Pittsburgh's Drunken History: A Comedy Walking Tour

Saturdays and Sundays
1PM & 2PM

Come and explore the Penn Ave corridor while learning about Pittsburgh’s Drunken History with Arcade Comedy Theater’s comedy walking tour! Pittsburgh has often been called “a drinking town with a football problem,” so join us to find out how true that is. You’ll learn about the colorful characters that made this city the boozy, blue-collar cousin to Reno, Nevada… and if you’re lucky, you’ll learn some history along the way.
