The world's most famous felted smock takes to the streets this Saturday with the city's first official Snuggie pub crawl. (At last.) And thanks to Perks, the history-making Snugfest won't cost you quite as much dough.
Things to do for April 17, 2009
Snuggie Perks, $2 Beer and Old Robots
The weekend is not a write-off.
If taxes wiped out your dining budget, just stick to grilled cheese for a while—as long it's the version served at the Sofitel bar (with camembert, honey-truffle butter, roasted hazelnuts and brioche). For UD members, it's basically on the house when you pair it with a martini.
Saturday's UFC championship bout means you'll be looking for a place with one thing: a billion flat-screens. If you happen to find turkey sliders, barbecued ribs and $15 buckets of beer while you're relishing the carnage, hey, all the better…
At this carnival of all things hipster, you'll have the chance to nab old rock posters, robot kits, graphic novels, ironic T-shirts and food from Reggies Rock Club. You'll also find tons of rare music, from obscure 45s to albums from the best local labels like Minty Fresh and Drag City.
Nothing says "hello, warm weather" like the smell of a good pig roast, so get your snout over to Logan Square for all-you-can-eat pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, homemade chips, live music and $2 Iron City Beer. Ah, yes, Pittsburgh in the summer…
The latest Restaurant Row brunch should be more than able to deal with the remnants of your Saturday night. You'll find hangover-absorbing pozole, horchata French toast, jalapeño cornbread and a dozen or so tacos. And if those don't work, down a mole-flavored Bloody Maria and take a nap.
