  • Lil Wayne and Rick Ross
    The bottom line is this: Lil Wayne gave the fans exactly what they wanted, and the concert was a blast. Whether or not Wayne is the "best rapper alive" (as he claims to be) is still highly debatable, but fans at last night's show should have little doubt that he's one of the best performers...

  • Katy Perry at the Scottrade Center
    She jumped off the stage, then over fence separating her from the floor seats, and moon walked halfway down the long aisle. Utter pandemonium.

  • Adobe Reds in Midtown
    I order my stacked enchiladas Christmas-style and with the fried egg. For the meat I choose pork, which is smoked over pecanwood, another hallmark of New Mexican cuisine. It's a colorful dish: The egg yolk quivering atop the enchiladas is a shade that's closer to orange than yellow, and both...

  • Taylor Swift at the Scottrade Center
    Up close, Swift looks younger and tinier than even her music videos make it seem, and her Leann Rimes vibe would be more distinct if it weren't for completely balls-out showmanship and a prissy princess stage persona. Swift clearly adores her crowd, many members of which spent the entire night...
