There are plenty of ways to spend your time this weekend as we welcome the month of March.

The Wiz

Pittsburgh and Taylor Allderdice’s own Wiz Khalifa will perform Saturday at Stage AE on the North Side. The megastar rapper, known for his single “Black and Yellow,” has YouTube’s second-highest viewed music video of all time with his song “See You Again,” which served as the official song for “The Fast and the Furious 7.” It features singer Charlie Puth and is in tribute to the late Paul Walker, a star of the action film, who died in a car accident prior to its release. Khalifa is a proponent of marijuana.


Home sweet home

The 38th annual Duquesne Light Pittsburgh Home & Garden Show opens today at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Downtown. New this year is a beer garden with brew made from hops grown on the roof of the convention center. The first floor is filled with idea for landscaping and decks and patios and pools while upstairs you will find kitchen and bath displays as well as the Farm to Table exhibit where you can meet local farmers and find out how to buy fresh fruits and vegetables and meets to support business in this area.


Laugh out loud

Sebastian Maniscalo brings his comedy show today to Heinz Hall, Downtown. The comedian performed in front of five sold-out shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York, which were taped for the Netflix original special “Stay Hungry.” Maniscalo received Billboard’s inaugural comedian of the year award and he has a role in Martin Scorsese’s upcoming picture, “The Irishman,” alongside Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci.


In this space

This is the closing weekend for “DanceFilm,” a survey of contemporary dance made for the screen by international artists and a tribute to a few pioneers. It was guest curated by Carolina Loyala-Garcia and addresses themes including visibility within borders, social justice, the aging body, love, the body in space, and the creative impulse. There will be a closing reception today at SPACE, Downtown. The exhibition closes March 3.


Ice Time

Disney on Ice presents “Mickey’s Search Party,” which runs through Sunday at PPG Paints Arena, Uptown. Join Mickey and his friends for a brand new adventure filled with world-class skating, high-flying acrobatics, and unexpected stunts. Help them follow Captain Hook’s treasure map and look for clues in the search for Tinker Bell.

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.
