in the Strip District *Saturday morning/early afternoon is best* (Sidewalk Sales)
- The Original Primanti's is here also Deluca's, Pamela's Diner here in the Strip District, :
http://www.visitpittsburgh.com/essentia ... -district/

Pittsburgh's Southside for bar hopp'in, partying, Nightlife *Friday or Saturday Night Only*:
File:South Side Pittsburgh Panorama Feb 2010.jpg
- At least stop in to Mario's, Fatheads, Casey's and South Side 86 (Hines Ward owned this back a few years ago) for a beer each. Make sure you try a Yuengling & an Iron City/Iron City Light (Two Pittsburgh Local Beers)

If you never been, you must stop in to Jerome Bettis's restaurant, JB's restaurant is right at where the Gateway Clipper lets you off. You walk past it on the way to the stadium/tailgate lots.
- For guys, you gotta stop in JUST to "take-a-leak" before you "tailgate" for the the game. It sounds dumb, but it's the most memorable piss a guy will ever take.

- It's a good place to eat too, but not on a game day (Way Too crowded)

Heard this is cool - Never tried it myself, but be something for someone from outta town that didn't grow up there:

Not the best neighborhood....hahaha....it's okay. I used to work there, making battleships (27" inch sandwich). My dad ate the first battleship ever made....by the original owners, the Catanzanos.

Awesome fuckin' sandwich.

Yuengling ain't a Picksburgh beer. Come on now. And I wouldn't make a point to go to EatnPark, that would be disappointing unless it was convenient and/or on your way. It's essentially Denny's or Shoney's .

Also, you can land banging deals on hotels downtown or across the river southside on Priceline and Hotwire. Any of the express deal hotels in those areas are solid and would either be within walking distance to the field or close to station square (if you went with a southside hotel) I just booked the Hyatt House at Southside works for the Packers game.

Thanks Bud,
Thats a wealth of information.
Certainly could use more time, a week to hit some of these spots.
I've parked downtown and walked the Clemente Bridge to a Pirates game and that was a nice experience.
May just do the ferry this time.

Location: Sunny Delaware (but the murdery part)
Meat and Potatoes is a little pricey, but one of the better dinner spots in the city.

Bloomfield has an impressively improved restaurant and overall scene, though a bit hipstery.

The view from Monterrey Bay Fish Grotto on a Friday or Saturday night before the game is worth the (admittedly high) price of admission. Some of the best seafood prep (and freshness; they go to great lengths) anywhere in Pennsylvania doesn't hurt, either.

The micro/nanobrew scene in Pittsburgh is vibrant, creative and booming.

Have some pierogis. For God's sake.

The Gateway Clipper trip to the game is definitely a must. If the station square lots are packed, there are numerous "private lots" (usually commandeered highway underpasses) in the same area that will feed you down to the docks for game time. Take a few of your tailgate beers. It won't be that cheap for several hours.

Wow. That is some awesome information. (thanks for that Steelersfan) I'm not even going to this game but appreciate all that info.

Stosh: Some great sugguestions in this thread, enjoy yourself whatever you decide to partake in.

My .02 is definitely take the ferry over to the game. I've done it a number of times just for the nostalgia. It's great. I enjoy the easy access to, park, hit some Station Square shops, some good eats located right there as well. My advice: Get on the Big Boat on the way over (if possible) BUT on the way back get to the docking station as soon as possible following the game because the crowd grows very large very quickly. You could easily be there waiting for close to an hour. On the return trip, get on the smallest boat possible. If you do and that works out, you can thank me later! LOL, the deboarding off the bigger boats after waiting in that line adds to the waiting/lost time.

Also, Pamela's diner for breakfast was mentioned here when I posed this question a few years ago. You won't be disappointed there either. The pizza Swiss has talked about for years is most definitely worth it. After reading about it here for years, I finally made my way to that place and can confirm it's an excellent fuckin pizza!

Thanks Swiss.
Just may head to Penguins game too.
You have tickets for that game yet?

Will that be a sell out? You think there will be
Tickets available to scalp?


Got my brother's tix, Stosh.

Check out Penguins website. There's three together for $78/ticket and up.

Just noticed there's five of you. Might not get five together but prob 3+2 in back to back rows. Check Pens website.

Where are your seats for Penguins?
Steelers game?
