It’s not easy being new in town. Moving and setting up in a new place while attempting to navigate a new work environment can be very challenging and stressful. Pittsburgh, however, is a special and welcoming place to live, and we want to make sure that YOU, your family and other new residents in the region feel the same way.
This is why, building on the success of last year’s City-Wide Dine Around events that welcomed well over 200 newcomers at 20 dinners across the city and region, Vibrant Pittsburgh, the World Affairs Council of Pittsburgh, and NEXTpittsburgh are teaming up to hold the 2014 City-Wide Dine Around on Saturday, October 25. This will be an evening of welcome and connections for hundreds of our region’s newest residents.
The concept of Dine Around is not a new one. In fact, since 2010, Vibrant Pittsburgh has held Dine Arounds from time to time to bring together newcomers in the Pittsburgh region for a casual, stress free time of good company and good food. During the course of the Dine Arounds – which are typically held at a home of a welcoming host – we foster opportunities for people to network, connect and obtain information about resources in the region that are most important to them.
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm: Newcomers attend dinner at the home of a local host in or near their neighborhood
9:00 pm – 11:00 pm: All participants, hosts, and community leaders are welcome for a dessert reception,
