Light up night means Downtown Pittsburgh will be hustling and bustling and basically looking like a city after 5pm.
If the crowds aren’t for you – never fear – there are a bunch of light up night festivities happening in neighborhood business districts all around town. You can get all of the Christmas-light filled fun with out the chaos.

For the past year – the East End Book Exchange operated out of the Pittsburgh Public Market – open each Friday, Saturday and Sunday with an extensive collection of books for their little space.
While the Pittsburgh Public Market may be struggling as a market – it has been the perfect incubator for Pittsburghers to test out their businesses before moving to a storefront. The Crested Duck Charcuterie started out in the public market before opening a store front in Beechview and they just announced they are expanding again!
East End Book Exchange
This Saturday the East End Book Exchange opens the doors to their new permanent location on Liberty Ave in Bloomfield. Just down the street from The Big Idea Bookshop – Bloomfield is the perfect home for a used book shop. There are also at least 3 other awesome resale shops on Liberty Ave – including the newly opened Clothes Minded. Making Liberty Avenue a perfect place for vintage shopping and browsing unique finds in clothing, books and more.

Everyone is invited to their grand opening celebration on Friday night – get a sneak peek and pick up your favorite books before the shop officially opens on Saturday.
One of the questions we are asked frequently is how do I meet new people in Pittsburgh? If you are looking to network with other women in business – then Propelle is the organization for you. Propelle was founded a year ago and they have been hosting happy hours, workshops on social media and other networking event every month.
