Quick questions for the locals

Hello Pirates fans,

A wandering Atlanta Braves fan here, just wanting to ask a few questions to those local to Pittsburgh.

I'm coming to PNC Park to see the Pirates host the Washington Nationals on Sunday.  I'm literally only going to be in town that day, and driving off to, well Washington in the evening.  So with so little time, I just wanted to ask you folks for a little bit of advice.

Tickets - Does PNC Park have a scalper scene that I could score a decently priced single?  Or am I going to have to relegate to at-the-door general admission?

The Park - I tend to wander around every ball park I go to regardless, but I always want to ask those who visit more often, what they would suggest I make higher priority.

Food (in the park) - does PNC have anything that is a "must-eat?"

Food (outside) - so I pretty much have time for one good solid meal before hitting the road.  Where should I go?  Just how many places offer RoethlisBurgers, and where can I find the best one?  What particular food is synonimous with Pittsburgh, and something I should definitely try?  Any good place to get breakfast?  My flight lands early in the morning.

I've worked with a surprising amount of Pittsburgh transplants in Atlanta, and they've forwarned me of Pittsburgh Portions, and some of the dialects to expect in Steeler Country.  But I love food, so I welcome all suggestions.

Anyway, thank you in advance to those who read this and can give me some great suggestions.  I look forward to seeing PNC - everyone whom I've spoken with who's already been there say it's probably one of the most beautiful parks in all of baseball.


PS - if you guys are interested, I can put together an unbiased, outsider's write-up about my experience at PNC after my trip, if it occurs.
