Posted By on Fri, Aug 31, 2007 at 6:00 PM

Not totally satisfied with your weekend itinerary? Never fear, Go! is back! This regular feature highlights everything from rock shows to art openings, from delicious dishes to hidden-gem hangouts.

Friday, 8/31

One Last Boogie: Don't miss the final night of the Jungle Boogie Concert Series at the Saint Louis Zoo with soul songstress Kim Massie from 5 to 7 p.m. And put those wallets away -- admission is free!

Something's in the Heir: Nothing is better than a glass of Chianti and some funky jazz to start off the weekend at Erato Wine Bar (3117 South Grand Boulevard; 314-664-6400). Local nu-jazz musicians Fresh Heir will begin at 9 p.m.

Saturday, 9/1

What's Cookin': Learn from Eleven Eleven and Vin de Set mastermind Ivy Magruder at the Chefs at the Market series how to not burn down your house. He'll be at the Market Courtyard at the Soulard Farmers' Market (730 Carroll Street) at 10 a.m., and you should, too -- for your family's sake.

Sweet Pee-Wee: Don a ruby red bowtie and shamelessly ride a bike with streamers for the Pee-Wee look-alike costume contest at Cinemania. The contest starts at 8:30 p.m. in a Grand Center lot (between 3713 and 3719 Washington Avenue) followed by a screening of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.

Mountain Men: Come see Denver DJs Matthew Orloff and Dennis Roseth of Twenty40 spin the night away at Dante's (3221 Olive Street). Doors open at 9 p.m.; admission $5 before 11 p.m. and $10 after.

Sunday, 9/2

In the Navy: To conclude Navy Week, sail your butt over to the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4424) to view "Magic of Flight" at the ever-so-enchanting OniMax Theatre at 1 p.m. General admission is $8 and $7 for kids and seniors; those with military ID can get in for $5.

Dance with Meaning: End the weekend with the National Dance Troupe of Nigeria at 8 p.m. at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949). General admission is $15, and UMSL students and staff pay $7. Lucky them.
