Barbie 2016: Make America Pink Again: Social Club February 19


 You survived Valentine's Day and the whole gang, WESA's Josh + Sarah and Yelp Pittsburgh's Rachel, are here to tell you about the happenings here in Pittsburgh. It's going to be a busy weekend, so let's get to it! 

History Uncorked is going to be this Friday at 7pm at the Heinz History Center. Join other young professionals and remember all the fun toys from your past.  Celebrate toys from the upcoming Toys of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s exhibit, enjoy drinks, a live DJ and a dance floor!

The Grifters will be performing at Atlas Bottle Works this Friday for Bluegrass Fridays. Swing by at 9:15 for the show and choose from over 700 different beers to enjoy while listening to some great music.

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre presents Peter Pan, closing this weekend at the Benedum Center. Enjoy this classic with the whole family!  

Pittsburgh Public Theater’s Guys and Dolls is at the O’Reilly Theater and will only be around for two more weeks!  It’s a classic and you would probably recognize a lot of the songs and STOP EVERYTHING BECAUSE JOSH WAS IN A PRODUCTION OF GUYS AND DOLLS. SOMEONE FIND THE VIDEO! 

Ghost Hunting 101 with Ghosts N’at Paranormal Adventures is this Saturday at the Carnegie  Free Library. You guys, this is a real thing and we couldn’t be more pumped. Learn the history of ghost hunting, investigation techniques and go on a REAL ghost hunt afterwards! AHHHHH spooky.

This weekend its going to be in the 50s which is pretty much summer weather, so head on down to Tiki Night at Il Tetto (the rooftop bar above Sienna Mercato). Enjoy a Polynesian-inspired cocktail as they turn their rooftop garden into a tropical island paradise! Summer breeze, makes me feel fine, blowing through the jasmine in my mindddddddddd ba da da da da da.

Sorry, back to Social Club.  

Have you gotten into the adult-coloring fad? According to Sarah, it’s relaxing, but it’s still work. If you disagree with her, check out BYOB Coloring at TechShop in Bakery Square. Coloring is relaxing, but you know what makes it even MORE relaxing? Drinks. Come down to this 21+ event.

As you can see, it's a busy weekend in Pittsburgh. Tune in next week for brand-new events!

Correction: Toys of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s is opening March 4th at the Heinz History Center. We apologize if this caused any inconvenience.
