Sharp Edge Creek House

My cohort had the ostrich burger. I had the chicken and black cherry salad with pita bread. Their chocolate pudding was more like mousse. Really wonderful. Check out their website here

Glass Slipper Ball
There was a fabulous silent auction, a delectable selection of food wine and beer tastings, and great signature cocktails designed for the ball. The centerpieces were beautiful and designed by area florists and floral designers all trying to outdo each other. The dresses and tuxedos were just gorgeous, and there was amazing music and dancing. You really felt like a queen or a princess. The live auction included art, jewelry, and trips. There was a fantastic salsa and waltz demonstration by Arthur Murray.

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
Review by Joyce Kane from Cybertary
Guest conductor Leonard Slatkin took the stage with composer Steven Stucky to introduce “Son et Lumiere” (‘Sound and Light’).  This unique work, written in 1989, blended seemingly discordant elements into a cohesive whole.  Interestingly, in only nine minutes, the music spanned multiple twists and turns.  At one point, I was reminded of Leonard Bernstein’s “West Side Story”.  At another, the blend of melodies turned much more harmonious.  In the composer’s own words, “Throughout its brief nine minutes, therefore, the piece is built almost exclusively of short, busy ostinato figures – my attempt, I suppose, to achieve the rhythmic vitality of minimalism, but without giving in to the over-simple harmonic language that sometimes comes with it.” Read the entire review here
