After tracking attendance patterns at several local low-income elementary schools, workers at Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank discovered that many students who arrived late had not eaten at home and missed cafeteria breakfast at school. To prevent the consequences of inadequate food intake, such as learning and development issues, the organization established a breakfast-bags program that provides students who miss their school’s cafeteria breakfast with healthy, protein-laden food. Each breakfast bag contains at least four stomach-filling items, such as a cereal box, fruit cup, applesauce, and peanut butter and crackers.

Villa Southside attracts diners and dancers alike with its two-floor layout, happy-hour specials on drinks and small plates, and minimalist décor. Chefs craft small-plate dioramas showing crisp fresh-cut fries searching for their reflections in malt vinegar ($4), Villa wings pursued by an angry mob of hot sauces ($8), and lightly breaded calamari ($10) dancing on the edge of a marinara volcano. An extensive drink list includes Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, Sam Adams' seasonal selection on draft, and eight wines by the glass. Specialty cocktails include the banana-cream-pie martini, which melds the abandon of drive-by pie-tossing with the elegance of a sippable dessert ($9–$14).
The Nesbit family has run its namesake bowling alley for more than 65 years, welcoming generations of customers into its friendly environment. Eight lanes of lightly stained wood welcome casual bowlers or committed summer league competition, and the lane's gray alleys accommodate bumpers for novice bowlers or bumper-car drivers gone off course.
The Nesbits also use their business to bring people together for community fundraising events, as well as their annual, hotly contested Nesbit's Lanes Open. The 30-year-old tourney puts combatants through a treacherous gauntlet of qualifiers, match play, and finals as they vie for a cash prize.
