7 Secrets to enjoy the Pittsburgh Arts Festival.

The best way I’ve found to visit the Pittsburgh Arts Festival for its final days this weekend is to park your car at the Theater square parking garage all day for$3! You are then a short elevator ride from most of the best Artist purveyors at the scene. In the courtyard on 7th is Anthony all the way in the rear. He has the most well crafted back packs, purses and hand sewn leather wear that I’ve ever seen. He and his father create these practical masterpieces to be both functional and fashionable. I had to purchase the versatile brown patchwork backpack with zippers and hidden pockets galore to safely transport my laptop and any other necessities. Next stop is right next door at 7th and Penn for refreshments at Proper Brick Oven and Tap Room! There I had a delicious fresh brick Oven margarita pizza, a cold craft beer and a beautiful house salad with fresh pear slices, candied walnuts, and feta over baby bibb lettuce with a lemon vinaigrette. Yum! Now it is across the corner to the parking lot craft display across from the Benedum Theater to Thomas’s Blown glass and spun art creations! There is a reason that WGKglass is the featured artist of the whole show. These glass ornaments are Amazing! He has created colorful Dragons and awesome spiders, hummingbirds and flowers as jewelry and décor which treats the eyes with delight. The more you look, the more you see… if you can get close enough to drink it all in! The people are pleasant and courteous. I snatched up a Loch Ness sea dragon and a delicate black hand skeleton for our daughter! Everything was packed up perfectly. Too cool! Now you can easily return your treasures to your car for safe keeping and stroll down Penn Avenue to enjoy the free concerts at Point Park. There is lots more to see there and along Fort Duquesne Blvd. as you return to your car after a great day of soaking up ideas! ☆

You said What to Who?

I always get a bit discombobulated after a Monday holiday.
I’ve got a bunch more discombobulation coming this year
since 3 more national holidays will be observed on a Monday in 2021.

You may be surmising (correctly) that it doesn’t take much to get me discombobulated. I pretty sure my wife would agree.

Fortunately, the forward thinking people in Minnesota have provided
a re-combobulation area. You may remember that I shared this in a previous email. I just love the concept.

I’ll probably come home one day to find a re-combobulation area designated in my home. In the corner, of course.

I’ll share the picture if it ever happens. I hope a cap is not also required when in this area of my home.

At the http://www.StarLoftsPgh.com, our residents are always combobulated!

Good Day! Charlie
