What to Do Over Winter Break: Pittsburgh Edition
So, with the Philly/Pittsburgh rivalry at Penn State, there’s no way you didn’t see this post coming, right? Here we go:
Not performing arts, but art:
Andy Warhol Museum–If you haven’t been there yet and you are even mildly interested in obscure artwork, I suggest you head to this museum with a couple of buddies. I went this past summer for the third time and my favorite part is STILL the room with the balloons flying around; it never gets old.

The Pens vs. Flyers game is going to be INSANITY. If you have $200/ticket, go. And bring me. It’s on December 29th, by the way.
Other Pens Games that aren’t nearly as important:
December 27 vs. the Hurricanes
January 6 vs. the Rangers
January 7 vs. the Devils
We had a bad loss to San Francisco the other night (I blame the power outage and Ben’s bum ankle), but we still have one last home game before playoffs, so if you can handle the cold weather, get out there and support your black and gold!
Festival of Lights (ends January 1)
Hartwood Acres Celebration of Lights (ends January 8.)
