What to Do in St. Louis This Weekend

 In City Guide, Culture

Is it just us, or did St. Louis sprout a layer of fresh spring green overnight? While we wait patiently for patio season this weekend, head to a landscape-inspired artist talk, a creative yoga class, a local music festival and much more.

Cocktails & Conversation: ‘Art + Landscape STL’ panel discussion
We’d take any excuse to visit the Laumeier Sculpture Park in spring, but add bites, booze and local artists, and we’re there in a flash. Presented in collaboration with the exhibition “Art + Landscape STL” at the Granite City Art and Design District, artists Christopher Carl, Sage Dawson, Meghan Grubb and Allana Ross will discuss the intersection of art and landscape in their work.

When: March 28 from 6-7:30 p.m.
Where: Laumeier Sculpture Park
Price: Free

Yoga + grown-up recess
Play on and off the mat at an hour-long, all-levels yoga class held at City Museum Downtown. Your class ticket includes entry to the museum, so after the flow be sure to grab a cocktail from the bar and explore St. Louis’ most creative playground after dark.

When: March 29 from 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Where: City Museum
Price: $17.50

St. Louis Sound Project music festival
We can’t wait to dive into St. Louis’ rich musical history with the St. Louis Sound Project this week. You can still catch three of the five nights of the festival, which runs through Saturday. Each concert is dedicated to performers in a different genre, at venues that match the music: Thursday is blues at BB’s Jazz, Blues and Soups; Friday is hip-hop at The Ready Room; and the final night features Americana at Off Broadway.

When: March 28-30
Where: Varies
Price: $10 in advance, $13 day of show, $30 for all-access wristband
