This weekend will be a helluva good brine.

Editor’s note: Every week we ship an email newsletter featuring the region’s most exciting career opportunities. We’ve lovingly called it This Week in Jobs (aka TWIJ — “twidge”). Below is this week’s edition; it’s meant to live in your inbox. Sign up for the newsletter here.

It seems that Pittsburgh has reached the “acceptance” stage when it comes to its identity as the “City of Pickles.” This weekend, if you are so enticed, you can register for Picklesburgh’s Pickle Juice Drinking Contest, where the winner will be crowned Mayor of Picklesburgh.

If winning public office via competitive drinking isn’t enticing, you can also stop downtown for live music, pickled snacks, and other such fermented fun.

In a pickle for weekend plans? Trudge downtown and head toward the giant, inflatable dill pickle for a uniquely Pittsburgh experience.
