Hello friends, how's the second week of the new year treating you? Well, I hope. I myself am just settling back into reality after a much-needed jaunt to Pittsburgh over the weekend. For any of you who may not know, I have a special relationship with the City of Champions, because I lived there for a number of years while I was in grad school at Carnegie Mellon.
being back over the weekend was just what the doctor ordered - a fantastic visit with some old friends, a stroll down memory lane, and the chance to see how much has changed in the ever-growing city. Surely, by now you've seen that Pittsburgh is one of the most livable cities in the Us, or that it is home to some of the greatest restaurants in the country, or that it just can't seem to keep millennials away. But one of my favorite new developments in the city is the opening of the Ace Hotel in the old YMCA building in East Liberty.
