{Few people make me laugh like Stephen Wancha, the gregarious food and beverage director at The Four Seasons St. Louis. His hotel stories have had me doubled over (even when I didn’t have a glass of wine in hand), particularly those of a childhood spent running amok in the resort hotels his dad managed. Clearly, hospitality runs in the family. This is Wancha’s last week in The Lou; he’s leaving town for a Four Seasons gig in Florida. I’ll miss you, Wancha!}

How about a yes to the Hario V60?}

{Live performances at Tavern of Fine Arts are my solution for getting cultured without: dealing with MetroTix; wrestling the guy next to me for armrest rights; sitting perfectly still for two hours; and listening to my stomach growl. At this intimate venue, I can enjoy the performances of singers, pianists, string quartets and even flamenco dancers, while I eat and drink on the comfy sofa in back.}
