Email went out today from Juniper Grill owner Steven Hughes announcing that Saturday, November 29th will be Juniper’s last day. This has be one of my all time favorite restaurants in St. Louis, hosting birthdays, special occasions, and many spontaneous dinners. No clue was given to the closing but I wish Steven and Shannon the best. Now get out there and have dinner tonight, Friday and Saturday!

Email:

It is with great sadness that I am letting you know that Juniper Grill will be closing Saturday November 29th. We will be open for food sales only.  I would like to thank every one of our customers for your support over the last four years, you have become like family and it has been my honor and privilege to know and serve you.
 
Steven Hughes

Technical difficulties. Will have the old look (or maybe a new one) up soon. Until then, enjoy the beautiful Irish coastline.

Today, I had the opportunity to add my first choice-book of the season to my wish list. I smiled as I clicked the option “add to wish list.” Despite the fact I’ve moved to a new house and every book I own is in stacks -and not those cool college library ones, I still can’t help browsing for new titles to add to the pile of unreads.

Read some commentary on my pick: The Chicagoan. Just as St. Louis often has the “New York-syndrome,” Chicago culture seemed to lead suit by producing its own version of The New Yorker.  Unfortunately, the Chicagoan disappeared from production long ago. . .what’s the future of zines and newsprint anyway?

Side note: To make good on your own wishlists (and others), head to Barnes & Noble in Ladue to help raise some money for local charity: the Contemporary Art Musuem St. Louis. Mention its name over the course of December 7 and 8, and it’ll receive a portion of the proceeds.

Happy reading!

I’ve considered, as of late, writing under a pen name. I would avoid trouble and also any consequence associated with my writing. But does anyone read it anyway? Well, if you’re reading online, this is of interest—online news sources are getting cred for doing the job professionally and doing it cheaply in this New York Times post-complete with a nod to Saint. Louis’s own St. Louis Beacon. How do you keep track of it all? Well, I just updated my igoogle page, problem is I never remember to check it. I’m open to suggestions.

If you have made the mistake t looking at your 401k or IRA statements lately, you know well the effects of this economic “perfect storm.” Though times are tough for all of us, they are hitting the art world especially hard as pointed out in the PD.

Though most of us can’t afford to write a big check to save the day, we can do something. Go to a play, see an exhibit, buy a membership, make a $20 donation to your favorite institution. Every little bit helps and if we all do a little that equals a lot. So support your local arts scene. It is what makes life worth living! Check out www.connectwithstl.com for a list of participating organizations and information on ways to get involved.

I remember exactly where I was two years ago today.  It was about 11pm, and I had just flipped on a repeat of the local news to see a story about a Chicago politician who was being whispered to potentially challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.  It was a long shot.  Clinton had the establishment behind her, and the money in the bank to overcome any potential nuisance of a challenger that could come along.  However, the national media had not had a good opportunity to get to know this challenger from the Chicago political establishment.  And once they did?  Well, it was love at first sight…and it continues to be the longest make out session we’ve ever seen.
