I hear there's a cool bar called "Backdoor Pub"!! If you get hungry after, go to "Hard Time" pizza!!

Stop by at our tailgate. But let's get a playoff game first. Fri/sat night. Hit Station Square, the Strip District, or Carson St.

If you're looking for the best food, go to either Bettis' Grille 36, Silky's or Buffalo Wild Wings.

For chicks? I guess I would recommend either Hi-Tops or Mario's. (I'm probably the wrong person to direct you towards the chicks though...I just know they're both very popular with the younger crowd).

Or if you feel like mixing it up a bit...just do the Southside crawl. Use commercial breaks to travel from bar to bar. They're all pretty much hot spots down there for the younger crowd.

Hi Tops is no longer there. So-Hos is a nice place also.

You may need to get a flight to Kansas City or Indy if we don't win our last 2 games.

Im not from Pittsburgh but went to the Oakland game. went up Saturday night and hit E Carson ST. It was incredible.

We are a little older and had just drove five hours and got a hotel in Robinson, Pa so we simply hit the Casino and went to E. CArson ST for the local famous SANDWICH but the WHOLE STREET was flooded with the young crowd. I felt like I was in my mid twenties again.

and the sandwich place I remember is Primanti Bros.

hiT E. Carson St. I think other Pittsburgh locals will agree. :tt03:

I'll be attending my first playoff game as well. Drive from Va so I typically don't get to tailgate and am always in and out of town. Are there any sponsored tailgates with a fee to enter? I'm asking because I wont have a prime tailgate spot and will be bring my g/f with me.

My son and I are also coming from out of town and would like to tailgate and then catch the game at a good sports bar. I read through another post that STEELERS FEVER sponsors tailgating. Is this correct? If so, what do we need to bring, i.e., food, drink, money (combination or all). We will be staying at a local hotel that provides shuttle service to the game. Live in South Central PA, but it's like 1/2 ratbid country. Can't wait to get to the burgh to see all the BLACK & GOLD faithful!!!

GO STEELERS...:steelersflag:

Im in the same boat, Ive never been to the East Coast before. Im traveling from San Diego by myself to see the STEELERS play this coming divisional game. I'd like to meet new people and locals, see and experience PITTSBURGH tailgating. Also where's a good after the game place/bar???
