Virtual Happy Hour with Tim Wiggins

October 29, 2020

Who here remembers baking bread? Or organizing every nook and cranny of your house, or drive-by parades?

We’re going back to one of our favorite parts of early pandemic times, the virtual happy hour, with renowned drink slinger and restauranteur Tim Wiggins (Yellowbelly, Retreat Gastropub, and Lazy Tiger). He’ll share the things even at-home bartenders should know and teach us his modern riff on a gin martini.

Rather get out of the house? Check out our rundown of spots where you can grab limited-edition Halloween drinks, boozy and otherwise, and a Halloweekend planner.

With sightings from St. Charles County to the Metro East, ghost kitchens are the newest way for chefs and restaurateurs to bring new life into their business model — and it means tasty new options for you. We'll talk to the owners of three area ghost kitchens — Motor Town Pizza, Kriegers Grill and Wing Runner — about why ghost kitchens aren't so spooky after all.

Then, we'll bring you up to speed on all the moving and shaking in this week's food news and help plan your weekend.

Has this been the worst year ever? Maybe — but not for Steve Ewing, front man of The Urge and owner of Steve's Hot Dogs. Despite living life with each foot planted in an industry that’s been absolutely shaken this year — music and restaurants — Steve says he’s standing strong.

From shutting down to receiving national awards for Black-owned businesses helping the community... What’s gotten him through this year, both mentally and physically, and why he sees a lot of good coming in St. Louis’ next act.

Plus, a fully loaded weekend planner to get you out and about (safely) this spooky season.

Grab your headphones and listen to this one while hitting up your favorite walking path, because this episode is all about getting outside with chef Rob Connelly, who came to fame by turning "foraging" into fine dining. Hear his tips for the newly outdoorsy, where he's been getting his energy and what would happen if Lewis and Clark could do a search on Yelp.

This week we're re-airing our conversation from just about a year ago in September 2019 to spice up your feed once again. We'll be back with a fresh new episode next week.
