New Roving Pittsburgher Reviews!
Oh Michael, You "BublĂ© " Me Way
Review by Tara Darazio
BublĂ©  is now not only one of my favorite singers, he's one of my favorite people. I have been to a lot of concerts in my day and have never come across someone so genuine. I read a blog saying that when you go to his concerts, you feel like he is crooning just for you, and I absolutely agree with that.

A Skull in Connemara, A Play You Will Dig
Review by Jo Ann R. Forrester
The play, A Skull in Connemara, written by the prolific and brilliant Martin McDonagh focuses on the gruesome practice of grave exhumation in a small town. A practice, that for many of us,  seems  unreal and something made up  from a  CSI crime show.

Lion King Feeling The Love At The Benedum In Pittsburgh
Review by Joanne Quinn-Smith
Hakuna matata: Means no worries and you truly will leave the theater with no worries after this presentation. There is almost too much going on with performers coming through the aisles and drummers in the balcony boxes. What an event of sound and sight and experience.

Information and tips not tricks on heart health gleaned from Mrs. Cardiology's Fireside Chats with her cardiologist husband, Dr. Santosh Pandit. After 30 years of wedded arranged marriage bliss to Dr. Santosh Pandit, my "fireside conversations" with him has convinced me that there is much more to cardiology care than any doctor can possibly cover in the average fifteen minute consultation. The personal experience of having taken care of my father with Congestive Heart Failure more than 10 years ago left me helpless in understanding and knowing how to help him. Today I know more that I certainly wish I knew back then. So I embark on my personal adventure to address that somewhat overwhelming world of cardiac education and I like presenting in plain English! Behind every Doctor's white coat facade churns a world of untapped education that the layperson, or would be patient, needs to hear in pure unadulterated everyday language. That's my mission to let you know of the insights that I have garnered and the mysteries that I can uncover for you about the "perils of the heart."
