Biking, pork chops and ginger beer

Tom Friday's Market Brighton Heights

Tom Friday's Market. This popular neighborhood butcher shop can get crowded, but it's a great stop for reasonably priced, high-quality meats, with quick no-nonsense service no matter how busy. Try the bulk breakfast sausage or the stuffed pork chops. 3639 California Ave., Brighton Heights

Scout Dog Collars

Scout Dog Collars. Locally made, sturdy dog collars in all manner of stylish designs — even a gay-pride rainbow pattern! Named for the owner's dog, rescued from the side of the road. www.scoutdogcollars.com

National Bike Challenge

National Bike Challenge. Maybe the best reason to join some 44,000 riders nationally, racking up miles and raising cycling awareness through Sept. 30, is local: You'll help Pittsburgh retain its crown in the perennial Rust Belt Battle of the Bikes against Cleveland. www.nationalbikechallenge.org

The Last Magazine

The Last Magazine. Reporter Michael Hastings' posthumously published novel is a mordantly funny takedown of his former employer (Newsweek) in the early 2000s, and the media's blind rush to support the invasion of Iraq.

Ginger Beer

Crabbie's Ginger Beer. This alcoholic ginger beer is a nice change of pace for beer and cider fans. The company is based in Edinburgh, Scotland, but you can find Crabbie's at a few local bars, including Belvedere's, in Lawrenceville.

The Trials of Ali

The Trials of Muhammad Ali. This 2013 doc is a fascinating account of Ali's conversion to Islam, his conscientious objection to the Vietnam War, and the ensuing trials he endured, from the court of public opinion to the Supreme Court. On DVD and various streaming services
