It seems everyone is becoming a foodie, notes Butler’s Pantry owner Richard Nix Jr. And while a room full of people with similar interests could make for great conversation, a house filled with food experts might leave a host or hostess anxious. To fix this problem, and many others, Nix recommends allowing the professionals to assist you during your hours of entertaining guests.
Despite serving more than 15,000 children this year, St. Louis Children’s Hospital’s Healthy Kids Express is just scratching the surface of the need for health care among kids in the St. Louis area, says Greta Todd-Moorhead, the hospital’s director of child health advocacy and outreach. “Most of the issues we’re addressing are public health crises for these kids and for the whole community,” she says. “There’s a need for a lot more than just our services, but we’re the first step.”
From Tony Award-winning musicals and Grammy Award-winning performers to classic and contemporary art, take a first glimpse into St. Louis’ fall entertainment season.
I’m on vacation. It’s the same vacation I take every summer to a cozy hamlet in northern Michigan. The little town is the same, with fudge shops and stray bikes. The lake is beautiful as always, and the weather is delightfully unpredictable. Nevertheless, something is different. Something has changed.
They’re reporting brisk business at the newly christened Panorama restaurant at the Saint Louis Art Museum’s new East Building. We’re told that lunch reservations have been booked since the restaurant opened, and dinner (served only on Friday) also is a hot ticket. That’s great news for Bon Appetit Management Company and executive chef EDWARD FARROW, who officially rolled out their creative farm-to-fork menu late last month. Among the highlights: Local Roasted Heritage Pork with Summer Herbs and Mustard Stone-Ground Missouri Grits, Corn Flour Crusted Chicken Livers atop watermelon cubes and An Ode to Summer—a spectacular vegetable and fruit dish that changes daily based on what’s fresh that day.
A perfect proposal. An elegant engagement party. A beautiful bridal shower. For your big day and beyond, Kate & Company has every event covered.
So I was having dinner with some friends the other night, and something occurred to me: It doesn’t matter if you have children or a job or dishes in the sink or a dentist appointment to schedule or an oil change looming, we always seem to have too much to do. Well, hold on a second. We have too much to do unless we don’t have enough to do. You know those days when you pawn off the kids, cancel coffee, let the laundry pile up...of course, the one thing I always remember to do after a day like that is kick myself about it. Sure, I watched the entire last season of Scandal, but there’s no food in the house. I never seem to have just the exact right amount to do. When unsolicited advice is offered about my perceived angst over this, it invariably falls into two categories:
Perfection takes time, this Ladue family moved into this home five years ago. Their garden has it all: a pool, dining areas, seating surrounding a fire, and a large lawn for the kids—all enhanced by beautiful plantings.
Well, it’s not Oscar season. Nothing makes that more apparent than the seemingly endless stream of end-of-the-world action movies flooding theaters—the summer of 2013 boasts more than a dozen. If there is one thing movie-goers have known since Mel Brooks stepped onto the scene, it’s that when there is a genre trend in Hollywood, a spoof is not far behind. So, if you’re in the mood to laugh—and have had drinks with dinner—I give you This Is the End.
The massive ceiling restoration at the Fox Theatre is underway. But while the theater is dark, there will be a few things cooking this summer, literally. The lady of the house, MARY STRAUSS, has announced two ‘legendary’ summer four-course dinners to take place in the theater’s Grand Lobby: Dinner with the Stars (July 27) and Dinner with Josephine Baker & Friends (Aug. 24). Dinner with the Stars will offer ‘a taste of Old Hollywood’ featuring recipes culled from some of Tinseltown’s most storied establishments such as Chasen’s and The Brown Derby, as well as an homage to Frank Sinatra by vocalist Tom Heitman. The French-inspired Dinner with Josephine Baker and Friends will feature entertainment from actress Cheryl Howard, who stars in Off-Broadway’s The Sensational Josephine Baker.
