For Women Only Comes to the Bayfront Convention Center by Miriam Lamey

Saturday, Oct. 29

Dubbed “an expo for today’s woman,” For Women Only combines copious vendors, activities, and health information under the Bayfront Convention Center roof. Part girl’s day/night out and part informational and promotional event, For Women Only features many widely-appealing elements. There will be ample culinary demonstrations and sampling opportunities, manicures and styling demos from Toni & Guy, a “fashion savvy seminar” by Valerie Weaver – who calls herself The Frugal Fashionista – and wine and coffee, of course. On the healthcare side, flu shots will be available, UPMC Hamot will offer health screenings, and Dr. Iadeluca of Iadeluca Chiropractic will offer screenings and tips on how to live a pain-free life. Saint Vincent will have its mobile unit onsite for examinations, preventative care, well-child checks, and more, across the entire weekend. For those who want to make a night out of For Women Only, there is a special Ladies Night Out event from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 29. Also on that evening at 7 p.m., Tammy Pescatelli, winner of Comedy Central’s Standup Showdown, will close out the night with her show Finding Your Funny. – Miriam Lamey
