Cheap Date: Arty Party at the Four Seasons

February 2nd 03:02pm, 2012

CheapDate_logoMore often than not, St. Louis is billed as a cultural wasteland. But beneath the city’s sometimes-Philistine facade, a healthy little nest of artists toil into the night, transforming canvas and clay. This week offers a rare opportunity to impress a date by schmoozing it up in the local art scene (or, at least, faking it) and, in the process, grabbing some free intoxicants.

Tonight kicks off the first Arty Party, an event series showcasing local artists in the vanguard of the creative world. The good news: It’s hosted at the gorgeous Four Seasons Hotel.

The better news: It’s free of charge and open to the public. From 6 to 9 p.m., guests are welcome to join painter Jeff Kapfer at his display in the Four Season’s swanky Presidential Suite, where they can mingle, check out the art, chat it up with the artist and grab some free cocktails and light snacks. Booze, schmooze and a little culture thrown in? Hello brownie points.

Following the showing, escort your date over to Cielo Restaurant and Bar – the hotel’s rooftop eatery – for an informal cocktail reception. From there, you can break off on your own and still enjoy a 30-percent discount on your tab. At that rate, four indulgent appetizer plates – like marinated shrimp, calamari salad, arancini, veal-stuffed olives – will run you less than $20. Better still, Cielo boasts some of the most expertly poured drinks in town in a great, upscale atmosphere for a weekday date. For more information, check out the event’s Facebook page.
