1. Prantl's Bakery
5525 Walnut Street
Pittsburgh, PA 15232
You’ve burned through calories on a powerwalk to Shadyside; this is one time it pays to eat them back up. A slice of Prantl’s burnt almond torte is a bit like nibbling magic: custard between layers of white cake smothered in buttercream and topped with almond slices. Even if you’re not a nut fan, virtually anything you buy at Prantl’s will be out-of-this-world (and it’ll leave your wallet unscathed).
2. Massage Envy
5836 Forbes Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15217
After hours hunched over a Calculus problem set, a massage sounds pretty great. Get everything from a hot stone massage to a facial at Massage Envy in Squirrel Hill. Try calling ahead to see if they're offering any specials, then gear up for an hour or two of indulgent relaxation.
