Introducing PGHretail’s sister site, PGHshare!
PGHshare is dedicated to sharing ideas about sustainable transportation for Pittsburgh. Now in Phase 2 with Ideas & Movement, we’re ready to open our site for your feedback and support.
We’ve put together a package of ideas from other cities and updates on how some are already in development. Our transportation climate has been rough to weather more recently than ever.
Though things are looking brighter with various initiatives underway, like GoBurgh, the BRT from gettherepgh.org/, there is still much to be done about making Pittsburgh a more livable city with adequate public transportation options.
Check out PGHshare’s website and find us on Facebook for updates specifically about transportation projects happening in the city!

We had a blast at our last summer California Market with local businesses claiming the runway and photo ops in front of Chubby’s for a family pageant. Check out some great moments during the day.

Much thanks to our local artist, affectionately known as “The Puppet Lady”, Cheryl Capezzuti. She is loaning us her unique and memorable puppets for our newest community event, the Dance & Drum Puppet Parade during the California Markets. Check out Studio Capezzuti for more details about her work and the annual First Night in downtown Pittsburgh that she has been organizing.
If you’re interested in becoming a puppet on parade, meet at Studio Capezzuit behind 1509 Termon Ave. at 12:45PM to pick out your puppet. Then at 2PM and 3PM, meet on California Ave. to exchange puppets and join the additional parades in the neighborhood!
Unsure what we mean? See us at 3269 California Ave. at the Brighton Heights Citizens Federation office to get some assistance!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our first Tom Friday’s BBQ & BREW OFF Contest!
We had quite a challenge getting it together and it turned out great despite set-backs. Our two home brewers, Eric and Adam, were so encouraged and happy with the turn out that they are already talking about putting together another home brew Oktoberfest this year!
In addition, Stephen K, our main champ in BBQ got an overwhelming applause by all those who were able to get their hands on his homemade Seoul City Chicken. Thanks & Congrats Stephen!
Sadly, we had a few last-minute contestant cancellations and I tried to improvise to fulfill everyone’s BBQ needs by providing BBQ Tofu and Tom Friday’s BBQ Chicken Deli cuts on the donated kaiser buns from Breadworks. Thanks so much Breadworks! And so sorry to everyone expecting more BBQ. We hope next year others will be able to participate and everyone will be available to keep their commitments!
I was a little late for the follow up on the July event, this project has been a whirl-wind of meeting great folks, getting to know my community, and preparing for more future events and collaborations! Here are a few photos from early set up before I got swept away in the contest. Thanks for understanding and look forward to the next one!
BREADWORKS! Thanks for donating buns for our contest!!!
