The St. Louis Weekend Events Guide for Thursday, January 7th through Sunday, January 10th, 2016. Happy New year!


*Twelfth Night: The official start of St. Louis Mardi Gras! The festivities start at 5pm with the petitioning of the Mardi Gras, Inc. Board of Directors. Dignitaries, parade krewes, community organizations, and anyone else of good will and cheer is encouraged to make a creative appeal to the Board to host the annual pre-lenten celebration. At 6:45, after a lengthy, tense, and somewhat raucous debate the Board emerges on the front steps of Johnny’s to announce it’s decision. A decision of this magnitude must be properly fete’d and what better way to do so than with a parade through the streets of Soulard stopping along the way to toast at several of Soulard’s venerable establishments. It all culminates at Soulard Market in Rudy Commons with the coronation of the 2016 Rex.

Doesn’t know how to cook and survives pretty much on macaroni and cheese and pizza, so naturally, loves to eat out at restaurants. However, one day when she is married and has a family to cook for, she would love to take cooking classes and learn awesome skills like the chefs on Iron Chef long as she doesn't have to clean the dishes afterwards.
