Often touted as one of the best parties every year, the 17th annual Urban Garden Party Kickoff last Tuesday promised to deliver on this year's big bash to support The Mattress Factory art museum. Sarah Thomas, one of this year's chairpeople, said she was inspired by the magic of the Mattress Factory to become part of the fundraiser.
The Wild West will be the theme for this year's party June 20 (Dolly Parton impersonators, anyone?). Rumor has it there will be a mechanical bull, sure to be a hit with the 1,400 people expected to attend, along with live entertainment and food and drink from more than 40 of Pittsburgh's best restaurants and caterers.
