What You'll Get
Sunday-morning visits to the grocery store are vastly improved by short checkout lines, toothpicked sausage bite samples, and trial-sized ennui. Celebrate humanity's mysterious love affair with tiny morsels with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a walking food tour of the Strip District from 'Burgh Bits & Bites (a $39.45 value, including tax and service fees). Tours meet at the Old St. Patrick's Church courtyard and depart at 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Fridays, as well as occasional Thursdays. Call ahead and namedrop your Groupon to reserve your spot on a tour.
'Burgh Bits & Bites celebrates the melting pot of downtown Pittsburgh cuisine with different tastes from different ethnicities in different Euclidean spaces. Palates will encounter up to six different tastings during the approximately two-hour restaurant crawl. Snack on Italian specialties such as imported meats and cheeses or Mediterranean eats such as hummus, or savor bites with universal acceptance, like pizza. Tours are kept to groups of 10 or less per knowledgeable guide, ensuring that you get individual attention and a cool tour nickname. After the tour, participants will have been fed enough tiny bites to equal a small meal, pushing stomach-o-meters from E (extremely unfilled) to F (full as a submerged timpani). A bottle of water is provided at the start of the tour, and you will have the option to bring your own refreshments. Children and infants are free, as long as they aren't eating.
