Five Reasons Why, If You’re In The Pittsburgh Area, You Need To Attend “The Weekend Brunch Party” This Saturday

1. Because I’m one of the hosts, and I want to see y’all niggas. And I want to recoup the money I put up to rent the space.

2. Because this party — which is actually a day party with food, not a brunch — is a collaboration between several Black organizations in the city, including BGSO (Black Graduate Student Organization), NSBE (National Society of Black Engineers), BLSA (Black Law Students Association), and The Greendale Commission. Basically, although Pittsburgh is like 6.8% Black, 50% of that 6.8% will be there. That’s some quick math for ya ass.

3. Because there will be complimentary fried chicken (wings and breasts), mac and cheese, and waffles. And not just some random awkwardly cooked potluck shit made by someone who read a recipe for jerk wings last night on Pinterest and wants to impress their #MCM, but food made by the actual chefs at SAVOY Restaurant.

4. Because there will be a “Honey Jack O’Clock” — where there will be free shots of Honey Jack for everyone. (I might even literally walk around with a bottle to give niggas shots. Stay tuned.)

5. Because the enterprising millennial niggas who comprise the Greendale Commission have a history of throwing successful house parties, as you can see from the video they created to promote the event. (And yes, that’s me at the 17 second mark drinking what I’m going say was water.)

Doing something at a club is obviously a different dynamic, but we hope to create the same vibe.

The party is from 1pm to 6pm at Savoy Restaurant. It’s supposed to be 75 and sunny tomorrow, so we’ll have the patio space available too. Aint shit else to do the day before Easter, so come through and be merry and mirthful and lit and shit. You won’t regret it.

These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

  • Damn, I wish I was in Pittsburgh. And if it wasn’t for you, I wouldn’t realize Pittsburgh is such a White place. That’s that Midwest vibe for you though. Good luck, and I hope you recoup the money for the space. The Feminist Octopus needs to eat!

  • Zil Nabu

    Would it be wrong to leave one’s mother in Chicago after she flew in from NY to visit, and head to Pittsburgh for this festive occasion? I’m asking for a friend.

    • BrothasKeeper

      *looks the other way*

    • Charles Johnson

      Tell your friend that I would do it, but it’s because zero fvcks given is unjustly applicable to family, even the matriarch. Smdh at myself, ah welp

      • Zil Nabu

        I appreciate…I mean my friend appreciates that advice. Leave momma a key and a full fridge and be out!

  • Jennifer

    Dang! This event would have cost $50 in DC and sold out 3 minutes after the tickets went online.

    • LMNOP

      I think Pennsylvania’s state motto should be “come to P. A. The cost of living is okay.”

      • Mr. Mooggyy

        or “Come to PA, Where you won’t see many black people outside of Philly”

        • Charles Johnson

          It’s New York and jersey with Alabama in between

      • Jennifer

        “…and we also have day parties.” Fixed it.

  • NomadaNare

    But is it a *trap* weekend brunch party though

  • BlackMamba

    If I go will I be Bougie or Boujee?

  • Mr. Mooggyy

    I could use the excuse that I’m gonna visit my grandmother in PA……Naw I can’t use grandma as a scapegoat. Right? I mean, I can make a pit stop! Say I got a flat tire (while having a shot of Honey Jack), and just decided to stay in Pittsburgh!

    ……Someone talk me outta using my grandma, cuz I know it ain’t right! Right?
