Early in the show, Howard said he and Beth were evacuated from their home in the Hamptons because of Hurricane Irene and decided to go to Beth’s parents’ home in Pittsburgh: “I knew the hurricane was going to be downgraded but I couldn’t guarantee [Beth]…Long story short, I spent 3 days in Pittsburgh, which was actually not bad at all. We had, kind of, fun.” Howard said it was his 1st time visiting Pittsburgh–a visit long overdue, as it’s Beth’s hometown. While there, the couple visited Petco (For kitty litter: “I tell you, I’m the worst planner when it comes to hurricane planning.”), and a couple of restaurants. One place even issued a press release with the details of their visit: “There was a whole big article about what I ate and what I tipped. I was like, ‘Wow, I thought Pittsburgh was mellow. [But] it’s worse than New York.'”
