When Shelby Baker found international organization Lesbians Who Tech, she decided to not wait for someone else to form a Pittsburgh chapter. “Many lesbians, and women in general, don’t always see someone who looks like them [in tech],” she told The Incline.

The Incline and our sister site Billy Penn recently embarked on an epic project to eat the Turnpike, visiting and dining at each of the plazas on the main drag from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh. We decided to look at our options across the Commonwealth, ranking the options based on quality and ambiance. On our 360-mile journey, we ate bad pizza, discovered the joys of tater tot-topped sandwiches and found actual fresh food.
