WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH EVENTS
Canon Fodder!: Lady Name Project Opening Reception
Pittsburgh Cigar Bar, 430 Market Street
Tuesday, March 1, 5-7pm
Ever notice the 108 names of famous men that are carved on the outside of the Carnegie Library in Oakland? LUPEC has partnered with the Skinny Building to bring you 108 Ladies who were doing basically the same things at the same times as the gentlemen in question. Join LUPEC at the Pittsburgh Cigar Bar in Market Square for the official Opening of the Lady Name Project. The featured cocktail will be “The Gentleman’s Club”—appropriate, non?
Corsets, Cocktails and Camaraderie
Frick Art and Historical Center
Wednesday, March 9, 7- 9:30pm
$5 members; $8 non-members and guests
LUPEC again joins forces with The Frick Art and Historical Center to explore a century of women. The evening will feature guided tours of the Bakewell Glass Exhibit (starting in the 1820s), a special tour of Clayton (covering the 1890s), and discussion of the 1920s, including an appropriately flapperesque cocktail. As with all Frick events, this one promises to be fun, educational, singular, and heavy on the hors d’ouvres.
Gender Bender!; Celebrating F to M, M to F, and Other Gender Trailblazers
Muse, 228 South Highland Avenue, Shadyside
Friday, March 11, 7-10pm
The official, government sanctioned motto for Women’s History Month 2005 is “Women Changing America.” LUPEC takes the idea further to celebrate men who have become women, women who have become men, and all the brave people who have actively pushed the boundaries of gender. Thematic cocktails, quizzes and prizes will be provided
LUPEC on Rhythm Sweet and Hot
WDUQ, 90.3 FM
Saturday, March 19, 9pm-12am
RS&H is one of the best, most packed with joie de vivre radio shows in the nation and LUPEC will proudly be serving up thematic cocktails to honor such early jazz pioneers as Mildred Bailey, Helen Forrest, and bandleader Ina Mae Hutton. Tune in for some of the best music ever with the added ambiance of actual cocktail shakers shaking in the background!
Girls Night Out at Joseph Beth Bookstore
2705 East Carson Street
Friday, March 25, 7-9pm
The lovely new Joseph Beth Bookstore in the Brigadoon-like South Side Works complex has invited LUPEC to help them celebrate Women’s History Month! Details are being ironed out, but cocktails, hors d’ouvres, and good book suggestions are all assured. Check the LUPEC website for updates!
Under the Icing: The Secret Lives of The Good Girls
Kelly’s Bar, 6012 Penn Circle South
Saturday, March 26, 7-10pm
Last year, LUPEC and Kelly’s had a grand old time feteing the Bad Girls. This year the Good Girls get their due as LUPEC salutes just how bad a good girl can be. Kelly’s is one of the best places in Pittsburgh to get quality cocktails and this event will feature good cocktails that are also very, very “bad.” In a good way. Also: we don’t know yet if we are selling them or giving them away, but expect cupcakes!
