Apologies for the last minute posting on this event for CubaOne, which is tonight, Monday, December 12, 2016. Even if you can’t make it to this event, I wanted to share some information with Pittsburgh readers about the CubaOne Foundation.

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is the annual Dirty Dozen Bike Race. What started as a group of friends pedaling up the steepest hills in Pittsburgh, now has several hundred riders.

Twelve years ago, I had never voted, but a few month after attending a candidate MeetUp at the Church Brew Works, I quit my job and went to work full time on the presidential campaign.
Today, September 27 is National Voter Registration Day, a perfect excuse for a post on registering to vote.
October 11, 2016 is the LAST DAY TO REGISTER TO VOTE before the… Read the rest
Last week I shared the Next Pittsburgh article about the house in Stanton Heights that was designed by a Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice and our Facebook post about the affordability of this house was quite popular.

Why Swissvale is Worth A Second Look
Swissvale is one of those places that you might not know much about, but you have probably drive through before, or if you are a parkway commuter, everyday.
