Cool Picks brings you the best in Pittsburgh entertainment every day! 

1) Gwar can be described as a very heavy metal band with elaborate horror and science fiction costumes, masks, and props. Their songs are often composed of obscene lyrics. Their stage performances contain humorous politically and morally deficient themes and acts.  Their album titles are interesting as well: Scumdogs of the Universe, This Toilet Earth,  We Kill Everything, Lust in Space. The previous description will either totally repel you or totally excite you. If you are in the excited part of the audience, you can catch Gwar with fellow metallurgists DevilDriver, Cancer Bats, Legacy of Disorder, at Mr.Smalls Funhouse. 7:30 p.m. 400 Lincoln Ave., Millvale.

2) On a lighter note, the Steelers six Super Bowl trophies are on display at the Heinz History Center through November 30th. They are exhibited in association with the NFL Gridiron Glory, which features over 200 football artifacts from the Pro Football Hall of Fame (Gridiron Glory runs through January 6th). 10 a.m – 5 p.m., 1212 Smallman St., Strip District.

3) From 12-12:30 p.m. at the Carnegie Science Center is a hands on seminar, Taste the Rainbow, to teach families and young learners to prepare more nutritious family meals using colorful fruits and vegetables. The program demonstrates which parts of the various fruits and vegetables are edible and what can be prepared with them. “Kitchen Theater” at the Carnegie Science Center, North Shore.

4) The Balcony Big Band (started at the notable Balcony Restaurant on Walnut Street) plays Jergel’s Rhythm Grille. 8 p.m. No cover. 103 Slade Lane, Warrendale.
