Bayardstown Reunion

Bayardstown, an unofficial mini-neighborhood in the Strip District, was once home to a child-gang called the Bayardstown Boys, known as the "Rats." More than a century after its reign ended, a summer social club in the 3000 block of Penn Avenue paid homage to the neighborhood's history with a mural of a giant rat as a backdrop for the stage. That stage was put to good use. Weekly gatherings at Bayardstown from 2013-2016 hosted some of Pittsburgh's finest folk/country/acoustic musicians performing for club members chowing down on food-truck fare or just sitting by the campfire. One of the most frequent performers, Paul Luc, aims to recapture the magic with the Bayardstown Reunion at the Pittsburgh Food Truck Park. The details are pretty much the same as a night at Bayardstown in its heyday: music, beer, food, good times. Bonus fact: the Bayardstown Boys reportedly used to skate out onto a Allegheny River to brawl with a rival North Side gang, a story that's unconfirmed and has nothing to do with this show, but is awesome.
