The outbound Fort Pitt Tunnel is closed. Please plan accordingly. Or better yet, just don’t go downtown this weekend. Detours, traffic, angry drivers…
Consol Energy Center is prepped to open soon! The kick-off event is Paul McCartney August 18th & 19th. If one-fourth of the Beatles isn’t your style, other events might catch your eye:
Lady Gaga - September 5th
Nickelback with Three Days Grace & Buckcherry - September 17th
PENS VS. RED WINGS - September 22nd (Good luck getting tickets to this. Better keep listening to the radio and hope someone is giving tickets away.)
Chelsea Handler - December 4th
Justin Bieber - December 13th
Ok, so there are a lot of gaps in the calendar, but those gaps are filled with hockey because, well, Consol Energy Center was built for hockey. Hockey in Pittsburgh is good, and it would seem that Consol is going to deliver.

Pittsburgh Magazine is hosting the 3rd annual Best of the ‘Burgh Party on September 16th. Tickets go one sale August 9th. Surprisingly, this event does not look exciting. Spending an evening on a boat? Not for me. I’m disappointed that Pittsburgh didn’t disclose anything happening on the boat.
It looks like CMU starts classes August 23rd and Pitt opted for August 30th. Interesting choices, if you ask me. I always preferred to start classes early. There’s nothing like a full month for winter break and being done for the year by the first weekend in May. Avoid I-79 and Oakland the weekends before these dates. Also, avoid going out the Thursdays following these dates; I’m sure there will be a lot of catching up among students and I’m positive they are thirsty.
Ok, I’m going to listen to Taylor Swift and be happy. Is it just me or does she always sound a little breathy? Doesn’t matter. Still think she’s great.
What concerts at Consol are you looking forward to?
