Welcome to Monday morning, St. Louis. Now that you've pulled yourself out of bed, been annoyed by Matt Laurers' self-referential grooming habits and spilled coffee on your lap (OK, that was only some of our mornings), here's what you may have missed over the weekend.

Perhaps best known for his 1996 parody of "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio, the singer turned out a thoroughly entertaining set on Friday night. If you missed the set or are just wondering what a Weird Al show is like in 2008, check out Ryan Wasoba's review and photos from the show.

Photographer Jason Winkeler headed out to the Grove neighborhood Saturday night and hit the bars of Manchester. At rBar, the White Hot Party was underway was a send-off to the lounge and dance club. Management at rBar says the club will reopen in a matter of weeks with an interior renovation and a new name -- AM Lounge.
