10 Things to Do For $10 This Weekend in St. Louis, March 5-7, 2010

Posted By on Fri, Mar 5, 2010 at 1:07 PM

The weather's supposed to be great this weekend (with a small chance of rain on Sunday), so get out there! Here are our suggestions for ten things to do Friday through Sunday that won't cost you more than $10. Looking for local concerts this weekend? Consult our weekend concert calendar.

Rhyme or Reason with Steve Ewing (Friday)
Somebody is probably just looking at this heap of records in their den right now thinking they should unload them on Sunday at the American Czech Center. You should probably be there to score some.

Rhyme or Reason performs at the Old Rock House (doors open at 8, show at 9.) The cost is $10 flat but here's a $2 surcharge for minors. Click here for more info.


DJ Felix Cartal (Friday)

Who doesn't love popular music? The Felix Cartal "Popular Music Tour" comes to Sol Lounge (4239 Lindel) on March 5. Doors open at 9 p.m. $10 to get in. Click here for more info. (Check the RFT on Saturday for photos from the party.)

The Idiotarod (Saturday)

The Idiotarod, a fundraiser for Operation Food Search (of course), transforms the little one-seater shopping cart into a dogsled-cum-noble vehicle. Four-person teams must be attached via bungee cords, rope or something similarly sturdy, then they'll pull the cart (they're disqualified if they ride in the cart) through downtown while one musher spurs them on to victory. To add to the ridiculous nature of the race, every team must have a theme for their cart and then decorate it accordingly -- and each team member must also be costumed to match the theme (no masks allowed, but helmets are recommended). It's free to watch the madness. Read the rest of Paul Friswold's preview.
