In Defense Of Cargo Shorts: Social Club August 5


    Nothing divides us more than the debate over if cargo shorts are acceptable apparel or not. We here at Social Club are ready to put a stop to that debate and say once and for all that, fine, you can wear cargo shorts. No more judgment. WESA’s Josh and Sarah and Yelp Pittsburgh’sRachel are here to let you know all the places you can wear your cargo shorts this weekend.

Science of Beer Night is at the Carnegie Science Center this Friday and it is a great place to wear those cargo shorts. Learn some “scientifical” information about beer. Hypothesis for you: if you drink a lot of beer, you will not feel well in the morning. Let us know your results.  Enjoy handcrafted drinks from Church Brew Works, Block House Brewing Co., and more.

FEASTivalis in McKees Rocks this Saturday. Explore McKees Rocks downtown business district, hear some great bands and taste the yummy eats from numerous food trucks. It’s free, but if you want to go “baller style,” get the VIP tickets.  That being said, we believe cargo shorts would be acceptable, even with the VIP ticket.

It's going to be hot this weekend so stay cool in your cargo shorts with ice cream! The Dream On Festival is this weekend in Market Square. Check out music, performances and 20 flavors of Dream Cream Ice Cream at this exciting event. 

Steel City Pizzafest- Game of Doughs is at East End Brewing Company this Saturday.  Tons of different pizza joints from the 'burgh will be there, so sampling is a must. A pizza eating contest is happening at 4pm. It is free to the public and you pay per slice, so your potential for maximum pizza intake is high. Plus it is Game of Thrones themed, so they obviously know the way to our heart. Just make sure to not spill any pizza sauce on your clothes and cargo shorts! We don't want it looking like the Red Wedding by accident...

You Gotta Regatta! The EQT Three Rivers Regatta is this weekend. The Gin Blossoms and Better Than Ezra are performing so it is time to break out your cargo shorts, chain wallets and neon windbreakers. And yes, there will be dragon boats. Never seen a dragon boat race? You are missing out. But luckily you can catch one here.

Hey, you. Be confident in your cargo shorts. Go own the weekend.
