I don't think morning skates are open to the public..you could hang around outside and see if you can catch anyone leaving, but I don't know how that will work out for you. But, after games, in the players parking lot that is located below Gate One, you can catch a good amount of the team leaving after the game. They'll stop in their cars and sign autographs for a good amount of time. I think it's a lot of fun..normally the people there are nice and it's a really fun atmosphere. You'll see a group of people standing around holding jerseys and stuff, so just stand with them.


If it's still in the same place it was in the 80's and early 90's it's on the southside of the Arena, near Center Ave.


Isn't that the same thing?

Definitely check out a Primanti Brother's restaraunt if you get the chance...best sammiches around. Take a ride on the incline, visit the point, take a walk through the strip district. If you ever visit during the warmer months, i'd definitely suggest a trip to Kennywood Park (short drive outside of the 'Burgh). Great amusement park, tons of great rides, delicious junk food, 5 roller coasters. lots to do in the city. Let us know how your stay was!!

Here is a link that has good information about the city & events this
weekend!
This saturday will be the Saint Patrick's Day parade in downtown
Pittsburgh. The parade begins from the hill above Mellon Arena so
I don't know that there will be a morning practice.
If you go there you may be swept away into the parade. :D

From what I've heard players do stop and sign for almost everybody
after the games.

hope you like the city & more important hope they can win 2 in a row!
(or just kill the flyers) 8)

I highly recommend Station Square. There's nothing like it. It offers shopping options that can really only be found in any suburban shopping mall in the country, and the large mark-up lets you know you're getting quality product. If that wasn't enough, they have more cookie-cutter chain bars in one concentrated location that anyplace else in the region. It's a proven fact that Station Square alone draws millions, if not tens of millions, of tourists to the Pittsburgh region each and every...oh, let's say each and every month, tourists who often leave large piles of cash lying around because they're just dying to lose that money in slot machines but can't find any there yet. And you'll marvel at the clean air and lack of any sort of traffic congestion in the immediate vicinity; you'll think you're in the biosphere! After you've sampled the Elysian delights of Station Square, be sure to look in to purchasing a luxury condo in the city. It's a little-known fact that downtown Pittsburgh is home to around 52 million invisible people, which makes it the largest fake city in the world. Don't forget to see Grant Street, the home of the most efficient, uncorrupted, and caring city and county governments that have ever existed in the history of mankind.

Seriously, if you're into this sort of thing, the Warhol Museum on the North Side is pretty cool. If you appreciate a well-poured Guinness, the Harp & Fiddle in the Strip District is the place to go.[/quote]

Some of the funniest $#@! I've seen.

Make sure you ride the Incline, which you can do by either going to the top of Mount Washington or at the bottom near Station Square.

I highly suggest stopping by Market Square on Saturday. I will be at the Oyster House beginning at 9am partaking in some of the Irish libations. By 1pm Market Square will be wall to wall people.

I'm surprised no one has told him to take the incline up Mt. Washington to Grandview Avenue - I hear it's pretty flat up in NW Ontario.
