I know it seems like it’s been forever since I last post, but let’s talk about the artistic scene. I have learned a lot about the scene here in St. Louis and am still learning as well as places to eat afterward/during. Shoot I’m still learning. But from the newbies perspective, here we are. I’ll begin where I started with UrbArts. Even from Iowa and coincidences I heard about this spot on Friday nights. Let’s start with the organization itself.
UrbArts is an up and coming non-profit that uplifts artist in the St. Louis with a new home located on 2600 N. 14th St. “Urban Artist Alliance for Child Development, Inc. (UrbArts) is a 501 © (3) nonprofit corporation formed in the state of Missouri for the purpose of promoting arts, education, economics, and social services. Founded in August 2001…” Want more info visit www.urbarts.org/
Soooo… I bet you’re wondering what you can see at UrbArts:
Now as far as food:
Crown Candy is a great spot to eat at which is right down the street from UrbArts definitely worth the price for this St. Louis specialty. You can smell the sugar as soon as you walk in. Diabetics be warned, but they have great lunch/dinner items as well. Try the sundae, they don’t skim on portions either so make sure you have a hearty appetite.
But for something that is good, affordable, and with great entertainment check out Legacy Books and Café where UrbPoetry is held every 3rd Friday night. The chicken is boss, yep I said boss. Now for those with dietary needs like vegetarians out there they do have a delectable veggie burger. There are also other menu items.
