“Gen X Pittsburgh: The Beehive and the ’90s Scene"

The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle invites you to join the Chronicle Book Club for its Dec. 17 discussion of Senior Staff Writer David Rullo’s new book, “Gen X Pittsburgh: The Beehive and the ’90s Scene.” The discussion will take place in person at noon at the JCC in Squirrel Hill. A Zoom link will also be available.

About the book: “Beginning in the early 1990s, Pittsburgh’s South Side neighborhood began to transform from the post-industrial morass it had been suffering for the last few decades. Artists began to rent empty apartments, what were once shot-and-a-beer bars became hip dive bars and entrepreneurs found inexpensive real estate to follow their visions. It was in this landscape that the Beehive Coffeehouse began to attract a new 90s alternative crowd. The South Side Beehive…was where the night often began, and weekends ended.”

Come meet the author and hear more about this thoroughly engaging story!

Your Hosts:
David Rullo, Chronicle senior staff writer
Toby Tabachnick, editor of the Chronicle
