Make plans to attend the St. Louis International Children's Film Festival this summer. Two former St. Louisans are the featured guests: Brad Schiff (Coraline, The Boxtrolls) and Shawn Krause (Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and Up).
When working with brides- and grooms-to-be, Kate Turner, founder of Kate & Company, says her first priority is to give each couple a wedding that reflects their taste and personality. “The places that we work out of are often quintessential hotels, but we don’t want the guests to walk in and say, This is really pretty…but it’s just like the last time I was here,” she says. “We want it to be reflective of who they are.”

Having grown up in St. Louis, I had a strange feeling the first time I lived out of town. Something was missing…Then finally it hit me—it was the Cardinals gear! (And it didn’t help that I found myself in Chicago.) But never you worry—we found some great ways to show your team pride, courtesy of the Official Cardinals Team Store at Busch Stadium.
Kids today are spoiled. When I was growing up, the Cardinals went without a post season from 1969 ‘til 1982. The Cardinals have been to the post season ten times since the year 2000. Kids expect it. They think if the Cardinals are not playing in October, there must be something wrong.
It’s been a long time coming, and in a few days, Cardinal Nation will finally get to christen Ballpark Village, the 10-acre master-planned development designed around Busch Stadium.
Revelers will 'feel their temperatures rising' at St. Louis’ 250th birthday party. And to sweeten the celebration, a region-wide scavenger hunt called Cakeway to the West will feature 250 four-foot-tall cakes throughout the city.
If one of your holiday gifts involved a diamond and a significant four-word question, your new year might be full of etiquette books and vendor samples. For those still radiating newly engaged bliss, Kate & Company has some advice.

As a boy growing up among the farmlands of Iowa, travel always tugged at Bill Bryson’s heartstrings. Lucky for us, when the Midwesterner left his roots to see the world, he took us with him. From A Walk in the Woods along the Appalachian Trail to the wild and wonderful Australian outback In a Sunburned Country, and even through A Short History of Nearly Everything, Bryson has given audiences a passenger-seat view into the funny and factual accounts of his journeys around the globe and his pseudo-trips back in time. Now, the acclaimed travel author aims to make us fall in love with One Summer: America 1927—the ‘coming-of-age season’ of our nation.

Youngsters with emotional and behavioral issues at Edgewood Children’s Center. Kids with hearing impairments at Central Institute for the Deaf. Families looking for a place to stay at St. Louis Transitional Hope House. These are just a few of the 250 nonprofits that benefit every year from funding provided by Old Newsboys Day.
Summer is here. I know that not because of the magical June cloudbursts, nor the brilliant summer blooms. I know that not because of the smell of chlorine in newly opened pools, nor the waft of charcoal from a grill. I know it is summer because I am suddenly called upon to drive three over-scheduled children to various destinations all day, every day without the reprieve of an eight-hour school day. I am telling you there are air traffic controllers at Lambert who haven’t handled as many routes in a day.
Could there be a more appropriate first date for a pair of dyed-in-the-wool St. Louisans than attending a baseball game and cheering for their beloved Cardinals? Regardless of the score, things certainly turned out well for Caley Barnhart and Jack Lawlor.
