Fans of retro game shows and contemporary podcasts alike won’t want to miss this lively event.

Award-winning Pittsburgh podcast host Marta Mazzoni — who has interviewed everyone from Alec Baldwin to Peter Max — is celebrating her 100th episode and you’re invited to the party.

Dubbed a “classic Match Game Show for the modern yinzer,” the event will feature a creative twist on the 1960s NBC television panel game show that featured celebrity contestants answering fill-in-the-blank questions. Join local personalities like Rick Sebak, Kellee Maize and Day Bracey on stage as you compete for the chance to win prizes worth more than $400.

The night‘s entertainment will showcase magic performances by Lee Terbosic and musical drag shows by Deep Violet, plus there will be free beer samples from Helicon Brewing.

A raffle will feature an escape room experience by Enter The Imaginarium, gift cards from Harris Grill and Pittsburgh gift baskets. An after-party in the lobby will showcase old-school fun with Pittsburgh Retro Gaming.

Sign up to compete at the pre-party starting at 7 p.m. and get a special name tag. Contestant names will be pulled randomly during the show.

Buy tickets.
