Live Music + Food Trucks = Shadyside's Weather Permitting
Hear local acts play as you eat Paraguayan food from the Lomito Truck or Mexican specialties from Brassero Grill’s truck.
Mobile-food vendors show up to weekly concert series
Looking for a way to spend this Sunday evening? Weather Permitting is held weekly at Shadyside Nursery, providing live music, delicious food and good times.
Hear local acts play as you eat Paraguayan food from the Lomito Truck or Mexican specialties from Brassero Grill’s truck. Eichner’s Family Farm stand will offer seasonal vegetables and other farm-fresh products, and you can hula hoop and play games, too.
As its name suggests, the event’s status may change based on Pittsburgh’s unpredictable climate. Cross your fingers.

Juices are ‘Fresh from the Farm’ and organic
Sure, having kale in your smoothies and juices is all the rage. But Fresh from the Farm Juices' drinks one-up their average counterparts; the refreshing sips are raw with no additives and feature interesting ingredient combinations. Our current go-to is the “Limey Green,” with spinach, kale, apple, carrot, lime and cilantro. Juices are cold-pressed, meaning that the organic fruits and veggies are crushed before being pressed to get the most juice (and nutrients). The company's line is expanding, with a pepper drink debuting in the near future.

‘Modern Mixologist’ visits Steel City
When a seasoned cocktail expert visits Pittsburgh and jokes that he's relocating here, you know he had a good time. Tony Abou-Ganim, known as The Modern Mixologist, visited a few local drink spots during his (brief) trip earlier this week. Abou-Ganim is a highly respected bar professional and author; among his accomplishments, he created the cocktail program at Bellagio Las Vegas and has worked alongside such notable chefs as Mario Batali. We caught up with him about his stay. Get the full scoop here.
