“I Will Stay If…” Comes to Pittsburgh


Our friends at the Great Lakes Urban Exchange (aka GLUE) are bringing their “I Will Stay If…” party idea to Pittsburgh.

“Every party results in photographs of participants holding signs that tell what it is about their city that would make them stick with it. The photos will be data for GLUE to play a part in reviving and setting urban policy,” the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette explained in today’s paper.

This idea may sound familiar – we wrote about the party in Detroit a few months ago (see photo above).

The fun is 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the Shadow Lounge, 5972 Baum Blvd., East Liberty.

    This is a great idea. Too bad, I won’t be able to make it. Try to do a post-post.

    I”m 27. I have an MFA and I’m in law school; my husband is a lawyer for a nonprofit. I live in Pittsburgh. I will stay. Period. Because Pittsburgh is an outstanding place to live.
