Giant Eagle's Market District store at Settlers Ridge in Robinson is the first supermarket to sell wine in Pennsylvania since before Prohibition.
Get ready to pop some corks. Starting Friday, Giant Eagle will begin selling wine at its Market District store at Settlers Ridge in Robinson — the first supermarket to sell wine in Pennsylvania since before Prohibition. The O’Hara-based grocer will mark the occasion with a ceremonial champagne toast at the store Friday morning attended by Giant Eagle officials and House Speaker Mike Turzai, R-Marshall, primary sponsor of a wine privatization bill...

Lyft gift cards available at Starbucks plus get an extra $5 for Starbucks itself. And if you haven't used Lyft yet, enter promo code RideShareCredit in payments before requesting a ride for discounts on your initial rides.
Since teaming up with Starbucks last year, we’ve been hard at work collaborating on ways to bring you more rides. Today, we’re excited to announce two new additions: Star rewards for morning Lyft commuters, and the first-ever Lyft gift card, available exclusively at participating Starbucks stores. Start Your Day Off Right Starbucks is a top Lyft destination, and a quarter of our rides take place during commute hours. Because you’r...

+Pizza Hut On your survey at TellPizzaHut.com, when it rejected the actual time I entered, I tried entering the example time on the page (03:05PM) and it rejected that also! I also tried the actual time without the colon, without the "PM" and even military time, both with and without the colon, to no avail. It seems no matter what format you enter the time in, it just always says Sorry, that is not a valid answer. Please try again.

Projects (Kickstarter, etc.) and StartUps  - 
 
A +Kickstarter project for an Escape Room, ending Saturday. Unless it gets a lot of support, it doesn't look like it's going to get fully funded.
THE escape room game. Your team is challenged to discover clues, solve puzzles & manipulate contraptions TOGETHER to escape in time!

Want to meet 50-60 of the ARG players who submitted many of the Pokémon Go stops and gyms? Before there was Pokémon Go from the now independent Niantic Labs there was +Ingress from Google's +Niantic Project. Pittsburgh is one of the cities which has held an official First Saturday event for the past 22 months. This month's event is tomorrow (Saturday) at 9:30 am in Schenley Plaza. Some players will probably hang out at The Porch or somewhere and there's sure to be Lures.

There's a 9:30am? I thought the day started at noon.

Hints and Tips  - 
 
I accidentally bumped the wrong sign-in option while walking and now Pokemon Go refuses to give me the options again so I can sign in correctly. I've tried going into Accounts and also Google in Settings (Android phone), long pressing the menu button once the game starts, restarting the phone, going to Connected Apps and Sites, searching Google and YouTube (which all seem to show how to log out normally after you have been playing the game rather than how get back to where you can sign in the right way) and various other less obvious things, including going through a bunch of the screens in the app (clear up to the point where you are customizing your avatar) and cannot find any place where it shows Pokemon as an app or lets you sign out! How in the world do you get to the screen where you can choose the sign in method?

Great restaurant. Used their charging station for my Hyundai Sonata. Need reservations in advance, though - I was unable to get reservations for the same day.

Short walks to a couple different overlooks. One is more strenuous to walk back up. Tours available to walk under the bridge.
