The Hungry Detective and wife did a late night tour of the strip district after the Garth Brooks show on Saturday night. I have been coming to the strip district since 1983 and its always safe and fun!!! There is always something new popping up or being repurposed. VERDICT: Guilty of fun...fun...fun!!!

We love to go the the Strip. We've been here many times. We always look forward to the trip. It is a bout a two hour drive for us but its always worthwhile. Lots of great ethnic food to experience. Many restaurants in this area.

If you are coming to Pittsburgh, you need to make sure to put The Strip on your list. The large Italian grocery store, Penn Mac rivals NOLAs markets, minus the Muffaletta, of course!

Years ago the strip was a place where you could get food at wholesale prices and find just about any fresh food you could imagine. You also could get food that you would not easily find in the grocery store. (Think Christmas at Nonna's.) You could even do some Old World price haggling. It was a pretty exciting place to... More

The Strip District has many vendors out infront of their stores selling interesting items from one end of The Strip to the other. Many good restaurants and clubs to attend. The original Pramanti Brothers Restaurant started here on The Strip as a little sandwitch shop for truckers and any one else that wanted to leave with a all in one... More
