Watch: Knit the Bridge Timelapse Video
The Warhol Bridge’s 48-hour makeover gets distilled into a beautiful two-minute video.
No words will do this justice, so just watch. Congratulations to the hundreds of Pittsburghers and people from around the world who made Warhol’s birthday sweater possible. Timelapse video by Annette Sandberg.
#Fun: History Center to Host Fourth Annual Bocce Tournament
This Saturday, the Sen. John Heinz History Center will host Bocce Brawl IV. Alright, that’s not really the name of the event, but it should be (Editor’s note: We’ve been YouTubing far too many early-’90s WWF clips lately).
Head to the History Center to watch more than 30 teams toss out the pallino and throw down for a worthy cause at the Fourth Annual Bocce Tournament & Festival. Really, the bocce is just an afterthought. Try the Italian food from the Common Plea, including sandwiches, eggplant timbale, spumoni, gelato and a selection of Italian beer and wine.
Our contributing photographer Martha Rial captured the spirit of bocce in Bloomfield earlier this month. It’s an authentic slice of Pittsburgh. Watch it below.
