Hundreds gathered at two events in Pittsburgh yesterday to show support for the victims in Charlottesville. "I don't believe in white supremacy," an attendee told the Tribune-Review. "That extremism needs to be dismantled. I'd like to see a better future for our child where all are respected." The gatherings were held in Market Square and at Schenley Plaza with more than 500 attending in total.
For our Who’s Next: Housing class, we’re introducing you to 12 advocates, activists, developers, realtors and volunteers who are working to make Pittsburgh a place where everyone can live. Who’s Next, presented by S&T Bank, gives The Incline a chance to recognize up-and-coming leaders in our region. As we do for each class, we’ll toast these standouts at a happy hour sponsored by Oxford Development Company — and you’re invited to join us.
We're turning 1, so we're celebrating our first year in Pittsburgh with a party at the Ace Hotel. Join us for beer, wine, cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres. We'll listen to DJs, snap photo booth pics and talk about the news. We're also celebrating a year of Who's Next honorees, our way to shine a spotlight on more than 150 young Pittsburghers making the city better. The first 200 people to buy tickets get an awesome swag bag, so you should probably do that now.

North Side burger joint Benjamin's will become the home of Bier's Pub and War Streets Taproom. But fear not, the beloved Benjamin's burgers will stay. As the owner tells The Incline, the spot will feature the "same burgers, same brunch, same people. Just better beer."
