Last weekend was when I had my big spring cleaning sesh at home. It’s never something I plan in advance – when I wake up itching for a fresh start, I know it’s time to store those sweaters I haven’t worn in weeks, pull the outdoor furniture from the basement, put on a podcast and get to scrubbing.

If you’re looking for inspiration to get started on your springtime refresh, this edition of LN just might do the trick. On p. 18, columnist Alecia Humphreys takes us behind the scenes of a kitchen remodel by interior design firm Studio Sweet-Schuler. The result is beautifully airy and peaceful – the kind of place that makes me want to don a crisp white apron and bake a fresh berry tart.

Speaking of fruits – have you checked out Pantone’s color of the year, Peach Fuzz? It lives at the intersection of pink and orange and conjures feelings of all things spring. Shop some fresh additions to your wardrobe and home with peachy picks from local businesses on p. 51.

And if you’re in need of a reason to get outside and enjoy the sunshine with your little ones, Brentwood Park recently got a refresh of its own: Check out Destination Playground, an inclusive playground with immersive amenities featured by contributing writer Lauren Leady on p. 10.

Happy reading, Ashley Klein, Managing Editor

Notice an unusual bulge in your child’s abdomen or groin? It could be a hernia, or an opening in the abdominal wall that allows organs to protrude. They can be asymptomatic, but they can lead to serious problems if something – like intestines –gets stuck.

Let’s take a look at the most common types of hernias in kids and what you should know if your child is diagnosed with one.


All babies are born with some degree of an umbilical (aka “belly button”) hernia. That’s because when the umbilical cord falls off after birth, it leaves behind the space it took up. The natural course of umbilical hernias is to get smaller and close over time, so no intervention is needed unless they are still present at 4 or 5 years of age.


A baby’s testicles develop in the abdomen and descend into the scrotum late in pregnancy. After that, the opening they passed through should naturally close. Sometimes, it says open, resulting in a hernia. For this reason, inguinal hernias are much more common in boys, but they can also occur in girls. They should be repaired at the time of diagnosis.


A physical exam by a doctor is typically the only thing needed to diagnose a hernia. If your child has one, they should be referred to a pediatric surgeon. Surgery of any kind raises anxiety in parents and children, but hernia repairs are one of the most common operations I do in my practice. It’s an outpatient surgery, meaning most children go home the same day. Pain is well controlled with acetaminophen

and ibuprofen. I tell my patients to refrain from sports and strenuous activities for one to two weeks, but most kids feel back to normal in a few days. While all surgeries carry some risk, hernia repair is very safe and well-tolerated, and there is only about a 1 percent risk of the hernia coming back after surgery.

Dr. Christopher Pennell is a pediatric surgeon with Mercy Clinic Children’s Surgery. For more information, visit mercy.net/laduenews.

Even though Brentwood Park just opened last summer, the fun is just getting started. The park is unveiling a new feature: Destination Playground. Officially opened on April 6, this playground has four distinct play areas that appeal to children of all ages, including a water play feature, the adventure play zone, the family fun zone and the sound zone.

At nearly 3 acres, Destination Playground was created to provide an interactive and inclusive experience by connecting play with the natural environment for curious kids. Not only does this new and vibrant playground offer unique equipment for loads of fun, but the equipment is also ADA-compliant.

One way the playground fuses fun with a learning experience is with the water play feature. At 260 feet long, this amenity is designed to mirror the Deer Creek Watershed and is one of the longest playground water features in the region. Additionally, the playground is open just in time for the hot days of summer, and the water play feature is the perfect place for kids to cool off.

experience. The side-by-side zip line extends 110 feet, so kids can share the fun with friends and family.

Over in the playground’s family fun zone, guests can find exciting amenities for kids and people of all ages to play on. Some equipment includes a circular climbing structure, a wobbly balance beam, two hillside roller slides and three swing bays with six swings total.

For those looking to make some music while playing at the park, the sound zone features several musical instruments, including chimes, bells, bongos and a steel drum.

Construction began on the Destination Playground in November 2022 and has been well worth the wait.

“We are so thrilled that after so much time and hard work, we are going to be able to share this labor of love with the public,” Michelle Boyer, communications manager for the City of Brentwood, says. “It is sure to be an exciting summer in Brentwood with our new park and playground officially open!”

The adventure play zone contains a wooden treehouse, a zipline and a teeter-totter swing that provides children with a special outdoor

Bedtime Giggles

Choosing a children’s book for storytime can be harder than you think. Young children are first drawn to bright colors and engaging illustrations that beg to be inspected more closely. Adults are often looking for an underlying message, one that helps spark timely conversations about issues affecting their family or the world. But one aspect of children’s literature that appeals to just about anyone is humor! If your family enjoys a good laugh, often at the expense of the grown-ups portrayed, Ready Readers recommends “Not That Pet!” by author Smriti Prasadam-Halls and illustrator Rosalind Beardshaw.

The story begins with a suburban mom and two adorable tykes walking to the pet store. A sign in the window promises “Any pet you like delivered to your door,” foreshadowing questionable decisions to come. Innocently, the mom opens the door to a parenting nightmare with the statement, “Mabel, YOU choose which [pet] to get.” The preschooler and her younger brother gleefully survey the shop, contemplating the possibilities. Turning the page, readers are surprised

to find a baby elephant emerging from a cardboard box delivered to the family’s home, to the awe and delight of the children. The mother seems unfazed, and the delivery driver’s expression tells us this isn’t his first pet rodeo. So begins a parade of not-so-smart pet choices, each one delighting the youngsters, but mildly terrorizing the extended family of adults portrayed.

Prasadam-Halls’ humorous rhyming text succinctly leads readers from one silly choice to the next, and pairs beautifully with Beardshaw’s brightly colored, but deeply layered and detailed, digital illustrations. Beardshaw’s humor shines through as readers note the humans’ and animals’ facial expressions as they encounter each new pet, from the baby elephant to the final unusual choice at the end.

Ready Readers shares the joy and power of literacy with more than 15,000 children from economically suppressed neighborhoods across our region, providing new books, literacy experiences and caring relationships built through shared story times. Visit readyreaders.org to learn more and get involved.

Celebratin 90 YEARS

Variety St. Louis recently celebrated 90 years of work dedicated to improving the lives and livelihoods of children with disabilities. The charity’s services vary depending on need, offering therapy services, recreation opportunities and even essential medical equipment. Although much has changed throughout those nine-plus decades, one thing has remained the same: the organization’s commitment to the people it serves.

“When I step back and look at it, [I feel] validation,” Variety St. Louis CEO Brian Roy says. “The trust that we’ve earned with the families to be able to provide meaningful and life-changing impact for that long – there’s not a lot of organizations that make it that long. But just as importantly, it’s about community.”

Founded in 1933, Variety St. Louis is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that empowers children with special needs by providing important medical equipment like wheelchairs, prosthetics and walkers as well as access to innovative programming, therapy, performing arts and more. Variety provides services to kids from birth to age 21.

The organization was originally founded as a social club. It hosted big galas and events to raise money for families in need and has evolved to meet the ever-changing landscape of treatment. Much has changed since the 1930s, particularly in how kids with special needs are diagnosed and treated. Due to advancements in research and technology, doctors can more easily diagnose conditions like autism and Down syndrome – and identify them earlier, too.

“‘Disability’ always has a negative connotation. It’s not ‘disability,’ it’s

‘different ability,’” Roy says. “You’ve got to redefine that. And when you do, the family’s expectations change, and the community’s expectations change. That’s been a driving force for us.”

One of Variety’s biggest initiatives in 2024 is providing medical equipment to kids in need. Last year alone, the organization provided more than 2.2 million hours of medical equipment usage. This is in addition to 3,942 hours of therapy and 3,638 hours of performing arts instruction from professional local artists.

“You don’t have to look too far within families to know someone who is dealing with those challenges and then realizes the need,” Roy says. “We go back to the medical equipment and the unaffordability of it. If you know someone who’s had to fight to get what they need, I think that’s a powerful motivation.”

To thrive for another 90 years, Roy says the nonprofit aims to greatly increase its capacity – particularly as treatment costs rise and demand hits record highs. But Variety will continue to rely on a strong network of private and corporate donors as well as (more recently) public funding, because it cares as much as St. Louis cares. And that makes all the difference.

“We wouldn’t be here without that generosity and it being important to the community,” Roy says. “And I think that’s something that’s unique to St. Louis. You don’t find that everywhere.”

Opulent & Organic

Atransformation as major as turning a cramped, outdated kitchen into an airy, modern space may have been daunting to some, but Lauren Sweet-Schuler, founding partner at Studio Sweet Schuler, was up to the challenge.

“The original kitchen was by far the smallest we had ever attempted to renovate,” SweetSchuler says. “However, the original floor plan had not only a small kitchen, but also a small separate breakfast room and a secondary back staircase that separated the kitchen from the dining room that was not often used or necessary. This allowed architects to remove that back stair, eliminate the breakfast room and create a larger kitchen that opens up to the dining room.”

Sweet-Schuler says the white inset cabinetry, courtesy of Accent on Cabinets in Chesterfield, served as an aesthetic starting point.

“The beauty of the lines and the streamlined feel of this classic kitchen cabinet style was intentionally mixed with the handmade backsplash tiles that are perfectly imperfect,” Sweet-Schuler says. “The aesthetic was inspired by classic traditional details with organic elements mixed in for a sense of comfort and ease to the space. It was important that the new spaces felt like a continuation of the existing classic colonial style of the home.”

It’s those organic elements, beautifully blended with more formal details, that made this space so marvelous.

“Examples of this mix are the custom stainless steel and brass hood with handmade tiles behind it, and how the quartzite countertops mix with the cast iron sink that sits on a walnut slab,” Sweet-Schuler says.

Out of all the elements, though, SweetSchuler says her favorite part of the renovation was a special customization made to suit the family, who loves to bake.

“One of our favorite components of this

kitchen is the small cabinet that is used for specialty flours, sugars and pastas,” she says. “It was a corner of the kitchen that was a bit of a challenge to design, but the outcome is so beautiful and perfect for the space. The inside of the white painted cabinet is finished in walnut to match the island and the hardware is a brass decorative cremone bolt, which is such a great detail that the homeowner had envisioned.”

Above a glittery pink bar top, the slogan displayed in a retro-style marquee, “This ain’t no disco, ain’t no country club either,” sums up the fun-loving atmosphere at Hidden Gem, Midtown’s sparkly new cocktail bar. The spot debuted last December next door to its sibling business, Golden Gems.

Sisters Susan Logsdon and Amanda Helman founded Golden Gems – a lifestyle brand that specializes in empowering gifts for women – in 2016 as an Etsy shop and established its first brick-and-mortar location two years later. “We had a spot on Cherokee Street and grew our brand from there,” Logsdon says. “Our message is to live unapologetically and take up space, and our products are just reminders of that. It’s okay to be yourself and be loud or quiet or whatever it is. Just be you.”

When the storefront two doors down from Golden Gems’ flagship location became available, the sisters knew they’d found the space to realize their vision. “Part of our business over the years has been creating events and experiences within our retail stores to bring people together,”

Logsdon says. “We’ve done tattoo events, sexual wellness and education events, different panel discussions and group activities. Everything kind of led to opening up the bar and being able to have this space here where we can just bring in more people and host more events.”

The 3,500-square-foot, 150-seat space features the fruits of the sisters’ creative labor, including the careful placement of 300 shimmering disco balls throughout the bar. “The aesthetic is disco with the non-pretentious attitude of a neighborhood dive,” Logsdon explains.

From the drink menu, choose from playful takes on classics such as the Gay Water, with vodka, fresh lime juice, club soda, a splash of cranberry and a rainbow candy garnish. “We’re not going to look down on you for what you order,” Helman says. “You can get a really great craft cocktail here or you can get a Stag. There are also great non-alcoholic options.”

Specials include a disco gin bucket (which serves up to six) with lemon, lime and orange juices, Fresca, lemon-lime soda and a citrus garnish. “We’re big gin people and have a lot

of gin drinks we love,” Helman says. Logsdon’s favorite drink is their gin and tonic. “You can pick your choice of housemade syrups like blackberry basil honey, blueberry sage and mango,” she says.

Guests can cozy up to their cocktails in a comfortable pink booth or in the kaleidoscopic carpeted upstairs lounge, which the sisters have dubbed the conversation pit. Get-togethers at the bar include everything from drag bingo and pop culture trivia nights to DJs on Saturdays and themed dance parties.

“We’re really excited to be able to create a safe, inclusive space to bring more people in, and we’ve already seen a really cool, unique community of people forming here,” Logsdon says. “It’s really fun and we’re looking forward to bringing in more events. The ideas are already flowing.”

Hidden Gem is open Tuesday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.

t the 11th annual St. Louis Theater Circle Awards, Chauncy Thomas was announced winner for Outstanding Supporting Performer in a Drama, Male or Non-Binary Role for his portrayal of Biff Loman in The Black Rep’s production of “Death of a Salesman.” He bounded onto the stage in delight, accepted the award from the presenter and thanked the many people who taught, nurtured, supported and loved him since he first caught the acting bug. He named numerous teachers, colleagues and relatives in an acceptance speech that continued until the moderator cued the background pianist to signal an end to Thomas’ monologue.

Thomas wasn’t finished, though. He laughed upon hearing the music, then said he was going to keep thanking people. After a second interruption a little later, he left the stage, but promised with a smile that he’d still be appreciating everyone in his life far beyond his appearance at the podium.

That spontaneous, refreshing moment of sheer happiness underscores the mission of the St. Louis Theater Circle: To honor the best in local professional theater for the previous calendar year. There are approximately three dozen local professional theater troupes in metro St. Louis, from the venerable Muny with its 11,000-seat amphitheater in Forest Park to

smaller companies that perform in church basements or side rooms at area pubs.

For the calendar year 2023, more than 100 local professional productions (where at least some performers and back-stage artists are paid a stipend for their services) were considered for the Circle’s 33 categories, which include comedies, dramas, musicals and operas. This year’s gala, which was held Monday, March 25 at the Loretto-Hilton Center on the campus of Webster University – home of The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis – presented 34 awards, including a tie in the category of Outstanding Supporting Performer in a Comedy, Female or Non-Binary Role.

More than 250 people attended the festive event, which was preceded with a happy hour in The Rep’s lobby. Like the Oscars, the Tonys and other award ceremonies, many of the people in the audience were nominees, which numbered five per category.

This year’s big winners were the New Jewish Theatre, which took home six awards, followed by Stages St. Louis, The Rep, and The Black Rep, each with five wins apiece. Productions taking home the most prizes were New Jewish Theatre’s version of the musical, “Into the Woods,” Stages’ eye-popping presentation of the comedy, “Clue” and The Black Rep’s poignant rendition of the classic drama, “Death of a Salesman.”

The St. Louis Theater Circle is comprised of critics from Ladue News (Mark Bretz), The Riverfront Times (Tina Farmer), HEC Media (Bob Wilcox and Gerry Kowarsky of “Two on the Aisle”), Pop Life STL (Lynn Venhaus and Chas Adams), KDHX (Chuck Lavazzi), Broadway World (James Lindhorst) and the Snoop’s Theatre Thoughts blog (Michelle Kenyon).

Names of all the nominees and winners in this year’s categories can be seen at the Theater Circle’s website, www.stltheatercircle.org.

Disability Awareness Convention

In March, the Arya Foundation hosted its free Disability Awareness Convention in Chesterfield at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel St. Louis. Those in attendance perused vendor booths and viewed presentations about housing and funding, adaptive tricycles and transitioning to adulthood – all focused on children with disabilities, whose empowerment is at the center of the nonprofit organization’s mission. Children in attendance also had a blast as they danced with a cartoon dog named Bluey, played with toys and enjoyed a musical theater performance and lunch.

Founded in 2014 to honor the memory of Arya Kokate –daughter to co-founders Sunanda Dhananjay and Dhananjay Kokate and sister to co-founder AJ Kokate – the Arya Foundation is a 100 percent volunteer-run collective. Ninety percent of its individual donations go directly to providing adaptive equipment and services to children with disabilities.

The Disability Awareness Convention brought together people from all walks of life to celebrate diversity and promote awareness about disabilities. The powerful discussions, inspiring stories and informative workshops showcased the strength and resilience of individuals with disabilities. It was a reminder that we are all unique and capable of making a positive impact in the world.

“Swing for Tomorrow’s Stars” Gala

In early spring, Jazz St. Louis held its “Swing for Tomorrow’s Stars” Gala at the Royal Sonesta Chase Park Plaza Hotel, where VIP guests were welcomed with a cocktail hour and dinner at the Starlight Ballroom overlooking Forest Park. Attendees then moved to the Khorassan Ballroom to hear performances by brothers Branford and Wynton Marsalis; following the musical performance, Grammy award-winning St. Louisan David Sanborn was honored with Jazz St. Louis’ inaugural Steward Center Lifetime Achievement Award in Excellence.

Since 1995, Jazz St. Louis has strived to preserve the diverse facets of jazz as well as fund area education programs that give artists a platform and creative outlet –whether they are up-and-coming regional acts or internationally recognized names.

It was an honor to bring a performance of this stature to St. Louis. To have Branford and Wynton perform, to recognize David Sanborn with our first lifetime achievement award and to have Joe Torry serve as a fantastic emcee, this event will be hard to top! Most importantly, we raised crucial funds to support our educational programs which are at the heart of Jazz St. Louis, so I am immensely proud of what we achieved. I would like to thank [everyone] who helped make this historic event so special.

Women’s History Month Discussion

FOCUS St. Louis hosted its Women’s History Month Discussion at the Missouri Athletic Club in downtown St. Louis in March, which is Women’s History Month.

More than 300 guests mingled and networked while enjoying breakfast. Soon after, everyone settled in for an inspiring panel discussion, in which panelists spoke about their life experiences and offered the audience candid advice. Panelists included moderator and FOCUS St. Louis’ director of leadership Shaila Ford; FleishmanHillard’s senior vice president and senior partner Ruth Kim; Renaissance Financial’s community partnership director Natasha Leonard; Nestlé Purina North America’s director of partnerships marketing Angela Minges; and Advantage Capital’s managing director and chief impact officer Sandra M. Moore.

The theme of FOCUS St. Louis’ Women’s History Breakfast was ‘She Inspires!’ this year. I think our [sold-out] crowd shows just how much leaders are seeking opportunities like this for authentic conversations, inspiring stories and meaningful connections, and FOCUS is happy to bring them to our community.

Curating a uniqueart collectionmay seemintimidatingatfirst.However, with guidancefromlocal experts,itdoesn’t have tobe. Here’swhat youneedtoknow before divingintothe worldofart collection.

“Myadviceforsomeonewantingtostart collectingartistostartsmall,”saysZackaryPetot, theexecutiveandartisticdirectoroftheSt.Louis Artists’Guild.“Figuringoutwhatyourbudgetis willhelpyougaugewhatyoucanaffordtobuy.”

P etotencourages exploringareanonprofit art g alleriestofindaffordablepiecesmadeby localartists.

“Visitinglocalnonprofit galleriescanbe a great way to[find]thatunique, one-of-a-kind piecefor your collection,” hesays.“Plus,many oftheseorganizations’ exhibitions change severaltimes ayear, andbringnew artintotheir spaces frequently.”

LynnBozzay,whoco-ownsGraficaFineArt &CustomFraminginWebsterGroveswithLary Bozzay,suggeststhatthefoundationofany collectionshouldberootedinpersonalpassion.

If you love it, buy it. Frame it and put it up so you can enjoy it! Art is in the eye of the beholder. If something makes you happy, you can become a collector.
– Lynn Bozzay

the concrete jungle of the city?” Petot says. “Once you have those interests down, I always look at the presentation of the work. Does the work come framed? How will I display this in my home? Is there any regular cleaning care for the piece? These all factor into whether I purchase a piece.”

For Bozzay, collecting is primarily guided by a deep affection for individual pieces.

“Mostly the image draws our attention, and we just want it,” Bozzay says. “It may evoke an emotion or a memory that you can enjoy every time you look at it. Sometimes there’s a story to go with the purchase, [and we] remember a trip or something that happened.”

Beyond the personal gratification of collecting art, there’s also a broader impact on the artistic community.

“Artists love to make, and it is not cheap to make these wonderful, one-of-a-kind pieces,” Petot says. “So, every purchase helps support that artist to continue their mission and art practice. While the purchase helps the artist, you are also helping keep the gallery in business to continue to offer artists a place to exhibit their work. These institutions are crucial for artists. If

work doesn’t sell, that means the gallery could close its doors, eliminating a potential space for artists to reach a buying community.”

That’s why prioritizing local purchases whenever possible is crucial for St. Louis’ art community.

“The St. Louis Artists’ Guild, Houska Gallery, Bruno David Gallery, Craft Alliance, Art Saint Louis, Green Door [Art] Gallery and Duane Reed Gallery are just a few local galleries that have wonderful options for those looking to start their collection,” Petot says.

Bozzay encourages visiting Grafica in addition to Green Door Art Gallery, and recommends scoping some of St. Louis’ art fairs.

“St. Louis has lots of terrific art fairs,” Bozzay says. “They’re great because you can meet the artists and have a story to go with your art.”
