Pretty, but not a recommended taste of Maplewood.
It's that time of year again, as various St. Louis communities show off their restaurants and shops in various Taste of... events. Maplewood takes its turn this Saturday, May 22, from noon-9 p.m. The Taste of Maplewood event will be held on Sutton Boulevard, which will be closed to pedestrian traffic. Look for vendors, live music and more!

Food vendors are slated to include such Gut Check favorites as Acero, Monarch, Schlafly Bottleworks and the Post Sports Bar & Grill.

If you need any other reason to visit, here's a recent Tweet from Monarch executive chef and defending Riverfront Times Best Local Chef Josh Galliano:
today we smoked 45 lbs of andouille and 4 berkshire hams for Taste of Maplewood.
Like, I'm there.
