Renner’s work is delightfully exuberant and vibrant. Check out his tributes to some of the Jazz greats you know and love.

Lovely live jazz piano with Curt Landes, known as Gaptoof to some, will be featured on the /Urban Eats stage. Live music will run from 12:00 to 2:00 PM.

In conjunction with the Art show, Urban Eats Café will offer a specially priced menu items: we'll be tipping our hats to New Orleans with some Red Beans, Rice and Cornbread and Bread Pudding with Meringue & Chocolate Sauce, ala Emeril Lagasse.

Top it off with a Glamour Girl Cocktail (Apricot Brandy, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pomegranate-Cran Juice) and you' be floating in the Big Easy, right here in St Louis. It’s first come, first served, no reservations are required.

The Urban Arts Collective Project is an ongoing partnership with rotating artists who display their work in the Urban Arts Collective space, adjacent to the Urban Eats Café. The goal is to create awareness for both the artists, the development of the Urban Eats Café as a community reinvention project and the historic Dutchtown South City neighborhood.

Very cool. Super cool. Wish I could be there. Love the Dizzy Gillespie too. Any event you send me by Thursday of the week before it happens, has a good chance of being posted in my highLIGHTS with the WORDwitch. I love sharing, serving the community inasmuch as this mom of 4 can.
