"It's Show-Me State spring as the St. Louis Caffeine Crawl celebrates its 8th annual event in the city. Caffeine Crawl will take place Friday and Saturday, May 24-25 over the extended holiday weekend. There will be five different routes over the two days and 15 coffee and tea-related businesses involved. This event has grown to be the largest coffee event in the city. Two Friday routes (avoiding rush hour traffic times) will get it all started followed by three different options on Saturday. The lineup will have several veteran roasters and cafes, but also a few new places and locations. Each shop will provide a drink sample along with a short talk or presentation. For a city with a rich history in beverages, St. Louis is happy to showcase the best aspects of these local hot spots. Grab your caffeine-loving friends, and join us as we explore the city. Friday and Saturday with varying route times. Tickets are $26, available here.
"Like beer, art brings people together. That’s why we established Schlafly’s Art Outside Festival back in 2004. Hosted at the Bottleworks location in Maplewood, we aim to raise awareness and appreciation of art and music created in our very own community. We feature artists you’ve never heard of and deliver a family-friendly experience you won’t find anywhere else. Get closer to 15,000 of your neighbors, and get to know art without pretense. The locally focused festival is FREE to attend. This year, we will also have pet painting, beer samples and the Schlafly Kids Corner." Friday from 5 to 10pm, Saturday from 11am to 10pm and Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
