Image via WikipediaOne of my favorite fun facts about living in Pittsburgh is that homewood cemetery is the location that Night of the Living Dead was filled. Well, after learning about this event – I realized that I have been misinformed. Regardless, Pittsburgh is still the birth place of this horror film and it is something to be celebrated, even if the scenes were filmed in Evans City.

2017 UPDATE: The Coolspring corn maze is open until November 5, 2017. Address and hours are available on the Coolspring Corn Maze website here.

I think that the only Ben & Jerry’s in Pittsburgh is in Sq. Hill on Forbes Ave.
I guess it has been a while since I have been in Ben & Jerry’s (probably because I am often seeking the ice cream at Oh Yeah!) – I didn’t know Steven Colbert had his own flavor – Americone Dream.

Happy Harry the Saturday Mechanic will be on hand to help deconstruct the car and see what’s inside. While I hate to see a grand wagoner go to waste, I think this sounds like a pretty neat exhibit for kids and adults.
Sat, Nov 1, 10a.m. until 5p.m.
