At least this afternoon and tomorrow, you'll save yourself a headache by avoiding the Liberty Bridge and inbound Liberty Tunnel. They'll both be closed as Joseph B. Fay Company works on permanent repairs to the bridge, WTAE reports.
It's a Saturday in Pittsburgh, and it's still pretty cold outside. What to do? How about karaoke with cheap drinks, an excellent song variety and a quintessential yinzer atmosphere? Tonight's karaoke at Nico’s Recovery Room is just one speciality option in the Pittsburgh area. There's even a Friday night option that involves nude dancers. Really.
