The standout appetizer is that pub classic of housemade chips and rarebit — in this case a "fondue" made from Irish cheddar and Urban Chestnut's terrific Winged Nut ale. The chips — crisp, golden-brown, slightly chewy and brimming with potato flavor — are so good that Three Kings should offer them as a side with sandwiches and burgers, rather than the unremarkable French or sweet-potato fries.

With summer slowly coming to a close, we decided to meander through our own neighborhood, the Delmar Loop, before cooler temperatures hit the city for good. During our stroll, we found quite a few characters living it up on a Tuesday night.

The annual Delmar Loop Ice Carnival warms the hearts of many attendees, but this year, things were a bit chillier than usual. On January 17, 2015, one day after the Snow Ball kicked off the weekend, demonstrators visited the Loop on one of its busiest days for a #BlackLivesMatter protest, stemming from a Ferguson police officer's controversial fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in August 2014. Demonstrators of all ages and backgrounds marched down Delmar Boulevard, invoking Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and blocking traffic at Delmar and Skinker. Some onlookers were wary, while others joined the march.
