tl;dr: All Pittsburgh lovers are invited to come to an ice skating party on Sunday, March 3, 2019.
Hello IheartPGH readers,
As you may have noticed over the past few months, there have not been many updates here on the ye olde IheartPGH blog. If you follow @IheartPGH on Twitter, you have likely seen some retweets from @VeryLocalPGH.
I am excited to introduce you to a new Pittsburgh website that I have been working on for the past few months. Say hello to Very Local Pittsburgh. The Very Local team, along with the help of a crew of writers and video journalists, is dedicated to telling the most Pittsburgh stories.
You are cordially invited to the very first Very Local Pittsburgh event this Sunday, March 3, 2019. Please come skate into spring with us at the $8 Skate Date.
The Very Local team wanted to put together a very Pittsburgh event for our debut. So we are taking over the MassMutual Pittsburgh Rink at PPG, and we have invited some of our favorite Pittsburgh friends to join us. DJMB who you may know from the In Bed By Ten Dance parties will be providing music, and Zeke Coffee will be serving hot chocolate with marshmallows. Tickets are just $8 for adults and $5 for kids, and all of the ticket sales will be donated to 412 Food Rescue.
