5 Things To Do in St. Louis This Weekend | January 29 – 31
Here are 5 ideas to help you Explore St. Louis this weekend.
Experience the magic of The Magic House this weekend with your family. In Kirkwood, kids can make a mess, a mud pie – or, both — in the “mud kitchen”; explore a shallow stream and creek bed, make stick castles alongside native Missouri plants, and more. In the Children’s Village, they can climb a ladder into a treehouse, serve pizza in a restaurant, catch a fish in a pretend pond, and use some tools to service a car. Make sure to stop by the museum’s new sensory play space, which gives the little ones a chance to explore, sort, classify and organize all kinds of objects.
Shake off COVID cabin fever with the Soulard Mardi Gras Scavenger Hunt. This Saturday, recruit your friends to fill the car and get ready to explore St. Louis on a fun-filled Saturday afternoon. Your team will solve clues that will lead to six iconic STL sites where you will be asked to answer questions and perform an activity to be posted on social media. Each team must designate a driver, who will receive a special rewards bag. Once your team has completed the scavenger hunt you will receive a thank you voucher good at any participating Soulard establishment for a complimentary bucket of beers or round of cocktails and an appetizer courtesy of the Mardi Gras Foundation.
Travel back in time at St. Louis Union Station. Opulence in the Grand Hall is a pop-up cocktail experience that will take you back to the 1920s. The bar will be open daily from 4:00-11:00 pm. Experience a glimpse of what life was like for traveling crowds like flappers, gangsters, lawmakers, and more. The pop-up features 1920’s inspired decor and a menu of cocktails. Food is served on Fridays and Saturdays. No reservation is needed to experience this attraction.
Stimulate your thinking with Travis Sheridan’s Imperfect Pixels exhibit at the Angad Arts Hotel. This is an immersive, interactive exhibit for patrons, as Travis asks us to “slow down and remember those the Black community has lost.” The work consists of nine images that only become clear to the viewer when they stop and interact with them and allows the person to pause and have a personal moment with each piece. Glass orbs will be provided for the patrons to view. 25 percent of all sales from the exhibit will be donated to the All Black Creatives Foundation and an additional 25 percent will be donated to one of three organizations of the patron’s choice. For more information, visit their website.
Explore all the cool things that are made in St. Louis. On Friday, January 29, See STL: Made in STL will take you on a virtual tour of the innovations made in the gateway city. Through the miracle of the virtual time-traveling tour bus, you will visit long-shuttered factories, learn about products that seemed like a great idea at the time, and find out what the city’s modern-day innovators are up to. The tour begins at 7 pm and lasts approximately 90 minutes.
