5 Things to Do in St. Louis this Weekend 8/16 – 8/18

Friday August 16, 2013

Happy Friday, everyone! The weather is going to be beautiful this weekend! Here are five things you’ll want to make sure you do in St. Louis this weekend.

Moonlight Ramble
Break out your bicycle for the 50th Annual Moonlight Ramble on Saturday, Aug. 17, starting at Busch Stadium parking lot C. Take a leisurely cruise along a long or short top-secret route under the full moon, then stick around for the after-ride party celebrating 50 years of “the world’s original nighttime bike ride” with midnight snacks and live entertainment. The ride benefits HI-USA and Kingdom Hous. Registration is required.

Legally Blonde: The Musical
Can a beautiful girl who has it all really find happiness in America? Only if she learns the true value of what it is she really has. In this classic musical, sorority sister Elle thinks she has her future all tied up with a nice, little pink ribbon, until her boyfriend suddenly dumps her for someone more “serious.” But don’t break out the tissue just yet! This is one girl who doesn’t take “no” for an answer as she sets out to prove that being true to yourself and going after “what you want” never goes out of style. Stages St. Louis presents the frothy musical Friday, August 16 through Sunday, August 18. Admission is $20-$55

Top Chef: The Ultimate Burger Challenge
Join Sauce Magazine and ALIVE on August 18th, 2013 for the most intense grill off St. Louis has ever known. The competition pits six local chefs against one another to amaze your taste buds. With your ticket you’ll enjoy six mini burgers prepared by the top chefs, two complimentary sponsored beverages(one beer and one cocktail) and live entertainment. The Chefs Zach Rice, 3 Monkeys John Roman, Blueberry Hill Mike Johnson, Sugarfire Eric Brenner, Alumni St. Louis Ian Craig, Sub Zero Vodka Bar Matt Galati, The Dam.

Don’t say “goodbye.” Say “see you soon.” to the Humboldt Penquins at the Saint Louis Zoo
Love the Humboldt penguins at the Saint Louis Zoo’s Penguin & Puffin Coast? Better sneak in one last visit before they get moved to an off-display area on Tuesday, Aug. 20. Why are they moving, you ask? The Humboldt penguins need to move to help the zoo prepare for construction of its new McDonnell Polar Bear Point exhibit. That construction will soon require the temporary closing of the entire Penguin & Puffin Coast, also home to gentoo, rockhopper and king penguins as well as the habitat for horned and tufted puffins.
