Everyone knows there's no place like home. Which is why the owners of Steel City Pizza Company decided to bring their hometown down South with a menu of Pittsburgh-inspired eats. They fly in hoagie rolls from Cellone's Bakery—an official partner of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Pirates—to ensconce their submarine sandwiches. They have staffers roll out house-crafted pizza dough to the particular thickness they recall from their childhood memories. And they make sure their extensive selection of craft beers includes bottles and drafts from Pittsburgh's own Iron City brewery. But the eatery's Pittsburgh theme isn't its only draw; creative recipes and quality ingredients back each item on the menu. Cooks craft both pizza sauce and sweet, bubbly sodas in-house, and carefully sprinkle crusts with quality Grande cheese from Wisconsin. They also concoct original dishes such as Weggies, oven-baked sandwiches in which slices of bread, like the wheels on most pizza delivery trucks, are replaced with disks of crusty baked dough.

When she isn’t looking after dogs and cats, Rae runs errands for clients as part of her concierge service. Her day-to-day tasks include everything from waiting for repairmen to shopping for groceries and stuffing jello into the mailboxes of mortal enemies.

The Teak Hut’s expansive array of durable wood furniture presents a beautiful alternative to traditional room fillers and patio paraphernalia. Each of the more than 100 available pieces is solid teak wood, which can survive for more than 25 years and features a naturally high oil content that helps it resist cracking, splitting, and rotting. Sate melanin-craving skins while standing on a sun-chaise lounge ($349) or gaze across patio kingdoms from a bucket-seated Adirondack ($269). A 24-inch bar table ($249) with matching chairs ($149 each) is a perfect excuse to take a pinochle game outside, where shuffling cards is less likely to break lamps or china. For possessors of two or more posteriors, a selection of benches and porch swings lend a natural-hued elegance to opinion-airing sessions (starting at $209 and $259 respectively).
