Nakama will be at Northland tomorrow, too, with sushi, egg rolls, noodle dishes, and fried rice so good you’ll want a second one to take home for the next day!

The food trucks are located in the upper parking lot.

    Contact: Dee Gentile   724-935-3553   deeandcats@aol.com
   

This month our Mystery Lovers Group will be reading Dangerous Davie: the Last Detective by Leslie Thomas. Dangerous Davies earned the nickname the last detective not because there are no others like him, but because he is, in nearly every instance, the last boy picked for the team. With little actual work to occupy him, Dange has plenty of time to pick through the cases that everybody else has forgotten. When he stumbles across a piece of ancient history, it looks like the perfect way to keep him out of the real coppers' way.

If you enjoy reading and discussing good mysteries, join us each month. No registration is required.

Bring a brown bag lunch, and we'll provide the beverages. If you like reading and sharing your opinions and comments on books with others in an informal setting, you’ll enjoy our monthly book discussion group where we always have some lively conversations.

In some European countries, Christmas just isn’t complete without its traditional market. Come learn about the celebrations, culinary traditions, folklore and entertainment of markets in Munich, Prague, Vienna, Milan, and Strasbourg.

MAUDIE

A Drama from Canada (115 min)

An unsentimental but emotional film about Maud who is an arthritic black sheep of her family. In order to escape, from her politely awful family, she answers the add of a local fisherman for a housekeeper. Maud finds out that he is a deeply ornery fish peddler who lives in a two room shack. She is constantly berated by the fish peddlar as well as the rest of the town. However this doesn’t matter for she only sees the happy side of things. As she becomes more arthritic, she is happier. She starts taking up painting. Her painting is good and starts to get noticed, but will her personality rub off on the ornery fish peddlar.

This is less a story of a real life artist than the story of a real-life relationship gradually overwhelmed by beauty. Based upon a true story.

No reservation required. Refreshments will be served.

   6:30 PM  -  8:30 PM Busting the Myth About College Admission and Preparations  
    Contact: Wontaek Yoo   412-701-1011   cla@clacenter.com
   

This is a seminar for any students and parents thinking about going to a college, presented by Complete Learning Academy.  There is much myth surrounding the college admissions and preparations. CLA hopes to show why some commonly held notions are myths and what they need to do. The myths to be discussed include, but are not limited to,

  1. SAT/ACT score is the most important thing
  2. The cumulative GPA is the only thing that matters from the High School Transcript
  3. Grades after you sent your application does not matter
  4. You can simply apply as undecided and not worry about what you will major.
  5. SAT/ACT is unrelated to what you study in school
  6. SAT Subject Tests are only for very special schools.
  7. Month or two is enough to prepare for SAT/ACT/AP Exams/SAT Subject Tests.
  8. 7th grade is too young to worry about college

Any specific question received in advance will be given special attention during the seminar presentation. Please send any question you may have to Complete Learning Academy via email at cla@clacenter.com or by phone at 412-701-1011. Korean service is available.

Try the haluski (cabbage and noodles) for an amazing hearty lunch. The stuffed cabbage are delicious, too! Take home some pierogi dozens for the holiday season. Frozen packages include the popular potato and cheese, potato and onion, beef, cabbage, sauerkraut, potato and cheddar and much more.

If you are enticed by such areas of inquiry and are interested in “alternative” ways, rather than conventional ways, of looking at the world, you may be interested in joining our newest book discussion group.
