Looks like I'll be missing most of you in August, I'm leaving PGH on August 1st and not coming back until a day before orientation. Hopefully I don't regret that.

Yes, brilliant idea!! I'll be moving the second week of August. Maybe we can do something one or two weeks before orientation so most people are moved in.


+1 Fat Heads has a ridiculous selection of beer on-tap--just thought I'd throw that one out as a possibility.

Compaq, I've been meaning to ask, what the hell is going on in your tar?

Also, I'm down for wherever. If that means trying a ton of different places, I'll take one for the team there.

I love Fat Heads. Love it. They make the most amazing sandwiches. The beer list is awesome. You all should try it.

But I don't think it would be ideal for this situation. It gets very crowded, the bar area isn't very big, and tables often require hour+ waits.

I would recommend a place in Oakland. Maybe Union Grille, Mad Mex, Bootleggers, or Pittsburgh Cafe (it's a little sleazy, but you can sit outside).

I recommend Gene's Place in Oakland. Very close to campus.

Hi All!
I'll be in Pittsburgh at the end of July looking for a place. I haven't been to Pittsburgh since I was 5 so wherever you guys decide on, I'll be there. I used to work for a brewer so any place with a good selection of beers would be great btw

+1 for hemingways...

Stopped there last time I was in Pitt and I was pleasantly surprised with their respectable beer selection and VERY GENEROUS drink specials... perfect bar for poor college kids...

I also like the one where the gang tried out for the eagles....

Oh, I've watched a few episodes of ASIP, but I don't watch much TV outside of Top Gear, tbh. Probably won't even have cable in my new apartment.

Pittsburgh: the only city where the local NHL team will hang out on the 2nd floor of a bar and pour champagne into your mouth from the Stanley Cup

How does one go about getting tickets to panther Basketball/Football? I have a friend who went to UG at Pitt and he told me you can forget about basketball tickets because the waiting list is very long and they use a "loyalty points" system so basically all first year students are screwed because the only way to obtain loyalty points is to go to the games and being incoming students you obviously have zero.

He said football is a completely different story and it isn't very difficult to get tickets.

Pitt's site says footbal tickets are $25 for the season? That seems a little too cheap so I may have read it wrong. I also have no idea how to get them.

Football tickets are in very low demand (for most games). $25 for the season is probably true, I think it was $20 when I was an UG. The games are held at Heinz Field, and they're a really good time. Student tickets will not sell out. They might have a different deal for grad students......

I don't think the loyalty points for basketball carryover from year to year. Tickets are determined by a lottery, and the loyalty points are given to continue to get tickets throughout the season. They may have changed it, but that's how it was...

Law students can also by Graduate student tickets with an assigned seat in box row. for 125 [that was what it was last year] hoops tickets are hard to come by, but not impossible - except for the really big games. I went to 2.

You can buy students tickets online once you have your pitt mail ID. They are $25 dollars for general admission tickets in the corner of the end zone opposite the scoreboard at Heinz. I would highly recommend it. We are going to have an awesome team this year and we play Miami and WVU at home.

Basketball tickets really aren't as hard to come by as you might think. In the last two years I have requested tickets to every game and only gotten rejected for tickets to the Syracuse game two years ago and the Villanova game this year. And two years ago we were ranked #1 and had a ridiculous team. Basketball games at the Pete are one of the greatest sports experiences around. We are something like 130-12 at there since it opened. Though now that I think about it, I don't know whether we will be able to get tickets to basketball games as law students
