It’s finally almost summer — for real.

As the solstice approaches, these events will have you basking in the summer vibes, whether that’s at the Pride Parade, at the Arts Festival, or at a free beer tasting.

Also this week: Become an Incline member to join us for an exclusive members-only tour at Threadbare Cider House and Meadery, featuring cider samples and plenty of fascinating Pittsburgh history.

This weekend, plan to hang out with Dad for Father’s Day. We’ve got plenty of ideas for things to do with Dad over the weekend, from spear-throwing (seriously) to canon demos to house tours.
