This must be what it's like to be rich — eating fancy foodstuffs while sipping wine and lounging within an exquisitely curated garden. Hired musicians perform late into the warm summer evening for your pleasure. The Whitaker Musical Festival, a weekly series of concerts at the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard, 314-577-5100), lets us all dream a little. There are few things better than a picnic, a blanket and a patch of grass on the Wednesday nights it's on the schedule. And unlike actual rich people, we don't even have to pay for it. The concerts are all free.
