SpacePlace Exhibit at Carnegie Science Center (CPs Mon., 2/10/14)

1) SpacePlace is a cool exhibit at the Carnegie Science Center. It simulates what it feels like to be an astronaut through some great hands-on experiences: Zero-G Climbers—strap into climbing gear and scale a zero-gravity climbing wall while completing a simple task; Micro-G Simulator—complete real-life astronaut training tasks; International Space Station Modules—experience a two-story Space Station that helps visitors understand life in space; Living & Working in Space Wall—view space-travel artifacts, even a flight suit, and enjoy the interactive ‘Ask the Astronaut,’ exhibit with answers from NASA astronauts; Rocket Launch and Parachute Drop—design a rocket, launch it, and drop payload parachutes; and Star Projector—see the Zeiss Model II Star Projector used at the old Buhl Planetarium (1939-1991). 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. One Allegheny Ave., North Shore.

2) Savoy Restaurant’s Savoy Jazz Mondays continues tonight with the Roger Humphries Trio featuring vocalist Sandy Dowe. 6 – 10 p.m. No cover. 2623 Penn Ave., Strip District.

3) The Balcony Big Band is hitting only high notes in a Monday night performance at Jergel’s Rhythm Grille. 8 p.m. No cover. 285 Northgate Dr., Warrendale.

4)  Seven Springs Mountain Resort is taking a cue from the Pittsburgh Pirates’ all-you-can-eat seats and is offering a Munchy Mondays special. For $45, you get a night skiing/snowboarding pass (4 p.m. – close) and an all-you-can-eat voucher (5 – 8 p.m.)  at the First Tracks café for hot dogs, French fries, mac and cheese, popcorn, cheese pizza slices, and fountain drinks. 777 Waterwheel Dr., Seven Springs.
