Hey guys as ive said, Im headed to Pittsburgh this Sunday for the game and i was wondering if there are any tail gates before the game that I can join, and/or if there are any spots to hang out after the game or something of the sort, cuz I would love to buy a Roethlisburger haha. Any tips or advice would be appreciated since I wont be leaving Pittsburgh until 10 pm.

Go to Bettis's restaurant before the game, its between PNC, and Heinz, To buy a Roethlisburger you have to go to Western ave in the Northside at a place called Peppi's.

What exactly is a Roethlisburger?

It's a heart attack sandwich:

The sandwich consists of ground beef, sausage, scrambled eggs, grilled onions and American cheese and is served on a portuguese roll. Depending on who you ask, it weighs between 1 and 1.5 pounds. The burger sells for $7 (the number Big Ben wears) and the cheese is seven cents extra.

Haven't yet tried one myself, but it's definitely on my list.

You have to stop at Primanties Bros on the strip, best sandwich you will ever have

You can get those in the Stadium, No?
I know for a fact that you could a couple years ago. And yes, they sure are good with a beer on a cold football Sunday. I remember freezing our azzes off for the Ravens game in '04. The beer vendor was running around chanting "Beat the heat! Buy a Heinekin." ..., how could I not buy one from that guy. c'mon. :chuckle:

Hmmm. Good to know. I guess I've yet to try the real deal then. Thanks for the heads up.

Well when I got to the airport I had the cab driver take me to Peppis. Oh man that roethlisburger is on of the best sandwiches I ever had seriously its so good, I also went to this pizza shop right across the clemente bridge. I was on a time constraint so I didn't have much time to hang around but ill definitely go there when I go to the game again and stay overnight.
