Steelers and Eagles fans will be taking over Big Game Waterfront Grill for the fourth annual Pennsylvania Day Wednesday, Jan. 29. The fun-filled party begins at noon with Philly cheesesteaks and Yuengling beer, along with plenty of other Pennsylvania favorites.

"If you're from the Keystone State, grab your friends and head over to Big Game for food and fun Wednesday!" said Jaime Huffman, PR director for Salty Sam's Waterfront Adventures. "I bet you didn't know that Pittsburgh has over 300 sets of city maintained steps. If they were stacked on top of each other, they would reach over 26,000 feet high. They would measure higher than a lot of the Himalayan Mountains. Brush up on your trivia for a chance to win fun prizes that day. Fans are invited to come out wearing Steelers and Eagles team colors."

This will mark the fourth Pennsylvania Day the waterfront sports bar's held.

"Last year's turnout was great. We had a full house of Pennsylvania natives and they danced away to Frank Torino's music," Jamie said. "We decided to feature Pennsylvania for one of our States Days because we had a ton of requests from our customers. It is the fourth annual event, so we hope it continues to get bigger and better. We added pierogies to the menu this year they are my personal favorite, so I can't wait to enjoy those and a Philly cheesesteak!"

Frank Torino will provide live entertainment from noon to 4 p.m., followed by Erik Huffman from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. There's sure to be plenty of music, dancing, trivia, drink and food specials, along with classic football games playing on the big screen TVs.

"I'm a huge Steelers fan and grew up in Cranberry Township, a suburb of Pittsburgh," said Colleen McCaffrey. "We have a blast at Big Game on Pennsylvania Day! Our friends travel from all over to attend the party, so it is a fun reunion for all of us!"
