So, the economy is still basically tanked. Why not enjoy the simpler pleasures America has to offer, such as monster-truck racing? The Fall Nationals Monster Truck Spectacular powers into Chaifetz Arena (1 South Compton Avenue; 314-977-5000 or www.thechaifetzarena.com) at 7:30 this evening, featuring the big boys of trucking competing head to head in races and freestyle. The highlight of the evening is the rematch of Bounty Hunter and hometown hero Bigfoot (Bigfoot 14, for those of you who meticulously chart the Bigfoot family). Bounty Hunter swept the 2009 edition, so Bigfoot has redemption in mind. Tickets are $12 to $27, and the usual assortment of dirt bikes and ATVs will race for cash prizes between truck events.
