Openings

Lucky Sign Spirits
Feeling lucky? Try a bottle of bourbon or gin from the city’s newest distillery. Their Millvale storefront has only been open a few weeks, but founders Christian Kahle and Matt Brudnok have big plans for their future, according to NEXTpittsburgh. The duo hopes to produce limoncello, amaro, dandelion vodka, and more alongside the flagship spirits. 215 North Ave., Millvale. enterprisespirits.com

Antney’s Ice Cream
After opening in mid-June and closing soon after for health and pandemic-related reasons, the beloved Green Tree ice cream shop is scooping once again. 1358 Poplar St., Crafton. facebook.com/antneys

Closures

Larder of East End
Chef Justin Severino’s casual, counter-service restaurant inside of East End Brewing Company has announced that the last day of carryout service will be Fri., Aug. 21.

Fairlane
The Mt. Lebanon new-American eatery and bottle shop has announced via Instagram that it will be closing permanently on Sat., Aug. 22.

Changes

In addition to takeout on the weekends, the five-year-old Central and Eastern European vegan restaurant has added a natural wine store to its offerings.

Cancellations

The Pittsburgh Pierogi Festival
The annual fest, which is held at Kennywood Park and features over 40 pierogi vendors, has been canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. All ticket holders will be refunded and 2020 festival merchandise will be sold to benefit the Pittsburgh Emergency Medicine Foundation.
