Installment 1 – The decision is made.
Correct me if I’m wrong here but as I remember it, all Judy Garland had to do to get back to Kansas was the following:
1. look thoroughly annoyed from having wasted so much time and learned nothing new
2. click heels of the appropriate, sparkly footwear three times
3. repeat catchy mantra
And then she woke up and everything was back to normal. Is it me? Does this stuff only work for natives of Kansas or orphans who inexplicably live with an Aunt and Uncle? Is it only for those who have new friends with missing vital organs or questionable character traits?
What about a West End Girl who just wants to come back to her hometown of Pittsburgh?
It is Shadyside Arts Festival Time – this event has gone through some changes over the past few years – I think it is now called the Arts Festival on Walnut St. Walnut Street in Shadyside will be closed to traffic and the street will be filled with artists from around the country. Saturday 10 – 9, Sunday 10-5. More info at Artsfestival.com

Well I am glad to see that this is showing when they are usually showing horror movies because I still think that Willy Wonka is one of the scariest movies ever – the poor kids just want to eat some candy and then they vanish.
But if you love this movie then you can head to The Oaks Theater in Oakmont – Friday at 10pm or Saturday at Midnight. They will be showing the original 1971 print.

UPDATE 9/7/09 – Thanks to the folks at DeepLocal – we now have a nifty little map with an easy to use submission form! Click here to see the map and to submit your favorite Steelers Bar!
Click on the map. Click edit. Add your favorites and include as much info as you can – bar locations, websites, photos and a link to your website or blog if you have one!
So it turns out these google maps aren’t the best tool for collaboration. We are working on a better solution for that. I have tried to set up a wiki, but I think the easiest way to capture all of this info is by google document. Thanks for being patient while we work thought some technological hiccups. The best solution seems to be a Google spreadsheet that anyone can edit – just fill out the form below or visit the spreadsheet and add your favorite Steelers Bar or Fan Club – feel free to add the same bar more than once! It will be great to see which ones get the most suggestions.
