Byham Hosts ‘Asere! A fiesta Cubana’; Biddle’s Escape in Wilkinsburg features Coffee,Tea, and Food (Tues., 2/5/19)

1) Looking for some hot music to heat things up? Then look no further than Asere! A fiesta Cubana featuring musicians and dancers of the Havana Cuba All-Stars. The show is a celebration of the diverse and joyous music and dance styles of Cuba. They  will play “rhythms and melodies from the cha cha to the rumba, from “Son Cubano” style to the salsa” interpreted through a fresh approach to their heritage. 7:30 p.m. Byham Theater, 101 6th St., Cultural District. (RH)

2) Biddle’s Escape, on Biddle Avenue between Regent Square and Wilkinsburg has a great selection of coffee drinks, teas, and sweet treats. One that has been getting a lot of “buzz” is the Hungarian Szegedi Kave, a Hungarian style espresso with steamed half-and-half, vanilla sugar, Szeged cinnamon, and whipped cream. Another cool thing is their patio where on a warm day you can sit beneath the trees and carved wood faces and enjoy the shade. As you may remember from local history and a movie titled Mrs. Soffel, the Biddle brothers escaped from the Allegheny County jail with the aid of Mrs. Soffel (the warden’s wife who was in love with one of the brothers) in 1902. 401 Biddle Ave., Regent Square/Wilkinsburg.
