Redfin Blues

Soul Merchants Down By The River
Washington's Landing, June 14th, 2008
The Pittsburgh Soul Merchants are scheduled to play Redfin Blues Marina and Restaurant on Washington's Landing, 100 Waterfront Drive, Pittsburgh, 15222 on June 14th at 7:00 PM

The band features Keith Starling on Bass Guitar and Vocals, Thurman "T" Starling on Drums and vocals, Kimmer Williams on percussion and vocals and Randy Gombar on Guitar and Vocals.
Redfin Blues
Why a city built on three rivers is not chock full of riverside dining spots has always puzzled me. I know that our riverbanks were once the province of dirty steel mills, but I thought we had gone beyond that. Wouldn't it be nice if we could redd up more of our waterfront and create lots of new eating destinations where one can enjoy river life with his sandwich or sirloin?

Thank goodness for Redfin Blues. This unique little eatery hangs out over the Washington's Landing marina docks on the Allegheny River. It has existed since the marina was developed in the early 1990s. The restaurant space was originally called Trolls and became Redfin Blues when new tenants arrived in 2003. The space has once again changed hands, and the new team has totally renovated the old site and vastly improved the layout of both the restaurant and the terrace.



The new owners are Clint Pohl and partners. Pohl has a long history of creating successful dining destinations in Pittsburgh. His Andora restaurant on Mt. Nebo Road in Ohio Township and Halo on East Carson Street on the South Side are popular with Pittsburgh's most demanding diners. The Pohl group gutted Redfin's interior and improved the esthetics by reducing the size of the bar inside the restaurant and moving the outside bar. Now the bar flows seemlessly from interior to exterior on one side of the building. This means that the entire deck is reserved for diners, where before a large portion was dedicated to the Tiki Bar.

Redesigned railings on the deck have opened up the river vistas and allow those dining outside to have an unobstructed view of passing herons and barges and racing sculls. Best of all, the plastic chairs and wobbly tables that once provided seating have been replaced with handsome and sturdy tables and chairs and canvas umbrellas. The deck now seats 90, plus 30 seats on the side patio surrounding the outside bar. There are 28 seats inside the restaurant. Although the very casual ambience of the old Redfin Blues remains, the new Redfin has raised the standards of comfort, style and service. Even the tiny kitchen has been improved. Unfortunately, the kitchen cannot be enlarged because of other buildings on the property.

Chet Garland, the talented chef at Halo, is currently dividing his time between Halo and Redfin Blues. The Redfin kitchen is minuscule, and the riverfront crowd is not looking for fancy food, but Garland is creating a menu that will satisfy all while using fresh, quality ingredients and simple preparations.

There is live musical entertainment from 7 to 11 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday. There also is free docking below the restaurant deck for boaters. With a hiking and biking trail that runs from Heinz Field to Millvale skirting the property, fresh-air lovers can get to Redfin Blues on foot or two wheels. Whether arriving by land or by water, the welcoming deck at Redfin will not disappoint.

The location is obviously Redfin's greatest asset. Pittsburgh has nothing else quite like it. It is a delight to see this great spot now get the kind of management and attention to detail that it deserves. There can be no more attractive place to dine in the open air with a view of our great city on the banks of one of our three rivers. You might have to wait for a table on weekend nights but even the wait is enjoyable in such a spot.

"Nancy Crow: Works from 1988-2008" Exhibition
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
14 Jun 2008
The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University presents “Nancy Crow: Works from 1988­-2008,” featuring more than 50 quilts that make it the largest exhibition ever of Crow’s work. On June 11, Crow will lecture and sign copies of her books at 7 p.m. in McConomy Auditorium in the University Center. Former Miller Gallery Director Petra Fallaux curates the summer exhibition, which opens with a reception June 12 from 5 to 8 p.m. and runs through August 15.
The Regina Gouger Miller Gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Admission is free.

Rather than assembling a “greatest hits” compilation or a chronological survey of Crow’s career, “Nancy Crow: Works from 1988-­2008” presents the works with an eye toward uncovering the artist’s process of discovery in these pivotal years. The exhibition includes examples of her quilts “Bow Tie,” “Chinese Souls” and “Linear Studies” series, as well as more than 30 works from the “Color Blocks” and “Constructions” series, including a half-dozen new quilts that will be unveiled at the exhibition.
