Pittsburgh.

Recommended Posts

Yeah, so this is one of those threads where I tell you that I'm going to be in Pittsburgh tomorrow and need to find some jazzy things to do until I go to this gallery opening thing in the evening.

 

So, hook a nurga up and whatnot.

yea and philly to boston is like 5 or so... maybe more depending on how you get to ct via ny. Its a pretty long drive, but im heading out to chicago wends and thats 16 in a truck. Anything under 10 really isnt that bad, and under 5 is a breeze to me anymore. Traveling is awesome.

 

Ive been to pittsburgh, it was the type of place i would like to write on things... not the type of place i would want to go for touristy stuff.

 

 

Primanti bros looked super greasy and gross when i was there... i didnt really eat a sandwhich or anything, but it looked highly unhealthy.

I'm tempted to join you, no homo.

 

I've only been to Philly twice, both times real briefly, and never Pittsburgh. I really wanna go to Pittsburgh. Fuck this thread for reminding me

its like 12 hours, if you're not trying to make that show i'd def. go to Philly first for a few days then head to Pittsburgh, as apposed to driving straight to Pittsburgh.

 

edit: actually i guess it depends on where you'd rather drive home from.
