In July, Healthy Ride told The Incline about a number of changes coming to the Pittsburgh bikeshare system, including allowing users to tap their ConnectCards for free rides. That change is now here, per TribLive: Port Authority bus riders can take an unlimited amount of 15-minute bike trips until March. Pittsburgh is the first U.S. city to offer free bikeshare trips to transit users.

Squirrel Hill tiki bar Hidden Harbor will unveil its long-awaited signature tiki mug, a limited edition creation from the legendary tiki artist "Crazy Al" Evans (read more about his work here).

You'll just have to come to find out." Mugs will be available for purchase for $125 each (a more affordable version of mug will be available online; stay tuned to the bar for details).
