Fore! Here's your chance to golf at Heinz Field ... and other weekend happenings
This weekend brings a variety of things to do. For the golfers out there, try a different kind of course at the Tee It Up event at Heinz Field—the drives won't be done with a football, but a golf ball instead. Fans of the CW show "Supernatural" will get an opportunity to meet some of the stars of the program. Looking for a bargain? Shop the Neighborhood Flea in the Strip District where you might find that gem you've been looking for. Support the LGBT community at Pittsburgh Pride Fest or sit back and relax to some bluegrass by Alison Krauss.

LISTEN TO HER
Born in Champaign, Ill., Alison Krauss grew up listening to everything from folk to opera to pop and rock music, but quickly fell in love with bluegrass when she began playing the fiddle at the age of 5. At 14, Rounder Records signed her to her first record deal and she went on to release her debut solo album two years later. She became a member of the Grand Ole Opry at age 21.
Krauss will be at the Benedum Center, Downtown at 7:30 p.m. June 8. Since 1985, she has released 14 albums, including five solo, seven with longtime band and musical collaborators Union Station, and the Robert Plant collaboration "Raising Sand," which was certified platinum and won five Grammys, including album of the year and record of the year. She's sold more than 12 million records. "Windy City," her latest solo album, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums and Top Bluegrass Albums charts and received Grammy nominations.
