Update Sept. 26: Wednesday’s event, Kayak with Cops, was cancelled due to water conditions, per Venture Outdoors.

It’s officially fall, and the last outdoor events of the year are in full swing.

This week, kayak with cops, search the North Side, and commemorate the Treaty of Fort Pitt, the first treaty between the U.S. and any American Indian nation. If you want some indoor fun, there’s networking, an all-Jay-Z night, and memorable meals at Savor Pittsburgh.
