Eat This, Drink That. Come Early...Stay Late @ GA/GI

Ok...we admit that the trek between some of the GA/GI and Unblurred event clusters can be a healthy trek for some. You can start in the middle in the 5100 block; the far side toward Children's hospital around 4900 or at the beginning around 5400. And we always suggest you consider starting at GA/GI Headquarters--the Pittsburgh Glass Center (5472 Penn) which has a time span that begins at regular business hours ( 11 am) and expands until around 9 pm. (the majority of events are in the evening between 6 and 10 pm) At the PGC, you can pick up a flyer and find more info on the event. Below we also offer places to stop, rest and rethink your GA/GI strategy as you take it all in. Also, consult our "Schedule of Events" tab on this blog for updated info.
