friends, lovers, countrypeople, lend us your feet! last month we sprang, we flung, and all can agree that fun was had by most. and now, the stars have aligned to provide us with yet another opportunity to drink, dance, and be merry, all while comfortably socially-distancing on an outdoor, open-air dance-floor hidden away in an idyllic scenic locale with plenty of space to frolic.

do not lose hope, pizzburgh! our fight against the covid is finally bearing fruit: vaccinations are increasing, restrictions are loosening, and we surmise that there’s a lot more smiles occurring these days behind those masks. but let us not forget those dear to us whose livelihoods are still being impacted by the pandemic.

so with them in mind, for this Fling we’ve partnered with Bloomfield’s favorite watering hole, Tina’s Corner Store & Bar, to help raise funds for “NIGHT LIFE LINE”. This tireless pizzburgh-based crisis relief organization strives to provide grants to local hospitality workers economically affected by covid-19, and we can’t think of a better non-profit to support during this time.

and when he caught wind of what we were up to, Belvedere’s most-lovable ball-capped bar manager, Lee “Silky Smooth” Selkowitz, whipped out his trusty rolodex and within an afternoon, had cases of ale lined up to be donated in support of the collective cause.

don’t forget: these outdoor shindigs fill up fast! since we strictly adhere to the COVID-19 guidelines of the Allegheny County Health Department, attendance is restricted to a limited capacity. so smoosh that ticket link without delay: with delicious cocktails from Tina’s, tasty brews from Lee, music from us, and dancing by YOU, this Fling is a sequel that’s shaping up to be just as good as the first edition. spread the word; we’ll see you all soon.

can’t hardly wait! xo
