On Tap: Curtain Call Lounge Opens Tonight at the Fabulous Fox
Heading to see “Wicked” tonight at The Fabulous Fox? Well, you’ll want to stop by the opening of St. Louis’ first Champagne bar, Curtain Call Lounge, for a drink. Serving up Champagne—and also full service bar—along with a menu of appetizers, flatbreads and more, the classy lounge is a great fit for a night at the theatre.
“Curtain Call Lounge will be a fabulous extension of the Fox and our guest experience,” said Thom Johnson, Vice President of Food and Beverage operations at the theater. “It will be St. Louis’s first Champagne bar with an extensive selection of the finest Champagnes and wines by the glass, local craft beers on tap and a cocktail menu that blends the freshly made flavors of classic cocktails.”
Curtain Call Lounge will open at 5pm and remain open until two hours after all evening performances at The Fox. On matinee days, doors will open following the matinee and remain open until two hours after the evening performance.
On Dec. 18-19, the Unit Jazz Trio will play from 10pm-midnight following The Fox performances of “Wicked.” 521 N. Grand Blvd., Grand Center, 314.534.1678
Grapefruit in beer is becoming a thing, but what consumers may not know is that most brews contain grapefruit juice concentrate and/or artificial flavorings—until now. Schlafly Beer introduced STL to its Grapefruit IPA this week. Fermented with all-natural grapefruit—in partnership with Oregon Fruit Products purée—the fruit is dry-hopped with American-grown Citra hops. The beer brings a refreshing aroma and tart flavor and will be Schlafly’s first new year-round beer in eight years with full distribution by January.
Also in Schlafly news, the brewery’s limited-release collaboration beer with Niche—Chestnut Mild Ale—was celebrated at a pairings dinner this week. The seasonal beer was made from more than 200 pounds of local chestnuts roasted and peeled by chef Gerard Craft’s restaurant teams.
