    I was Just there March 24th for the sound of music, concealed carry is not a problem. They do have a new bag search policy if the bag is too big. I didnt see anyone stopped or bags searched.

    Let's just boil this down to its essence:


    Dear patron of the arts,

    Please be advised that in the Cultural District, you may encounter criminals, feral urban youths, drug and alcohol abusers, and/or mentally-ill people in possession of firearms, stun guns, martial arts weapons, pepper spray, knives or other cutting instruments. For your safety and the safety of Downtown miscreants, these items are banned from all Cultural Trust properties. Patrons in possession of any self-defense item(s) may be held for the police and their item(s) confiscated. When walking Downtown, we recommend that you avoid all bus stops, alleys, bridges, intersections, and public sidewalks.

    Guest Code of Conduct: Don't be a dick.

    You can thank the Dept of Homeland Security for this one. Feel free to leave a comment at today's Post-Gazette article if you want to voice your displeasure.

    Have they gotten to the point of wanding or metal detectors yet? Are there obvious no firearms signs?

    I was at Tom Jones, Styx, lately. There are no signs of which I was aware (there may be signs, but the crowds at the door would've prevented them from being visible).

    I wasn't asked to open my jacket. Concealed Carry should remain just fine. Like Justin, I'm a Circles member until the end of this year. I won't be going forward, and I've already informed the development (fundraising) staff why. In addition, I'll be in a room later this fall with Kevin McMahon, where I'll address it.

    They won't care--they can bleed the Heinz family for the couple of grand that my employer and I don't cough up. But they'll at least have two datapoints to go on...
