Cats With Hats- And Other Thoughts From Greta: Social Club October 14


Greta, Josh’s daughter, joined WESA’s Sarah and Yelp Pittsburgh’s Rachel for Social Club. Hear about the fun events going on in Pittsburgh this weekend and learn some words of wisdom from Greta.  

“I want to go to the science thing.”

We do too, Greta. The “science thing” she is referring to is Maker Faire Pittsburgh, at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh this Saturday and Sunday. This isn’t a crafters’ fair. It’s a different kind of maker, more in the sense of technology. It is equal parts science fair, county fair and DIY confluence. Check out demos, performances and activities for all ages!

“We do NOT like cats with hats.”

Well, you won’t see any of those but we can’t guarantee that you won’t see some pretty strange things at 21+ Night at the Carnegie Science Center this Friday. The theme is Rocky Horror so get ready to do the Time Warp again. Enjoy the live science show, Frankenscience, music and cash bars!

“I want to get a cabin.”

That would be nice, Greta, but what about a pumpkin instead? GUTS is this Saturday at Penn Brewery. No, this is not the Nickelodeon show brought back to life. It is a friendly pumpkin carving competition. Watch  live pumpkin carving action, take pictures in their photo booth and buy some items from the merch table. You can also vote for your favorite pumpkin.

Happy weekend everyone!
