Who Says Pittsburghers Stay Inside When It's Cold?

Seriously, it's not even officially winter. But this deep freeze certainly is putting the "BRRR" in "the ’Burgh." So that's why we're inviting you to drop by Market Square, where things are always heating up with some of the hottest events in town.

For instance, this Thursday evening the madcap comic geniuses of the WDVE Morning Show — Jim Krenn and Randy Baumann and assorted sidekicks — take to the Stage in the Square to host the station's annual Holiday Party that is guaranteed to rock the block with some of the town's favorite music legends like King Cool Donnie Iris, who partied on the Clemente Bridge during Light Up Night, and one of Bruce Springsteen's best friends Joe Grushecky of the Iron City Houserockers.

Now one of the coolest events to lace up skates in these parts is the New Year's Day NHL Bridgestone Winter Classic. Of course the Pens and Caps won't be bangin' the boards in the Square. But Allegheny County, the City of Pittsburgh and our pals at ’DVE will be hosting a huge pep rally in the Square very soon. So check back here later for more info on when you can show your support for the Pens before they take to the ice on January 1 at Heinz Field.

One of the best ways to really enjoy the spirit of the season is one of the quietest, most relaxing and even the most romantic. The normal holiday carriage rides run through this Saturday but we've added carraige rides on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1, 4 - 8 p.m. This little trip down memory lane is a great way to rediscover the city and all its holidays splendor as you take in the sights and sounds of our very own winter wonderland. Come celebrate the New Year in style.  For the full ride schedule, just click here.

If you're looking for that hard-to-find holiday gift for that special hard-to-please person, the shops in the Square might just might be best-kept Secret Santa shopping spot anywhere in the city. From the chic boutique at Serendipity to the sophisticated shoes at the Nettleton Shop, the Square is a shopper's paradise. And, when your budget and feet are just about exhausted, the Square is a great place to grab a bite to eat, a thirst-quenching beverage or just a moment's or two rest. So whatever the season — or the temperature — the Square is one of the best reasons to discover what's happening Downtown.
