There are few guarantees in life, but St. Louis having its share of sweltering summer days can almost always be assured. Luckily, our town is stocked with shops serving up tasty, frozen goodness – the perfect answer for surviving the sizzle. Institutions like Ted Drewes (6726 Chippewa, St. Louis, MO, 63109 and 4224 S. Grand, St. Louis, MO, 63111) and Fritz’s Frozen Custard (1055 St. Catherine, Florissant, MO, 63031; additional locations in West County, St. Peters, Wentzville and O’Fallon, MO) have been delighting for decades, but “shake” up your routine with a visit to one of these cool spots.
Whether it's sinless frozen yogurt or oh-so-decadent frozen custard, families are sure to enjoy treats from these local hangouts. And with bottleworks, exploding snow cones and build-your-own sundaes, getting a frozen treat can be just as adventurous as it is delicious.

St. Louis weather can be fickle, but we certainly have our share of beautiful days to enjoy. Knowing that sunshine and mild temps can be here one day, gone the next, you’ll want to be prepared to take full advantage of those stunners when you simply must dine outdoors. Here are a few highlights of places you can try and bring the kids along, too.

Mom. She does a million things for everybody, all the time, so doesn’t she deserve a little break? Luckily, there’s a wide array of places offering Mother’s Day Brunch specials sure to make mom feel just that: special! Here’s just a sampling of events celebrating these wonderful ladies on Sunday, May 14. Plan ahead, as advance reservations are a must for this popular holiday (and more often than not are required). The best part of it all? They not only cook for you, but they also clean up after!
