ChiliWorks, the SouthSide Works chili competition was a blast the first time we attended in 2010, and we highly recommend that you go any time they decide to do it again!  Keep check their event listings.
Fun Buy The Pound has two stores, one in Sewickley that has a storefront that carries toys that promote creative and educational play … along with areas that you can pay by the hour for your kids to play with and try out some of the toys they sell.  It’s also a great place for group play dates.  There is a second store in Robinson that only has a storefront for the toys.  This is a store that is locate and highly reocmmended by SWB.
