21st Street Coffee
After 15 years in business, Downtown Cafe 21st Street Coffee announced that it will be permanently closed. The store was originally located in the Strip District, which is where it got its name, before moving downtown a few years ago. “After 15 years, this amazing part of our lives known as 21st Street Coffee and Tea ends. Thank you everyone who worked here or who have visited over the years. We will miss it,” the staff wrote on a social Media contribution.
Eat well $
The Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership recently launched Good Eat $, a program that encourages people to eat out downtown restaurants. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, guests receive a 25% discount on selected restaurants, including Bae Baes Kitchen, Hello Bistro, Market St. Grocery, Sree’s Foods and much more. The cost difference is covered by the Richard King Mellon Foundation, and the program only runs as long as the funding runs. Downtownpittsburgh.com/goodeatsdowntown
Barrel & Flow Festival
The beer festival, formerly known as Fresh Fest, is renamed the Barrel & Flow Festival. Despite the change, the festival will have the same goals. “Our collaborations and goals of the economic strengthening of the black community will be continued with global aspirations and national reinforcements and are still significant and necessary,” says the festival website. Their first event under the rebrand will take place September 10-12 at SouthSide Works. barrelandflow.com
