more things to do tonight

Traditional fuel. It’s…

Bad for the environment.

A foreign-relations headache.

And getting much more expensive.

But what are our other options?

Join us for Green Drinks this Friday at Phipps Conservatory from 5:30 to 7:30pm for a discussion on the great advances in bio-diesel and other local alternative fuel options with our hosts Steel City Bio-fuels, United Oil Company, and the PA Dept. of Environmental Protection.

And after our discussion, Steel City Bio-fuels will give a live demonstration on how they make bio-fuel!

Put it in your calendar and count on it: Green Drinks is happening every month.

Join us for a Goodbye Party for the Mon-Fayette Toll Road, in the heart of Braddock, through which the road would heartlessly raze. We’ll gather at Mayor John Fetterman’s front yard (or the First Presbyterian Church next door near the corner of Braddock & Library, should it rain) for a potluck and lively conversation (8:00 p.m.) That means you should bring some food or snacks to share, and bring your own drinks. We’ll have the basics. There will be an outdoor pottery firing going on at the Carnegie Library (if you want to, for example, burn some Turnpike Commission literature).

When night falls, we’ll process to the Ohringer Building (640 Braddock Ave.) for the unveiling of an art installation (writ large: NOMFX) and a major announcement about the Toll Road you won’t want to miss! We may even pass the hat a little: we need to start the Toll Road Retirement Fund.

Let’s rally. Let’s party. Let’s kiss the Toll Road goodbye!

This FRIDAY July 21, 8:00 pm
