Midnight Madness in Bellevue

For twelve years Erin has been inviting her devoted Erin's Hallmark followers to a Midnight Madness shopping spree in Bellevue.  The hullabaloo surrounding the annual event inspired us to expand the offering to showcase many of the other fine merchants of Bellevue.

At Plank Eye Board Shop, this newest location for boards and accessories available for the skateboard aficionado, visitors viewed the star-studded "Alien Workshop Mind Field" video of the masterful Rob Dyrdek. 

At Matthews Arts Gallery, Pittsburgh Artist Linda Barnicott was available to sign purchases. Renowned for her work in pastels, visitors selected from an array of originals and giclées representing significant Pittsburgh scenes - beginning at 6pm!

At Lincoln Barber Shop, the sounds and scenes in this renew-ovation of the 1966 shop were in full swing! Reminiscent partiers celebrated with Aaron and his friends - Frank and the Rat Pack!

At A Cut Above the Rest, Barb was serving up some sumptuous refreshments along with special holiday styles!

At Muddy Cup, Bob and Andy Gabig of The Blues Orphans entertained with song and banter on the guitar and harmonica. Everyone was laughing and singing along with these local boys from 8pm-10pm. Generous contributions filled the jar!

At Stew's Hobby Shop, visitors sampled the sauce! The shelves were well stocked with favorite Steeler stuff! Big Ben barbeque sauce, Steeler candles, Steeler train sets and more...

At Nibbles & Licks the sweets are hand-made for you and your sweetest!  Milk and dark chocolate covered candies, available by the pound, were available at a very special holiday price! Fine chocolates are always a splendid gift to give and to receive!

At Mane Attractions the models were live on Lincoln Ave! Fabulous hair styles, clothing and accessories showcasing the Holiday bling were the main attraction!

At Cricket the TXTM8 was the object of the $ Raffle! The cheap tickets offered a big reward! The clearance table was marked 1/2 price presenting a real deal on cases and chargers!

At Affogato it was coffee and more! With byob, there was the chatting with friends, playing of favorite board games and the enjoyment of the many specialty foods and flavors.

Restaurants were open for your dining pleasure including Joe's Rusty Nail, Luigi's, Uncle Chen's, Bellevue Diner, Pizza Bomonti, Pizza Milano, Dari-Villa, R&B's, Mojo Bistro, and Vivo.
