Upper Lawrenceville Happy Hour Hike

Over the past 10 years, Lawrenceville has seen a dramatic transformation from an industrial working community to a hip, upscale urban neighborhood. The Upper Lawrenceville area – also known as the 10th ward – is the most recent section to see a resurgence of new shops and dining venues. This part of the neighborhood is still in transition, and maintains its sense of grittiness and Pittsburgh charm.

Happy hour hikes are designed for those looking for a weekday evening activity that is entertaining, engaging and even a bit educational. Of course, we can’t forget… tasty. It’s a food tour after all!

During this happy hour hike, guests will learn about Lawrenceville’s blue-collar heritage while exploring a sampling of the neighborhood’s newest merchants and food purveyors. Tastings include locally made shrub sodas, pepperoni rolls, delicate cakes, and even a tasting picnic at a local community garden (weather permitting). The tour concludes at Full Pint Wild Side for hearty sandwich, and optional beer tasting.
