Event Location: 2535 Mission Street, downstairs apt in Pittsburgh
Event TIME Details: select Wednesday evenings
Directions: My apartment looks like it is wooden from Mission Street, but if you look at the side of it, you will see it is made of brick. You can park at the binding company lot across the screen, as it is only open until 6PM, or anywhere on the street where there is space. To reach my place, walk down the wooden stairs from Mission Street. My door is down the stairs on the right, as soon as you reach the landing.
If you are coming from the South Side flats (East Carson St) , just turn up the hill onto 18th Street, and follow 18th street up the hill until you reach Mission Street bridge. Turn left onto Mission Street. My place is a few blocks down on the left.
If you are coming from the south or from Mt. Washington, it may be easier for you to go through Arlington instead of East Carston Street and the South Side flats. When you come out of the Liberty tunnel, make a right. You will then have to go down the hill to the left toward East Carson Street or up the hill to the right toward Arlington. If you go down to East Carson, make a right onto East Carson and continue on East Carson Street until you reach 18th Street. If you turn up toward Arlington, you will already be on Arlington Road. Just stay on it until you reach 18th Street, and turn left onto 18th street. Mission Street Bridge is a ways down the hill on the right. When you get to it, turn right onto it. My place is a few blocks down on the left.
If you are taking the bus, you can catch either the 51C from downtown or the 54 from Oakland. Take the stop at 18th and Mission street, then take Mission street to my place at 2535 Mission St.
