Warby Parker is opening a store in Pittsburgh this year, the company confirmed to The Incline. As of Friday, there were four job positions listed for Pittsburgh, but the company wouldn't disclose the mystery store's location or any additional details. The online eyewear startup plans to add 25 brick-and-mortar stores in 2017, the company CEO told the Wall Street Journal.
Mac & Toz Alehouse pairs a mac and cheese-centric menu with a comprehensive whiskey bar. And the wait for it to open is over, reported Good Food Pittsburgh. Located in Bridgeville, the restaurant focuses on "elevated comfort foods" — think burgers, sandwiches and, of course, mac and cheese. Plus there's a whiskey wall with 24 curated options, available for tastings.
