Upcoming Events

    Tastier than a fruitcake, easier to assemble than a Fisher Price playhouse, for the FOURTH year in a row, we are bringing some of Pittsburgh’s finest writers together to entertain you with tales of their holiday work experiences.

    $5 suggested donation, proceeds benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.

    The readers will channel their inner-Sedaris, and offer up tales from their time as food service employees, retail workers, and other assorted time-card punchers during the bleak months of November and December. They will attempt to locate their hoilday spirit. Or THE holiday spirits (aka, Jim, Jack and maybe even Johnny).

    Just like signing the group birthday card or buying overpriced crap from your co-worker’s kid’s school fundraiser, UGLY HOLIDAY SWEATERS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED.

    Hosted by Jason Baldinger (who was once run over by a Black Friday crowd on a rampage for office supplies), and Stephanie Brea (who probably stole that art book she gave you for Christmas in 2001).

    The Lineup:

    Becky Corrigan
    Angele Ellis
    Rich Gegick
    Lori Jakiela
    Andrea Laurion
    Deesha Philyaw
    Meghan Tutolo
    Matt Ussia
    Bob Walicki
