Spend Mutter's Day With the Animal Rescue League

Something tells us this canine fashion show at the Priory has serious YouTube potential.

Canine Fashion at The Priory

There are a lot of words that could describe the usual fashion show. “Uplifting” and “heartwarming” aren’t typically among them. That’ll change this Sunday, however, as the Animal Rescue League presents its “Mutter’s Day” Fashion Show and Luncheon. New “Mutters” that have adopted pets from the ARL will model Women’s Fashions, courtesy of Carabella, while the smiling pooches they rescued will walk the runway in their own fashion show.
 
There will be shopping, a silent auction and lunch in addition to the main event, and everything benefits the Animal Rescue League. Over the course of a year, they take in more than 10,000 animals to their shelter and their wildlife rehabilitation center; while many go from rough backgrounds to become loving pets (and runway models!), there’s always more work to be done. Help some pets in need with a lovely luncheon!

(Grand Hall at the Priory, 614 Pressley St., North Side. Sunday: Doors open at 11:30 a.m., lunch served by 12:30 p.m. $60; tickets available at the door. Info: animalrescue.org/events)


Night Owls, Get to the Show

Lawrenceville’s annual Art All Night event is one of the weirdest, wildest and most democratic gallery shows in existence. Anyone can contribute a piece (just one), and no artist is turned away; that means you’ll see a bit of everything, from giant works created by seasoned pros to first tries by budding amateurs. And, just like the name says, this is a nocturnal endeavor, with the show open all the way through the wee hours and a slew of performances to keep you awake. The 15th annual extravaganza is a must-see if you’re in the neighborhood, if you love art or even if you simply can’t sleep Saturday night.

(97 40th St., Lawrenceville. Sat-Sun., 4 p.m.-2 p.m. Free. Info: artallnight.org)


Want to Know a Juicy Secret?

Have you had a conversation with a particularly attentive stranger in the past eight years or so? If that stranger was Robert Isenberg or Brad Keller, a version of your story might make it to the stage this weekend. The Pittsburgh Monologue Project was created by Isenberg (one of PM’s busiest contributors) in 2004 to turn random conversations with strangers into theatrical monologues; after nearly a decade of performances in various venues around town, it has landed at ModernFormations Gallery for a run produced by 12 Peers Theater. Get a full preview of this one-of-a-kind event in this week’s edition of After Dark!


In Theaters:
New films coming to Pittsburgh this weekend include the Jason Segel/Emily Blunt romantic comedy The Five-Year Engagement; the bizarre adaptation —  sort of — of Edgar Allen Poe’s works, The Raven; Jason Statham trying to keep some big bad gangsters away from a little girl in Safe; and the Israeli Academy Award nominee Footnote. PM Film Editor Sean Collier will appear on the 102.5 WDVE Morning Show Friday at 7:15 a.m. to review The Five-Year Engagement; he couldn’t make it to a screening of The Raven, but that’s just as well, as he was frustrated at the very thought of it. Tune in to 102.5-FM or DVE.com tomorrow morning for Sean’s review!
 
The eighth annual W.A.R. (Walk and Ride) Against Hunger will be held in South Side Saturday morning. Presented by UPMC Health Plan and Rainbow Kitchen, the event is the major annual fundraiser for Rainbow Kitchen, an organization that provides relief for the hungry in our community. Donate, register to walk or just stop down! Registration begins at 9 a.m. at 5 Hot Metal St. in the IBEW Local #5 Parking Lot. Find more info at rainbowkitchen.org.
 
The 18th annual MGA Sports Memorabilia Auction is Sunday at The Club at Nevillewood! Check out 125 autographed items up for live and silent auction, and get a few more autographs from special celebrity guests. Your $30 admission fee includes dinner and benefits the Myasthenia Gravis Association of Western PA. Call 412/566-1545 or visit mgawpa.org for more info.
 
The Jewish Federation of Pittsburgh’s annual JFest is tonight! The event includes performances, food, dancing, arts and more! Get the scoop here and head to jfestpgh.org for full info!
