Local Harvest Café

Local Harvest Café is open. It's across Morganford from Local Harvest Grocery. We stopped by after visiting Tower Grove Farmers' Market. The Horine-Ryan-Earnest-McClelland local food empire continues to grow.

The build-out at the café looks great. Stop by sometime soon for a sandwich or parfait*. Their hours are currently:

7 a.m - 2 p.m., Tuesday - Friday
8 a.m. - 3 p.m., Saturday

* "You know what else everybody likes? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, 'Letís get some parfait,' they say, 'Hell no, I donít like no parfait'? Parfaits are delicious." — Donkey, Shrek

St. Louis Is a Soda Island

In a nice example of a geographic information system (GIS), "The Great Pop vs. Soda Controversy" online survey asks respondents "What generic word do you use to describe carbonated soft drinks — pop, soda, Coke or something else?"

When the results are plotted by hometown zip code, the resulting map shows St. Louis as an island of soda, with Coke to the south and pop to the north.

He's Big in France

Though not always beloved in the town where one of his champions, arts patron Emily Pulitzer, keeps trying to convince the locals, sculptor Richard Serra is riding high off the well-received installation of his new work, "Promenade," exhibited during May and June in Paris' Grand Palais exhibition hall. Five 56-foot-tall, 73-ton slabs of steel were erected in the hall's expansive atrium. All in a day's work for the artist, who was recently honored as a Commander in the Order of Arts and Letters, a tribute awarded by the French Academy.
