This week has seen the arrival of thousands of new and returning students to Oakland! Many of our businesses have helped to roll out the welcome wagon.
The excitement and fresh energy of Oakland has been noticeable as we welcome back our university students.
To help show Oakland’s hospitality, several of our OBID member businesses took to the sidewalks. Hello Bistro handed out their famous fresh cut french fries, Cricket Wireless and Dollar Bank set up outside to introduce themselves to new students, and Selection Boutique set up a sidewalk sale. The OBID set up right in the heart of move-in at the University of Pittsburgh, distributing business promotions to new students and their families.
Welcome back students! We are so glad you are here!
The Carnegie Mellon Professional Development Services Department is looking for opportunities to share information about your business with their newest employees!

One of Pittsburgh’s longest active dental laboratory technicians, Chuck Winter, will be celebrating his retirement after 50 years of service at the dental practice of Drs. Miller (retired), Werrin, Gruendel and Boles. His retirement dinner is being celebrated this Friday and will be attended by the entire staff of Drs. Werrin, Gruendel and Boles. Mr. Winter has participated in the reconstruction and vitality of four generations of thankful dental patients. Congratulations!
Thanks to the fantastic support from our OBID membership, we had another record-breaking Oakland Restaurant Week!
Last week we celebrated another overwhelmingly successful Oakland Restaurant Week! But don’t take our word for it – here is what a couple of this year’s participants have to say about the promotion:
Jason from Pittsburgh Pretzel Sandwich Shop says: “This was the best Restaurant Week yet! We had lines out the door every day except for Friday.”
Ting from Sushi Fuku may have put it best, when he explained “Last week was crazy. Crazy busy!”
