With so much happening from Monday through Saturday, Sundays in Pittsburgh can seem a little dry in the summer heat. In spite of this, we believe that Sundays can be made for more than rest, so we’ve compiled a list of weekly Sunday night events to get you out and about in town.

Pittsburgh Improv Comedy

Get a laugh in at Pittsburgh Improv Comedy every Sunday at 7PM. Featuring a different comedy act each week, you’re sure to not hear the same joke twice. Check out their calendar for a list of performers.

Arsenal Bowling Lanes

With an $8 all-you-can-bowl sesh from 9PM-midnight offered on Sundays, getting strikes will be the only thing on the agenda at Arsenal Lanes. The sounds of pins falling and unfortunate gutter balls are joined by the DJ skills of WRCT’s, The Mockster. Make sure to bring your ID for this 21+ event.


Stop out at Spirit for their weekly Sunday Fun Day affairs as they host an array of fun-for-all activities, including horseshoes from 5-7PM and Bingo Bango with Dave Kaul from 7-9PM; then cool down and stick around to catch up on your weekly dose of Game of Thrones from 9-10PM. And since you’ll surely work up an appetite after all the daytime activities, you and your crew can grab a large pizza and a bucket of baby Buds for just 15 bucks.


Catch dinner and a show at Brillobox. Starting at 6PM, grab a different vegetarian meal from their Starving Artists Vegetarian Supper every Sunday. If you’re hungry, make sure to arrive early; the special only runs until the food is all gone… but you can always come through later on for one of their many featured live performances!

Lava Lounge

Dust off your vocal chords at Lava Lounge for some weekly Sunday night karaoke from 10PM-2AM. In need of a little liquid courage to bust out your own version of “Don’t Stop Believing?” Lava Lounge offers dollar-off cocktail menu items from 4PM ’til midnight.

Salsa Pittsburgh

Mambo and guapea your way into Salsa Pittsburgh’s Sunday Salsa Socials. Hosted at Absolute Ballroom every week during June, July and August, these weekly classes might make you feel like a Latin dance champ. Sunday classes begin at 7PM for advanced dancers, and at 7:30PM for beginners and intermediate-level dancers, with open Salsa Dance Parties beginning at 8:30PM. Make sure to also check out their free outdoor summer dance as Salsa Pittsburgh collabs with three other dance organizations on June 21 at Avonworth Community Park.

Paint Monkey: Pittsburgh Paint Classes and Parties

For three years, Paint Monkey has reached out to the inner child in its customers by encouraging painting outside the lines. Grab a friend and some wine (they’re BYOB-friendly) and get ready to become Picasso for the night. These all-supplies-included sessions are offered for two or three hours and class times vary, so check out their calendar to register.

Bricolage Adventurous Theatre

Bricolage and its 2015 season present a variety of theatrical mediums and genres, all designed to get the audience involved and thinking. Their spring and summer productions of “Saints Tour” by Molly Rice takes Shakespeare’s “all the world’s a stage” literally and allows audience members to envelop themselves in the neighborhood of Braddock via a bus and walking tour. Shows start at 7:30PM on Sundays.

Why waste one night not exploring the ‘Burgh? Get out this Sunday and add one of these experiences to your weekend To-Do List.
