Just when you think you have seen every possible fundraising idea ever, someone comes up with a new one. Some crazy, but kind souls in Pittsburgh are going to jump into the mon (Monongahela river) to raise money for the Circle C Youth and Family Services which is a great organization that has been supporting kids and families for over 40 years.
The Post-Gazette has a video report of last year's Drowned Hogs Day Swim here. It is pretty funny to see, more
I was getting a little worried that Pittsburgh had more Groundhog Day celebrations than Mardi Gras celebrations. Penn Brewery to the rescue. I was lucky enough to visit a fellow Pittsburgher in New Orleans for Mardi Gras a few years ago, before the flooding. It was definitely the biggest party I have ever attended. Mardi Gras, like Groundhog Day are holidays that need to be celebrated. So head on over to Penn Brewery for bead, beer and good music. more
I loved the MadMex Groundhog day specials last year (click here to read last years post) and luckily those crazy kids at Mad Mex are back to help you celebrate with Punxsutawney Phil.
If the groundhog sees his shadow: half off draft beers all day
If the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow: $6 big margarita’s all day
