Think of it – what are you most likely to do on a Friday evening, especially when the Summer season rolls in.  Yes, there are countless outdoor festivals, concerts and parades to last a lifetime, and lets not forget about the nightlife scene here in Pittsburgh.  From South Side to East Liberty, you would be pressed to not find a place to spend a loud, fun evening.

But what if you wanted to do something that was, say – a little less loud, and perhaps an evening filled with intellect and discussion (not saying that we haven’t had enlightening conversations at Mario’s with a random stranger).

For the duration of the summer season, The Frick Pittsburgh, for the fourth season in a row, is offering Summer Fridays.  Running until August 23rd, guests will have access to the museum in an almost after-hours sense of the word, being able to partake in outdoor concerts and events.

Each Friday throughout the summer from 5:00pm through 9:00pm, guests will have access to the museums’ North Lawn, allowing for a picnic-type setting. 

A wide range of performers are still on schedule to perform at The Frick, from R&B’s The Soul Merchants, live jazz performances from the Afro-American Music Institute (AAMI), as well as an outdoor art-class, with live-music from Hell’s Oasis. 

And do feel free to leave your food and beverages at home – each Friday, the museum will be host to a rotating slew of local food truck companies, offering a great assortment of food to make everyone in your family happy.  

In need of something different to occupy your time on a Friday evening?  Look no further than Summer Fridays at The Frick.
