So on August 6th the hub, Lady Linzi and I went to Pittsburgh for the hub’s birthday. The Marlin’s were playing the Pirates and the hub is a Marlin’s fan having grown up in Hialeah Florida. The game was a night game so we had some time to do some other things as well. We had wanted to go to the Warhol Museum and the Carnegie Musuem of Art, but we only had time for one of them. Since Andy Warhol was also born on 8/6, we decided go to the Warhol Museum. We’ll be back again for sure. Pittsburgh is only 2 1/2 hours away from Cleveland.
We started the day at Luna Cafe here in Cleveland Heights. It’s a roadie tradition. The hub and I had the herb scrambled egg panini (I added ham and a cafe mocha) and Lady Linzi had the nest egg.
The ride to Pittsburgh was pretty uneventful. We went directly to the Warhol Museum. We spent several hours there. If you’ve never been there before I highly recommend it. It is the kind of place the really gives you a jolt of inspiration.
After the Museum we took some pictures of Pittsburgh’s Yellow Bridges and walked to find some lunch… It was about 4:00pm at this point and a lot of places weren’t open yet. We ended up at Diamon Market bar & Grill. Then we headed over to the stadium..
Unfortunately, The Marlin’s lost, but it fun being at the stadium. I have only ever been to two places to see a baseball game, Cleveland and Miami. I really like Pittsburgh’s stadium.
When we went to get our car we ended up not having to pay for parking because we had parked their all day and at the end of the game they had the barricade up. Score!
We stayed over night and the next morning we made our way to Dor-Stop for breakfast. Dor-Stop was featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. I had a VERY large veggie breakfast burrito (with a side of bacon of course). It was very yummy.
It was quick little trip but we had a great time! Can’t wait to do it again. Thanks for the memories Pittsburgh!
