What to look forward to in 2012.
After complaining a good amount about 2011, let’s look at some off the great things going on this year, especially in Pittsburgh.

1)     Yet another Steelers playoff appearence.
2)     The return of Sidney Crosby?
3)     The Malkin-Neal-Sullivan line.
4)     Pittsburgh International Auto Show at David L. Lawrence Convention Center (Feb 17-20)
Lots of new makes and models from all over the world.
5)     City of Pittsburgh Marathon (May 6)
Brings a ton of money into the city. Also, nice to see 25,000 people keeping in shape. I know I am not.
6)     Pedal Pittsburgh (May 22)
The Pittsburgh Marathon’s little cousin. The bike race around the city that has many levels of length from 5 miles to 60 miles.
7)     Three Rivers Arts Festival (June 1-10)
The true beginning of summer to me over Memorial Day. It just doesn’t feel right until I have eaten fair food sausage, pulled pork, stromboli and especially fries with cheese, standing at The Point
8)     The Point Park Water Fountain actually working this year????
9)     Kenny at Heinz again (June 30)
Perhaps the best tailgate of the year. Always soooooo much fun.  
10)  The 3 Rivers Regatta
It’s always cool to go up to Mt. Washington or West End Overlook and see all 3 rivers just full of boats. Plus Zambelli always puts on a great show for the 4th.
11)  The possibility of the Pirates being in 1st place in the Central in July again!!!
12)  Rib Fest
Do I really need to say more?
13)  Light-Up night (Nov 18)
A perennial highlight of the beauty of the Pittsburgh Skyline. The ice rink is PPG place is cool, but my favorite part is the gingerbread house/Santa-around-the-world display on the ground floor of PPG 1.
Enjoy 2012 and get out to as many of these as you can. You won’t regret it.
