What to do in Pittsburgh this week

Newsletter: The return of the fish fry, a new brewery & a camping compromise

We also have the details on a new caribbean spot in Sharpsburg and a great interview about Pittsburgh’s role in the history of the suffrage movement. 

This week we’ve got an early walkthrough of a brewery planting roots in Bloomfield and a Jamaican restaurant that is now open for takeout just over the river in Sharpsburg.

WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE: Pittsburgh plays an integral part
