Grubbing: Primanti Brothers – Various locations
Sure it’s a local chain but it is also a Pittsburgh institution dating back to the 1930s. The local favorite is the cheese steak but the corned beef also gets rave reviews.

Sight Seeing: Andy Warhol Museum – 117 Sandusky Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15213

Carrying some of the higher end denim lines, Denim Saloon’s knowledgeable staff will help you find your perfect fit and finish.

Grubbing: Hartland BBQ – 5402 NW Radial Hwy, Omaha, NE 68104
You can get a double meat sandwich at Hartland- a mixture of brisket, chicken or pork. Enough said.

Sight Seeing: Old Market District – Downtown Omaha bordered by South 10th St
The Old Market District in Omaha retains its historic features with streets paved in brick and many original warehouses- although they are now mainly lofts. The neighborhood has shopping, restaurants and a number of art galleries where you can pass the time before the games start.
