Join us for the next GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays international happy hour at AVA Lounge in East Liberty on Thursday, Feb. 7 from 5:30-8:00 p.m. (or later).

This month we will be featuring Brazil so get ready for some fun! We are partnering with the Women and Girls Foundation (WGF) for this event. As you read this, their CEO, Heather Arnet is in Brazil interviewing amazing Brazilian women about their first woman president and about their economic and social policies that support female leadership, for a one-hour documentary being produced by WGF, titled "Madame Presidenta: Why not U.S." This documentary will be aired on WQED multimedia. 

Please join us to meet WGF members, see the trailer for the film and enjoy some complimentary appetizers. Catering will be provided by Chicken Latino, with vegetarian selections, too! Bring your friends! Meet our visiting global delegations and mingle with many of the region's international entrepreneurs and innovators.

GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays is a regular monthly night of networking and socializing with different themes and different activities - but always with an international flavor - on the first Thursday of every month. It's an evening of friends, interesting conversation and good spirits with an international flair.

AVA Lounge is located at 126 S. Highland Avenue in East Liberty.

Admission is FREE for paid GlobalPittsburgh members. Admission is $5 at the door for everyone else. Membership information will be available at the event, but you may also join GlobalPittsburgh now at and get in free on the night of the event.
