There's a lot of fun stuff going on this weekend in St. Louis.  Here are a few things to check out if you're in the area:

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are playing at Scottrade Center tonight as part of their "I'm with You" tour.  You can still order tickets here.

Cinema at City Garden kicks off tonight.  Winning shorts from St. Louis-area filmmakers will play on a loop from 6 - 11 p.m. daily on Citygarden's Video Wall at 9th & Chestnut Streets through the end of June.  The filmmakers were asked to create films using nature as a central element.

On Monday at UMSL the Gypsy Caravan is back. A fundraiser for the St. Louis Symphony, the Gypsy Caravan is one of the largest antique, craft and flea markets in the Midwest and has raised over $3.4 million for the Symphony since its inception in 1973.  Vendors come from all over the United States to sell their wares.  There will be a children's area with activities and entertainment for families.  Get your tickets early, since they go for $10 until the day of, when the price jumps to $20.

What are you looking forward to this weekend?


  1. I am so desperate to see RHCP! There are NEVER tix available for anything in the Southern California area unless you are on Ticketmaster the minute they go on sale! :(((

  2. What a bummer. It's funny how that works. When I was living in Williamsburg, VA my mom, brother and I got three tickets to the midnight showing of the Lord of the Rings two hours beforehand. It was a podunk theater and Williamsburg is home to mostly tourists and retirees so that probably has something to do with it, but we were shocked since nationwide, people stood in line for hours and tickets sold out so quickly.
