Christmas Spirit of Pittsburgh

On the last week before Christmas, for activities with holiday cheer, here are five suggestions, all with a Pittsburgh twist:

The Nutcracker
We are attending the Saturday performance of this enchanted holiday tale I've only seen at Lincoln Center. The Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre sets the stage here, complete with a twinkling view from Mt. Washington.

It's a Wonderful Life screening at Regent Square Theatre
The classic Christmas movie with a Scrooge-like plot is being shown free from December 18-22 in exchange for a non-perishable item. (This supposedly was Western Pennsylvania native and silver screen legend Jimmy Stewart's favorite to film.)

Take a docent-led tour of the Clayton House in its holiday glory, or enjoy a special menu and seating at Cafe at the Frick.

Holiday Pops with Marvin Hamlisch
See reindeer and sing Christmas Carols in Heinz Hall with the Golden Globe-nominated, award-winning conductor.

Pittsburgh Center for the Arts Solstice Sale
Last. Minute. Shopping. Even better with a coupon.
