3. There are so many reasons reasons to hang in The Grove, and Atomic Cowboy wants to make sure you don’t go home hungry. Atomic has upped the ante on its already killer happy hour. Now, you can BOGO tacos during lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Mondays and Fridays.

4. As if it wasn’t already on your calendar, National Pretzel Day is this Friday, and the quintessential St. Louis pretzel twister is showing the love. Gus’s Pretzels in Benton Park is offering free pretzels from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday – one for everyone who walks in the door while supplies last. Swing by during the lunch rush (11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.) and dance to traditional Bavarian music while sipping ice cold Fitz’s root beer. Prost!
