Before we head into the weekend:
1. There a post you may not have read yet over at my mag blog, this one about how “suspicious packages” keep getting detonated here in Pittsburgh and why it makes me sad.
Also, if you leave your backpack on the bus, I just want you to know that I’ll give it to the driver instead of calling in the robots that like to blow shit up.
2. I’ll be guest-bartending at Rock the Streets tomorrow at 7:00 p.m. at the Shadow Lounge, benefiting the region’s homeless:
Come and support Pittsburgh’s less fortunate through programs supported by Community Human Services. Saturday the 12th ‘Burgh VIP’s will gather at the Shadow Lounge for a Jazz and Tapas hour sponsored by Tusca and Rivertowne North Shore. A donation of $30.00 (all proceeds benefit CHS) gets you admission into the Jazz and Tapas VIP Hour with guest bartenders: Bill Peduto of Pittsburgh City Council, Sean McDowell of WDVE, Dr. Kristin Jones of UPMC and announcing Virginia Montanez also known as PittGirl.
After that, general admission is only $15.
If you’re coming to the event, please stop and say hi. Especially because Bill Peduto might be having a few choice words with me seeing as he and Doug Shields are good friends. EEK! I think I have officially pissed off all of city council by now.
I’ve never met Sean McDowell before. Is he a big guy? Maybe I can hide behind him.
