Weekly News Roundup
Another week, and another round of listicles featuring the 412! We also saw a new trend in transportation emerge this week, with a couple of in demand ride apps coming to town, plus some local friends could use our help. Catch up with this week in the Burgh below.
Well Pittsburgh made it on a list this week we’re not so proud of….apparently not all PGH worker bees are happy at their jobs, but on a brighter note we DID get voted the 2nd Most Beautiful Place in America….so cheer up!
Some local friends could use your help this week. DJ Buscrates had an accident on his bike, he could use your support to pay for the medical expenses. If you ever got down to his jams, now’s the time to show your support. Also local musician Nathan Zoob could use some help to produce his first EP of original music. And finally Gallery 4 has a Call for Artists out for their 2014 Salon Show, all mediums are welcome!
Thanks to the new trend in transportation apps, Pittsburghers can finally have some reliable options to get around town (don’t drink and drive folks!). First Lyft exploded on the scene with their quirky pink mustaches, quickly followed by Uber. We’re excited to announce we have a special Lyft promo code for $20 of Lyft credits! Just download the app at get.lyft.com. Enter your payment info, then enter the code: NAKYOUOUT. Now you can request your ride and a Lyft will arrive in minutes!
Beer me! True Pittsburghers love their brewskis, so get your tickets to the Beers of the Burgh Festival, they just went on sale!
