The uniformed technicians of SuperGlass Windshield Repair specialize in mobile windshield and auto-glass repair, mending cracks and divots in as quickly as 20 minutes.

Its technicians also keep scrapped glass out of landfills, and subsequently reduce the carbon emissions from manufacturing new automotive glass. This vision has guided the company from its roots in Georgia to an international operation with franchises throughout the United States, Canada, France, Germany, and South Korea. Beyond repairing fractures, techs also fill in scratches, apply WaterShield water repellant, and restore acrylic headlights dulled after years of contact with UV rays, cleaning solvents, and hood ornaments shaped like interrogators.
At Pottery Hollow, kids and adults alike find inspiration to create ceramic works of art from a fanciful story about a potter in need of an apprentice to help him and his fairy friends adorn ceramic mugs, platters, and knickknacks with colorful paint. Guests enter the potter's enchanted hollow—complete with twisted tree trunks and brightly colored chairs—to work on the unpainted pieces stored deep beneath the forest. While guests create their masterpieces, staffers keep them supplied with paints and brushes and take finished pieces to be baked in the kiln.
In addition to walk-in sessions, Pottery Hollow's three locations host parties and events such as mommy-and-me sessions, bridal showers, and corporate events. And on Friday nights until 9 p.m., ladies can create beautiful works of art while sipping on their favorite BYOB drinks. Staffers also craft custom pieces in less than a week, which can be given as gifts, kept as future heirlooms, or offered as sacrifices to the home-decor gods.
Historic, picturesque Laclede's Landing is the backdrop for the "Kick It On The Cobblestones" block party, a fundraising event for area youth-sports organizations. In keeping with the sports theme, participants can enter for a chance to win tickets to the soccer game between Real Madrid and Inter Milan at the Edward Jones Dome at 1 p.m., and youngsters can compete in soccer challenges in the hopes of winning prizes. The full-day event isn't just about sports, though. Crowds can boogie to live tunes by R&B-tinged rockers Dirty Muggs and eclectic quintet El Scorcho. They can also wield their tickets for discounts at area establishments all weekend, including $3 off adult admission at the Wax Museum, a free handcrafted beer with lunch or dinner at Morgan Street Brewery, and half off apparel at other local businesses.
