Pit Stop in Pittsburgh
Someone in DC last week asked me if I like bridges. It was probably the weirdest question I had been asked in a while, but I pondered it a minute and was like, “Yeah, I do like bridges.” Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I love water, but either way, what I’m trying to say is, there are a ton of bridges in Pittsburgh and I loved them dearly. I walked up and down the river, and, perhaps for the first time in my life, let it really sink in: I LOVE BRIDGES! Those connectors of people and things across expansive waterways, they were everywhere in Pittsburgh. And they made me happy.
After all the walking, I needed to refuel, so I stopped in for a bite and a pint at The Church Brew Works per the recommendation of a fellow traveler who’s spent some time in the city. Though the staff seemed a bit indifferent to good service, the food and booze was delish, and I would probably go there again should I find myself in the area. I just love that it’s in an actual old church with glorious stained glass windows. Nerd alert: my favorite part of the menu was the page that had the history of the church on it.
