This new year thing is really happening, and we can hardly believe it either. But thanks to you, we are all prepared. Earlier this month, we asked you to share your hopes, dreams, and plans for 2021, and you really delivered. Your responses were poignant and fun and immediately added to our own list.
So here are your top tips for making the most of Pittsburgh in the new year.

❤️ "I’m looking forward to: Hugging my mom. Gathering with family and friends. Going to concerts. Eating and drinking at restaurants, bars, breweries, and distilleries. Getting home on the bus or T or in an Uber after a good time out. Not seeing reports of new COVID cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. — Lori F.

One more thing …
People won't be gathering Downtown for First Night festivities this year. But the annual celebration is still happening, just virtually.
“Pittsburgh Today Live” hosts Heather Abraham and David Highfield will host a one-hour, special edition of the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust’s signature New Year’s event on KDKA-TV starting at 11 p.m. Here's more on how to watch and what to expect.
Happy New Year. Thank you for sticking with us through 2020 — and if you know a friend who should know about The Incline, why not forward this email? We'll see you in 2021.
