Snowed-In Saturdays
Multiple locations, Bloomfield and Garfield

Get over your case of the winter moops with a special seasonal deal. White Whale Bookstore teamed up with Trace Brewing and Two Frays Brewery for a discount temporary program aimed at supporting small, independent businesses in Bloomfield and Garfield. As announced in a Trace Instagram post, from now through April 1, you can pick up a free coupon with purchase and, each Saturday, redeem them at any three of the participating businesses. Coupons can be used for $1 off drinks at Trace or Two Frays. The coupons can also be used to take 10% off a book purchase at White Whale, or $1 off any draft beer in the bookstore's cafe area. Coupons will also be used to enter customers in a raffle for a special prize pack.

Salmon tartare is shown at a Fet-Fisk pop-up dinner at Pear and the Pickle in Troy Hill on Mon., Jan. 20, 2020

4786 Liberty Ave., Bloomfield. fetfisk.net

Fet-Fisk, a self-described "multi-faceted food project" that hosts pop-up dinners and more around the city, announced that it will move into a new space. Hal Klein of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that Fet-Fisk signed a lease to open a "full-service restaurant" in what was formerly Lombardozzi’s, an Italian spot that operated for nearly 50 years in Bloomfield before closing in 2021. The location will provide a permanent home for Fet-Fisk, a venture originally created by Sarah LaPonte and Nik Forsberg to bring “loosely Nordic” cuisine to various local restaurants and markets (Fet-Fisk is now run by Forsberg, Kate Romane, and Greg Austin). An opening date has yet to be set.
