Bowling alley change


Due to league bowling, and the previous alley changing their hours we needed to try a new home for Dinner & Bowling.



If you use the PortAuthority, and are unable to get to the Caste Village Shopping center please post in the Facebook group and attempts will be made to accomodate getting you to and from the shopping center.

The Burgh Bears

Who Are The Burgh Bears?


The Burgh Bears are a non-profit social group for bears and their admirers, created to both promote social/recreational activities for its members, as well as charitable fundraising for the local community. We are based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but have members from many surrounding states, and our electronic membership is worldwide.

We think that having a local bear club is important. While the whole bear movement has grown enormously over the past decade, there are still many gay men who do not see themselves or their attractions reflected in the general public’s opinion of attractiveness. Bear clubs provide an alternative space, support structure, and friendship for these men.
