Berlin International Group (BIG) presents PEACe LOVe & BLENd on Friday May 8, 2009 at 9pm at the Shadow Lounge and Blue Room 5972 Baum Blvd, Pittsburgh, PA 15206.
The Shadow Lounge is the most culturally diverse establishment the city of Pittsburgh has ever seen with the energy of the late 60’s and early 70’s. It’s edgier and artsy atmosphere is welcoming to everyone from the Metro-Urbanite to the Upscale/Inner city art critic and finally a place where college students can discover themselves. The Shadow Lounge is the perfect location to host the World’s Only Eco-Conscious Global Diversity Event Movement!
BLENd is the international face of diversity an image that transcends language and culture. BLENd is the World in a Green atmosphere that celebrates the uniqueness of our differences by allowing people to express their personalities while connecting with liked minded people from different cultural backgrounds. Groovy concept Huh?!
