Quantum Theatre brings its own "Odyssey" to Schenley Park - Quantum Theatre had planned to produce "An Odyssey" by Jay Ball, but the production was delayed a year by Covid-19. Now portions of the play and the original poem "The Odyssey" are part of a scavenger hunt-like hike through Schenley Park. Participants can find kiosks throughout the park that have QR codes that link to passages from both works. The hike starts at Panther Hollow Lake and if you are lucky, and looking up from your phone, you will see a blue heron fly by. Find out more about what's happening in the East End by picking up Print at one of our retailers.

On the first weekend 13.950 voters hand delivered their ballots to the elections division's satellite sites including a site that was one weekend-only at the Homewood Campus of the Community College of Allegheny County. The Homewood site was a street party with music, booths and even a big screen for the Steelers game.
