Shoppers meander down the aisles at Food Outlet, pausing to admire plump packages of salisbury steaks or to rifle through selections of barbecue sauces. Soon, their carts are full of groceries from top purveyors—crunchy italian breads, battered flounder fillets, and links of pork sausage. Before checking out, they visit the dessert section to select a treat from the tempting variety of pies, muffins, and pastries.

The owners of Vino Vitae welcome newcomers and connoisseurs alike to the wide world of wine appreciation. They constantly research wines, sharing bottles not typically found in the aisles of grocery stores with groups during classes and tastings held indoors at their shop's bar or, in warm weather, on an outdoor patio. Guests may learn how to describe the scent of wine using an aroma wheel, how to judge quality, and other skills.
Kakao's chocolate bars and barks, truffles, and other confections are handmade on-site and feature local ingredients, including Mattingly's beer, sunshine, and feelings. While some menacing candy makers inject artificial space-whale fat into their whale-fat pies, Kakao eschews all artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. Fresh cream, honey, and sugar create the buxom, butyraceous taste of its caramels ($6 for a four-pack), and chocolate bark ($3) is chipped off the cacao tree with an axe.
Sponsored by Auto Source St. Louis, the fourth annual Saint Louis Auto Show Charity Gala grants guests an evening of drinks, merriment, and perusal of modern chariots, with proceeds benefiting several local charities. Gala-goers can sip libations and graze on hors d'oeuvres while viewing the event's silent auction or head to the dance floor to engage in competitive toe tapping. Anytime during the event, guests can slip into the Saint Louis Auto Show to thrill oculars with views of more than 500 cars, trucks, SUVs, and concept vehicles, including luxury rides from manufacturers such as Lotus, Bentley, and Maserati. Famed performer Gerry McCambridge, whose blend of comedy and psychic intuition inspired the television show The Mentalist, reads guests' minds and misplaced grocery lists, and an after party at The Pepper Lounge keeps good times rolling until 3 a.m., all benefiting several local charities.
Planet Sub sidesteps the flavorless land mines of days-old bread, opting for filling-packed subs and sandwiched meaty delights. The Maplewood and 9th Street menu may differ slightly from other locations’ lineups, but omnipresent signature subs cross state lines to sate hungering masses, such as the bacon-bolstered mega roast beef ($4.99/$8.49) and the Planet BBQ, a saucy concoction stacked with ham, turkey, and roast beef ($4.29/$7.89). Vegetarian options abound, so meat abstainers can try the spicy cheese sub ($4.29/$7.89) or the Pesto Bello ($5.49/$8.99), which is loaded with portobello mushrooms, red peppers, and a tomato-garlic pesto as smooth and suave as an Italian R & B crooner.
