All Squirrel Hill businesses are eligible for inclusion, and standard services. Additional services can be added. As part of "The Best of the Burgh" network, all businesses are editorially evaluated prior to inclusion. This helps maintain a sense of value to the visitor, and keep the quality high.

Our goal is to increase awareness of what is available, and what is going on in, Squirrel Hill, and to promote the businesses "off Forbes" which seem to be forgotten in almost every other marketing or promotional effort.
