WARNING: If you are a vegetarian you might want to skip this post – it is 100% about bacon.

IheartPGH owes alot to bacon, we didn’t really think much of this blog and only a handful of our friends read this little website – and four years ago that was a pretty small group of people that were willing to read a blog. But then we posted about Bacon Night (TGIB – Bacon Night 11/18/2005)at the Harris Grill and somehow the Post-Gazette found that post and mentioned this humble little blog in the paper and things started to change.

So I have noticed that bacon is kind of a big deal for many of our readers so here is an event for the bacon lovers.

The Blue Ribbon Bacon Tour, Saturday, September 26, 11:00 – 4:00, Harris Grill – $30 gets you 5 hours of bacon goodness. You can even purchase a signed copy of the book Bacon: A Love Story: A Salty Survey of Everybody’s Favorite Meat. A must read for the bacon enthusiast. [Read more…]

Cuts for Casa – Tue, September 15, 2009

Sorry for the last minute post on this event – but I wanted to highlight this for two reasons – 1. CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) is an important organization that needs more volunteers and 2. The Barbers Inn, which I have passed many times – looks like a super cool place – a fancy barber shop complete with couches, tv’s and even a bar.  So check out this  FREE event – learn more about CASA and the Barber’s Inn!  More info here and on Facebook.

Hosted by the Court appointed Special Advocate program of Allegheny County, along with the Barber’s Inn — Shadyside, Cuts for CASA is a free networking event to spread community awareness about CASA’s volunteer program and the need for male involvement. CASA’s need for male participation is dire. Out of 175 volunteers who are trained advocates, only 9% are male. Since nearly half of the children CASA serves are young men, a male volunteer can serve as a vital role model for this vulnerable population.

Are you interested in attending? Cuts for CASA will be held on Tuesday, September 15, 2009, from 6-8pm at the Barber’s Inn, a male grooming lounge, located at 5744 Baum Blvd., Pittsburgh PA, 15206. Discounted hair cuts and shaves, free food and beverages, door prizes and giveaways will be provided to attendees. This event is FREE but you must R.S.V.P. Contact Daren Ellerbee at 412-594-3606 or click here to reserve your spot today!

Fangtastic Fiesta – Mad Mex Halloween Party!!!

One of the more frequent questions asked here at IheartPGH is what should I do for Halloween/New Years/Fourth of July? So I thought I would get a head start on an answer for that with this Halloween Party from Mad Mex which is one of the best best BEST places to eat in Pittsburgh. I am loyal to the Oakland Mad Mex but given this space locations I understand why the party is moving to the Cranberry and Robinson locations – each location will be in party mode with excellent music TheMockster (from WRCT) will be lurking at Cranberry and you will find DJ Swank Cat haunting Robinson), margaritas and more.

How are you planning on celebrating Halloween this year?
