07/11/2013 - 5:30pm - 8:00pm
If you are interested in meeting people from all over the world in Pittsburgh and learning more about different cultures, join us on Thursday, July 11, from 5:30-8:00 pm at AVA Lounge for the GlobalPittsburgh First Thursdays international happy hour. Bring your friends, family and colleagues or come alone - you will make new friends!
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. Everyone is welcome!
AVA Lounge is located at 126 S Highland Avenue in East Liberty - two doors down from Abay restaurant.
This will be our last First Thursdays at AVA Lounge, which will be closing and moving to a new location. We thank them for hosting our events for almost a year. We are excited about the changes coming for First Thursdays, including a move to the Strip District in August, when we will celebrate the beginning of our third year. Watch for updates!
In July, our partner is Quantum Theater.
Quantum creates adventurous productions of contemporary plays from around the world or stages updated classics in innovative performance sites all over the city, and frequently makes original work.
Quantum's work has been recently featured in American Theatre Magazine and Stage Directions Magazine.
Quantum Theater invites GlobalPittsburgh friends to their production of Mnemonic which will be performed on that night at 8:00 pm at Quantum at 215 N. Highland Avenue, just a few blocks away from AVA, and giving a $10 discount for the July 11 performance only.
A man alone in his apartment searches for clues to explain the disappearance of his girlfriend. Place and memory collide while stories older than the millennium connect us to each other and to those who came before. Mnemonic, with its ground-breaking performance and production styles, constantly breaks apart and reforms itself, much like memory itself. The play examines our understanding of time, our capacity to interpret history, and our attempts to retell the past.
Quantum's international cast includes Malcolm Tulip, Carolina Loyola-Garcia, Ken Bolden, Patrick Jordan, Anand Nagraj, Katya Stepanov, and Antonio Marziale.
Order Tickets: Online
