Yesterday we went to a first time event in Pittsburgh called Hometown-Homegrown. It was located at the Heinz History Center in the Strip District. The fun filled event featured shows by Rick Sebak and Chris Fennemore as well as a Virtual Cookie Table Contest and a cookbook exchange. I scored two new cookbooks at the exchange including one about Thai food and the other containing local recipes.
While enjoying the special events, the $10 admission was for both admission to the museum as well as admission to the event. While we enjoyed the special activities like the scavenger hunt, we also looked at the exhibits. Pierre, my Bruins loving husband, became a Penguin for the day!
We each got a pickle pin from H.J. Heinz and learned some fun facts while we used the Smart Steps.
The Heinz History Center is a great place to spend an afternoon. It is filled with the history of Pittsburgh. However, the highlight of the day was the vendor sampling on the 5th floor. There were fantastic samples. I forgot to take pictures of the food. Oops!
I will definitely return next year!
