The Red Guy

I saw this on a local convenience store dumpster enclosure the other day. It looks stenciled but cool nonetheless.

The Leading Lady

Last night I saw Theatre Under the Star's (TUTS) performance of 42nd Street starring Lorretta Swit at the Miller Outdoor Theatre. While walking through a portion of Hermann Park I spotted a "leading lady" of sorts. I just loved how the setting sun was her spotlight!

Happy Friday!

Genghis Grill

My husband and I and a few of our friends went out to Genghis Grill for dinner recently. Much to our delight, dinner was amazing!

Genghis Grill is unique in that you choose exactly what you want in your bowl. You choose the protein (meat or tofu), spices, veggies, sauces, and a starch you want and they cook it for you on a circular grill. According to the Genghis Grill website, "...According to this legend, 12th century Mongol warriors, led by the mighty warrior GENGHIS KHAN, heated their shields over open fires to grill food in the fields of battle!..."

I took this picture of my husband's bowl just before he took his first bite!

Rudi Lechner's

Hi, everybody! This is Rudi Lechner, owner of Rudi Lechner's Restaurant & Bar. If you are ever in the mood for great German food, this is the place! There is live music at Rudi's on Wednesday through Saturday evenings where you can see a Swiss Alphorn! (In fact, the man in the white shirt to the right of Rudi was playing the Swiss Alphorn when this picture was taken.)

Also at Rudi's, they invite you to "loosen your lederhosen" and celebrate Oktoberfest every Wednesday night with a German buffet!

In this photo, Rudi is making his famous, "
Gutte Nacht Kaffe."

Happy 4th of July!
