Friday 5: Things to do in Pittsburgh when you’re at PCTELA next week!

1. Need food or want to stretch your legs? Go check out the Strip District, where food, art, and fabulous people intermingle.  Also a fun place to grab a kitschy souvenir. Right around the corner from the strip you can pick up a mini-donut at Peace, Love, and Little Donuts, and not feel too guilty because they’re small.

2. Like all the new books at the conference, but interested in old ones? Check out Caliban Books, where you can browse used and rare books.  They also have a music shop in the store where you can buy some vinyl.

3. Maybe you are more interested in a specific genre of books–like mystery? Go to Mystery Lovers Bookshop, one of the largests speciality mystery bookstores in the country.  They will have a booth at the conference, but nothing compares to going to the store itself. On Saturday afternoon, they even have an ARC giveaway.

4. Feel like you need some art to round out your trip? Or are you craving some Campbell’s Soup? Go to the Andy Warhol Museum. They even have gallery talks with artist educators on weekends.

5. Go to Point State Park and see all the impressive landmarks distinguishing Pittsburgh. The park is located where the three rivers converge.

imagesSee you all in just one week if you’re attending the conference! If you aren’t going to be able to make the conference, follow the conversation on twitter by looking for the hashtag #pctela14.
