Considering Pittsburgh? Here’s $100k!3

Posted by Deirdre // 10-24-2011

 

No, not from little ol’ Bklyn vs Burbs and Beyond, from the city of Pittsburg, itself! They’re holding a contest to attract new blood to the city, specifically of the older more disposable-income holding type (over 45, to be exact). You just have to tell them your dream! I’m not sure that $100k could cover our family’s moving expenses AND finance my dream, but I have some time to think about it since I’m a few years away from 45 (sigh).

I don’t know anything about the place, except that there are beautiful suburbs and it happens to be the setting for one of my all-time favorite movies, Wonder Boys. Rent it, at least.

    At least you know that “Wonder Boys” was located there!
    And did you know that it’s spelled with an “h”? Pittsburgh. Or perhaps you’re talking about Pittsburg, Kansas?

      Whoops! Duh (or Du), I did actually know that. I just misspelled and didn’t bother to proof! Thanks for the correct – I definitely meant Pennsylvania.
