Sit Back and Relax

Enjoy a special experience while someone else does the work with one of these mesmerizing activities.

  • Health, wellness and peace of mind are essential at Evolve Wellness Spa in Shadyside. Treat yourself and your partner to a luxurious and rejuvenating couple's massage, yoga, aromatherapy or a skin treatment for a day of pure relaxation. 
  • If beer and a movie is more your speed, check out the adjoined Row House Cinema and Bierport in Lawrenceville. Pick up some craft brews (they'll even chill the beers for you!) and take them over to see a film from the week's lineup.
