Strip District Brunch Tour
Over the past 20 years, the Strip District Market has truly become an international destination for both locals and tourists alike. What once was Pittsburgh’s wholesale produce distribution hub has become vibrant food-centric marketplace. A melting pot of flavors, this neighborhood in transition features flavors from a wide variety of cultures including Italian, Greek, Asian, Middle Eastern, African Caribbean, and more.
Join us as we deconstruct a beloved weekend ritual – brunch – featuring local purveyors along Penn Avenue and a few surprise locations just off-the-beaten path. Learn about the history of The Strip while indulging in biscotti, nitro coffee, apple mele pastry, pepperoni roll, potato pancake, a sensational sandwich, tiny donuts, and even a lobster roll! Brunch has never been this fun!
Extend the Tour to Wigle Whiskey!
Interested in extending your tour? At the conclusion of the Brunch Tour, join us for a private tasting tour at Wigle Whiskey. You will have some time to revisit a few shops along Penn Avenue. Then we will head over Wigle’s distillery located right in The Strip, which is only a short walk from the last Brunch Tour tasting stop.
The tour will begin with your choice of a tasting flight or craft cocktail, and an assortment of locally-sourced meats, cheeses and other treats we might discover in The Strip that day. Then we will enjoy a tour of the production area, engage in a lively discussion about the distillation process, and learn the history of the Whiskey Rebellion told through the eyes of their namesake, Philip Wigle.
