Annual Iris Show
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
17 May 2008
Warm, sultry days in the garden just wouldn't be the same without the bold forms and colors of Irises and the Pittsburgh Iris & Daylily Society (PIDS) is getting ready for their annual iris show.
The Iris Show, now in its 56th year, is a juried cut flower show sponsored by the American Iris Society (AIS) that offers the opportunity to iris gardeners in the western Pennsylvania area to showcase their best Irises.
Members as well as non-members are welcome to enter. The judges are accredited by the American Iris Society (AIS) and ribbons are awarded (both at a local and national level) to the exhibits that meet specific criteria.
Entries for the juried show are accepted from 8:00 – 10:00AM on Saturday, May 17. Once the judges award the prizes the cut flower exhibit will be open to the general public the rest of the day on Saturday and throughout Sunday, May 18 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
The show is not only a way to recognize the efforts of local gardeners but also a way to get information, talk with Master Gardeners, buy new or recently introduced plants and best of all, meet other gardeners like yourself, and even join the organization. Members of the society as well as the judges and the exhibitors will be on hand to answer questions and share their experiences with irises culture and gardening in general.
The show is free and open to the public and in addition to the cut flower exhibit there will be plants for sale starting at 10:00 AM during the May Market hours––at the Phipps Garden Center in Mellon Park, Shadyside---1059 Shady Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15213, (412) 441-4442.

For more information on the show, irises or PIDS please contact:

The Cellar Dwellers Present a Double Dose of Improv in Aliquippa
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
17 May 2008

Local comedy troupe, The Cellar Dwellers, are performing a double-header show at the Sheffield Lanes Fallout Shelter this Saturday, May 17th. Both performances, starting at 8PM and 10PM, will feature over 90 minutes of theater improvisation made up on the spot, as well as performances by the Pittsburgh-based musical-comedy duo Bait & Switch.
Improvisational theater features comedy scenes and games made up on the spot with the help of audience suggestions. The Cellar Dwellers have been perfecting this hysterical form of theater for over ten years now, and this Saturday they’ll be performing two back-to-back shows. The “Family Show” begins at 8:00pm, and is for all ages; the second, “Late Show” starts at 10:00pm for people 21 and over. Both performances will feature over 90 minutes of improv.

Joining the Cellar Dwellers is the Pittsburgh-based parody duo Bait & Switch, also known as Sean Donaldson and Addi Twigg. The band puts a hilarious twist on pop songs by blending them with different genres of music, so you may hear the Black Eyed Peas’ “My Humps” as a country song, or Europe’s “The Final Countdown” as a kazoo medley.
The Cellar Dwellers are currently featured on Comcast OnDemand’s “Comedy Spotlight” channel, and perform a weekly improv workshop, “FN’Improv,” on the Beaver Valley Bowl in Rochester. This the first time the Dwellers have performed in the Sheffield Lanes’ newly renovated Fallout Shelter performance space.

“This new show is part of a series of performances promoting our Comcast TVshow, and reach as many people as we can,” says Cellar Dweller Joe Wichryk. Since the troupe’s improv show debuted last year, they have been performing improv shows throughout the Pittsburgh Comcast area.

Wired to Win
Calendar: Local Calendar
Quercus  
17 May 2008
Wired to Win, an extraordinary new film in IMAX®, showcases the amazing ability of the human brain to overcome adversity, accomplish the near-impossible, and power each of us to victory and success in life.

The brain’s abilities are illustrated through cyclists racing in the Tour De France. Over the course of the event, they are caught up in hair-raising crashes, dramatic battles over the Alps and Pyrenees and action-packed descents down steep mountain roads. Their ultimate goal? The finish line on the Champs-Elysees in Paris.

The film raises the questions "how do they do this?" and "why do they do this?" Ultimately the answers lie within the mind and the human brain itself.


$8 adults; $6 children 3-12 and seniors 62+

$7/$5 for members

BEGINNING WITH BOOKS PRESENTS 9th ANNUAL BEST BOOKS FOR BABIES
FREE FAMILY EVENT ON MAY 17

Beginning with Books Center for Early Literacy will present a special event unveiling its 9th Annual Best Books for Babies, featuring the year’s top books for children, ages birth to 18 months, on Saturday, May 17, 10:30 to Noon at Borders Book Stores throughout the area: Eastside, South Hills, Pittsburgh Mills, Monroeville and Northway Malls. Everyone is invited to this free, fun-filled family event.

Listen to celebrities read some Best Books for Babies titles. Enjoy light refreshments. Join in activities courtesy of Citiparks Roving Art Cart. Chat with early literacy experts from Beginning with Books. Meet Pittsburgh children’s specialists from the Best Books for Babies selection committee.

Cuddle up and read to your baby. You’ll stimulate language development, while bonding at the same time. By ‘beginning with books,’ you can open the doors to a lifelong love of reading and build a solid foundation of communications skills. All it takes is a few minutes a day to make a difference in the life of your child.

A child who has been read and talked to from a young age:
  • is better prepared to learn to read.
  • has heard more than 30 million words by age 3 and has a vocabulary of 20,000 words by age 6.
  • scores highest on reading, math and general knowledge tests.
To find out more about Beginning with Books’ Best Books for Babies, call
412-361-8560, visit our website www.beginningwithbooks.org

By connecting at an early age through nurturing adult relationships and educational programs, the non-profit Beginning with Books, located at 5920 Kirkwood Street, 15206, promotes early literacy skills that enable children to enter school prepared for success. Since 1984, Beginning with Books has provided research-based programs, services and support on how to make reading an experience of enjoyment and enrichment for every age. Our goal is to inspire children to read, adults to guide, and communities to grow together.
