Pittsburgh Jazzlive International Festival in the Cultural District

Keeping with the Pittsburgh events this week, I’m sharing my time at the Pittsburgh Jazzlive International Festival last weekend, held throughout the Cultural District in downtown Pittsburgh. They had a packed weekend full of performances by local, national, and international groups.

I stopped by on the first night, when they had free performances happening all night at different spots downtown. A friend’s husband actually plays in a jazz band, so we wanted to go hear him perform!

After listening to the band for a while, we were all starving, since we had come right from work. Since we were nearby, we decided to see if we could snag a table at Meat & Potatoes, one of my favorite restaurants. Usually you need to make a reservation at least a week in advance, but somehow, there was a table for us and they sat us in 10 minutes. I had a delicious meal of bone marrow and mushroom risotto, and went home quite happy!

It was a great night of live music, good food, and friends, and I always love hanging out in the Cultural District because there’s always something going on!
