We got to spend a lot of time this past weekend in downtown Pittsburgh, first heading to Church Brew Works with my parents for dinner. They have so many things on the menu but I went with a Pittsburgh salad, which consisted of chicken AND fries! My out-of-town friends think its crazy that we put fries on our salad, does anyone else do that?!
They brew their own beer there and a few of the casks are in the Altar area. The booths use old church pews as seats and the original aisle is still in place. So cool!
After dinner we headed to Mount Washington for a view of the skyline. It was beautiful with the sun setting! (I'm definitely looking a little rough in these photos though)
Omni William Penn.

To kill some time between the ceremony and the cocktail hour, we walked to the brand new Consol Energy Center where the Pittsburgh Penguins play.
|Because who wouldn't want to pose next to a fake Sidney Crosby in wedding guest attire?!|
The William Penn is such a charming and very old building with massive chandeliers and detail beyond belief. It reminded me of some of the buildings we saw in Europe!

We also managed to look completely ridiculous in some photo booth pictures. Steve's getup in that first photo strip takes the cake. Unfortunately my picture with the bride is dark, really regretting leaving my DSLR at home!
And I leave you with a picture of Ruby from the ride home. I think it's her "get me the eff out of this car" face. Poor thing. I'm guessing mine looked pretty similar.
