Have you ever found yourself saying, “I just love libraries, but all those rules really do me in; I wish I could just run amok and enjoy delicious food and booze while I was at the library”? Because if you have, congratulations, there are now at least 3 of us that feel that way. And if you haven’t, you really should. And best of all, the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh lets you do just that with their After Hours at the Library series.
We were able to go to the last one back in March, but there is another one coming up next week! You can get details of the upcoming event and buy your tickets at the CLP website, and then check out our photoblog of the last event to see what you’ll get to experience!
The theme of the event we went to was In Pursuit of Music: from Wolfgang to Gangnam Style. The interactive chalkboards on the main floor invited you to write about your first concert (mine was Alan Jackson & Trisha Yearwood, and Michael’s was Metallica, for the record).
Live music going all night. (This is the band Nameless in August.)
Probably my favorite thing about the event was the Live Action Trivial Pursuit. You had six categories (pop, rock, country, classical, hip hop, and R&B), and had to meet volunteers dressed up as the categories. They would ask you a question, and if you got it right, you got a checkmark in your program.
If you’re around in the evening on October 17th, we really recommend you check out the After Hours event! In addition to having a great time, you’ll also be supporting an important Pittsburgh institution, the Carnegie Library! (Even better? A portion of your ticket cost is tax-deductible! You’ve got nothing to lose!) Check out the website – tickets are on a discount until October 13th.
