BLENd for OBAMa is not a political event. It’s celebrating the President of the United States, Black History Month and the cultural change taking place in Pittsburgh and across this great nation of ours.
A Totally Eco-Conscious Global Diversity “Coming Together” Event Saturday February 28, 2009 at 10pm at the Red Room & 2 Red Lounge, 134 S Highland Ave (Corner of Centre and S. Highland). (412)362-5800 www.redroomcafe.net
Red Room sits on South Highland Avenue and offers an upscale glamorous dining experience. With deep tomato red painted walls an oak bar, tables seated near the plate-glass storefront windows, leather sofas and armchairs, clustered around tables flickering with candlelight, all lending to an ambience of lavish comfort. Adjacent on Centre Avenue is the swanky 2 Red Lounge. The high-end cocktails are a good match for the industrial-chic décor, luxurious sofas, intimate semi-circle booths and handsome bar. Both are elegant but not intimidating…a perfect BLENding.
Mingle with leaders from local government, their staff and the mayoral candidates. They are not here to campaign but to get to know you and your needs. Meet the members of Pittsburgh’s green, global, cultural and nonprofit organizations find out what you can do to make Pittsburgh a better place for each other and the future generations.
