The brainchild of Robinson native and Montour grad Brent Brown, the 65,000-square-foot complex debuts its strobe-lit bowling alleys, restaurants, sports bars, dance floor and arcade at a VIP preview Friday.
As it readied for its public opening Tuesday night, Latitude 40 threw a preview party Friday night, drawing guests from the Tri-State region and debuting its strobe-lit bowling alleys, open-concept restaurants, sports bars, arcade and live-performance space. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch, former Steelers running back and television analyst Jerome Bettis, gaming and business executive Ted Arneault and about 500 others jammed the 65,000-square-foot entertainment venue in Robinson Pointe. Once inside the neon-bathed entrance of the three-story complex, guests danced to '70s and '80s covers by Totally 80s, sampled signature cocktails and noshed on rare filet and spicy shrimp, grilled vegetables, pastas and oven-fired pizzas, …

The interchangeable PVC back plate for the just-on-the-market cellhelmet case is manufactured in Cranberry.
Sure, we’ve all seen those iPhone covers that promise to be indestructible—which is just fine and dandy. The problem, according to David Artuso, is that most of those covers look, and feel, like a big plastic brick. So he, along with Michael Kane and Bryan McHenry decided to do something about it. Originally, Kane and McHenry, who cofounded cellpig.com, an online store selling cell phone accessories, strived to create an unbreakable iPhone case. They soon found it impossible to do without the unwanted bulky exterior. Utilizing a dense polyurethane rubber, they instead came up with a sleek, modern casing that offers good protection—and backed it with a guarantee. They call it the cellhelmet™. If your iPhone accidentally breaks when inside …

The Robinson supermarket will use personal shoppers to select items for customers.
Giant Eagle Market District in Robinson Township this week launched a new personal shopping service.

Township officials hope to gather input from residents on Moon's future growth.
Lynn Kirkpatrick, owner of the Village Shoppe boutique on Thorn Run Road, said she worries potential customers may too readily travel to Robinson Township. She said Moon’s scattershot business district and lack of a town square drives shoppers away from the township. Instead, she said, they spend their money in nearby communities, where they find a larger selection of corporate retail stores and eateries. “We’re pushing people to shop outside of the Moon area,” said Kirkpatrick, who has owned the Village Shoppe for 22 years. “If that continues, [Moon small businesses] will be gone eventually.” Kirkpatrick on Nov. 8 received Moon Township’s comprehensive plan survey in the mail. Opinions gathered from that survey, administered by the …

Sunday, January 23, 2011
Moon Patch was out on the town today to see how Moon is prepping for the AFC Championship. Here's what we found: The Beer Store has been busy "non stop," according to a store clerk. Patrons have been frequenting the store, which is open on Sundays, throughout the day. As of 6 p.m., Kmart has only one Terrible Towel left in stock. Repeat: ONE TERRIBLE TOWEL. So, if you're towel-less as kickoff approaches, you might want to head down there and snatch it up for $6.99. It's currently on a black-and-gold-themed display table in the front of the store. Steelers-themed merchandise is also thinning out in Kmart, though you'll find a few Steelers blankets, pillows and T-shirts available. The only Roethlisberger jersey in stock is in a child's …
