    Hey
    My girlfriend and I are moving to Pittsburgh in a month. We don't know anyone there and would like to find some friends to shoot photos with and such.

    Rule #1, if you don't become a diehard Steeler fan, DON'T COME!

    Rule #2, I don't care if you like football or not, but you dang well had better become a Penguin fan!

    And you'd better hurry, the Pens are tearing it up as of late. Though, they couldn't buy an open net goal last night, including Fleury's attempt at his first goal.

    :D

    We were seriously talking about this. We know we need to go out and buy a steelers jersey or something.. or we would deff not fit in. But hockey.. who can't get enough of that.

    Just be careful when driving if you don't like bridges. There tends to be a bridge or two in Pittsburgh, :D.

    Can you even drive in Pittsburgh without crossing over at least 20 bridges or overpasses?

    I'm from further up north and I worked at the Heinz plant for a short term. I remember my first day trying to get to Heinz. I kept driving around and around and around Heinz with no idea how to actually get there. I could see it right off to my right, but I must have circled it about 20 times before finally finding the off-ramp that took me down there. I knew I was close though, because all I could smell was ketchup, LOL. I couldn't eat ketchup for years after working there for 6 months.

    I don't think the Heinz Hall is a ketchup factory.. at least the one I am living by. I looked it up on google maps and it seems to be a place for plays and what not. But yes I have done my fair share of research on Pittsburgh though.

    yep, Heinz Hall on Penn Ave. is in the cultural district downtown. it's right next to where i work/park every day. Heinz Factory was either in the strip or right off the north shore. i don't remember. it's closed or sold now.

    i actually just got back from walking around downtown taking some pictures.

    itznfb - another great place for shots is the National Aviary on the North Side. Here's a shot of an owl that I took there.

    Sure - weekends though are probably best time for me as I work out of town during the week.
