The only Pittsburgh ghost tour I've been on has been the Spirits of Old Allegheny tour, but as far as I know, that's only in October.
 
A quick web search found http://www.hauntedpittsburghtours.com, which seems to be available at Crawl time. But I have no personal experience.


Thank you for the link. :)

"(12) Sorry, there are no public restrooms available on our tours."

Well, that leaves me out. I may call them to clarify though. Milwaukee's tour goes through a very old but gentrified area of the city and we did stop at a coffee shop for a bathroom/drink/snack break. Also, I can't see anywhere on their site where it says how long the tour lasts. I could probably do 90 minutes-2 hours without a restroom.

SD - You are probably speaking of Myrtles Plantation in St Francisville.  It is a BEAUTIFUL place and YES it is haunted.  I spent a night there about 11 years ago and we loved it.  The slave quarters were really spooky and "alive" with activity.

Thank goodness I wasnt wearing my Maple Leafs joisey.  I know let the ridicule begin what can I say I am a sucker for underdogs:  Cubs, Az Cardinals, Maple Leafs and the list goes on....


And I was worried about an Expos jersey?!?!!
Sheeeeesh, I'll be fine. Hopefully my Habs will still be playing while we are in Pittsburgh and I can add a Canadiens jersey to the repertoire.

A Habs / Penguins series while in Pittsburgh would be icing on the cake.
And pizza, and sandwiches, and hot dogs and Hungarian food etc...etc...etc...

We made some non-Roadfood stops in the Burgh this weekend that were off the charts good. What a great downtown!

And your Packers were treated just as harshly by the Steelers as my Giants were by the Pirates. I think I need a new Giants ball cap. This one has now been to three straight games at PNC Park and witnessed three straight Pirates beatdowns of the Giants.

After dinner at Jozsa Corner  Saturday night, we finalized the dates for the crawl.  It will be the same format as the Chicago crawl:  dinner Thursday night, crawl Friday, crawl Saturday and lunch Sunday. 
April 28 - May 1.  Looks like a lot of good food and a lot of fun!

Saturday we went to Monterey Bay Fish Grotto on top of Mt. Washington. It had been a dozen or so years since I was there and it was getting dated then, so I had my doubts about taking a group of friends there. But they completely changed the decor, architecture, views (Yes, views. You can see all 3 rivers now), and menu since the last time I visited. The fish and seafood selection was extensive with fish flown in daily with multiple preparations available - mix & match the fish and preparation. Pie Diva had Lemon Sole and I had Ahi Tuna. None of our group of 8 ordered the same entree, same appetizer, or same side dish. The Angel Food Grilled Cheese Sandwich for dessert was outstanding, too.

After the disaster at Heinz Field, we were looking for a light meal. And since buffetbuster and ChiTownDiner said they were full, we were on our own. Pie Diva chose Proper Brick Oven & Tap Room with her eye on the brick oven pizzas. Their pizza is not traditional, but we really loved it. The crust was really good, even better than Pizzeria Bianco in my opinion.

Unfortunately we won't be able to participate, but we definitely plan to visit Pittsburgh for a baseball-oriented trip in the future.

Sunday we met Michael's grandson for lunch at Nu Jewish Deli in Squirrel Hill.  Then we spent most of the afternoon in Point State Park.

There's a nice view of Heinz Field from the park.

We decided to get something to eat before the Pirates-Giants game that started at 8PM so we headed to the Strip District.  We randomly chose Roland's.

MH had Clams Casino.

I had "angry" mussels......with pepperoni, chorizo, garlic, tomatoes and hot banana peppers.

Then it was time to go watch the Pirates beat the Giants!


 
Just a small sampling of sights in the beautiful city of Pittsburgh!!

How was Roland's? I haven't eaten there, but I know people who regard it as one of the best places in the Strip.

We really enjoyed Roland's!  Apparently that was one of wj's hang outs when he lived in Pittsburgh.  We sat at the bar.  MH started up a conversation with the guy sitting next to him who was a sports writer.  I struck up a conversation with the guy next to me who was a professor from Duquesne.  Yinzers are so friendly!!!!  The bartender was a real professional and had been there for 24 years.  My mussels were outstanding.  MH said his clams were very good.  In short, we loved the place!!!

That sports writer was Dave Mackall of the Tribune-Review. He was working on a laptop and I happened to notice his Reporters Notebook, which gave me the clue. It turned out we had some acquaintances in common around the country in news and sports journalism.

You have no idea what they ate before.  There was a lot of food.  Including a one pound fish sandwich at Wholey's!

We'll have to see what's happening with work closer to the date, but Tim and I really want to be there. We have a niece who attends Carnegie Mellon and we've been planning to come to visit her so this is a great tie-in!

This does sound like it is going to be one hell of a crawl, and crawl is the key word, walking will not be an option, wheel chairs or wheel barrows will be the mode of transportation.

If you think that is surprising, since Sunday, here is what I have consumed:  a few pieces of watermelon for lunch on Wednesday and for dinner last night, a few bites of macaroni salad.  Unfortunately, my old friend tonsillitis paid a revisit and I knew even on Sunday that something wasn't right.  So much so, I almost asked Mariton to drive Gregg to the airport.  This morning is the first day I am starting to feel a little bit normal.
