Play Footgolf – April 27 – Clinton Hill Golf Course in Swansea, Ill. – Even if you don't actually know how to play, some parts of golf are inherently pretty great: after all, you get to walk around a beautiful course, enjoy the sunshine and maybe even a nice, cold adult beverage. Footgolf incorporates all of those great elements of golf without actually forcing you to use clubs! In this hip, kind of new sport, you play golf with a regulation 5 soccer ball and your leg…awesome! For more information and an entry form, go to http://bit.ly/1hqh0Vr.
Edwardsville Spring Beer Festival – April 26 – Edwardsville City Park – What better complement to a beautiful spring weekend than really, really good beer? Twenty local and national craft breweries including Civil Life, Urban Chestnut, Victory and Dogfish Head will be on-hand to give you a taste of the great things the craft beer world has to offer. You don't have to drink on an empty stomach either: Cleveland-Heath and other establishments will help insulate your stomach so you can continue imbibing. Beer sales benefit the Boy Scouts, so there's no need to feel guilty. For more information, check out http://bit.ly/1tEx3by.
Arcade Fire at Chaifetz – April 27 – Chaifetz Arena – There are still tickets available to see one of the greatest and most innovative bands of our time rock St. Louis to its very core. Rolling Stone gave Arcade Fire's newest album, "Reflektor," four and a half stars – referring to it as the band's best album to date, and similar to "turning-point classics such as U2's Achtung Baby and Radiohead's Kid A – a thrilling act of risk and renewal by a band with established commercial appeal and a greater fear of the average, of being merely liked." Tickets range from $26 to $60.50. To buy tickets, go to http://bit.ly/QzwK2T.
Watch the Cardinals – April 25 – 27 – If you haven't gotten to see our beloved Cards in person yet this season, you have three chances this weekend to see them take on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Busch Stadium. The three-game series starts on Friday at 7:15 p.m., followed by a 3:05 p.m. match-up on Saturday and the 1:15 p.m. finale on Sunday. To buy tickets, go to http://atmlb.com/1jucHzs.
Shake 38 – April 25-27 – All over the place – The man known as William Shakespeare is invading every single neighborhood in St. Louis. Each of Shakespeare's 38 plays will be performed by 38 different groups in locations throughout the city, from churches to parks to hookah bars to the St. Louis City Juvenile Detention Center (not kidding). To see which plays you can catch in your neighborhood (unfortunately, unlike the Pokemon, you probably can't "catch 'em all") head to http://bit.ly/1rndYqG.
