That empty feeling you get, there's nothing worse. Just when you think you've moved on, that sinking hollowness is back to haunt you. And it happens, what, like three times a day? Cure that void in your midsection at the Taste of St. Louis (, happening Friday through Sunday (October 2 through 4) at Soldiers Memorial Plaza (14th and Chestnut streets). This eatstravaganza not only serves up $2 bites from more than 40 local restaurants — including Vito's, Rearn Thai Restaurant, Monarch and Franco — but it also dishes up a helping of chef Hubert Keller on the St. Louis Bread Company Culinary Stage! Chef Keller demonstrates how to prepare a signature dish at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, but throughout the Taste, that stage is hopping with other chef demos, competitions and more. Plus, on the US Bank Main Stage, bands play — the Presidents of the United States of America rock it out on Friday night — and the festival even offers hands-on art opportunities and an International Village. Admission to the Taste is free, and you can either purchase eats individually or buy a Taste-for-Wishes Savings Card for $25, which nets you Taste discounts and a warm, fuzzy feeling for contributing to the Make a Wish Foundation.
