Opening: Testosterone

Who doesn’t want to delve deeper into the subject of testosterone, masculinity or desire?! Especially when artists from Italy, Great Britain and the US are leading the way…

Steel of the Week – A Year of Movies At Row House Cinema

row-house-cinemaThanks to the IheartPGH Twitter followers for the heads up on this Indiegogo campaign.   It has been awhile since we’ve posted about a crowdfunding project in Pittsburgh (which isn’t 100% true – thanks to the readers of IheartPGH who helped to crowdfund my seat on the Millennial Trains Project).

Sometimes – you just need to go to the movies and sadly there aren’t that many movie theaters left in the city if Pittsburgh.  I believe the Manor theater in Sq. Hill is the only theater left in the city limits.

Thankfully, some Pittsburghers are looking to bring a movie theater to Lawrenceville.  The folks behind Row House Cinema have put together a lovely video to tell you about this project.  And they have put together some incredible thank you gifts – while the engraved seats have already sold out – you can still pick up some movie passes or even free movies for a year.

I’m hopeful that I can talk these guys into showing more Pittsburgh related movies – it would be great to be able to see The Fish That Saved Pittsburgh or Flashdance on the big screen.

Friday – The Train Stops in Pittsburgh – Happy Hour at East End Brewing

As most of you know I’ve been on a cross country train trip with the Millennial Trains Project.  I am one of 24 passengers who are working on a project as the train has traveled across the country from San Francisco to Washington, DC.

I’m writing this post from the train – we just passed through Toledo, Ohio.  Next stop – Pittsburgh!  The train pulls into the station around 5am.  I’ve already set my alarm, I want to see what the city looks like from a train.

The Millennial Trains Project group will be in Pittsburgh all day and I hope you will get a chance to say hello and meet my fellow passengers.

As we left Chicago today – I realized that this trip is coming close to an end in just 2 days.  But, I am excited to be stopping in Pittsburgh and have the chance to show the passengers on this train the steel city.  I hope you will help me welcome everyone to the ‘burgh on Friday.

10am-4pm – Participant Projects at TechShop and around the city.

MTP passengers, staff and mentors will be at TechShop, located in Bakery Square, all day (I’ll be there 10-11 and in and out in the afternoon).  Stop by and check out TechShop and say hello.

6pm-7pm – MTP Happy Hour at East End Brewing

Thanks to Scott at East End Brewing for hosting.  All are welcome to stop by and check out the brewery and meet my fellow passengers.  This is a short event because we have to get back on the train for some of the evening sessions.
