Whether you’re new to the area or a native of Pittsburgh, chances are you’ve already come to appreciate the Strip District as the unique neighborhood gem that it is. The cuisine is unbeatable, and the history of the area still shines through giving it an authentically Pittsburgh feel. This month, you’ll get a chance to savor the tastes of the Strip and get to know some of the local merchants and vendors during the annual Stroll the Strip event, on Friday, September 14 th from 5-10 PM.
The event will begin in front of the historic Pennsylvania Market, and will take guests through the Strip, with chances to explore the local businesses and taste delicious treats they have to offer. The slowed-down, after hours aspect of the night gives local businesses a chance to meet and interact with guests to form the type of bonds and the sense of community that make our city special. Plus, complimentary food and drinks await at almost every stop along the way! The event will conclude with an after-party at the Pennsylvania Market, complete with local music performances, appetizers on the house, and beverages.
Some vendors to get excited about at this year’s event are DiAnoia’s Eatery, Mullaney’s Harp & Fiddle, and The Olive Tap. DiAnoia’s Eatery describes itself as a combination of “your favorite Italian vacation with the warmth and coziness of a neighborhood restaurant.” The multi-faceted eatery is an Italian deli and cafe by day and a full-service restaurant by night, specializing in homemade pastas and Italian wine. Be sure to get your hands on their renowned meatballs! They're always a hit. Mullaney’s Harp & Fiddle is the Strip’s beloved authentic Irish pub, serving up hearty meals and cold draughts. If you love your pub food with a side of live music, chances are they will host a band playing crowd-pleasing Irish tunes. Last but not least, don’t miss out on delicious artisanal olive oils and vinegar from The Olive Tap, the Strip’s go-to spot for the finest flavors and exceptional customer service.
