Keep your beer cold with a cozy

The look these bottles of beer are sporting? "Pub Sweaters." I saw them at Mt. Lebanon's Winterfest this past Saturday. The 100-percent wool cozies are hand-knitted by Kate Hitmar, and available at Lebo's Koolkat Designs as well as Shadyside's Pittsburgh Center for the Arts for $20, or $25 for bi-color and $28 for tricolor ones.

You can read about them and the coasters in the photo, about the opening of Everyday Noodles in Squirrel Hill, and much more at The Forks blog: pgplate. com/forks.
