Get Yourself Weekend Ready

Ready for the weekend? I usually am by 10:30 Monday morning.  This weekend looks like it has a handful of live shows worth checking out, some interesting fitness classes, and more. Start your planning!

Friday March 4

Miller and The Other Sinners w. Terrance Vaughn Band

  • Where: Pittsburgh Winery- Strip District
  • When: 9:00pm

  • The Pittsburgh Winery has been killing it with its schedule lately, and this show keeps that up. Miller and The Other Sinners is a band from Buffalo, NY that combines blues, Americana, and more into their “Southern Soul” style. Also with them, Terrance Vaughn Trio from Pittsburgh features covers of popular songs with a funk twist.

Saturday March 5

Strange, Rare, and Unusual Sightings

There will also be a presentation on the more scientific side of the idea of existence of Bigfoot. Either way, it is really a fascinating event, and it is definitely family friendly.

As always, if you have any events you want to feature let me know! I’m always on the look out for new things to share! On the agenda for us this weekend is probably cleaning and packing for the upcoming move (we have a hard time staying in once place for long!). Hopefully what you have planned is a little more exciting!
