3000 OYSTERS FLEW INTO PITTSBURGH LAST NIGHT; what does that have in common with hot dogs, hiking and doo woop?


These are just some of the things going on this weekend in Pittsburgh…

This Saturday is the fifth annual Oysterfest held in Homestead under the bridge. Jerry Miller, the owner of the Blue Dust, began this annual event after a conversation and a few beers (well maybe more than a few) with the team from Rogue beer out of Oregon. The event is rain or shine 1pm-10pm under the Homestead Grays Bridge. The three bands that will be playing throughout the day are House of Soul, The Cheerly Men and INCO FIDO.  Activities will include Axe Throwing and, of course, enjoying adult beverages. These adult beverages include craft cocktails provided by Wigle Whiskey. In addition to oysters, there will be six food trucks. OysterFest is cash only and admission is free. Tickets for beers, oysters, and cocktails are $6 each. This is dog-friendly!

After you enjoy your oysters, cross the river because Saturday night in Braddock, the doo wop band, Wee Jams, will be playing at Portogallo Peppers N’At. This local spot know for big plates of food, bocce and live music has played a big part in the revitalization of this steel town on the river. The band starts at 8pm.
