Top Five Halloween Events around the ‘burgh

Since October begins tomorrow, I want to get in the Halloween spirit. The holiday may only last one day, but I think there are enough events around Pittsburgh to make it last a month (and maybe even farther). Somethings on the list aren’t exactly the cheapest, but I think picking one or two really fun events would be worth it. I’ve picked five haunting happenings around Pittsburgh for everyone to take a look at. Continue reading

Gallery Crawl recap.

gallery crawlMy roommate and I headed out to the Gallery Crawl last night, which was actually pretty easy because it was right outside our door. The Gallery Crawl is a great thing for Downtown. It really transforms the area into something great. There are people allover, live music, food, and multiple things to do. We went to Wood Street Galleries, Space, 937 Liberty (Currency), 943 Liberty (Path: An Installation by Elin Hasdottir), Toonseum, Future Tenant, 707/709 Penn Gallery, and the Project Pop Up: Night Market.

This week’s events: Sept. 24.

Dahntahn Pittsburgh is actually having quite a busy Friday.

The Cultural District’s quarterly Gallery Crawl will be happening from 5:30 p.m. until 9 p.m Friday. For those of you who haven’t heard of the Gallery Crawl, it is a free event. Many of the Cultural District’s art galleries are open during this time, and people are given a map with each location, so they are able to crawl at their own pace to each of them. The Gallery Crawl also features performances. This crawl will be featuring live music by The Glenn Strother Project in Katz Plaza, free yoga classes, dance classes and performances, short films, and more. To find out all that will be going on, look here. Continue reading
