Allegheny County Music Fest w/Uprooted, Sun King Warriors, Jenn Wertz, Bill Deasy; Green Pepper Features Korean BBQ (Sun., 9/1/19)

1) The Annual Allegheny County Music Festival promises a balanced survey of local music. Headlining is Uprooted, with Michael Glabicki of Rusted Root and “Send Me on My Way” fame (8 p.m.). Openers include Jim Donovan & Sun King Warriors, Jenn Wertz, and Bill Deasy. This is the last concert at Hartwood Acres Park Amphitheater this year, so be sure to get in as much outdoor dancing as you can before autumn arrives. Music begins at 5 p.m. There is a $20 per car requested donation, which benefits children and youth served by the County’s Department of Human Services through the Allegheny County Music Festival Fund. 5 p.m. 4070 Middle Rd., Allison Park.

2) Don’t let the name fool you. Green Pepper serves much more than a single vegetable. In fact, this Korean restaurant has a very full menu. Its website describes “garlbee” (marinated beef ribs) as the “signature fine dining item in Korean cuisine,” and Green Pepper’s garlbee is no exception. Bring a date, and get the “sarm gyeob sarl,” which serves two people. If the BBQ-grilled Korean bacon, which you can hand-roll in lettuce, isn’t enough, the entree comes with fresh vegetables and soup. Most entrees hover around $15 with larger items, like the sarm gyeob sarl, costing more. BYOB or purchase alcohol, from Yuengling to wine to cold soju. For $5.61, BYOC (bring your own cake), and the restaurant will provide plates and silverware. You can also purchase slices of cake at Green Pepper from Sumi’s Cakery, another Squirrel Hill business. Screens playing KPop music videos offer something original in the way of background entertainment. Plus, two elegant, spacious rooms. This is more of a dinner spot, but it is open for lunch on weekends. 2020 Murray Ave., Squirrel Hill. (CM)
