In May 2011, Mr. Selfish and I took a quick trip to Pittsburgh for his sister’s graduation. Mr. Selfish attended Carnegie Mellon for his Master’s but he never really did the touristy things while there. We took care of that in a short weekend trip.
First, we walked around downtown and went into the Cathedral of Learning. It was built in the Late Gothic Revival style. Also, at 42 stories, it is the tallest educational building in the western hemisphere.
We also went to the Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History. The natural history section contains a very large dinosaur collection, as well as an impressive collections of gems and minerals. The art collection was also quite nice and included several Monets.
And, of course, we ate lots of good food. We went to Primanti Brothers for one of their overstuffed sandwiches. Then, we ate at Pamela’s for delicious breakfast food. Lastly, we enjoyed Malaysian food at Spice Island Tea House.
It was all very different food but equally delicious. Although I’ve never liked Pittsburgh that much, there are some yummy restaurants there!
