Former Pittsburgh Steeler Lynn Swann and the crew had a great time at the NEED event featuring DJ Grandmaster Flash at the August Wilson Center. This week I visited the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in Downtown Pittsburgh, Galaxy Lounge and Entertainment Center in Homewood, CJ’s in the Strip District and Kenny’s Place in Uptown Pittsburgh.
