📢 I am looking for business owners and marketers in Pittsburgh who want to get noticed, connect with customers and increase sales.

I have a limited number of sponsorships available to introduce our Pittsburgh Daily readers to local businesses they need to know. If this is you, then I invite you to learn more and secure your place now.

Here are the top stories in Pittsburgh today:

1) A traffic jam was forming along the East Parkway near the Squirrel Hill Tunnel this morning due to an accident. An accident involving multiple vehicles on the outgoing side would be the reason for the backups. The accident happened shortly after 6 a.m. and involved two tractor-trailers and two cars. Several emergency vehicles are blocking the right and center lanes. Traffic slowly resumes on the left side of the road. There’s no word on injuries or how long crews expect to be at the scene.

2) Guests of The Oaklander Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh can now record a song in an on-site studio. Interested guests will enter a professional sound booth near the lobby to sing, play a musical instrument, or do any other tunes they would like to record. A professional sound engineer will produce the track which will be presented to the guests in digital form. The recording studio and upcoming open-mic nights in the Oaklander’s 10th-floor lounge, Spirits & Tales, are three-and-a-half-year-old hotel efforts to tie in with the neighborhood’s rich musical past.

3) If you know any out of town vampires, let them know that Pittsburgh might be a nice place for them. A national group recently ranked America’s best cities for vampires, and Pittsburgh came in at number 6 on the list. With the second-largest blood center in the nation and the fewest sunny days among 200 chosen cities, Pittsburgh catered to the needs of vampires, according to the survey. “Yes, this ranking is ironic – or rather crooked – for the most part, but there is a serious side to it as well,” the emailed statement said. “Unfortunately for vampires and humans alike, our nation’s blood supply is still in a vulnerable state. If you are eligible, consider making a difference by donate blood at your local blood drive.”


4) A Pittsburgh pro-life activist could face up to 11 years in prison after a federal grand jury in Washington, DC indicted him for blocking access to a DC abortion clinic. Herb Geraghty, 25, is charged with conspiracy against rights and violations of the Freedom of Access Act at clinic entrances after participating in an October 2020 ‘block and rescue pro-life’ of the Washington Surgi -Clinic. In a statement, the Justice Department alleged that Geraghty and others “forced their way into the clinic and proceeded to block two doors of the clinic using their bodies, furniture, chains and ropes.” Geraghty tweeted on the indictment on Monday. He called the protest nonviolent and said the Biden administration was using the Justice Department as “a weapon against political dissidents.” Geraghty, who attended the University of Pittsburgh, is executive director of a nonprofit human rights organization Rehumanize International.


5) Musician Dave Matthews will perform at a rally in Pittsburgh for Democratic US Senate candidate John Fetterman. The free event is scheduled for October 26 at Stage AE on the city’s North Shore. The RSVP page for the event says demand is expected to exceed capacity and admission will be on a first-come, first-served basis. “We are thrilled to have Dave perform for all of our fans in Pittsburgh to thank everyone for their hard work to get to this point and to highlight the stakes of this race for people across Pennsylvania,” Fetterman said in a statement. published by his campaign.
