When you’re looking for something to do on a Sunday night, you have a limited selection, because many places close early. So when you have visitors in, or are just bored on a Sunday night, consider doing some of the things on the following list from one Pittsburgher to another.
–Go to a Steelers game. While Steelers tickets may be expensive for more sought-out game nights, spending time at Heinz Field is probably not something you get to do every day. Checking out a game with friends and/or family could quite possibly be the best night you have all week. Checking out a Pens game sounds like an awesome option to me, too.
If you’ve already gotten your Father’s Day gifts for this weekend, you’re way ahead of a lot of us here in the ‘Burgh. And just because you’re last-minute shopping doesn’t mean you are bound to get a crappy gift for your Dad. Most of these gifts I will be suggesting can be bought online (and delivered a little late, if that fits in with your plan for this weekend) or at a store nearby. For the Pittsburgh Dad, who is hardworking, most likely a blue collar worker, nice but slightly surly, although always loving, I’ve got the best gift suggestions for your Father’s Day celebrations.
-Pittsburgh Dad stuff: The Pittsburgh Dad & Co. made a great list of Pittsburgh Dad merchandise that your Dad will cherish forever, found here. This list includes the new Big Ben and Pittsburgh Dad Hot Sauces, a collaboration of these two greats of Pittsburgh. I would also suggest the Pittsburgh Dad 3-2-1 Win Beer for all of those beer-loving dads out there.
-Sports Merchandise: What Pittsburgh Dad doesn’t want more Pirates, Steelers, and Penguins gear? They can never get enough, so check out Amazon.com or any local store for some Pittsburgh sports shirts, hats, and the like for Dad.
Pens tee, anyone?
