On Saturday, August 13, the annual Grub & Groove
provided a thrilling oasis for St. Louisans limping through the dog days of summer. Kicking off its eleventh year in Francis Park, Grub & Groove is a free event showcasing the best food and music from the St. Louis Hills area. There was no lack of merriment. Visitors swarmed Food Row and indulged in dishes from local restaurants. Others clustered around every shady tree, lawn chairs in tow, while jamming to their favorite local bands playing on the main stage. Moms and dads marveled with their littles at the many glories of the Kids Zone, which was (literally) bubbling with excitement. Lastly, an exhilarating fireworks show made the perfect nightcap for an event marked by good eats, good beats and good community.
