Pick your passion, Pittsburgh…

This Saturday, July 27th there are three extra awesome events happening across the Burgh.  Chose your favorite, or make one crazy day of all three!

DOWNTOWN

What: One Whirl Yoga Fest & Healthy Lifestyle Expo
Where: Point State Park in the Golden Triangle

When: 6AM – 6PM

How Much: $35 for an all day yoga pass, or just stop by to check out the vendors, talk to the experts, and more!

Why? If you’re into fitness, it’s gonna be great.  If you’re into food trucks, it’s also gonna be great.  If you’re into both, that’s some extra great.

EAST END

What: Jam On Walnut
Where: Walnut Street in Shadyside

When: 6PM-11PM (the show starts at 7:30)

How Much: $5

Why? This event only happens three times a summer, and this time two Pittsburgh bands, Donora andRadio Tokyo, are coming together at this outdoor concert that brings thousands of people to Shadyside!  That proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation just makes the night even sweeter.

EVEN EAST-ER

What: Steel City Con
Where: Monroeville Convention Center in Monroeville

When: 10AM-8PM

How Much: $15 for a day passWhy?  Okay, okay.  So the Comicon is actually a three day event, starting Friday and ending Sunday.  Why should you go on Saturday?  I have no idea.  But you should definitely go at least one of the days it runs.  Winston will be there!  From Ghostbusters!!!

                   YB Event: David Cassidy Plays At South Park

Let’s all take a moment to pretend that we’re teenyboppers of the 1970s.  You’re vegging out in your conversation pit, playing Uno with your friends Michael and Jennifer (who is such a spaz) and trying not to get fondue on your bitch’n new bell-bottoms.  Everything’s chill until suddenly, your favorite song comes on the radio and you FREAK OUT.  It’s “I Think I Love You” by that stone fox, David Cassidy.  You would do anything to see him live.  Anything.

Well now’s your chance.

Flash forward to 2013.  This Friday, July 12th at 7:30PM, David Cassidy will be performing a FREE concert in the South Park Amphitheater.  The teen idol of The Partridge Family, David Cassidy was so famous in the early 1970s that his concerts became synonymous with teen hysteria.  And can you blame them?

Get the full details of his Pittsburgh show on the Allegheny County Parks website here, and also check out David’s website here to see what he’s been up to since 1974.  Or, better yet, see for yourself this Friday!

Fun Fact:

David Cassidy’s stepmother is renowned 50s and 60s singer and actress Shirley Jones (who played David’s onscreen mother in The Partridge Family), a native of Charleroi in Pittsburgh’s Mon Valley!  Shirley even won the “Miss Pittsburgh” Pageant of 1952!

                                         YB EVENT: Beats-N-Eats
Do your lunch breaks get dull?  Or are you on vacation, and looking for ways to fill your summer days?  Whatever your situation, if you’re free this Wednesday, July 10th from noon to 2PM, you gotta head to the Quiet Storm for Beats-N-Eats.  Presented by the Kelly Strayhorn Theater, Beats-N-Eats is a citywide lunch break dance party.
If that isn’t enough to hook you, consider the Quiet Storm itself.  Located at 5430 Penn Avenue at the border of Garfield and Bloomfield, Quiet Storm is a totally rad vegetarian and vegan café, with gluten free options as well!
There’s no fee for the DJ and dancing, so there’s no excuse for you not to be there.
