How troublesome is it to have a hotel near the airport when touring the university region (cab fare, etc)?
Any good sushi joints (all u can eat preferred)?
Sports bar with cheap beer near the DT?
Cab fare may be expensive from the airport.. I suggest that you try a hotel near DT or the school when visiting... if you are visiting during the week, you can nab a nice hotel (i.e. wyndham by the school) for $50-60 a night.. goto priceline and "name your price"..lol.. it actually works...
the other questions Im not too sure about yet... near the school, I have been to "fuel and fuddle" (decent food, cheap beer) and hemingways (cheap beer)...GL
The airport is a ways from Pittsburgh itself. Cabs can be pretty expensive. However, the Allegheny Transit Authority has a bus that runs from the airport itself into downtown & oakland called the 28X. If you got to the ATA website, I'm sure it'll talk about the cost of the trip (it's free to Pitt students.. so I have no clue).
Sushi Boat is pretty good. There are honestly like a million places to eat in Oakland within walking distance from the lawschool and about 3000000 bars like Hem's or Gene's in Oakland.
