Downtown Pittsburgh’s Leg lamp boutique crawl

It’s a major award!

You can follow the leg lamps in Downtown Pittsburgh for an evening of major fun!

On Dec. 7, look for the leg lamps!

You know the ones — the “soft glow of electric sex gleaming in the window” ones from that popular holiday classic, “A Christmas Story.”

Find them in the windows of several stores: 306 Forbes, Boutique La Passerelle, Ensemble on Fifth, Fresh Nostalgia, Heidi Optics, Larrimor’s, Peter Lawrence and Steel City Clothing.

Each shop with a leg lamp will offer drinks and treats. And you can shop for gifts!

You can also enter to win a drawing for two tickets to see Pittsburgh Public Theater’s “A Christmas Story: The Play” and a $50 restaurant gift certificate.

Of course, the real-life house used in “A Christmas Story” is located in Cleveland. And many Pittsburghers make the trek to the home, which is a museum. The house was listed for sale recently.

Have you checked out the movie’s sequel, “A Christmas Story Christmas,” released in November?

A cozy night with a fireplace, cup of hot chocolate, feet kicked up on the coffee table and holiday movies on the TV.
