?Though?its namesake is a couple hundred miles east, The Baltimore House looks and feels like a Charm City eatery thanks to a menu that prominently features crustaceans. Beyond the ever-popular crab cakes, you'll find entrees of blackened swordfish, seared sea scallops, and twin lobster tails baked in butter. There's even seafood on the wood-fired pizzas; one specialty pie teams shrimp and crab with mushrooms, garlic, and three types of cheese. Keeping with the theme are oversized, shareable drinks known as "fishbowl cocktails," each decorated with fresh fruit and spiked with colorful liqueur or aquarium rocks.
The McGinnis Sisters specialty stores are run by the coincidentally named McGinnis sisters. This is a truly familial enterprise, founded by their mother and father in 1946. The daughters expanded the store's selection and gravitational pull throughout the years while still retaining the literal mom 'n' pop attention to detail and quality. Fresh and local products dominate the shelves in each of the cozy markets. Chicken and pork fill meat cases, while recently reeled catches grace the icy displays at the seafood counter. You'll find quality deli meats and even freshly prepared lunch sandwiches ($4.99–$5.99) at the in-house delicatessen. Follow your whiskers to sniff out locally acquired cheese or daily-made bakery sensations.

As Pierogies Plus's chefs filter into the kitchen early each morning, they peek at the vast pot of potatoes they left to boil overnight, making sure each spud is tender and ready to tuck inside their signature dumplings. The multigenerational kitchen staff?some of whom have been making pierogies for four, five, or seven decades?roll out rounds of dough and top them with sauerkraut, kielbasa, potatoes, and other fillings, following a special recipe espoused by Food Network chef Bobby Flay. Then chefs center each dollop of filling, hand pinch the pierogies into scallop-edged crescents until they cry uncle, and cook them until the dough turns golden. Pierogies Plus dishes out its eponymous treats and other Eastern European dishes both in its McKees Rocks storefront and in an online store, and caters special events, such as graduation parties and weddings.

Operating out of a rehabbed '50s diner, photographer Joseph Balena carries out in-studio and on-location photo shoots that boil over with authenticity. His signature style of lensmanship results in prints that feel as if they were ripped from a fashion magazine. For parties that don't require a photog with legs or human emotions, Balena and his team cart their digital photo booth throughout the Pittsburgh metro area. The hyper-fast booth injects snap-shooting fun into fetes with onsite prints, props, and vampire-sensitive film.
