Apples & Honey Threadbare Cider House & Meadery, threadbarecider.com There is nothing quite like that combination of sweet richness and crisp tartness to start the fall drinking season, and with Pittsburgh-grown apples and mead crafted from local honey, the new Apples & Honey cider from Threadbare is a great 7.5% ABV addition to autumn.

Grierson’s Ginger Arsenal Cider House, arsenalciderhouse.com A new season is a time to punch up the flavors, and Grierson’s Ginger Apple from Arsenal Cider House does just that by infusing fresh ginger root into their hard cider. Named after a union general, Grierson’s Ginger is full-bodied, semisweet, and packs a punch at 8.5% ABV.

Cranberry Cider King View Mead, kingviewmead.com Thanksgiving is still a couple months away, but cranberries aren’t hard to find at King View Mead in Mt. Lebanon. The meadery’s Cranberry Cider is made from apples grown on Trax Farm and fresh cranberries. A refreshing 6.8% ABV.

Stonewall Standard Stonewall Cider House and Meadery, facebook.com/stonewallciderhouse Sometimes a not-too-sweet and crisp cider is perfect for a sunny fall day, and the flagship cider from Stonewall Cider House and Meadery in Verona is just the ticket. This 5% ABV cider is highly drinkable and just a bit earthy.

2019 Orchard Blend After the Fall Cider, afterthefallcider.com Love apple pie? Of course you do.

Made from Harry Masters Jersey, Chisel Jersey, and Liberty apples, this bright and deep cider clocks in at 9% ABV.

LEAF PEEPIN’ BY RYAN DETO RYANDETO@PGHCITYPAPER.COM

Hike The Pittsburgh Botanic Garden in Western Allegheny County is a great place to hike among the leaves.

Drive Located at the edge of the city, Allegheny River Boulevard provides a laid-back cruise from Highland Park to Oakmont, hugging the river and offering great views of trees and changing leaves. Take the cobblestone road section in Oakmont to slow down and take in the colors. Start at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Allegheny River Boulevard in Highland Park.

VEGAN GOODIES BY DANI JANAE DANIJANAE@PGHCITYPAPER.COM

One of the best parts of fall is the baked goods. With spices like cinnamon, clove, and nutmeg, fall has some of the best flavors of the year. These four shops have fall menus with awesome vegan goodies for the season.

Sweet Alchemy Bakeshop instagram.com/sweetalchemybakeshop This shop is currently offering donuts in maple twists and pumpkin streusel to satisfy all your toasty fall needs. In addition to favorites like raspberry and strawberry pop tarts, you will soon find autumn flavors in the mix. Be on the lookout for caramel apple, pumpkin spice, pumpkin maple pecan, and more.

Pittsburgh Juice Company pittsburghjuicecompany.com Not only will you find an ultra creamy pumpkin “mylk” made with cashew milk, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and clove, but you can also find a pumpkin chzcake, made with a cashew, almond, and pecan crust, with dates, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla.

B52 b52pgh.com This popular vegan Mediterranean spot’s maple pecan cookie has all the fall flavors you could want in one bite. These are available year round, but there’s just something about a warm, gooey, cinnamon roll that screams fall. B52’s have a twist: they are made with croissant dough.

“Overcoming addiction is a challenge. Finding quality care shouldn’t be”.

Right Track Addiction Services at the Forefront of Pittsburgh’s Addiction Care hile opioid dependence is a major issue in Pittsburgh, and has only gotten worse as Fentanyl increases overdose rates, most people can’t simply walk away from it. And with the stresses and demands of the pandemic wearing on everyone, those with addiction issues have had a particularly rough time. Fortunately, Right Track Addiction Services has been meeting these challenges with patients all along. At the forefront of Pittsburgh’s opiate recovery, Right Track is an outpatient center with plenty of Covid-safe options like tele-health and video conferencing. Their flexibility and willingness to work with peoples busy schedules are things their current patients really love. Right Track uses a combination of Suboxone, medical marijuana, and tapering to help patients get clean. Their approach works by reducing cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and the physical pain that has caused some people to become addicted to prescription painkillers. This reduction in physical symptoms helps with mental clarity and creates room for an individual to work on the mental and emotional aspects of recovery needed to achieve sustained clean time. When a solid foundation is established, patients can begin tapering off of the medication with a clear mind and a higher chance of success. Right Track is one of the only programs in Pittsburgh that has been helping people get completely off of Suboxone. Right Track understands that recovery is a challenging process and they strive to give their patients the best chance for success. There are a few things that set Right Track apart from many of the treatment centers in the Pittsburgh area:

• Highly flexible appointment scheduling • A staff that has firsthand experience with addiction • Highly individualized recovery plans that fits the best needs of the patient • 7 day a week staff availability • Patient involvement in recovery plan decision making • Non-judgmental atmosphere These are among the reasons why Right Track has become a leader in the field in the Pittsburgh area. Behind Dr. Norman Frey, with over 30 years as a practicing doctor, and Matt Workman, who has experience running educational groups on addiction at UPMC, Right Track brings a wealth of experience and firsthand care to treatment. Patients have noticed, and have seen the results and changes in their life. “When I started my journey here I was nervous and did not know what to expect,” A.S. said. “Matt and the Doctor are thorough, caring and go out of their way to help and support you. They also helped me to taper down off of Suboxone completely! Which is something I haven’t seen anywhere else...I am 2.5 years sober and could NEVER have done this without them!” Prioritizing wellness over profits, Right Track is here to help no matter where you are in your journey. As A.F. Said, “This place has been amazing since Day 1 for me. The day I called, they had me scheduled to speak with a doctor THAT day. They listened to my situation and needs without judgement. Matt is fantastic with communication and I do feel cared for by him and Dr. Frey.”

Silence of the Lambs (1991) This movie was filmed in various Pittsburgh locations, including the Carnegie Museums. Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall served as the movie’s Memphis Town Hall, where the antagonist famously escapes. Various other scenes were also shot in Pennsylvania, including serial killer Buffalo Bill’s home in Perryopolis and the funeral home in McKeesport.

Creepshow (1982) Directed by Carnegie Mellon University alum George A. Romero, this horror comedy was filmed in local spots including CMU’s campus, a yard in Shadyside, and an estate in Fox Chapel. Romero filmed one scene in “The Crate” segment in the backyard of his former home in Shadyside.

Dawn of the Dead (1978) Another Romero film includes locations filmed inside the WPGHTV station and Harold W. Brown Memorial Field, aka the former Pittsburgh-Monroeville Airport. Most of this classic zombie horror was filmed inside the Monroeville Mall, where our heroes attempt, not always successfully, to fight off killer hoards of zombies.

Two Evil Eyes (1990) This production consists of two films based on works by Edgar Allan Poe, and the tales of disembodied souls. Filming locations include the Le Mardi Gras bar in Shadyside and Market Square in Downtown. In “The Facts in the Case of Mr. Valdemar” segment, the home used for filming is on Fox Chapel Road in the Pittsburgh suburbs.

CURTAIN UP! Live Performance returns at PICT Classic Theatre t’s been 18 months since the lights went out in theaters nationwide as the industry paused for the COVID-19 pandemic. But this Fall, the wait is over. PICT Classic Theatre, one of Pittsburgh’s finest professional theater companies, announced last week that they are returning to live, in-person performances at WQED Studios this October – just in time to celebrate their 25th Anniversary Season. Located in Oakland, PICT has cultivated a reputation for excellence in both classic and Irish productions while showcasing the rich talent of Pittsburgh artists. This season they’ll present three full productions and launch a new, free staged reading series. “It’s a season that celebrates where we’ve been and looks forward to where we are going over the next 25 years,” says Artistic and Executive Director Alan Stanford. “Rather than solely reflecting on the past, we want to focus our attention on the future.” After the critically acclaimed, award-winning production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in February 2020, PICT first performance back will be another delightful comedy: William Shakespeare’s As You Like It. A show about love in all its aspects, this production takes the stage at the Fred Rogers Studio at WQED October 30-November 2022. Continuing its tradition of excellence Irish theatre, PICT will present a limited run of Samuel Beckett’s Endgame February 12-26, 2022. At once wickedly funny and startlingly poignant, Endgame is a story of four individuals grappling with the reality of “ending” - of life, of time, and what we find at the conclusion. This production reunites PICT resident company members Martin Giles, James FitzGerald, Karen Baum, and Ken Bolden under the direction of Alan Stanford. The season closes with a modern classic, Mart Crowley’s The Boys in the Band. Considered one of the most influential plays in the LGBTQIA+ canon, this timely piece focuses on a group of seven friends as they gather for a raucous birthday party in 1968 Manhattan. Flowing drinks and uninvited guests cause tensions to rise and deeply hidden truths to be revealed. This production welcomes

multi-faceted artist Monteze Freeland, co-Artistic Director of City Theatre, to direct and performs June 18-July 9, 2022. PICT will also launch a new series of staged readings this year entitled the Expand the Canon Series. This program of free staged readings will focus on the plays, perspectives and stories of women and People of Color in the classic canon – two groups usually marginalized in traditional classic work. Curated by Associate Producer Sharon McCune, this new program will present six different staged readings for free to the public at Rodef Shalom throughout the season beginning in November. Individual titles will be announced October 1. PICT will be requiring proof of vaccination and masking for each performance in the 2021-2022 season. Their commitment to safety has been prominent through the pandemic, being the first theatre to be approved for in-person production by Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers, in September 2020 for their radio drama, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll. PICT was granted approval based on a collaborative and detailed 27-page safety proposal that was then shared with all other professional theatre companies in Pittsburgh. They were also invited to present their protocols nationally for AEA last summer, in a panel of producers that had successfully navigated pandemic restrictions. For the 2021-2022 season, PICT has three certified COVID Compliance Officers on staff ensuring the reopening is a safe, comfortable, and joyous experience for all. Subscriptions for the 25th Anniversary season run between $105-$125 and are available for purchase through the PICT website, picttheatre.org, or by phone at 412-561-6000. Single tickets will be available for purchase beginning October 1. Showtimes are Wednesday-Fridays at 7:30pm, Saturdays at 2pm and 7:30pm, and Sundays at 2pm. Student matinees will also be available at 10am on Tuesdays during each run and can be arranged through General Operations Manager Catherine Kolos at ckolos@picttheatre.org.
