Art All Night Timeline
While there were lots of interesting memories stuck on to the board, this post-it note jumped out at me. In case you can’t read the post-it…
Green Note: “Art is everything my parents told me not to do”
Grey Note: “SAME HERE! It’s a damned shame I listened to them. I’m 56 now and finally I’m enjoying art + LIFE”

Okay, so I am not the biggest elton John fan, but I wasn’t sure how else to title this post to convey the excitement about Saturday Night. Here are 6 great events happening in Pittsburgh. All worthy of your attention. From art to fishing to cake there is something for everyone this Saturday.
I can’t believe that we at IheartPGH have not posted on this important annual event before. Thanks to the folks at Venture Outdoors for reminding me that this weekend is , which is a sister event to Art All Night. Join some fishermen and fisherwomen for an all night Carp All Night carp fishing extravaganza.
The umpteenth annual Carp All Night takes place this Saturday, April 25, in
Lawrenceville, beneath the 40th Street Bridge. Fishing equipment will be on hand for those in need of it, as well as actual expertise in how to catch something. And we do actually catch some pretty impressive fish, including a very nice 3 lb. smallmouth bass.
No kidding. Plus lots of catfish and even the occasional carp. Don’t forget your PA Fishing License, you can get that on-line these days:
Stop down any time, Dusk to Dawn.
