It’s Wednesday, folks.

We’re following President Joe Biden’s visit to the ‘Burgh today, where he will be announcing the first part of the multi trillion-dollar “Build Back Better” recovery package focused on rebuilding infrastructure. Mayor Bill Peduto hopes to talk to the President about expanding on the repairs made to the city’s water pipes over the last few years.

In other news: Hazelwood’s riverfront is getting a renovation, drive-ins are back for spring, new swag for Pirates fans, and how speaking Yiddish will get you a free bagel. And for our members, a new round of I Spy Pittsburgh!
