The Pittsburgh Bitcoin Users monthly meetup is an informal gathering of local bitcoin enthusiasts at a local bar. There are usually a few traders willing to buy/sell bitcoin/litecoin/etc in person, and plenty of help available for new users who are just getting started.
This is a free event held on the 1st Wednesday of every month. It's open to the public and anyone is welcome to attend.
Those who would rather not go to a bar and/or aren't 21+ may want to consider attending a quarterly PBU info session instead. These are held in a more formal setting with speakers/presentations and open discussion.
