Our Mission

We’re building for people who care about Pittsburgh and Southwest Pennsylvania.  With our talented writers, editors, videographers, and geeks (we use the term affectionately), we are building a site that helps people appreciate, understand, and enjoy all Pittsburgh has to offer.  From an amazing events calendar to articles on unique personalities, histories, recipes, urban legends, and more, including pieces on current events, we build honest content to entertain and inform a Pittsburgh nation.

Our Business Model

This venture is made possible by our sponsors. From big business to small, we appreciate everyone who helps us make Pittsburgh shine. Speaking of small business, our pricing and advertising costs are geared especially to help spotlight the local entrepreneurs who bring Pittsburgh its vitality and world renown.
If you are responsible for building your company’s brand and you’re interested in seeing the value we can deliver, buy one of our sponsorship packages today. We’ll help you with all the details and make sure to put your company in its best light.
