The ‘Burgh! Part Two: Back to the Pitt

Last night I went to Target and ran into my friends Sarah and Michelle. Apparently Target is where all the cool ladies hang out on Fridays, we know what’s up. Sarah shared with me that she was sad I didn’t take any selfies during my trip. I’m sad too Sarah, I’m sad too. Sarah won’t like this post, there are no pictures of people. Just pictures of buildings. The architecture of downtown Pittsburgh is pretty amazing. Right next to a steel skyscraper you’ll find a gothic church with a hot dog restaurant in it.  The ‘Burgh was full of surprises and I can’t wait to go back and explore when there’s more time.

Friday night mister and I got lost with one of our friends in downtown. It took us over an hour to walk about 5 blocks because we couldn’t find our hotel. We may have walked past it a few times and we may or may not have been slightly intoxicated. On Saturday the groomsmen decided to get ready in our hotel room which meant I needed to vacate the premises for a few minutes. I retraced our drunken* walk from the night before and took pictures of everything. Here are some of my favorites.                                                                                                                *allegedly

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA^This gate was barely open so I snuck in. Little did I know that it was still the old prison…which was closed. Had to sweet talk a police officer to let me take some pictures. ^
