Grab a Drink!

We know what it’s like to be ballin’ on a budget so why not grab a drink before you head into the stadium! The North Shore has tons of options. These are also great places to stop by on your way out. Here are our favs:

Shorty’s Pins x Pints
Mike’s Beer Bar

Take a Walk

The Riverwalk is the perfect spot for a pre/post-game stroll. With the best view of the city, you won’t be disappointed! You could even park downtown and walk across the bridge and down the river on your way to the ballpark!

Inside PNC Park

Best Place to Eat

We know how hard it is to balance your hot dog on your lap while you dry to take a sip of your drink in your seat. And with kids, that’s just a recipe for disaster. So you have to check out the new Picnic Park in the outfield. With a bunch of tables a chairs and the best view of the city, you can enjoy your favorite snacks without the balancing act.

Try to Find the Pirate Parrot

Baseball games can be long, so why not play a game to pass the time. One of our must-do’s at a Pirates game is taking a picture with the Pirate Parrot! You can also try your best to find one of Pierogies, but they can be tough to spot. Our favorite green bird loves walking around the ballpark. And if you’re lucky, maybe he’ll give you a high five!

More Pittsburgh Fun

There’s no doubt PNC Park has so much to offer. So grab your ballcap and head down to the North Shore for a day of fun! Raise the Jolly Roger! If you’re looking for more to do in the city, follow us on Instagram and Facebook to stay in the loop!
