Big Field Cafe – Ste. Genevieve Missouri

Saturday afternoon in Southeast Missouri was beautiful. The sun shone, the temperatures were lovely, and more importantly, my day off allowed me to spend some much needed time with the one and only MommaGFunk (i.e. small town girl’s mom). One of the perks of being a Funk is that the … Continue reading

Yelp Elite at the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission

It’s been sixteen months since I moved back to the St. Louis area from Brooklyn, New York. Because I seek interaction with new people and tend to make friends quickly, I was concerned that St. Louis would begin to feel too small to me once I got on my feet … Continue reading

Saucy Soiree Recap

Monday night was Sauce Magazine’s “Saucy Soiree”, a coming-out party of sorts for the winners of its Readers Choice awards for local restaurants and bars.

STL Uncorked

Saturday, June 19th was St. Louis Uncorked, a downtown wine and music festival. It was supported this year by KMOX, KEZK and Y98 FM, but it was organized by a private special events company, which I believe was a wise choice on the part of the radio stations. Despite soaring … Continue reading

Today’s post is dedicated, once again, to notable bathrooms. Local Harvest, located in South City St. Louis, is a fantastic little cafe that offers spectacular local-produced foods. It’s also the only restaurant I’ve found in St. Louis that offers a vegetarian slinger (if you’re not from St. Louis, I’ll educate … Continue reading

Local Harvest St. Louis…and Beets

One of the best parts of my job is that I get to work with coworkers ranging in age from teenagers through retirees (who’ve come back to work in retirement). Last week at work, two coworkers were discussing beets, which it seems have a reputation as an “old person’s food”. … Continue reading

Gordon’s Stoplight Drive-In: Crystal City, Missouri

The man and I have a problem; on weekend mornings he wakes up craving a burger and a diet coke, and I wake up craving eggs and coffee. One of my favorite things about life in New York City was the tendency of (seemingly) everyone to spend weekend mornings (and … Continue reading

St. Louis Cellars

Angela Ortmann of @StLWineGirl was kind enough to take me as her guest to a St. Louis Cellars Wine Club event in February, and I had a great time. St. Louis Cellars only carries wines that are Continue reading

Picasso’s Coffee House in Old St. Charles, Missouri

Work required me to travel to St. Charles yesterday, so I took advantage of the opportunity to have a quick cup of coffee in Historic Downtown St. Charles with my friend Elizabeth (@ekcutshall) and two of her three kiddos. I went to college in a very old Louisiana river town, … Continue reading
