Story: Most days, Shirley Bradshaw puts on a face that she keeps in a jar by the door. She’s only 42 years old, but she feels more like 142. It’s the mid-1980s, and Shirley lives a humdrum existence in a working-class neighborhood in Liverpool, England, where John, Paul, George and Ringo got their start.

Since 1956, the Saint Louis Psychoanalytic Institute has been committed to promoting mental health through psychoanalytic education and treatment programs.
At first, I thought that this was just one of those movies with a misleading trailer: They want you to think it’s a tense spy thriller; when really, it’s a dysfunctional family dramedy. You know, a dad who’s always gone for work—because work as a CIA assassin can be demanding—repairs the relationship with his daughter. Then a bit further into it, it occurred to me: It’s an awful, awful movie. Honestly, even with a powerhouse like Costner in the starring role, I am baffled as to how this movie was given the green light, produced and released.

Chef John Perkins has been making waves in the St. Louis culinary scene for a while with his Entre Underground pop-up dinner events and his catering prowess. Then he took a space in the historic Gaslight Square and revamped it for private events and also used it as home base for a series of month-long specialty restaurant concepts he put together. Late last year, he decided to forgo the monthly experiments and use the space to house an ongoing restaurant based on one of them, a successful Southern-influenced event. He called the new eatery Juniper; and it's a cozy, comforting platform for Perkins' unique takes on down-home specialties.

It’s time. The Summer Olympics' less-popular younger sibling, the Winter Olympics, has arrived. As you know, 2014 takes us to Sochi, Russia, for the games. If I’m being completely honest, I’m not all that invested. I do, however, like to be what I refer to as ‘cocktail-party competent’ when it comes to current events. Before the media blitz, if you would have asked me what Sochi was, I would have narrowed it down to Icelandic pop star or Pacific Rim hot sauce. As it is, the only thing I really hear about Sochi is that it’s a snowless, mob-controlled wasteland where a terrorist attack not only is suspected, but apparently imminent. So let’s set the yellow journalism aside and find out some actual facts about these 2014 Winter Games.
