Burghermunch Workshop – "Fifth Annual Vendor/Artisan Night"

Join us on Saturday, November 19th, when the Burghermunch's monthly workshop will be transformed into a multi-faceted evening of fun! We are very excited to hold the “Fifth Annual Vendor & Artisan Night” at the GLCC, beginning at 7:30pm. There will be 5 vendors attending, including: The ER Room (various wares and toys), James (chain mail), John/The Hungry Tiger (rope), Don and jade (candles), and Mark (floggers). In the past, this has been an excellent venue for early Christmas shopping, and a great opportunity to compare and shop.

We are also opening the night as a social event. We ask that you bring a light snack to share as we socialize, enjoy some quiet music and browse the vendor displays.

And finally, there will also be limited play space available. Please be aware that we are able to accommodate only 3 to 4 play stations. And, as we are unable to anticipate attendance, it may be difficult to find time to use equipment. Therefore, we request that if you wish to play, do so early, and be aware of the demand so as not to monopolize equipment. Also, if you do wish to play, please be prepared to sign a release, and bring a photo ID.

The Burghermunch workshop on Saturday, November 19th, will be held at the GLCC in Squirrel Hill (5808 Forward Ave.). Directions can be found at There is no reservation necessary for the workshop. A $3-$5 donation is collected on a pay-what-you-can basis, of which $1 goes directly to the GLCC for giving us space, and the rest going towards the cost of the newsletter, website, and some of the snacks.

We hope to see you on the 19th!
