What we're about

IF YOU WANT TO HOST AN EVENT: MESSAGE FRANK AT midnightmunchiespa@gmail.com and I will EMPOWER you to be an Event Organizer on 5 Meetup Groups with a reach in the Pgh Region (SW PA & a lil bit of WV and OH of over 38,000+ people).

FYI: Meetup is a WEB PAGE with a THEME that happens to be an EVENTS CALENDAR AND AN EMAIL LIST. It mostly works because of the emails.

I also send out a MEETUP NEWSLETTER about the Hosted Events Happening on those meetups Once or Twice a Week. Basically anything can be posted but no "Network Marketing" Stuff like essential oils, Amway or anything scammy. Try to make your event less like advertising and more like HEY LETS HANG OUT AND DO COOL STUFF TOGETHER. This Free and Almost Free Meetup has one extra rule Events have to be $5 or Less (aka cheap) to FREE!

If you are a performer, it's okay to say on the meetup: Hey I am doing this comedy show/band/burlesque "come and see me and let me entertain you."

DONATE: It costs me Frank, as the main organizer of this Meetup group, $240 a year to host this group on Meetup.com! Please consider a small donation to help defray this cost.

Thank you.

This Meetup is for EVENTS that have a ticket/cover of $5 or LESS or even FREE!

5-10% of the Events here on FREE & Almost FREE are SOCIAL (Hosted)

90-95% of the Events here are just informing you about cheap/cool/awesome stuff happening in the burgh region (not hosted just informational about FREE AND CHEAP EVENTS IN THE REGION).

So when there is a SOCIAL EVENT on this page with a HOST expect a couple extra emails to help make that meetup WORK and have a decent critical mass of people to make it decently fun!

There are a lot of activities in Pittsburgh that are free, or almost free - free days at museums, free concerts and films, free outdoors festivals, free cultural events ... . In addition to these (can't beat the price!), we'll post "almost free" ones where the cost is low (at most $5) compared to the fun that can be had.

This is an VERY ACTIVE MEETUP, you will get a ton of e-mail, my recommendation is if you have a secondary e-mail address use that for your user id. Or that you go up to "My Profile" on right hand side of page and select E-mail and Notifications. You still will get a bunch of e-mails but it will be more manageable. Meetups WORK because of E-mail, not because people come here to look for things to do.
FYI: Social events at places can be posted as long as it is FREE to go there or the cover is $5 or less. People can decide on their own if they are eating and drinking. Example: Lets go see this Band that has no cover charge at this Bar. If YOU want to eat or drink something while you're there that's on YOU.

It's still a FREE or ALMOST FREE event. If they charged more than $5 for cover or had a mandatory food n drink min above $5 then it won't get posted. Or a YOGA class that asks for a $5 donation is okay, $6 is not... This was preventing some social events from happening on this page and we want to encourage social\fun events on the free and almost free group.

Drinking Liberally Pittsburgh Monthly Gathering at Hough's Taproom!

Share your politics while you share a pitcher at your local progressive drinking club. An informal gathering of like-minded, left-leaners who may want to trade ideas, get more involved, or just enjoy each other’s company. Drinking Liberally meets monthly at Hough's Taproom in Greenfield. Everyone liked the place so we're trying it again. Give yourselves a little extra time to find parking. We'll be easy to find at the big table near the bar. No cover charge - just whatever you order.
