Travelling from a far to first game...need a little advice

Hello Everyone,

 

I have been visiting this site for ove a year now, and really like the info, posts, and passion from everyone for the Steelers, I have finally decided to join the site.  I know this site is more for information and opinion pieces; but I figure this would be the best spot to ask for help.  I am from Nova Scotia and I am wondering if any of you can give me a little bit of guidance.  I am going to the Steelers - Titans game next week  with a buddy; it will be our first trip to Pittsburgh and Heinz Field (our homage to Mecca if you will).  If you guys would be so great as to answer some of my questions that would be awesome.  Well, I might as well cut to the chase; thanks to all of you, who help us out.

 

I will be staying at a hotel by the airport (all downtown spots are sold out), is it best to drive in to the stadium and park, or take a taxi?

Where is the best places to drink/party, before/after the game?  Stupid and probably loaded question, but how does tailgating work? we don't do it here, and thus I have no knowledge on how to do it, hahaha.

I must eat Primanti Brothers sandwiches; any suggestions on which ones to eat? 

Can you walk across the Duquesne Incline?

I have to leave early the next morning to catch a flight; is there a fast way to bypass Pittsburgh morning traffic?  I will be heading towards Buffalo the next day.

 

Thanks again to all that provide info.
