Art: It's What's For Dinner 

Marie Antoinette had things all wrong. Rather than saying the suffering peasants should eat cake, she should have encouraged them to dine on art instead. You know, cake might have tasted better, but art is a better investment. Plus, it's easy on the eyes. To give your peepers a treat, check out the Let Them Eat Art festival from 6 to 11 p.m. along Manchester Road in Maplewood and all around the municipality. At this free outdoor party, expect to see live art demonstrations, belly dancers, a fire-shooting ice-cream truck (!), excellent costumes (there's a contest), live music and much more. (And if you're actually hungry, feel free to duck into one of Maplewood's many eateries, including Monarch and Acero.) To learn more about the artful affair, call city hall at 314-645-3600 or visit
