I'm travelling to Pittsburgh for the first time this November to watch my first ever NFL game as well. And have a couple of questions regarding thanksgiving weekend and the match.
1. Is there people going to bars to watch football and drink beer on thanksgiving, and are the bars open untill late? I'm not sure if i should take the plane on friday, or if it's worth travelling one day earlier for thanksgiving if everybody stays at home that day. I'm travelling from Norway.
2. Is Pittsburgh a OK place to go as a visiting supporter(Packers), are the people friendly to visitors in jerseys etc?
3. Is there any must do things or bars/tailgates to go on before the match?
Thanks in advance. :)
