Hey You. It's Time To Go Out More In 2016: Social Club January 8

social_club_2__1_.jpg

  Did you make a new year’s resolution to go out more? Explore new parts of the city? Try something new? Well, you have come to the right place. Social Club lets you know all the fun happenings going on every week in Pittsburgh. This week, WESA’s Josh and Yelp Pittsburgh’s Rachel are joined by WESA’s Sarah Kovash.

Let’s start 2016 by Hooking Up…with Second City. Did you know Tina Fey and Steve Carell came from there? But so did a lot of others like Keegan-Michael Key and Stephen Colbert and Bonnie Hunt and Mike Myers and Tim Meadows and Bob Odenkirk! Why are they never mentioned? I could go on and on! All you ever hear about our Tina Fey and Steve Carell…who are amazing, don’t get us wrong, but urg…end rant. Anyway, Pittsburgh Public Theater presents this production from January 7th- January 9th at the O’Reilly Theater.

Todd Glass is at Arcade Comedy Theater, January 7th-9th as well, so you can make this a weekend of comedy! It’s a nice intimate setting for an enjoyable show. Josh wants you to know Todd Glass is kind of a big deal. Also, fun fact, Sarah is a comedy groupie. The secret past of WESA employees…

Before you see a show it is customary to get dinner beforehand. Luckily, it’s Restaurant Week here in the ‘burgh. It runs from January 11th-17th. You can check out a list of the restaurants here. As Sarah puts it, go to all the restaurants you can’t normally afford in real life. Who knows? You might discover your next favorite hot spot.  Want to make a reservation? Use the Yelp App.

That concludes this week’s Social Club. We wanted to talk a little Star Wars this episode but SOMEONE (cough cough Josh) HASN’T SEEN IT YET! Remember kids, no spoilers.
