Miracle of freedom
705 Liberty Avenue, downtown. instagram.com/miraclepgh
This pop-up bar announced on Instagram that unfortunately over 100 glassware had been stolen from their store over the weekend. Miracle is an annual charity pop-up that supports local efforts like 412 Food Rescue and Amy’s Army. This year they also support the Pittsburgh VFW and Refuge for Women. Miracle estimates that sales of the jars would have been around $ 1,000, or about 50 meals that would have gone to families in need, so stealing them is especially daunting. You can continue to support Miracle’s efforts by visiting the site now through December 31st, operating hours Sun-Wed. from 4 p.m. to noon and Fri-Sat from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m.
