Pittsburgh Terror Trolley.

I’m still keeping with my Halloween spirit. FYI: “Hocus Pocus” was on ABC Family last night, and despite knowing all the punchlines, I still adore it. I haven’t caught “Halloweentown” yet though.

More for fall.

Celebrating fall with some pumpkin pie cheesecake.

Despite hating the change from tank tops to sweaters, I’m a fall junkie. What I consider to be fall weather is gorgeous, and so is the changing of the leaves. (not this 30 degree stuff at night) Fall is the last hoorah of enjoying the outdoors for the year in my book. If my apartment building let me, I’d make my hallway into a mini halloween attraction. That’ll never happen, so I’ll settle for doing another list of things to do for the fall/Halloween in Pittsburgh. Continue reading

RADical Days is an annual event, which lasts around three weeks. Each day Pittsburghers are given the chance to go to many places around Pittsburgh including museums, parks, theaters and sports stadiums all for free. This year’s event will last until Oct. 13, so you still have time to take advantage of some of the things being offered. RAD (Allegheny Regional Asset District) uses local sales tax money to grants in order to “create a positive impact on the lives of residents of and visitors to Allegheny County.” The organization funds many organizations that you hear around the city including libraries, museums, theaters, cultural centers, wildlife centers, and parks. According to the organization’s website, RADical Days is a thank you to those who support RAD. Continue reading
