I would like to take a break from our regularly scheduled programming to plug one of my favorite events of the year:
On Saturday, Chris and I went to this annual fundraiser for which we (and many others) fight to get tickets every year.
In short, it's a beer and food tasting frenzy.
A few hours of excellence.
A heck of a lot of fun.
two awesome organizations here in Pittsburgh that encourage reuse, specifically through architectural salvage.
If you live in the Pittsburgh area, Construction Junction is definitely worth a trip.
We have gotten many many many salvaged pieces there as we've completed various projects around the house (doors, tile, paint, etc etc etc),
|My beer caddy.|
Yes. You wear beer around your neck.
and I've made a lot of additional purchases to gather unlikely supplies for different artistic endeavors (floorboards and molding for frames, old old old mason jars for garden lighting, old windows for picture frames, etc etc etc).
At the Big Pour, you can taste hundreds of different beers from man many breweries, many of them local to Southwestern Pa.
You can also taste delicious food from restraunts in Pittsburgh.
There's live music.
You can win a kegerator.
You can craft a coaster out of reused materials.
I mean, really... what is not to love???
These are my only two pictures of the event.
I was busy.
The bad news for you all is that it's over for this year,
but it will return!
and it's worth the wait.
