Nac comes on my show to visit different events in town that we find fun and interesting. Conventions, Pinball Tournaments, Gaming, Baraoke. We love Nerding out together to discuss what is happening around town. This was my first convention, and the Fonz, the bully from Christmas Story, and Tom Savini all managed to do some plugs for me. Not a bad time at all.
Trundle Manor is easily one of the strangest places in Pittsburgh, Pa. Join me as I take the tour of this unique place in Pittsburgh, Pa.
I grew up loving puzzles and games, and I still do. When I heard about an interactive puzzle in Pittsburgh, I had to have the owners on the show. Well, first I had to go through the puzzle to see if my group could beat it. I love picking up different things to do in cities while I travel, the stranger the better. Joe and Cory Deasy found something similar in Budapest, and brought the idea back here to Pittsburgh. Ahh the glory of traveling! Now their idea has taken hold, and is becoming THE spot for friends and family to challege themselves against the clock, to beat the Prison, and the Laboratory in under 60 minutes. Imagine you start off handcuffed. That is all I am telling you. Tune in, and hear more about what their plans are,and how they came up with this amazing idea, as walk you through ESCAPE ROOM PGH. I can't wait to try another one soon!!!
Take a walk through Pittsburgh Winery with me, as I talk with Tim from the Buzz Poets, about how he got started in wine, his tips for making great wine at home, and other fun facts about Pittsburgh Winery. Pittsburgh Winery is a great place in the Historic Strip District of Pittsburgh. Hit it up for a lovely evening out to enjoy a glass or two, or take a bottle home with you! Cheers!
Tom is a very interesting local author who wrote the novel Tomorrow and Tomorrow. I was so lucky to have him on the show to chat about his method for writing, and some of his upcoming projects. He was so kind to sit in on my book club, and answer questions about the book. Being able to pick an author's brain is a very amazing thing. Seeing how they worked out the writing, the characters and plot, and put everything together. It blows my mind. I hope you enjoy, and I hope you pick up a copy for yourself as well. You can get a copy of his book below, and he is also coming out with a new cover for it in May. The image is below as well.
