Whether pre-game tailgating or just hanging out with friends, Pittsburghers sure know how to party. While the city is known for some of the best bars with drinking games in Pittsburgh, summer is the perfect season to step outside for some different bar activities. With the warm temps and longer days replacing the cold, gloomy weather that drives everyone indoors, local bars are offering one of Pittsburghers’ favorite pastimes: cornhole. The region’s love of this lawn game has created a demand for everything from casual last-minute games to city-wide cornhole tournaments. Try your hand at a game of cornhole at these five Pittsburgh-area bars.
