Join me for the seventh annual Taste of Station Square to benefit the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society!

The event gives you a discount ticket to visit as many restaurants and shops as you can, a ticket for one of many wonderful raffle prizes (to which I’ll be donating, details below) and a visit to the Gateway Party Liner, docked on the Monongahela River, where you can visit with adoptable cats and dogs!

There will also be outdoor entertainment and a cash bar as well as appetizers offered in the Square.

Station Square was once the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad pedestrian station along the Monongahela River, and today maintains the marble floors, cast iron gingerbread and vaulted ceilings of stained glass windows. During WWII, those windows were painted black so the light wouldn’t shine through; during and after the war the steel mills were running full steam and you may remember photos of Pittsburgh in that day so clouded with smog and sooty air that the street lights came on at noon. It was decades later during the city clean-ups of Pittsburgh’s Renaissance I that the windows were once again uncovered and the building, no longer serving rail passengers, became a multi-use shopping and office site.

Right on the river on a summer night, nothing is more beautiful. And then you get to mix with other animal lovers and meet adorable cats and dogs! I can’t wait.
