December Continues to be a Blast: Week 2 Recaps

Go directly to the December 2008 Events Calendar.

Sunday, December 7, the Green Living Expo at the Missouri History Museum was a very nice event. Several vendors were on hand to help you Green your life – your wardrobe, your home and utility costs, your gift giving and your hair care. We met Debra Small, a fabulous person and hair care professional who distributes HPO Spa Treatments.
Plus all of this is get you excited about the George Washington Carver exhibit at the Museum. Don’t wait until Black History Month when the museum is crowded with school kids to see the exhibit. See it now. It’s a great family activity. Adults: $10; Seniors/Students: $8; Children (6-12): $6. But I know a money-saving-secret. Email me to find out.

Tuesday, December 9, 2008, the Fuel Holiday Party was more like a PAR-TAY! The celebration started at Urban Eats Cafe is a delicious little nook in Dutch town. There were door prizes and plenty of delectable num-nums like quish floratine, turkey panini, and bread pudding with whiskey sauce. Ooh. You must go there; it is so affordable and the staff is friendly and happy. Plus, there is a conference room (which customers can book for free), an art gallery and Free- WIFI. Sounds like a new office space has opened up in the city. Later, the Holiday party retired upstairs to the home of the proprietors of the Café. The wine and food continued to flow. Good times.


Thursday, December 11th, the Ladies of the Fête Society enjoyed some pampering at the Salon and Spa at the Chase. See this is definitely why being in the know has its privileges. We enjoyed quality spas services – Caribbean Hand Treatment by Ms. Regina Williams, Caribbean back treatment and massage, make-up services, aromatherapy, and hair services for FREE! Yes. And they had a spread of delicious food – a cheese plate, fresh fruit, crab cakes, plus wine and champagne. Yes, FREE. Having a good time and being pampered, how can you beat that? I will be returning.

Friday, December 12, I went to Stress Free Fridays that was hosted at The Place That Must Not Be Named. I was there to celebrate the birth one our own and to check out the digs of TPTMNBN. It is a lovely place. But I doubt I’ll set foot in it again.


Saturday, December 13th we were “Walking in a Winter Wonder Land”. The US Bank presents the St. Louis Zoo Wild Lights. It is a winter exhibit of Holiday lights and activities for the family or as a cozy romantic date. It’s not too late, not just yet. The lights are up nightly December 19-23, 26-30. 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Finally have you heard since Obama has been elected as the next President of the United States that diversity at gatherings and holiday parties are all the rage? I think the article is being satirical, but as you know, the Fête Society has been about diversity all the while. Why? Because fun and networking and saving money knows no class or ethnic bounds. Plus, St. Louis offers so much great stuff to do – for a night on the town, with family, for a date, or giving back.
See you out and about soon.
