Fleet Feet Liberty Mile

If you’re looking for a fun way to get in shape and meet new people, 5K races are one of the best ways to do it. A 5K race is also a great way to support the Liberty Mile, our local community organization that works hard every day to make sure we can all enjoy our favorite places without fear of being hit by cars. And this year’s Fleet Feet Liberty Mile is no exception!To give back even more than just their hard-earned dollars in registration fees, runners will be supporting the Liberty Mile Foundation on race day by wearing special T-shirts and purchasing raffle tickets for great prizes—including a top-of-the-line treadmill from Fleet Feet Sports Pittsburgh!

Held every year on the first Saturday of June at The Warhol Museum, Special EFX features live performances from local musicians and DJs as well as screenings of short films created by both amateur and professional filmmakers from around Pittsburgh.

Knowing and Naming: Abstraction Beyond Reality

It’s easy to see that abstraction is an essential part of our experience. In a world where everything is constantly changing, it can be difficult to grasp the bigger picture. While we have many different ways of seeing and understanding the world, abstraction remains an important tool for making sense of it all.

GUITAR: The Instrument That Rocked The World

What is a guitar and how does it work? Like most instruments, guitars are played by placing your fingers on the strings and plucking them to make sounds. The guitar’s body (the part you hold) is hollowed out of wood or some other material like plastic or metal. There are six strings on a standard acoustic guitar that run from the body along the neck to an end pin—a small piece fastened to the body as if it were an antenna. Each string has its own tuning peg (to tune up), and there are usually two sets of tuning pegs so you can change between different tunings without having to retune each string individually. The tuning pegs allow you to raise or lower each string by turning them clockwise or counterclockwise until they’re in tune with each other—or close enough! If one note sounds too high when all other notes seem fine, try turning its tuning peg in opposite directions until they match up better. It might take several tries before finding which direction works best for your instrument because every person plays differently: some musicians prefer higher notes while others prefer lower ones; some play faster than others; some use heavier strings than others; etcetera…

Pittsburgh Steelers

The Steelers are a professional American football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Steelers compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference (AFC) North division. Founded in 1933, the Steelers are the oldest franchise in the AFC.

Pittsburgh is a great place to visit and experience the best of what our city has to offer. There are so many festivals, events, and things to do in Pittsburgh that it can be overwhelming at times! That being said, if you’re looking for a fun event that will entertain both children and adults then we recommend checking out the special EFX show at Stage AE on October 13th.
