The annual Empty Bowls Dinner is this weekend – don’t miss it. The proceeds benefit the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank and Just Harvest. For the price of admission, you get to choose your own handmade bowl, you get soup from a local restaurant and great bread, water, and live entertainment. It runs from 3 to 7 p.m., at the Rodef Shalom Congregation, Oakland.
The bowls are all made by local potters and art students around the region. Here are a few we’ve acquired over the years:
There’s usually a silent auction for the more serious ceramics collector (great finds there, but I’m generally outbid) and there are always activities for kids.
