watch “I can’t talk about Pittsburgh without talking football! I try to go to a game at Heinz Field once a year. Fun fact: There are two giant ketchup bottles above the scoreboard, and if they were to fill both with ketchup, every spectator would get a 14-oz bottle!” eat “When I go home, I always get the Capicola & Cheese sandwich from the famous Primanti Bros. In addition to meat and cheese, the sandwich has coleslaw and french fries inside. Think of it as the easiest way to eat side dishes.” explore “My father, who loves modern art, introduced me to The Andy Warhol Museum. While I’m a fan of any piece with soup cans or Edie Sedgwick, I especially love the painting Flowers (above). The colors are so vibrant, and it makes me…
