You’ve got to try Rudolph’s Peppermint Bark Shake at Burgatory if you’re in the Pittsburgh area. The restaurant suggest spiking it with chocolate vodka!
Culgan’s tour is $25 per person and includes a copy of her book, plus some other fun.
The tour includes the PPG Place ice rink, the City of Pittsburgh’s gingerbread displays and more.
Her tour is inspired by her 2017 holiday walking tour she published in The Incline.
As Straight No Chaser sings … who spiked the eggnog?
Think you drink more during the winter?
A study out of the University of Pittsburgh says you do.
Colder climates apparently contribute to a higher occurrence of binge drinking and liver disease, Elle magazine reported, citing the study.
That warm and toasty feeling you get after throwing back a few drinks relaxes the blood vessels and increases the flow of warm blood to the skin.
And because of that, people tend to want to drink more alcohol in the winter.
Of course, it might also be due to the fact that we tend to be around family more during the holidays. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
So it’s no surprise to anybody that Coke is offering two holiday-themed flavors this year: Coca-Cola Cinnamon and Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry.
The flavors are expected to hit store shelves at the end of September and stick be around through the end of the year.
I’m more of a Pepsi guy, but I will give these drinks a try, of course!
Still waiting for Pepsi to bring back Holiday Spice. 👀

I was graciously invited to return to 90.5 WESA’s “The Confluence” program to share my love of Pittsburgh and the holiday season with listeners.
I joined Rossilynne Culgan, at The Incline and Katie Blackley, of WESA.
