Since self-driving car companies in Pittsburgh won't tell us where they're testing, we asked you last month to let us know where you're seeing them, so we could map their locations.

Tonight, Dracula will awake from his coffin. But he's not after blood (well, yours anyway), he's dancing in Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre's latest performance. "Dracula" the ballet runs today through Sunday, and there are flying dancers, explosions and maybe even a “certain amount of magic."

First it was cancelled when talks with city officials hit a wall. Then those talks resumed but a makeup date remained elusive. But now, after weeks of back-and-forth, Pittsburgh’s Hell on Hills 5k has been resurrected.
