Your Cup Runneth Over

October weekends at Missouri or Illinois wineries can be amazing: a scenic autumn drive followed by a relaxing afternoon spent sipping wine and picnicking on a grassy, deserted knoll. Unfortunately, October weekends at said wineries can also be infested with long lines and tough customers -- watch out for that bus of drunken college kids, watch out for that bus of drunken ladies, just watch out for that bus! If you’re eager to enjoy a wine festival without the tomfoolery, the DeBaliviere neighborhood has a glass for you. Conveniently located at Belt Avenue between Pershing Avenue and Waterman Boulevard, the inaugural DeBaliviere Decanted community wine festival takes place from 2 to 6 p.m. Stop by to enjoy top-rated wine samples, delectable tidbits from Atlas and other restaurants, and live music, thanks to the Hibernauts and Jumbling Towers. Ten bucks grants you entrance to the event (and a souvenir glass), but if you’re a DeBaliviere resident, admission is free. For more information visit www.metropolisdp.com or call 314-367-7755.
