As we begin to experience the caress of winter’s chill, I think back to a perfect spring day when a group of LN staffers joined Food Outreach’s ‘cook and pack’ volunteers.

So something funny happened last week. It’s not earth-shattering or anything, but it did kind of creep up on me. Birthdays don’t exactly appear out of nowhere. On some level, we know when our kids’ birthdays are coming up. Punch’s big day shouldn’t have been a shock. We’ve been celebrating it for years, after all. I remember the first one vividly as it was the night of the infamous Bush-Gore presidential election, dimpled chads and all. Nevertheless, when he burst through the bedroom door that morning and announced, I’m a teenager! It hit me like a safe falling from a roof: I have three teenagers.

St. Louis' latest BBQ joint, Adam's Smokehouse, has opened its doors at 2819 Watson Road in Clifton Heights. The new eatery is a collaboration between FRANK VINCIGUERRA and MIKE IRELAND, who both worked for several years at Pappy's Smokehouse before venturing out on their own.

Eleven Eleven Mississippi is celebrating its 10th anniversary next month, and during the first 11 days of November, the restaurant has a variety of activities and giveaways planned, including $10 weekday lunch specials.

The Saint Louis Zoo has plenty to be excited about, including the $15-million polar bear habitat, which is set to open in 2015. Construction on the 40,000-square-foot McDonnell Polar Bear Point began last month. When completed, it will more than double the space of the zoo’s old polar bear habitat, and house an adult male and female bear, as well as a couple of cubs. Among the features of the new space is a seamless transition from sea to coastline to land, allowing the bears to swim, dive, rock-climb and dig in the sand. There also will be a 22-foot visitor viewing window and an Arctic cave room for viewing the bears as they swim in a 13-foot-deep pool. The habitat also includes a state-of-the-art life support system that recirculates and treats exhibit water, saving the zoo some 2.3 million gallons of water each year.
