Fun This Weekend
Some selected events happening this weekend in the City of St. Louis.
YMCA Book Fair - Friday Aug 26 through Wednesday Aug 31
at the Carondelet YMCA. (My advisor at WashU, Bill Lowry, is on the board of the Campus Y and often helps run and promote this big event.)
Cathedralfete - Saturday Aug 27
celebrate the Festival of St. Louis at the New Cathedral.
Sauce in the City - Saturday Aug 27
1st annual food and music festival sponsored by Sauce Magazine, at the Soliders' Memorial - or, more precisely, Memorial Plaza.
The Lot - Saturday Aug 27
One of the few remaining major events sponsored by Metropolis St. Louis, a big outdoor concert held originally at 16th and Locust, but for the past few years on the parking lot of The Tap Room.
Bevo Day - Sunday Aug 28
The longest-running neighborhood festival in St. Louis, in a neighborhood where these days you're more likely to hear Dobro došli than gemütlichkeit.
Medicaid Funeral and Rally - Sunday Aug 28
3:00PM to 5:00PM
Old Courthouse Steps, Downtown St. Louis
On Broadway, between Chestnut and Market Streets
(Wear black for the funeral.)
Well, maybe this last one doesn't qualify as 'fun', but it could be provocative and interesting nonetheless.
