Okay, for us, the only thing better than the Steelers adding another Super Bowl championship to the team's six-pack of Lombardi trophies is watching the Black and Gold smash the Cleve Brownies on the gridiron — especially in front of the hometown crowd at Heinz Field. Which is exactly where the Steelers and Browns will do battle this Sunday.
Now everyone knows that Steelers fans are the best in the NFL. And that's why we're hoping you show your true colors — you know, Black and Gold — during tomorrow's Steelers Pep Rally in Market Square. Ther merchants in Market Square and Pittsburgh's favorite classic rock radio station, WDVE, are teaming up to host the rally from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. We're pretty sure your boss will understand why you want to take a longer lunch.
So along with maybe a grabbing a bite to eat from one of the sponsoring merchants, you'll rock out to the hard driving sounds of Pittsburgh's own SuperMonkey. DVE's Morning Show newsie Val Porter will emcee the proceedings and former Steelers defensive back and hometown hero Mike Logan will join the fun. As part of the Super Bowl XL championship team, Mike is a real winner.
Of course, if you don't have seats for the big game, you can always return to the Square on Sunday to catch the game at Primanti's, where the cooks will be serving up cheesesteaks and just about anything else you can squish between two thick slices of Mancini's delicious Italian bread. And one of the great things about stopping by the Square during the weekend is that many parking garages charge a flat fee of $5 — and that's a lot less than the rates near Heinz Field. Check it out on this interactive parking map.
After the game, there's still plenty to do in Market Square and all over Downtown while you wait for traffic to ease up. Check out the PDP's Evening & Weekend Dining Guide to see which of your favorite restaurants and taverns are open for business.
And don't forget to bring your Terrible Towels to the Square tomorrow cheer on the Black and Gold in the Square.
