Stuff We Like

Soccer, summer fruit and sweet soul music

Warhol Rehang. In May, for its 20th anniversary, The Andy Warhol Museum totally reorganized. The top four floors are now a veritable Warhol bio, from juvenalia and long-unexhibited artifacts to hours of on-demand video and even an Exploding Plastic Inevitable room.

Elwin Green's Homewood Nation blog. Former Pittsburgh Post-Gazette scribe Elwin Green edits a blog that looks at Pittsburgh through the lens of one of its most critical, and critically underserved, communities. A recent example: a discussion of whether Barack Obama should have dropped by Homewood on his multiple visits to the region.

Pittsburgh Riverhounds. Still fired up after the World Cup? The city's pro soccer team has a couple of home games left at Highmark Stadium, on the South Side, before its season ends Sept. 6.

Clarion River Organics CSA. There's still time to reap the late-summer bounty of locally grown fruits and vegetables, but sign up soon.

Free New Yorker archive access. The venerable magazine has made its online archives temporarily free through this fall. Enjoy 90 years of hoity-toity writing and reporting on your tablet while you relax in your hammock.

WZUM 1550 AM. This classic-R&B station went back on the air last year after a period of radio silence; now tune in and hear Motown hits, '70s soul and the like, complete with that warm, fuzzy AM-radio feel. Also available through streaming.
