We have finally thawed out from our Skate Date last weekend. Thank you to everyone who came out to support 412 Food Rescue at our debut event. Missed the Skate Date? You can help 412 Food Rescue in their mission to end food waste by becoming a Food Rescue Hero. Check out the video of our team using the Food Rescue Hero app.

Also, please plan to join us next Thursday on 3/14 for Pi(e) Squared, our Pi Day celebration at East End Brewing in Larimer. We’re partnering with Piebird to bring you some sweet deals and fun.


This week(end) in Pittsburgh: March 7 – 13, 2019

Here are our picks for the best ways to explore Pittsburgh over the next seven days:

Thursday 3/7 – BINGO

Strange Roots Bingo Night @ Strange Roots Experimental Ales (Millvale) – With prizes that include T-shirts, growlers, sandwiches, and Twinkies, who wouldn’t want to play bingo at Strange Roots?!?

Friday 3/8 – ZINE FAIR

Pittsburgh Zine Fair Pop-Up Party @ Small Mall – Artist Christina Lee has curated a selection of zines from the Pittsburgh Zine fair for this event. There will also be a panel discussion with Pittsburgh zine artists, Aaron Regal, Madeline Campbell, Laura Pall Mall, Ceci Ebitz, Rachel Ann Brickner, & Jennifer Lisa. Small Mall is a store that features the work of Pittsburgh artists.


Saturday 3/9 – LEARN

Guided Tour: Pittsburgh’s Attic From Glass to Ketchup @ Heinz History Center – included with admission to the museum, take a guided tour of three current exhibits and see some unique items that aren’t on display.

Sunday 3/10 – MEET UP w/MURDERINOS

Murderino MeetUp @ Enix Brewing Company – Show off your #ssdgm tattoo or your “stay out of the forest” embroidery, socialize with your fellow Pittsburgh murderinos. (Murderino = fan of the podcast My Favorite Murder.)

The Cat Video Fest is screening at Row House Cinema in Lawrenceville March 10 – March 21, 2019. Check online for tickets first, Row House is a small theater, and the Cat Video Fest screenings often sell out ahead of time.

Wednesday 3/13 – SWEET TREATS
