Hello my cyber-STL-loving-foodie-friends. Do you have plans for May 29th? If not, I have you covered with a great event. Heck, even if you do have plans, you are going to want to change them. May 29th, Alive Magazine will celebrating the best of all things STL with their event called We Heart STL.
Since this is a food blog, let’s focus in on what I know you want to know: what is there to munch on at the event? Glad you asked! The current food vendors are:
That’s a pretty impressive line-up. Chef Bernie Lee of Hiro is really tearing it up. If you haven’t had his slinger for brunch, you are missing out. Another dish that should be on your short list is his KFC (Korean Fried Chicken). I recently sampled some of his food at a pop-up restaurant that took place at Hammer & Hand; great space and fantastic food. Here’s one of my favorites from that night:
Have you tried Clementine’s ice cream? I had not until the Power of the Dinner put on by Strange Cares. It was part of a beer float. Yes, that exists. I was lucky enough to try some of the ice cream on its’ own. It is going to be a guilty pleasure this summer for sure.
What can you say about Pi Pizzeria that hasn’t already been said? What started as a local hotspot has spread its wings. They have pizza for all pizza lovers from thin crust to Chicago style. It’s deep rooted in our culture and part of what makes STL special.
Three Sixty is my go-to spot downtown on game day. If you don’t have tickets to the game and want something a little more upscale, it’s a great way to enjoy the atmosphere of game day without the heat and humidity. The view is second to none and the cocktails will keep you cheering all game long.
In case you haven’t heard, Central Table is shaking it up a bit. They are dropping the “Food Hall” from their moniker and are going for a more upscale dining experience. They have started hosting several events with live music, wine tasting, a ladies night, and an industry night. It’s worth checking out if you haven’t been for a while. You can view their new menu on their Facebook page HERE. You are likely to see some old favorites and some new items you will want to try.
Need any more convincing? I doubt it. If so, check out ALIVE Magazine’s top 10 Reasons to attend the We Heart STL event. You can buy tickets HERE.
