Zombies have always been part of the cultural lexicon, but over the past few years, there’s been a bona fide zombie boom, to the point that it's probably not worth listing all its iterations. To celebrate this phenomenon, and Pittsburgh’s own zombie culture, the Heinz History Center will host Walking Dead Meets Living Dead: Zombies in Pittsburgh. Smithsonian curator Eric Jentsch will discuss the history of zombies in pop culture, and colleagues of George Romero will cover the city’s own role in zombie culture. The night also features zombie-themed cocktails, special effects makeup, and movie poster making. Costumes are not required but encouraged, and the best getup wins a prize.
