Doors Open Pittsburgh Tour
We all know and love the Pittsburgh skyline, but you can explore the buildings up close, and then learn about their unique architecture with a tour from Doors Open Pittsburgh. Beginning at the Koppers Building, this tour specializes in rooftops and views. Face masks are required. 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m., or 7 p.m. 436 Seventh Ave., Downtown. $30. doorsopenpgh.org

Sun., Aug. 2
Poetry Workshop
Unlike some activities, writing is easy to do at home in quarantine (well, at least easy to try). White Whale Bookstore will host a virtual workshop on writing "deceptively complicated" prose poetry. The class, which will take place over Zoom, will be taught by poet S. Brook Corfman. 1-4 p.m. whitewhalebookstore.com/workshops


Mon., Aug. 3
Fermentation Workshop
Summer is a great time for produce, but then you suddenly have more than you know what to do with. Learn to preserve veggies with a virtual fermentation workshop from Community Cultures. The workshop, which continues every Monday in August, is pay-what-you-can, with proceeds benefiting Black-led organizations. 7 p.m. $20 suggested donation. instagram.com/communitycultures
