A ribbon cutting celebrating Sewickley's newest sports bar is scheduled for noon on Friday.
It’s no coincidence the sign at the front door invites patrons to "seat yourself wherever you’d like." Bob Miller wants “Sidelines Beer House” in Sewickley to feel inviting to customers. “Sewickley needs a neighborhood bar and that’s what we are,” said Miller of Pittsburgh, owner of the new business.

With hours of operation from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily, the casual and affordably-priced sports bar allows patrons to grab a bite to eat at just about any time of the day.

Construction on a new township hotel could begin as early as this summer.
A representative from the Pittsburgh-based firm Gateway Engineers last night presented an early plan for a new Hilton hotel and neighboring office building to be constructed on GSK Drive in Moon. Engineer Patrick Cooper said developers plan to construct a 117-room Hilton Homewood Suites hotel and neighboring 130,000 square-foot office building with surrounding parking lots on the roadway, which is located off Fed Ex Drive. Cooper said construction on the project is under a "tight" schedule and could be underway as early as July. Developers in 2008 planned to construct a 240-room hotel and adjoined office complex on the street, but backed out of the plan after the economy went into a recession later that year.

A new Moon business will serve as a hybrid car wash and coffee shop.
Eric Wroblewski said it will be the first business of its kind in Allegheny County: A car and dog wash paired with a drive-through coffee shop. "Basically, it's very unique," Wroblewski said.
