Joke of the day!

Three drunks hailed a taxi. The taxi driver seeing that they were so wasted when they got in, he just switched on the engine and switched it off, and said we are here. The 1st guy gave him money, 2nd guy said thanks, but the 3rd guy slapped him. The taxi driver was stunned because he was hoping that none of them would have realized the car didn’t move an inch. So what was that for, he asked. Control your speed next time, you almost killed us.

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust looks forward to ringing in 2022 with a bang – and a band — with the Byron Nash Trio headlining the Highmark First Night.

“The midnight show with Byron Nash on the Highmark main stage is going to be such a fun way to ring in 2022,” said Director of Festival Management Sarah Aziz.

The Byron Nash Trio will play from 10:45p to midnight. Before that you’ll be able to hear performances from other artists while checking out a parade, ice sculptures, theatre performances, acrobatics, and many other displays including an art installation from Australia featuring massive rabbits.

“In this Trust Oasis space are going to be the three baby rabbits and they stand about 12 feet tall, so they’re pretty little,” said Aziz. “Their momma rabbit’s going to be right over on 8th St. right on the other side of these buildings in that parking lot and she stands about 50 feet tall.”

The night will cap off with a fireworks grand finale at midnight.

“It’s just such a fun way to get out and enjoy the city, remember what it’s like to be out amongst people in a safe, fun, festive environment,” said Aziz.

The event is free and open to the public, but some portions of the event do require tickets which you will need to register for in advance.
