'Go Shorty, It's Your Birthday': Social Club September 30


Happy Birthday Josh! It’s Josh’s birthday weekend and Social Club is ready to celebrate. WESA’s Sarah and Yelp Pittsburgh’s Rachel have put together a weekend filled with beer, brunch and tacos for Josh. Care to join?

First things first are presents for Josh. Do some shopping at Oakland Forever Night Market, this Friday in Oakland. There will be tons of vendors selling clothing, jewelry, gifts and more. Plus six live bands will perform on Forbes Avenue. What better way to start your birthday weekend?

With gift in hand, it is time to go get Josh some drinks. Josh thinks Sam Adams is a cool enough beer so a perfect place to take him is the Samuel Adams Rocktoberfest, this Friday at Stage AE.  Lots of samples and activities will be on hand, including a stein-hoisting contest, where the winner will receive a free trip to Boston! Not too shabby!

After all that drinking, you are going to need a hearty breakfast to soak it all up. Luckily for Josh and the birthday gang, Brunch Social is at Spirit this Saturday. Brunch Social is a new food event that features many of Pittsburgh favorite brunch spots.  This weekend is the “Disco Edition,” so you need to get groovy while enjoying your brunch (shouldn’t be a problem for our Social Clubbers).  Head on over to Spirit and enjoy 70's tunes while you brunch and drink signature cocktails.

Because it’s Josh’s birthday, it is completely acceptable to go to two beer fests in one weekend*. So head on over to Oktoberfest at the Biergarten this Sunday, starting at 2pm. Enjoy traditional German food, beer steins and live music.

In place of breakfast food, might we suggest tacos to soak up Oktoberfest? Taco Fest 2016 is this Sunday at Hop Farm Brewing Co. Twenty five different vendors will be there and taco themed items (we are intrigued) are available for purchase. Let us repeat that. TWENTY FIVE DIFFERENT TACO VENDORS! Happy Birthday Josh, this event seems like a birthday wish come true.

Josh, we hope you have a wonderful birthday. To our Social Clubbers, even if it isn’t your birthday weekend as well, we hope you have a good one. The Liberty Bridge is open again so there isn’t any excuse to not head out, so go have an amazing weekend!

XOXO Social Club
