We had the pleasure of driving up to Pittsburgh for Labor Day weekend.  It was quite a long drive, but we had a great time.  Our friends Dana and Fred live close to Pittsburgh, and our friend Tom (Fred’s brother) also visited the same weekend.  We sampled quite a few restaurants and bars, good food, good drinks, karaoke, and fun times had by all.

Saturday afternoon we had lunch at Dino’s.  We then pre-gramed at Dana and Fred’s house before going into the city to experience the Hofbrauhaus.  Ray has been to the one in Germany, but this was my first time at a real, authentic, German brewery.  I got a few pictures before we went in.  We ordered food and had HUGE beers.  After eating, we enjoyed the sing-a-long time standing on the tables inside the restaurant after dinner hours.



We then went to the Double Wide Grill down the street, where we sang some karaoke and enjoyed watching all the other drunkards sing songs.

Sunday we got a little tour of Ligonier.  Dana and Fred are getting married in May, 2015, so we got to see some of the area where the wedding will be held.  We had lunch at Fat Daddy’s, they had great burgers.  Then we went to Joe’s bar, which had a museum of taxidermy.  It was amazingly sad, but really impressive.  All the animals were killed by the same person, so he obviously traveled many places and spent a lot of money to have all the animals stuffed.  Here are just a few pictures.

Lastly we went to The Wicked Googly bar that not only had a mini bowling alley, but KARAOKE!  If you know me, you know how much I love singing 🙂  We had to purchase some socks, which I tried to haggle, but only got down to $1 a pair haha.  (Most of us were wearing flip flops).


I am excited to go back in May for the wedding, and I am glad we finally got to visit a city that we had never been to before!
