Hope everyone is sailing calmly through the week. Take some time to make some weekend plans now- I promise it will make the rest of the week fly by!

Come support a great cause!

Saturday September 24

A craft center from the Laurel Highlands will also be hosting art demonstrations throughout the show. There will be art, entertainment, and plenty of food at this family friendly event. If you head there early enough, you’ll be able to catch the Mt. Lebanon Farmers’ Market, too!

Songwriters in the Cellar

  • Cost: $12 in advance and $15 at the door (if available)
  • This 21+ event features local songwriters (and sometimes visiting ones!) collaborating in a unique atmosphere to create a night that involves part singing and part storytelling. The hosts for this evening’s event are Morgan Erina, Max Somerville, and Clinton Clegg…just a few of the many talented local artists we are fortunate enough to have in our city. This event will likely sell out so grab your tickets now- you don’t want to miss it.

Sunday September 25

Beer Belly Yoga

  • Where: East End Brewing- 147 Julius Street
  • When: 10:00am-12:00pm

  • Head to East End Brewing for this 21+ yoga event. With your ticket, you receive a 45 minute yoga class in the taproom, an East End Brewing Co. mug filled with beer, and a token to take a free yoga class at I am Yoga (Squirell Hill). Doors open at 10 and the class starts promptly at 10:30. They will have yoga mats if you need one. Seems like a great way to start a Sunday!
