Most Monday nights, Wigle Whiskey hosts Batnam Nights, where they open their tasting room to a different Pittsburgh area non-profit and donate a portion of the proceeds to the organization. This Monday night the Batnam night will be a Valentine’s trivia night to benefit a local historic preservation effort.
On Monday, February 13, 2017, Friends of Albright is hosting a special trivia night at Wigle Whiskey in the strip district – Big Heart Trivia. Friends of Albright, which I helped to establish in 2014, is a group of community members that has been working to preserve and re-purpose the Albright Church Building in Bloomfield into a community space.
The trivia night is named after a note card found in the church archives, this evening will offer a chance to learn more about the effort to save the Albright United Methodist church and a chance to meet some of the folks who are involved with Pittsburgh historic preservation.
