SUMMER GUIDE

OUT

Ease into your Pittsburgh post-vax summer with these party tips BY AMANDA WALTZ // AWALTZ@PGHCITYPAPER.COM

A

FTER ONE SUMMER of sitting in baby pools or stuck at home bored with the AC on, Pittsburgh partiers are vaccinated and chomping at the bit to mingle. Bars and clubs are ready to accommodate DJ nights, live music, and other activities bringing people returning to their dance floors, stages, and outdoor spaces. But for many, the prospect of going out again brings a mix of anticipation and anxiety. As an arts and entertainment resource, Pittsburgh City Paper understands that giving you options for the weekend also means helping you feel confident leaving the house in the first place. Turn the page for a list of tips on how to ease into your hot, post-vax summer. <

Start out small

Don’t forget your mask

The thought of jumping into big events with tons of people right away might send some people into a panic attack. Test the waters first by meeting a friend for lunch, or inviting a few people over for a small gathering. Some places also offer ways to have a more intimate night out, like COBRA Lounge (cobrapgh.com) in Bloomfield, where a small group can rent out an individual, sound-proof karaoke room closed off from the rest of the crowd.

While Pennsylvania restrictions have already started allowing maskless life for fully vaccinated residents, many businesses and events are still exercising caution. No matter where you go, remember to throw a mask in your pocket or bag. You should also check beforehand to see if a mask is required before heading out.

Consent, consent, consent This should be a given in any situation, but in a COVID-19 world, it’s important to remember that not everyone is comfortable with bodily contact yet. Before you wrap that friend you haven’t seen in over a year in a big bear hug, make sure to ask first. This also goes for handshakes, fist bumps, or any other physical touch.

Bring lozenges You and your friends have a lot of catching up to do, and your vocal chords are no longer calloused from weekends of yelling over loud music or the din of a crowd. As a result, you may wake up hoarse the next morning. To prevent this, make sure to bring a handful of cough drops or throat lozenges to your next get together.

Ear plugs are nice, too In addition to your poor throat, your

ears have become used to the low volume of many nights inside binging Netflix. As a result, that first punk show or booming bass might be a shock to the system. We recommend investing in a pair of ear plugs to avoid any ringing the following day.

Ditch the club wear (if you want) It’s probably safe to assume that your body has only known the touch of sweatpants, yoga wear, sneakers, and loose-fitting tees for the past year. Don’t feel bad wanting to avoid the pain of wearing heels again. Leave those dress clothes in the closet. Now is the time to get creative with your wardrobe, finding ways to integrate comfortable, yet stylish pieces.

Pace yourself After missing an entire year of, well, living your damn life, it makes sense

that you want to make up for lost time. As you try to fill every weekend with as many activities as possible, keep in mind that you can overdo it. Exhaustion is imminent, so don’t be surprised if you pass out on your couch after visiting a market or festival, or meeting friends at the pool. Returning to the bar and party scenes also includes the very real possibility of overindulging in potentially harmful behavior like binge drinking and increased recreational drug use. If you don’t want an entire summer of blackouts and hangovers, practice moderation. Be sure to check on your friends and fellow party-goers. Have an exit plan in place for when you or someone else becomes too inebriated, such as designating a sober driver or using rideshare or taxi service. Practicing these habits helps to ensure everyone has the maximum amount of fun while still getting home safe.

SUMMER BODIES BY TERENEH IDIA // CPCONTRIBUTORS@PGHCITYPAPER.COM

A

S MUCH AS I LOVE the wonder-

ful “pow!” and in-your-face “whoosh!” of seeing Downtown Pittsburgh upon exiting the Liberty Tunnel, my money is on the West End Bridge for the best view of the city. It is the all encompassing magnificence of the entire Golden Triangle, the confluence or Sangama in Sanskrit, framed by the rivers and the hills that really does it for me. You can feel the topography of the city, the lines of Diondega enveloping, embracing us. Stunning. Every. Time. My love of this view means nothing can tear my eyes away. Well, almost nothing. You see, on my most recent traversing across the West End Bridge, something took my attention away from this golden view. As I crossed, I saw a man I guessed to be in his late 60s or early 70s on the bridge with his

white T-shirt off and tucked into the front waist of his blue shorts. His white skin was now the color of his sunwashed, dark tan leather belt. But what paused my reverent landscape gazing was that, while he was clearly enjoying his walk across a long bridge on a hot day, he was also an older gentleman. His pectoral muscles were strong but sagging and, while he was on the thin side, he had a slightly rounded belly with what appeared to be a large scar from the bottom of his center rib cage down to the top of his shorts. When I saw this older man with his tan, sagging, scarred, older body, I thought, “Put your shirt back on bro, no one wants to see that.” Then I immodestly thought, “Wow Tereneh, how incredibly messed up and fucked up of you to think that way.” But

I am being 100% honest, that is what I thought to myself. I can point to how we in America are conditioned to look and celebrate youthful bodies, but that is just an excuse. So I had to pause and really think and unlearn some ageist, ableist mess inside of me. As we are entering summer, we will be seeing more of each other, especially in the summer of the vaccinated as others re-enter social life. With this in mind, I spent the next bit of time reframing my ageist, ableist reaction to one of forgiveness, appreciation, and celebration. I challenged myself and changed my tune as I wondered if the era of body positivity and celebration extends to all of us regardless of age, ability, color, and size. Is there an age limit to body celebration, and if so, why? Can only

people in their 20 to 30s love their cellulite and show it off in short shorts? If so, that is ageism and not real celebration or liberation. As we love big titties and ass, can we also love small tits and flat butts? Or are we still picking what bodies we love? If so, in the end, we are no better than the Edwardian Gibson Girl and their pigeon-shape making corsets, if we are selecting the perfect Hot Girl Summer bodies. Throughout history, every era has had their “Perfect Summer Body” types, often only women and femmes bodies, which are being judged, labeled, and, if not valued, then most often on display. The point I hope for body positivity is, “If you have a body in any form, love it and be positive about it.” I say this to myself as I look in the CONTINUES ON PG. 10

AS WE LOVE BIG TITTIES AND ASS, CAN WE ALSO LOVE SMALL TITS AND FLAT BUTTS? My beautiful but very flat walks along the Aegean Sea in the morning were no match for real kabobs, tahini sauce, curry yogurts, pides, pomegranate syrup, Turkish baked-good weekend lockdowns, and evening curfews.

summers walking to ballet class as a kid, trying to negotiate how to avoid sexual and street harassment from men and boys of all ages. Starting around the age of 11, I would pull my hair back and put on my glasses … that helped, somewhat. Learning how to balance growing into a woman, the desire to perform on stage without being consumed without consent on the street. Knowing I need that self possession, confidence in my dance training, and in life. How to not let it be stripped away on the street by those strangers? I still struggle with this, to be honest. I say this as I replay, in my mind’s eye, the man walking across the West End bridge, enjoying himself and his body as he walked in one of the most beautiful places in America on a hot day. So I say to him, to you, to me, to all of us: You have a body, this body has kept you alive in this most challenging of times, and we are still here. This is our perfect summer body because it exists here and now, the summer of 2021. Celebrate, rejoice, and reverently, respectfully enjoy the view.

UBBLE TEA IS A DRINK for any

season, but as Pittsburgh stretches into its hottest months, a cup of the sweet, colorful beverage is more refreshing than ever. Pittsburgh has a wide array of bubble tea options, some of which are solely bubble tea establishments while others are housed on restaurant menus. Tsaocaa is a recent arrival on the scene, and the Chinese chain offers several unique twists to bubble tea that make it a welcome addition to the local landscape. Tsaocaa first opened in China in 2016, with its first U.S. location opening in Philadelphia in 2018. The Pittsburgh location opened in June 2020 on Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill next door to Everyday Noodles. The minimalist storefront has wall-to-wall windows that give the space a large, open feeling. The soft lighting and beige interior were designed to fit the company’s aesthetic across its stores, and the menu gives a new, thoughtful spin on the now classic drink. Bubble tea began in Taiwan in the ’80s and is traditionally made with powdered milk, but Tsaocaa makes theirs with fresh ingredients. As their website, which calls the company Tsaocha, states, “It seems that there is a Holy Land of milk tea in the heart of the founder, and the team is on the pilgrimage road.” The website also highlights that僼蓞(cháo chá), the name of the company in Chinese, contains 僼, meaning pilgrimage, with the second character,蓞, meaning tea. I made my pilgrimage to Tsaocaa via bus to pick up an order I’d placed online.

In addition to a variety of menu categories including fresh-brewed tea, fruit tea, milk swirl, milk bubble tea, and (nonalcoholic) mojitos, the store also sells desserts such as macarons and egg waffles, a popular Hong Kongese treat. For the drinks, customization options abound. You can select the amount of ice you prefer, or choose the degree of heat if you’d like a warmer beverage. You can also choose the sweetness level: 0-100%, for those with a sweet tooth. They also offer a variety of toppings, such as brown sugar jelly, mango boba, crystal pearl, purple rice, and red bean. My order was ready several minutes before the pick-up time, so I didn’t have

to wait once I arrived. My two drinks came in a plastic bag with a middle partition that kept the drinks upright to avoid spillage, which was helpful when I took the drinks on the bus back to my apartment. The cups themselves seem designed for patrons on the go, with special holes in the lid that can reseal conveniently. The first was the lychee mojito with 30% sugar and mango boba. The drink was carbonated, giving it a sharp, fizzy surprise on the first sip as the lime and mint came through powerfully. The lychee was slightly more subtle and complemented the sweetness and lime surprisingly well. With each sip, I

worried the flavors might separate and become dissonant, but they stayed woven sweetly together to create an unexpectedly refreshing drink that was a fun, bubblegum pink color with mint leaves, thin slices of lime, and two lychee halves floating in the liquid. I enjoyed the drink so much I didn’t realize the mango boba were missing until I was halfway back to my apartment, but the lychees made up for the lack of boba as I neared the bottom of the cup. My second drink was the jasmine green tea with 30% sugar and herb jelly. On the first sip, this drink was more bitter, with cheese milk foam floating

on the top mixing with the slightly bitter tea. According to U.S. Tsaocaa brand holder Eddie Zheng, the cheese milk foam is made with cheese powder, rose sea salt, and cream. When it remained separate from the tea, the textures and mouthfeel felt dissonant, with the taste of the tea accompanied by unusual thickness from the cream. But with a slight stir and some time to mix, the mild sweetness of the cream melded with the tea to create a smoother

sweetness throughout. The herb jelly didn’t have a strong flavor to it, but the texture — slightly softer than silken tofu and less firm than Jell-O — added a cool and refreshing element to the drink that complemented the milky liquid. Sipping Tsaocaa’s bubble tea made me feel like I was back in Shanghai during a sweltering summer, and I’m eager to try more of their many menu options as Pittsburgh’s summer continues to heat up.

SOULSHOWMIKE’S ALBUM PICKS #KingButch and #SummerGrooves BY MIKE CANTON // CPCONTRIBUTORS@PGHCITYPAPER.COM

S

OMETIMES MUSIC RELEASES hit my radar a little later than they should. One reason is that terrestrial

radio follows FCC permissible-language policies, and a new album might only have a few initial singles sanitized for the delicate ear. #KingButch by Butcher Brown is now fully ready, and was worth the wait. Pittsburghers may have seen Butcher Brown at The Rex and, more recently, at the August Wilson African American Cultural Center. They are a Richmond-based fusion quintet. Drummer Corey Fonville is a standout member of the group, but everyone is tight. Saxophonist/trumpeter/MC Marcus “Tennishu” Tenney is front and center. Butcher Brown’s discography includes both studio and live work. #KingButch, the band’s first major-label release (Concord) is a dive into the melding of jazz and hip-hop. There’s plenty with and without to satisfy everyone’s taste. Old schoolers, take note: Butcher covers “Tidal Wave” by Ronnie Laws.

me to participate in this week’s Summer Guide, offering up some of my favorite tracks for the season. Why, yes! WYEP, my home base, has posted songlists for summer cruisin’ from time to time, and here’s my chance to offer an R&B perspective. The one caveat is that I will live in the Temple Of My Familiar. Let there be tempo, and let there be groove: • “Movin’” by Brass Construction (the intro horn blast is only the beginning) • “Be Thankful For What You’ve Got” by William DeVaughn (the unlikely anthem) • “Watching You” by Slave (Stevie Arrington doing his best sexy warble) • “All Day Music” by War (imagery, imagery)

Mike Canton is the longtime host and producer of The Soul Show on WYEP 91.3FM. He recently launched a syndicated edition of the program, now airing in three markets. Both are produced in his Electric Basement Studios. Canton is also a Pittsburgh-area voice artist

WESTERN PENNSYLVANIA BUY FRESH, BUY LOCAL GUIDE 2021

'SFTI&BUJOHGPS4VNNFS We are lucky to live in a place that can provide nutritious, locally grown food. Buying farm fresh products and preparing them at home is a healthy alternative to eating preservatives. The key to eating local is to make a commitment to eat seasonally. Eat greens, asparagus, berries in spring. You can then progress to tomatoes, corn, zucchini, melons throughout the summer. Move on to autumn crops, such as potatoes, more greens, squash in the fall. Summer is the time to preserve the harvest. A simple Internet search will provide direction and know-how for canning, fermenting, drying and freezing your favorite summer produce. Buy a few extra quarts of blueberries each week and freeze them. You will be rewarded in mid-winter when you’re mixing your local food smoothies. The farm stands and stores, farmers markets and retail stores that sell these local products are located throughout Allegheny County. Farmers Markets typically run once a week for about four hours at a time. Ask your favorite restaurant if they buy from local farms. If you notice specials that contain seasonal ingredients, they are most likely getting these from a local producer. Lastly, start a garden and grow your own food! The easiest plants and some of the most delicious are tomatoes and basil. You will be rewarded with the freshest tasting ingredients for many summer dishes.
