Tomorrow is the first day of summer, the summer solstice and the Wiccan Lesser Sabbats. It is Martha Washington’s birth anniversary (1731) and the on slot of Hurricane Agnes (1972).
Free Celtic concert Friday at 7 p.m. John P Murtha Amphitheater in Kittaning. Gaelic Storm will be performing as the first free show of the Arts on the Allegheny series. (Trivia buffs, Gaelic Storm was the band performing as the Titanic sank on the name sake movie. Hopefully we won’t need them to perform as the amphitheater sinks. ) Also performing will be Ben Valasek and the Slim Society. Between sets, Patrick Murphy will be entertaining with his tall, and occasionally true tales. More info at their web site or by calling 724.543.2091.
I’m not saying this negatively, but the Pittsburgh Glass Center is one of five non profits in the City that really know how to use the press. I see their name, The National Aviary, the Mattress Factory and the Warhol more than any other. They have a new exhibit, 10 x 10 x 10, all pieces are under 10 inches tall, 10 inches wide and 10 inches deep, hence the name, if you’re deice (just having some fun with a play on words, no offense meant). It runs through September 17 and is open 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Fridays through Sundays. More info at their web site or by calling 412.3652145.
Here’s a web site that’s kind of interesting. You can get murals by named artists from Murals Your Way, sort of like wallpaper. It’s like buying a print instead of the original. Some of them you can move around like those Fat Heads sporting figures. You can get them with a vinyl finish for damp/wet areas like your porch, the movable ones or ones on a canvas kind of material. They have over a thousand to choose from. I didn’t see any Deco, Aztec or Incan. They only had four Egyptian, but tons of other kinds like wildlife, tropical, etc.
I had lunch the other day at a Mexican restaurant I haven’t been to in awhile. Mendoza Express reminds me of so many the Spanish restaurants dotting South Florida I used to go to. It’s a great little restaurant at the bottom of Mansfield Avenue and Rt 50 below Greentree, I guess it’s Scott. Check it out for lunch or dinner if you get a chance.
Well, I guess that’s about it. I’m going to go and play out in the garden, have a great day,
