Don't Look For Anyone Stomping Grapes At Pittsburgh Winery: Social Club, March 10

Get out your best green garb for the parade and St. Patrick’s Day parties this weekend. But before guzzling down some green beers, Social Club’s Sarah Kovash, Josh Raulerson and Rachel Carlson of Yelp Pittsburgh check out Pittsburgh Winery in the Strip District.

Syma Hajian joins us to talk about what’s new at the winery – and how they don’t actually make wine by stomping grapes with their feet (yes, she’s heard that “I Love Lucy” joke already).

It’s actually a popular music venue and Hajian says if you want to join a party that’s all about wine, check out their Chilean harvest Grape Stomp at the end of April – exact date TBD.

Until then, you can spend the weekend taking in all of the St. Paddy’s festivities, starting with the parade downtown Saturday morning. You can also join a bar crawl on the South Side or check out Market Square’s “Irish Fair in the Square.”
