Pittsburgh is bracing for the worst today, with rains expected to continue and significant flooding possible. This after days of rain led to landslides this week that in turn led to street closures and in some places evacuations. In Ross Township, a landslide on Friday damaged multiple vehicles and a building. More rain is expected this morning, with heavy rain possible in the afternoon, per WTAE. Mayor Bill Peduto has also warned of flooding that could rival that seen with Hurricane Ivan in 2004 when the rivers crested in Pittsburgh at 31 feet, 6 feet above the flood stage. A lane of the bathtub section of I-376 will close this morning in anticipation of possible flooding, the Post-Gazette reported. On Sunday, heavy rain is expected in the morning with lingering, light showers in the afternoon.
Pittsburgh has *a lot* of bars — the most per capita of any city in America. But this embarrassment of riches means navigating the city's bar scene can be a challenging feat. We broke down the most essential bars, from grungy dives to swanky cocktail lounges, shot-and-a-beer joints to hipster havens. We focused solely on bars within the city limits, and we tried to exclude bars within restaurants except for absolute must-visit places. Here are 100 Pittsburgh bars for your bucket list.
