It has been an intense stretch of 17-hour days this week. Sun up to sun down! The First Annual Pittsburgh Fashion Summit was a huge success! Mayor Peduto was there to kick the day off, and they officially announced me as host for the Pittsburgh Fashion Alliance and we filmed our first episode at the Summit that day!

I left the Summit and attended a private dinner for Pittsburgh Influencers at Bridges & Bourbon, and caught a sneak peek of their Spring Menu that blew me away! It’s all in the details and this place amazes me! From the smoking (literally) cocktails, gold utensils and the uniforms that were designed by Kiya Tomlin, Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin’s wife, this place is top-notch, and unlike anything else in Pittsburgh.

Night on the Town

Speaking of, let’s talk downtown! I’m so excited to share a few Nat fave hot spots that are diverse and in walking distance from one another. My friends and I just did a night out on the town; here’s what went down!

Start on Penn Avenue, and nestled between 10th and 9th is Bridges and Bourbon. Sample the menu and soak in the incredibly unique experience the mixologists will give you.  It’s like dinner, education and a show! After you’re warmed up and got your pre-game on, leave Bridges and head to 7th Avenue and stop in at Howl At The Moon. 

You and your friends will have great service, sing- along and have some laughs at this full band, live, dueling piano style, interactive entertainment right in the heart of the city.  From there, go just a couple doors down to Social House Seven. They have a diverse Asian menu, but a cool hidden gem is that on certain nights it turns into a DJ dance party. I also love crossing over the Koi fish walkway as you enter! 

I have a HUGE surprise…I chatted with the managers while I was out and each of these places are going to give our listeners their very own “Natalie, Behind the Velvet Rope” experience if you go and mention my name or show name, N’at Around Town. So exciting! Here are those specials:

Red Light Release Day!

And of course, today is the big day; the highly anticipated release of my latest single, Red Light Featuring Gallo Locknez! It’s now available across all streaming platforms; Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.  The song was mixed by 6-time Grammy winner Jimmy Hoyson, and Recorded at Fire K Studios – an amazing team of all ‘Burgh Peeps and created and produced right here in Pittsburgh! I’m trying my best to keep all I do, even for my national and global audiences, all sourced from right here in the ‘Burgh, baby!

Tomorrow (Saturday) night is my Single Release cocktail party at Eddie Merlots at 7 pm! I thought I was going to dinner with a couple of friends as I normally hideout on release day, but now it’s turned into a giant Entertainment Industry Pittsburgh Party; so grab your friends and come down! Have a great week Pittsburgh!
