Today's the day: Hundreds of thousands of people will flock Downtown for the Pittsburgh Penguins' Stanley Cup parade. It starts at 11 a.m. and goes from Grant Street at Liberty Avenue to Boulevard of the Allies to Commonwealth Place and ends at the entrance to Point State Park. Check out all the details here. Immediately after the parade, make your way to Point State Park to hear remarks from the team — and to see Stanley, (a 40-lb catfish) currently on display at Wholey's, returned to the Allegheny River. And no matter where you are tomorrow, DJ Gallo has a reminder: Enjoy it, because all this success probably won't last.
Four state lawmakers from Allegheny County gathered with their Democratic colleagues Tuesday to push voting reform legislation against tough odds. Allegheny County Reps.

Check out a rundown here.
More than two months after first suggesting it, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto has yet to reveal his proposed memo of understanding urging greater social responsibility from Uber. The mayor's office said the document is "still in talks," so don't expect to see a draft today while Peduto visits the National Press Club in D.C. to talk transportation issues following the National Summit on Design & Urban Mobility. (He's not happy he's missing the Stanley Cup parade.)

As the Penguins officially celebrate their second title in as many seasons, it's worth looking at the prospects of winning another next year.

Rich Miller looks at five things the Pens need to do to hoist the Cup again next season.
