Actor Joe Manganiello Makes Pittsburgh Appearance

13 Sep

On Saturday, I had the chance to meet actor Joe Manganiello (from True Blood) at the swanky Savoy restaurant in the Strip. Manganiello, a huge Steelers fan and acclaimed actor, was in town for a charity event at Children’s Hospital.

Below is a photo of him and me at Savoy — too bad it is so blurry!

How many of you ‘Burghers are ‘True Blood’ fans? (How could you NOT be, is a better question!) Join actor/resident hottie Joe Manganiello (who plays werewolf Alcide on the hit show) at SAVOY Restaurant & Lounge this SATURDAY September 10th, at 7pm.

Glitzburgh is thrilled that Joe is stopping by to try SAVOY’s (delish!) Award-Winning menu!

Manganiello – a Steelers fan –  hails from Pittsburgh. Last night, he was involved in an event with Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh — one time of many that he’s supported his hometown. He graduated from Mt. Lebanon High School and then went on to Carnegie Mellon University. While he’s most known at present for his critically-praised role as Alcide Herveaux on HBO’s ‘True Blood’ series, he also played Flash in the Spiderman movies, and had recurring TV roles on hit shows such as How I Met Your Mother and One Tree Hill.

So, swing by, have a Maniac Martini, and try Chef Kevin’s amazing appetizers! Hope to see you there. Check back Monday when we have all the scoop from the event!

Follow-up and Photos from GLITZBURGH: Glamour Meets Giving ~ A Black and Gold Affair

1 Jun

The May 23rd “Glitzburgh Glamour Meets Giving” event held at FATE Lounge in the Strip District was not only a fun and fashionable affair – but also a success, raising almost $14,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

The music was great, the drinks were flowing, and the fashions were fantastic. The crowd was the perfect mix of young and old, and the vibe was friendly, giving, and generous.

Everything was local – from the makeup worn by models (Pittsburgh-based “Obsessed” minerals –www.obsessedminerals.com) to the music (Danielle Barbe, Anthony Jardine) to the fashions on the runway (Sew Addicted, Shop 412, Decade Pittsburgh) and even the models (including Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrisonand Miss Pennsylvania Gina Cerilli.)

I was “live-tweeting” from the event, giving you the most current updates — and, yes, afterwards, I made sure to head home and watch the series finale of LOST, which was, naturally, DVRed and waiting for me that very evening!

See below for some fab photos from this awesome occasion!
