Stop #28; Swisshelm Park

Date: September 2

Neighborhood: Swisshelm Park
Pitt Stoppers: Mindy, The Bug, Jimmy D., Bobby D., Jim S., Jonathan, Carolyn, Lily, Lisa, BTBNL, Noreen, Gino, Kristin, Jim, Big Al, Noreen, Scotty, Kim, Rita, Todd, Wook, Rob, Deanna, Melissa, Lee.
Bar: Pub in the Park.

Pluses: Nice beer selection, incredible staff (Thanks, Maggie!) who kept up with the large group of us, events such as karaoke and trivia.
Weirdness: The kitchen is temporarily closed, so food orders are placed with a local pizza shop.
Swisshelm Park does not have a bar (Pub in the Park is technically in Swissvale), so we had a drink on the nearest corner in the
city limits to make the neighborhood official.

Aside: Like its neighbor Swissvale, Swisshelm Park is named after Jane Grey Swisshelm - a noted abolitionist and women's right advocate from the 1800's. The Swisshelm family home once was in the area.

Notice the two types of street signs.
