Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of gift baskets and more from A Basket of Pittsburgh.
Locally made goods take center stage in A Basket of Pittsburgh's city-centric gift-vessels. Laud the Steelers' AFC North dominance with the City of Champions, a willow-style basket loaded with Iron City beer nuts, Miller's Sweet & Hot mustard, team buttons, a Terrible Towel, and enough snacks to load Bill Cowher's angriest jutted-out jaw twice ($75).
