Now in its 5th year, DRW has grown to 25 diverse and delicious destinations. Last year’s event attracted over 15,000 diners, so make reservations early to secure a table for this fabulous food event! There are no passes to buy, coupons to carry or cards to punch – patrons simply attend the restaurant of their choice and select from a special 3-course dinner menu for $25 per person, plus tip, plus tax. This is a great way to rediscover a longtime favorite or experience one of St. Louis’ hot new eateries. Reservations are highly recommended! For more info, go to downtownrestaurantweek.net.

Now this looks fun! From our friends at Sauce Magazine via the Daily Sauce:

Opera + Fire
 
Looking for some complimentary opera? Then listen up at Third Degree Glass Factory tonight, when performers from Union Avenue Opera will offer a noteworthy peek from the season opener, Verdi’s Il Trovatore.

Afterwards, the Michael Jonas Band will switch things up with bluegrass, new grass and jazz. And it goes without saying that glassblowing demos – complete with sign language student interpreters from SLCC-Florissant Valley – are scheduled throughout the festivities. Meanwhile, hands-on types can make glass keepsakes of their own, while looky-loos can take in two new glassy exhibits – Karen Woodard’s Dreamzine Dudes and Jessica Kopitske’s Duck! New Glass.

As far as our favorite part? The long-standing tradition of favorite wine bottles being transformed into glass platters for only 10 bucks each.

What: Third Friday Open House
When: Fri., July 17 – 6 to 10 p.m. (Opera at 7 p.m.)
Where: Third Degree Glass Factory, 5200 Delmar Blvd., St. Louis
Cost: Free
Info: 314.367.4527 or www.stlglass.com

Every July, RCP teams with the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis to help showcase local artists by previewing the Annual City-Wide Open Studios. The fun starts on Tuesday, 7/21 at the Contemporary where you will have the opportunity to interact with participating artists and view samples of their work. Then that weekend (7/25 – 7/26), the artists are inviting you to visit the spaces where they work. Over 100 artists are participating this year so plan your routes well to see as many as possible. Finally on Sunday, make your last stop The Royale for a “starving artist” BBQ. Organized tours and bike rides are planned so check out  http://openstudiosonline.org/ for more info and to get a copy of the map.

Event Details:

The LOT outdoor music festival is a treasured St. Louis tradition that started 11 years ago with one person’s dream of hanging out in a St. Louis parking lot, listening to live local bands and drinking beer. In the past 11 years the LOT has developed into something much more than that original dream. This free outdoor music festival has always been about bringing people together; this year the LOT is about engaging people of all backgrounds with fun outdoor activities, musician garage sale, and artist exhibitions. Attendees will also receive a coupon book from local businesses that feature discounts and deals in the St. Louis area. This event is free to attend and you get awesome local deals!

The festivities start at 2pm for a musician’s garage sale and go until 12:30am with live local bands on August 29th, 2009 at downtown’s only Schlafly Tap Room. This event attracts over 2000 visitors and is a guaranteed good time.

Band line up and more Details at http://mstl.org/lot/
