“Happiest Season” Was So Pittsburgh

I don’t know about you but our Thanksgiving holiday weekend was spent watching Happiest Season… twice. Of course, you already know what Happiest Season is — the first queer holiday rom-com backed by a major studio. Starring Kristen Stewart, Mackenzie Davis, and the always infectious Dan Levy, the Hulu exclusive was released on Wednesday and it has been the talk of the Twitter-verse (we won’t delve into the debate on Harper’s choices right now). Folx in Pittsburgh have certainly been enjoying the film for all the notable scenes FILMED RIGHT HERE IN THE ‘BURGH.

Here are some of our favorite Pittsburgh highlights we enjoyed seeing in Happiest Season:

(Cation: mild spoilers ahead)
