Not my top 25, just 25,” says WQED producer Rick Sebak at the start of this fast and fun documentary celebrating pieces of Pittsburgh. He takes us for a streetcar ride to Andy Warhol’s grave, points out the often overlooked beauty of our retaining walls, and shows us where we can get some local bubbly water at Pittsburgh Seltzer Works. Then there’s the Steel City Big Pour craft beer festival and Construction Junction. Rick introduces members of the Save Race Street Committee and finds a mosaic octopus in Friendship. He gets invited to a porch party, finds out about the burgers at Tessaro’s, and visits the Carnegie Library, among other places. He meets local house historian Carol Peterson and photographer Mark Pomocki, then spends some time at the ToonSeum before ending up in Rankin at Emil’s Lounge, famous for its fish sandwiches. It’s a bright and quirky look at just over two dozen things that help make Pittsburgh a good and surprising place to live. Run Time: 75 Minutes + 1 Hour Bonus material - Also on this DVD: the complete documentary NORTH PARK vs SOUTH PARK about the ongoing rivalry between fans of two of Allegheny County’s biggest and best parks. (You know North Park may have a lake, but South Park has a herd of buffalo!)
