It was a busy month in the St. Louis suburbs. Pi Pizzeria closed in Kirkwood, citing its landlord's redevelopment plans. Vernon's BBQ also saw a much-lamented closure in University City, while candy shop Rocket Fizz said goodbye to the Loop.

But more than a few exciting openings made up for it. In addition to a new location of the Shack in O'Fallon and Growler USA in St. Charles, a glamorous new karaoke lounge opened its doors in the Loop and acclaimed bartender Ted Kilgore opened his mixology-meets-dive-bar spot, Small Change, in Benton Park. Oh, and Bevo Mill got a Syrian restaurant, one founded by refugees.


Expect lots more action in March, so keep an eye on this blog for further updates. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments.
