Once again I am out of town for the festivities (I am visiting a Pittsburgh friend in Lawton, Oklahoma) – but a dear friend (who is Pittsburghs biggest non-Italian supporter of Italian events) kindly reminded me that Sunday is the annual Feast of St. Anthony Festival.

The festival takes place at 21st and Smallman Streets. Here is the line up for Sunday
The Festival runs from Noon – 8 PM.

Say hello to Iva! She comes to IheartPGH with photo skills and a super camera! We’re excited for more of her posts that will have way better photos than the ones from my sad little Blackberry camera. Check out her awesome photos from the East End Brewing Keg ride last weekend

Well, if you found that as disturbing as I did, you might be looking for a few good local sources to buy your honey from now on. Here are a few ideas, and there are loads of other farms and resources out there.
Buy local honey from Steffes Wood Apiary (Aliquippa, PA) right now at Gallery on 43rd Street in Lawrenceville. Why not stop down from December 1 through 4th when you can also enjoy… Read the rest
We are happy to support the Community Human Services (CHS) holiday gift card drive again this year. This is a great and easy way to support CHS and help them get holiday gifts to some Pittsburghers who might not have much of a holiday.

CHS has been working in Oakland and neighborhoods around Pittsburgh since the early 1970s. CHS offers… Read the rest
