So what made the one-time Portlandia guest star fall for what she refers to as "almost the Portland of the East"?
"I infiltrated with the locals, which I think is really important to do whenever you're on location," she told Marie Claire. "Whenever I go to a new city, I always navigate around by going to all the vintage stores. It's a really good way to find the cool neighborhoods. And to meet like-minded people."
Below she shares with us the fruits of her labor—her favorite spots to eat, drink, shop, and hang in her adopted city:
The Carnegie Museums: On par with the most beautiful museums I've been to throughout the world.
The Andy Warhol Museum: The film floor is worth the visit, not to mention the gift store.
The Manor: An indie movie theater that gets all the must-see films, plus they serve wine and beer. Woop woop!
Arsenal Bowling Lanes: An old-timey bowling alley with great tunes and (yes, you guessed it) a full bar.
Frick Park: Rolling hills and trails from easy to difficult—this park has everything.
The Round Corner Cantina: The best tequila and tacos, and the hottest bartenders to boot.
Fukudo: A tiny Japanese spot in Bloomfield. It blew my mind with every visit.
Gooski's: My favorite smoky dive bar with the best juke box in town.
Lava Lounge: A south side college trap, but with really trippy decor and an '80s night must-dance party.
Kelly's Bar: It's got a darn good martini.
Prestogeorge: I'm so addicted to some of the teas that I may have to have someone send me a box to tide me over till next season.
Hey Betty!: A vintage store with amazing twenties to eighties garments.
Avalon Exchange: A consignment shop in Squirrel Hill. I found some Balenciaga jeans and a Stella McCartney cashmere sweater.
