Meet Pittsburgh’s other sax man, a best bakers & run all the 5K races

A look at all the other things to do in Pittsburgh this weekend.

The annual Three Rivers Arts Festival starts this weekend. That means it will likely rain for some of the next 10 days. It almost always rains during the Arts Festival. Rain or shine, the show must go on.

Pittsburgh’s Other Sax Man

Meet Roger Romero, aka Feralcat, A Pittsburgh saxophonist who is bringing the sax to a rock’n’roll band. We caught up with Feralcat and talked with him about the collaborative music scene in Pittsburgh.

From Momofuku to the Whitfield

We sat down with pastry chef Casey Renee to find out how she ended up in the kitchen and what it was like to be a participant on the Food Network’s “America’s Best Baker”.

Running through the Neighborhoods

If running 26.2 miles isn’t your thing, we understand. There is no need to run through 13 neighborhoods in one day when you can check out a different neighborhood each weekend. We’ve put together a guide to all of the neighborhood 5K races.

A few other things to do around town if it is too wet to head to the Arts Festival….
