Even though this was technically the first weekend of fall, Pittsburgh surprised us and gave us some bonus summertime weather! I wanted to make sure I took advantage of this while I could, because I’m never ready for summer to end.
Bakery Square is a fun, new area in Pittsburgh that’s really been revitalized over the last few years. Google, CMU, and Pitt all have offices there, they have restaurants, a coffee shop, some great stores like Anthropologie, Free People, and West Elm, and some amazing new condos and townhouses nearby.
On Friday, Bakery Square threw a Summer Send-Off – they had live music, drinks, and an amazing selection of at least 40 food trucks. I had the most difficult time deciding between food options, but went with pizza from the delicious Proper Brick Oven and Tap Room… and of course, had to finish the night off with some ice cream from Brusters!
I had fun outdoor plans for Saturday, too – it was my friend Katie Koenig’s last art show for the summer season, so I went to the Mount Lebanon Artist’s Market to see her art, and the other booths. I’ve mentioned her in other posts this summer, but I can’t help but show her work again, because I think she’s a fantastic artist! She’s been winning award after award this summer, and I’m so proud of her. You can check out her art here.
It was a great September summer weekend, and I’m hoping we get more of the beautiful weather before the start of fall.
