Once a month, we’re helping you show your Pittsburgh pals that you care by sharing things, consumables, and experiences made by locals, for locals. Below are my September picks.
For Yinz Who Don’t Want Summer To Be Over
Getting ice cream from Page’s Dairy Mart is an iconic Pittsburgh summertime experience, and now you can conjure up that memory anytime with this awesome poster made by Baxter and The Bear. Don’t forget: Page’s is selling its fall flavors right now, and the menu is drool-worthy.
For the Steel City Sweet-Tooths
Have a baked goods lover in your life? Take them to tour the tastes of plant-based desserts at Sweet Alchemy Bakeshop’s Vegan Bakery Crawl 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 24 in New Kensington. There will be sweet treats of all kinds, plus pumpkin spice lattes and apple cider.

For the Nebby Neighbors
If you have a friend that dreams about what houses look like on the inside (me!) or can’t seem to stop lurking on Zillow, take them to an upcoming house and garden tour. It’s such a fun way to see history, architecture, and personal style. The Brighton Heights House & Garden Tour is Sept. 16, the 51st Annual Mexican War Streets tour is Sept. 17, and the Friendship House Tour is on Oct. 1.
