If you're a big eater, you won't go hungry at Slovak Fest
. The south-city tradition is all about hearty food, music and beer. The menu is packed with old-country favorites such as the filling holubky
(a beef-and-rice-stuffed cabbage roll) and chicken paprikash, as well as halusky
(egg dumplings and gravy) and traditional Slovak pastries. After you eat, dance it off to the music of Larry Haller's Two Star Final and Joe Polach and the St. Louis Express Band. Slovak Fest takes place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at St. Lucas Lutheran Church (7100 Morgan Ford Road; www.slovakfest.com
). Admission is free.
