Happy Pittsburgh Light Up Night weekend!
If you know me IRL or have followed me anywhere on social media, you might know I like the holiday season a little bit.
may or may not have a website dedicated to all things the holidays.
If you live in the Western Pennsylvania region, be sure to check out the site for all sorts of holiday events. This holiday calendar lists so many things. Here are some featured events.
This weekend is Pittsburgh Light Up Night.
Even if you’re not in the holiday spirit just yet, it’s never too early to scan events. December does go by very quickly. And if it’s not your thing, I bet someone you know (besides me, obv) would enjoy it!
Taylor Swift tix
Were you able to get Taylor Swift tickets? Somehow, I lucked into tickets. I am still pretty shocked. A friend organized a group, so I’ll actually be going to both Pittsburgh shows.
If you did not get tickets, Ticketmaster says you likely won’t.
John Aniston dies
John Aniston was a stalwart “Days of our Lives” cast member. The legendary actor died Nov. 11, his daughter, Jennifer Aniston, announced Monday.
Of course, we know him as Victor Kiriakis, a mafia leader with Greek and Italian ties who butted heads with Stefano DiMera and other villains in the fictitious town of Salem.
But few people know that Aniston’s ties to “Days of our Lives” actually began in 1970 when he portrayed Eric Richards.
Anyhow, here are a few things I’ve read this week:
- Why Everything in Tech Seems to Be Collapsing at Once (The Atlantic)
- CVS and Walgreens became fixtures of 21st century city life. Their time may be up. (Slate)
- Gen Z announces itself in midterms with Democratic boost, historic wins (WaPo)
- Trump called a protest. No one showed. Why GOP efforts to cry foul fizzled this time. (WaPo)
