Farmer's Markets - still open


Even though we had some chilly weather last weekend, it's still peak produce season in western PA.

I often go to the one on Station St in East Liberty and love that it's open from 3pm to 7pm. You can stop on the way home from work and get something fresh for dinner. My daughter goes to the market in Sq Hill to get prepared Greek food to make an instant picnic.

Post-Industrial Carrie Furnaces Tour


Towering 92 feet over the Monongahela River, constructed of 2.5" thick steel plate and lined with refractory brick, Carrie Furnaces 6 and 7 are extremely rare examples of pre World War II iron-making technology. Since the collapse of the region's steel industry in the 1970s and 1980s, these are the only non-operative blast furnaces in the Pittsburgh District to remain standing.

While production may have stopped in 1982, the era of Carrie as an artistic muse was just beginning. Today, Rivers of Steel creates opportunities to experience the site from post-industrial perspective, revealing how guerilla artists, urban explorers, and curators, installation artists and even landscape designers have made creative use of a the space. This specialty tour includes areas of the site that are not included in the Industrial Tour, including an introduction to the Iron Garden Walk. Click on the link for more info.

Pittsburgh Festival of Firsts

Pittsburgh has given a lot of firsts to the world—including the first wire cable suspension bridge, the first movie theater, and Heinz ketchup.


Now, the world is about to give back in a big way as the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust presents its fourth and most diverse Festival of Firsts—an expanded showcase of never-before-seen performing and visual arts attractions. 


Over the course of eight weeks this fall, Pittsburgh’s Cultural District will become a hub of United States, North American, and World Premieres. These works by renowned, globally-minded artists feature a full range of arts disciplines—theater, dance, music, visual art, pieces that defy category—and take place in both traditional and unexpected spaces. From intimate experiences in galleries to physically following a story as it unfolds in an historic church, from mind-blowing outdoor light shows to a circus arts spectacle in the region’s largest theater, each piece will challenge, excite, entertain, question, and leave audiences seeing the world in a new way.

Chatterton






September 14 – October 28
Based on the book by Peter Ackroyd
Directed by Karla Boos


"Chatterton"  spreads out in three dimensions, immersing its mobile audiences (Quantum Theatre is the producer)  in the haunting spaces of Trinity Cathedral Pittsburgh. The play offers a trifecta of poets in three centuries: colorful London with Dickensian characters bristling with humor, deep debates on what is real, what is fake in the intertwining worlds of art and dinner!

Find out More, including the menu schedule. Chefs from some of Pittsburgh's most popular restaurants are participating.
