I know for the past couple of years, they actually raised a ball during the countdown to the new year. It's supposed to represent brighter times ahead for the city. Although, I haven't been in the city of Pittsburgh for First Night since 2000 when I was at a friend's house in the Allentown neighborhood.

I think the Ball Raising takes place near the Cultural District near the Highmark Building if I'm not mistaken...



Do not bring stranger girt into your room. The stranger girt is dangerous, it will hurt your life.

Brighter times? I'm not sure if I can take that seriously.

Yeah, me neither, especially since the city, once again, did NOTHING to aggressively expand its local economy after weathering a recession...

I guess one sign of positive things is that the amount of jobs open is fairly high according to the Tribune Review (40-some thousand openings throughout the region). The article said if every one of those jobs was to be filled, the region's unemployment rate would plunge to 4.4% or somewhere around there...

Then again, I really didn't take that article very seriously...
