As cinephiles waited with bated breath to see who would be taking home the Oscar, and fashionistas stayed glued to the red carpet to see who was wearing what, the Pittsburgh Film Office was welcoming 900 into the East Club Lounge of Heinz Field for Lights! Glamour! Action!
“I love seeing the reactions (of the winners) and, of course, seeing what people are wearing,” confessed Dr. Katie Farah, who was escorted by her husband, Dr. Tony.
Upon arrival, guests walked a tented red carpet flanked with members of the “paparazzi” before entering into the actual party, which has become a staple for the party season. Inside, cocktails were flowing while dozens of flat-screens were streaming live coverage from LaLa Land.
“I'm pulling hard for ‘Silver Linings Playbook.' ... I love Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence,” said David Haddad (with Karen).
On the VIP list were PFO director Dawn Keezer, board prez Russ Streiner, co-chairs Dr. William and Pride Winkenwerder Jr., Nancy Mosser, Deb Docherty, Merrill and Miroya Stabile, Paul Hennigan, Stan and Susan Muschweck, Andy Devonshire, Lucas and Renee Piatt, and Alan and Diane Perer.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
