Weekly News Highlights
Americans have been using the term ‘freebie’ since the 1920s. Well this week, Pittsburgh is Freebie City! The Three Rivers Arts Festival is coming to a close, but it was a helluva 10-day stretch with all of the free concerts and art activities. Be sure to hit up the Pittsburgh Jazz Festival next weekend too for some more free, live listening.
Speaking of free, we’re giving away so many tickets this week, you’d think we’ve gone crazy or been corrupted! Like hip-hop? Enter to win tickets to Asher Roth at Altar Bar on Tuesday or Grandmaster Flash at Round Corner Cantina‘s Gold Series on Friday. We’ve got Ziggy Marley tickets up for grabs if that’s more your scene and The Music of Queen by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for all you rockers in the ‘Burgh.
If you’re a little more artsy and want to mingle with the ‘Pittsburgh Rich,’ enter to win tickets to The Mattress Factory‘s Urban Garden Party on Friday night. This year’s theme is the Wild West. They’ll have a mechanical bull and grub from 40+ of Pittsburgh’s dandiest restaurants and caterers–gonna be a hog killin’ time! Need a ride to any of these events? Take a Lyft on us for free using our code: NAKYOUOUT.
Stayin’ in? You probably caught the Full Honey Moon this weekend that even your grandmother doesn’t remember witnessing! Or if gaming if more your thing, try using this map to navigate through Pittsburgh’s subway system. There won’t be any levels that will unlock the East End though, you may have to wait years for them to come out with that one…
