Here are a dozen places to visit in Downtown/Strip District, East End, South Side and South Hills for the best tacos in Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Public Market, in its new space at 2401 Penn Ave. in the Strip District, is launching a "Friends of the Market" program.
You pledge support at different, possibly-tax-deductible amounts -- for $25 (friend level), $50 (partner), $100 (patron) and $250 (business) -- and you get corresponding perks (such as a sticker, tote bag, free meeting-space access, etc.).
You can learn more at the market's first annual tasting event from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31. You get nibbles and sips and music by Broke, Stranded & Ugly.
Tickets ($25 before Jan. 26, $35 after) also get you a year membership in the Friends program, and you'll be listed as a founding member on the wall.
