Fire brought the caveman out of darkness and helped him develop s'mores. These same flickering flames still serve as a source of warmth, light and campfire treats today, and at the Green Center (8025 Blackberry Avenue, University City; 314-725-8314 or www.thegreencenter.org), fire has yet another purpose: as inspiration for a fall party! From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., pay a visit to the center for the second annual Fall Fire Festival. Admission to the affair costs $5 for kids and $15 for adults. For that fare you will watch fire performers demonstrate their ability to take the heat, you may gather in the greenhouse for story time, you can get your hands dirty at the pottery workshop, and you might want to browse the wares at the art sale, which features glass, ceramic works and more, all priced less than $100. Of course, there will be a bonfire — it is a fire festival, after all — and food and wine will be served as part of your admission.
