Here are the Top Five Things To Do in Pittsburgh for June 26 – 28
Tales of the Odd West
Mystery’s Most Wanted presents, “Montana Marie Gets Gunned Down at Three,” a night of improv, comedy and murder! Things are hopping at the Horny Toad Saloon (hopping, get it?) in the frontier town of Camel Rock. A saloon girl, a bandito, a deputy and a singing cowboy try to figure out who gunned down the toughest, hairiest sheriff in the Old West.
It’s a late night show at the Cabaret at Theater Square, 655 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh on Saturday, June 28th.

Diamonds are Forever
Want to help out Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and sparkle while you do it? Go to Diamonds and Denim on Market Square, Saturday evening, June 28, 2014 in Market Square. Be casual and sophisticated at the same time. You’ll be at a grand celebration but you’ll also be helping out the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation Transplantation Surgery Auxiliary.

We be Jammin’
No, there isn’t Jelly in Shadyside. It’s the Jam on Walnut! Three Saturdays in the summer Walnut Street will be blocked off for an outdoor concert benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Western Pennsylvania Chapter.
Come to the big block party on June 28, 2014 at 7:00 pm and welcome Chris Higbee to the Shadyside stage.

Pittsburgh misses Marvin Hamlisch. The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will celebrate his life with “Play it Again, Marvin!” Pianist Kevin Cole wrote and produced this tribute to the award-winning composer. There will be family videos and personal memories and, of course, great music.
You can hear it all at Heinz Hall, which is STILL located at 600 Penn Avenue, Pittsburgh.
And now…A Sixth Thing…
Mash it Up
The Sixth thing is a bunch of great things all in one; much like those Matryoshka nesting dolls. Brooklyn Beer comes to Pittsburgh. The award-winning craft brewery is taking over Pittsburgh; celebrating neighborhood culture, emerging artist and the local food scene. It’s not too late to get into the game and join them as they tour the city with the Brooklyn Brewery Mash Tour. There will be a Found footage Festival, a slow supper and a closing party at Club Café. Heck, they’ve got more than Five Fun Things To Do in Pittsburgh on their website! The Festival runs from June 21 to June 28.
