4:21 Paul Kletter and Mary Beth Karabinos

Travelers Rest owners Paul Kletter and Mary Beth Karabinos share some history of their iron manufacture headquarters turned hotel. They say the Greater Allegheny Passage trail played a big part in deciding to buy the building. Travelers Rest is sort-of like a bed and breakfast, where they’ll make the bed and you make the breakfast, according to Paul and Mary Beth. Good luck finding any cobwebs in this spotless space!

17:25  Jeff Roupe

Pittsburgh Today Live cameraman Jeff Roupe is not used to being in front of the camera, but he still shares some professional tips for the camera set up.  Despite being from West Virginia, his time in Pittsburgh has been nothing short of a growing food-centered city. Hopefully his punctuality rubs off on the jags!

31:46 Josh Axelrod

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writer and groom-to-be, Josh Axelrod, shares the details of his bird’s-eye-view wedding. He tells us about his plans to incorporate both his and his future wife’s religions in the ceremony. His celebration as a newlywed will last an entire month, so do not expect Josh to be available in October! Though you can expect him on your Twitter feed for the Steeler’s games.

47:42  Zack Perkins and Troy Szymanski

Zack and Troy or Bill and Ted? This duo of the band Too Hearted  amaze everyone with their music in the great room of the Travelers Rest.  They’ve been with full bands before are feeling funky as a duo!
