Pride Fest is extra sweet this year -- Mayor Slay helped four couples flout the state's ban on same-sex marriage this week. It's a step in the right direction, so let's celebrate. Of course the parade is downtown, but check out where you should be before and after.

Siam (4121 Manchester Avenue; 314-533-7426)

This new bar took over the space of Novak's, a St. Louis institution that is gone but not forgotten. Still, it's quickly becoming one of the best gay bars in town. The party kicks off Friday night with DJ Black Guy spinning videos from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. There are drink specials all weekend, of course, and look out for some special events. Follow Siam's Facebook page for up-to-the-minute deals.
