EDITOR ‌MY FAMILY AND I RECENTLY TOOK A WEEKEND TRIP TO Kentucky. Although our Airbnb house was a dream all around, my favorite part was the refrigerator. Yes, you read that correctly: the refrigerator. It had a touch-screen interface that allowed my son to doodle, made it easy for us to play our favorite music – anyone else love a good kitchen dance party!? – and, of course, refrigerated our food. This experience seemed fitting, given that we’re sharing the story of the metro area’s own luxury appliance store this week. Starting on p. 22 in our Abode section, learn more about Roth Living, which stocks approximately 150 appliances in its showroom and offers another 5,000 available for ordering to make your kitchen state-of-the-art (and exactly like that getaway you envy). Also in this week’s edition, be sure to check out LN copy editor and staff writer Bryan A. Hollerbach’s story on Forest & Meadow Apothecary and Herbal Clinic. Founder Amanda Jokerst combines a unique blend of research-based and traditional herbal medicine and more to help you heal and feel your best. We hope you enjoy learning about her expertise, starting on p. 41 in The Daily. All the best,

L

aurie’s Shoes has been serving the St. Louis community for more than 60 years. Opened in 1951, this fourth generation family business has a clientele as large and ever-growing as the selection of shoes it holds. Including some that have been coming in for nearly as long as the store has been around. “I’ve worked with some of the same customers for three generations,” says Mark Waldman, who runs Laurie’s Shoes with his two siblings. “I’ve also recently had clients that were their grandkids and even great-grandkids.” The success of Laurie’s Shoes – which brings in new clientele as much as it retains its longtime customers – comes from their ability to hold on to the commitment to each client that comes from a small family-run storefront, while still bringing in the most brands and the newest technology. Waldman describes working at Laurie’s Shoes like running a large corporation in size with the same caring and concern for the customer as a mom and pop shop from the 50s and 60s. “Everyone who works for us is like family,” he says. “There’s a real family atmosphere.” As a family business, Laurie’s Shoes has grown with every new generation. “We’re not relying on tradition alone. What we do is pick up and hold on to the best of those traditional values while we grow,” Waldman explains. “We have associates

that bring in new things that make us the place to go to. We’re bringing in the best selection and the best technology and holding to the individual care for our customers.” The latest technology in fashion and comfort is what makes it so easy for customers to come in and get fitted for exactly the shoes they’re looking for. “We match the footwear for their specific needs,” Waldman says. “If they’re going on a hiking trip in Colorado to walking the streets of Italy to dressy evenings and cocktail parties – we match customer demands.” Laurie’s Shoes doesn’t just provide an excellent and varied selection, they also have Certified Pedorthists who will measure customers’ feet and ensure them the best fit for their money. On top of their local presence, their stores also service more than 150 hospitals in five states with their shoes. The goal, according to Waldman, is grow into the future without ever sacrificing the personal touch that has kept clients coming in. “We take care of our customers,” he concludes. “We want to bring in new clients and keep them coming in for generations.” Laurie’s Shoes, Glendale - 9916 Manchester Road, 314-961-1642, laurieshoes.com; Birkenstock & More, 12350 Olive Blvd., 314-434-4430, birkenstockstl.com; Laurie’s Etc, 1451 St Louis Galleria, 314-862-7463

Adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer patients range from 15 – 30 years of age.

This new suite will feature quiet pods for patients to rest and a large “hang-out” area. The space will also feature comfort and convenience amenities as well as fun activities like a freestanding video or pinball game. All of the features are designed to optimize the environment in which these patients will receive treatment, rest and recover. “This unique setting will be ideal for our individualized patient and family-centric approach of care,” said Dr. Rob Hanson, Mercy Hematologist Oncologist.

Fathers’ Support Center

A TOAST TO FATHERS Photos and story by Jon Gitchoff

F

athers’ Support Center celebrated 21 years of doing just that – supporting fathers and children alike – in the metro area with A Toast to Fathers in June in The Grand Hall inside St. Louis’ landmark Union Station. In those 21 years, the organization locally has served more than 16,000 fathers and more than 45,000 children. In addition to celebrating fathers, the gala annual dinner serves as a vital source for educating the area about the impact of the center’s programs.

It is about educating St. Louis and the entire state on who we are and who we impact. The agency was created to impact outcomes for children. We’ve been in business for 21 years now, and we’ve served over 16,000 fathers, which translates to impacting over 45,000 children in the St. Louis community.

The Worlds Away


LANDSCAPE

Dancing IN THE

RAIN

By Pat Raven, Ph.D., with Julie Hess

‌A

few weeks ago, we had an unexpected monsoon. The storm blew through during the night, with thunder and lightning accompanied by a long, heavy deluge. Flash flood warnings dinged my cellphone and were broadcast by local weather forecasters. In the morning, while walking the dogs in my garden, I noticed the “dry stream” there had 2 inches of water flowing through it, and a previously empty basin contained nearly 6 inches of fresh, clear rainwater. Farther down the hill, deep rivulets had cut through the mulch and washed serious gouges in the gravel trail. Despite recent drainage improvements on my part, damages to the landscape were significant. Stormwater management is becoming more important for our landscapes as climate change alters local rainfall patterns. We are experiencing more intense storms with short but heavy rainfall. So prepare your garden for the future by creatively addressing water flow now. Preventing erosion and managing mosquitos constitute short-term local benefits, but excellence in runoff management affects stream biodiversity and downstream water quality, and can help reduce flash floods. In that regard, the next time a heavy rain falls, put on your waders and grab an umbrella. Walk your property to see where the water’s going. Do you have overflowing gutters, puddles of standing water, sheets cascading off your driveway or streams inundating your downhill neighbor? Rainwater management primarily seeks to slow such water down, get it to soak into the ground, capture it when possible and keep as much as you can on your own property. Otherwise, consider these steps for stormwater management: „„Inspect your property after every major storm for erosion, and repair the damage quickly to prevent increasing damage. „„Replace downspouts with Japanese rain chains, where appropriate, to slow the flow rate of rooftop water. „„Add decorative pebble aprons to downspout outfalls to slow runoff and prevent washing. „„Use rain barrels to collect and store fresh rainwater. „„Create dry streams with rock weirs or bio-swales to direct and slow storm runoff. „„Reduce compacted lawn areas, and replace them

with moisture-absorbing mulched beds. „„Plant more trees and shrubs, which make great natural filters. „„Add a rain garden to slow and filter flow and add seasonal color. „„Make any new paving projects with waterpermeable materials. Karla Wilson – manager of the Deer Creek Watershed Alliance, a cooperative program based at the Missouri Botanical Garden with dozens of partners, including Ladue – says that although large rain events like this recent inundation are best addressed by good public policy and planning, the actions of all property owners make a difference. “Every drop of rain that goes into the ground instead of running off will improve the health of the entire watershed,” Wilson says. In addition to basic rainscaping, she strongly recommends removal of invasive bush

honeysuckle now to prevent future soil erosion. To learn more about rain gardens and community watershed management, email the Deer Creek Watershed Alliance at info@deercreekalliance.org, or read “Rainscaping Guide” in the Water Quality subsection of the Sustainable Living at Home section of the Missouri Botanical Garden’s website, at mobot.org/rainscaping.

Roth Living’s showroom brings refined and sophisticated luxury appliances to the heart of clayton.

I

nnovative and streamlined design is at the forefront of Roth Living – and shoppers will have the chance to experience that, and more, firsthand after visiting its showroom on Clayton Road. Founded in 1960, Roth Living has been the exclusive regional distributor for high-end appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf, Cove, ASKO and Best in St. Louis since 2002. “We picked our location because many of our clientele that purchases our products live within a short radius of that showroom,” says Denise Knoblich, vice president of marketing for Roth Living. “That keeps it really accessible for the consumer base. Plus, inside, we do a lot of things that make it consumer-centric.”

LadueNews.com | august 2019 LadueNews.com | August 16,16, 2019    2300


Inside the St. Louis showroom, there are seven kitchen displays that showcase approximately 150 appliances. Two kitchens are even functional – spaces that form what Knoblich calls the culinary center. “The culinary center is an interactive space where we can bring consumers in – we have our own executive chef on staff – to help people either learn about the products while they are shopping and to make an educated decision,” she says. “Some consumers have already purchased their appliances and want to learn how to use the appliances. Roth Living caters to their consumers pre- and post-sale.” In addition to the physical displays, the showroom features a digital wall – specifically, a 9- by 16-foot screen – where consumers can curate their appliance selections and view their curated appliance package. “In a 5,000-square-foot showroom, we can’t show every model, but what we can do is use our custom app to communicate every model digitally and project to life size on the 9- by 16-foot screen,” Knoblich says. In essence, the possibilities are endless. “Between Sub-Zero, Wolf, Cove, ASKO and Best appliances, we offer over a thousand different options and endless combinations to personalize a kitchen,” Knoblich says. “It’s kind of exponential how many parts and pieces we have … It really is a personalized appliance selection.” Such a plethora of options can be intimidating. However, Knoblich promises Roth Living’s appliance specialists are eager to aid in the process.

“We help each customer define what they want for their space because there is so much information,” she says. “Our appliance experts can help clients customize their appliance package based on their needs and distill it down to a package the designer or builder can integrate into their home.” A quick glance at Roth Living’s website, Facebook or Instagram pages is sure to send your imagination – and

24   August 2019 | LadueNews.com august 16, 2019 | LadueNews.com

dreams for your space – soaring. From rustic to modern to clean and crisp, to a personal chef’s dream, Roth Living has assisted in creating it all. “The app has changed how clients select their package, and at the end of their visit, they get a full quote with details about their appliance choices,” Knoblich says. “They can then meet with their designer, builder, whoever their design team is … we send the quote to that part of the team to help them customize their home. It helps to become more collaborative, so everyone is on the same page. After all, you can’t do plumbing, electrical, cabinetry, countertops until you really decide what [appliances] are we designing in?” Although Roth Living’s features speak for themselves, Knoblich says the specialist experience is what truly sets Roth Living apart from all other appliance dealers. “Roth Living offers a premier service experience,” she says. “We help people come into the showroom and give them an opportunity to become familiar and comfortable with the appliances they purchase. In addition, we have our own installation company with factoryauthorized installers. Our customer service team can assist pre- or post-sale. We want them to feel like they have the best consumer experience possible.” Roth Living, 7800 Clayton Road, St. Louis, 314-991-0900, rothliving.com

Founder Betsy Nacrelli shares that Collections by Joya recently launched its fall collection, is expanding its line with HSN and Nordstrom, and even has plans to launch a new fine jewelry collection – Joya Atelier – just in time for the holiday season! LN caught up with Nacrelli to learn more about Joya’s fall lineup. You just launched your fall collection – how exciting! What kind of products should we expect to see? We’ve featured stunning natural gemstones – including many new and exciting colors, countless new additions to our signature Deco Diamond collection, updated takes on Joya perennial favorites and a lovely array of delicate layering necklaces – just to name a few! What inspired the curation of line? Our fall ’19 collection was inspired by our love of travel – specifically, a recent and wonderful trip to Florence, Italy, fueled our imagination for this line. Many of the pieces in the Joya collection are inspired by original antiques, some family-owned and some found abroad, and we work diligently to ensure authenticity in finish and design is at the core of every piece in the line. What is your favorite product in the line? Why? Our Deco Diamond collection is something that I am so very proud of and passionate about! This is our own exclusive, unique process that we developed. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind work of mosaic art created by our artisans, who hand-select and hand-set each real diamond fragment, which creates a unique, subtle sparkle. These pieces are truly gorgeous, affordable luxury. Always a conversation-starter whenever I wear them! Is there an underlying theme for fall? With this collection, we devoted a lot of time and thought into creating pieces with intention and meaning. You’ll find beautifully delicate medallion necklaces and earrings adorned with the celestial signs – the tree of life, a compass, a butterfly, an anchor and many more. These very personal pieces are absolutely on-trend and perfect for layering or to wear alone. We were also very inspired by the rich jewel tones of antique velvet that we saw during our recent trip to Italy. You can see our interpretation of these colors in our deep blue lapis, our smoky topaz, our rich green

The Big One

‌F

riends in Southern California had a big scare recently when that area experienced its most severe earthquakes in decades. Fortunately, despite all the jolts and aftershocks, no one was killed, and apparently, there was little major damage to the infrastructure. When I heard the news about the quakes, I immediately thought back to October 17, 1989. That was the day the San Francisco Bay Area was hit with a magnitude 6.9 earthquake. As much of the rest of America watched on television bridges and highways collapsed, buildings crumbled, and lives were shattered. In only 15 seconds, 63 people died and nearly 4,000 others were injured. Back then, I was a doctoral student in Oklahoma, far removed from the catastrophe in San Francisco. Yet that event affected me deeply. So many tragedies, no clear pattern, no consistent explanation for why some people lost everything, including their lives. It was just the work of nature, the melody of uncertainty, the song of change. One year later, residents throughout the Mississippi Valley waited in fear that “the big one” was about to happen along the New Madrid Seismic Zone – roughly 170 miles southeast of Ladue. Thankfully, it never came to pass.

What these events did, however, was raise our collective consciousness about Mother Nature and the fragility of our existence. In the blink of an eye, life can change for so many people, leaving physical and emotional scars that may last a lifetime. People, myself included, began to realize that this could happen to us, and now, 30 years later, we have made significant improvements in building codes and infrastructure reinforcements. The fact that the damage from a 6.9-level earthquake in Southern California was limited suggests that we are paying attention and responding in positive ways. Even more important are the human stories that events like these bring to the front. Thirty years ago, I saw people coming together, helping each other in times of need. It was a unique display of the haves and the have-nots together sharing. One of the most popular new musicals on Broadway today, Come From Away, also played in St. Louis in May at The Fabulous Fox Theatre. It tells the tale of the residents of Gander, Newfoundland, who opened their town, their homes and their hearts to more than 7,000 airline travelers who were grounded there following the terrible events of Sept. 11, 2001. Like the people by the Bay, they leaned on one another and pulled together.

By Dr. Benjamin Ola. Akande For five days, the Newfoundlanders showed that love and compassion can always triumph over tragedy and disaster. Whether because of a natural disaster or a manmade catastrophe – an earthquake, a tsunami, a tornado, a flood or a terrorist act – we may stagger and fall, but we always find a way to regain our balance. We find comfort in our common humanity.

Special Treatment For Your Special Gown

15% off Wedding Gown cleaning and preservation Through September 30th

By Dr. Russell Hyken

ummer is officially over when the fall equinox occurs on Sept. 23 of this year. Cooler temperatures are just around the corner, as our nights become longer and our days become shorter. If, however, you ask my teenagers when their favorite season ends, they will say it happens when school begins. Literally overnight, the carefree days of summer morph into the daily routine of a scholastic schedule. The beginning of the academic year is a hectic period of adjustment for all family members. It is also normal for most students to experience back-to-school stress. A good start to the semester, however, will benefit a student’s attitude, confidence and performance long after the opening bell has rung. Creating routine is the best way to alleviate adolescent anxieties. Many students struggle to understand the school day starts when the alarm clock rings, and the day ends when their head hits the pillow. Discuss with your children the importance of efficient mornings that allow time for a healthy breakfast. A nourished body creates a ready-to-learn brain. Also help your child to develop a consistent after-school study routine. Some youngsters prefer to complete homework before relaxing, while others want an after-school break. Have your son or daughter commit to the process that works best and build evenings around that schedule. Consistency will ensure academic responsibilities are successfully met. Extracurricular activities are important, too. Many kids want to join everything, which creates stress from struggles to meet classroom demands and after-school requirements. Others, unfortunately, prefer to be disengaged, often resulting in an unmotivated and lethargic student. Parents should establish realistic expectations and encourage their child to participate in at least one activity. Upfront conversations about how to manage homework, school activities and free time will set the tone for a balanced schedule and a healthy lifestyle. Last, revisit family routines as the school year begins. Make a commitment to have at least two family dinners every week. Also, pledge to spend quality alone time with each child on a weekly basis. A short stop at Starbucks on the way to school can be a powerful relationship-building time. All kids value family, even if they won’t admit it. When life gets hectic, it is a parent’s job to slow things down. Consistency in routine provides structure so a child can experience both academic and personal success. Families that set a positive tone in September also are building a strong foundation for responsible decision-making in the future. Good grades are important, but developing quality character and a positive attitude will bring even greater rewards.

“I

had never even heard of herbalism until after I graduated from college,” says Amanda Jokerst, the owner of Forest & Meadow Apothecary and Herbal Clinic. That amusing admission almost boggles the mind, in that Jokerst’s website lists a daunting array of credentials and states that her services combine “research-based and traditional herbal medicine, nutritional anthropology, ancient abdominal bodywork and massage techniques, and intuitive listening skills.” Moreover, Jokerst’s by-appointment-only practice has expanded so much that it soon will move from an office in the Wellness Center of Maplewood to a new clinic/shop combo at 3228 Ivanhoe Ave. in St. Louis’ Lindenwood Park neighborhood. (She tentatively mentions Sept. 21 as the date of the grand opening, with limited business hours before that, posted on the website and social media, and regular business hours resuming in October.) “I was reading a book about some of the environmental and infrastructural problems we may be facing as a society in the not-so-distant future,” Jokerst continues by way of relating the genesis of Forest & Meadow, “and the author mentioned a friend of his who was studying how to use plants as medicine in case she lost access to standard medical care. It immediately resonated somewhere deep within me, a place I didn’t even know existed at the time.” That resonance directly inspired her to take an online course in herbal medicine, after which her captivation with the subject snowballed. Dropping phrases like magic and wonder, awe and respect, she says, “I have been practicing as a Certified Clinical Herbalist since 2016.” Jokerst also credits her clients for inspiration. “They were coming to me with much more complex health conditions than just colds or flus,” she recalls, “and they wanted someone who could guide them in using herbs and natural remedies for their own wellness. So that’s when I decided that it was time to take the next step and get a more formal herbal education.” Vitalism informs her practice, whose clientele she estimates at 90 percent female and 10 percent male. Jokerst defines that term as “a philosophy that the human body has an intelligence that guides and directs all areas of health – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.” Someone practicing that philosophy, she notes, “seeks to understand how that intelligence … is manifesting within each client, looking for where it may be blocked or suppressed – that is, symptoms – and how they can best support the body to further engage its own natural healing abilities.” Practitioners, Jokerst says, “don’t just focus on symptoms or a particular disease one may have, but they look to get to the root of imbalance in the body, keeping the whole person in mind, and support their clients with various methods and therapies … ” Jokerst, as an herbalist, also disavows feeling any animus toward modern medicine as such. “I don’t believe that there has to be a dichotomy of natural medicine versus standard medical care, herbs versus drugs,” she says. “Sometimes we need a multifaceted approach to really start to feel better, and Western medicine does offer us some very helpful tools. … ” That said, Jokerst notes that modern medicine has failed a number of her clients. “Western medicine does a phenomenal job of working with acute situations, but it tends to fall short with disease prevention, chronic illness and wellness maintenance,” she says. “This is where I think herbal medicine and the sort of herbal medicine I practice in my clinic truly shine. “I give my clients the tools they need to feel healthy and vibrant, not just to not feel sick. I teach my clients how to better listen to and understand the signs their

body is giving that things are starting to go out of balance so that they can be more proactive in maintaining their own wellness.” Beyond the West and its focus on modern medicine, Jokerst also notes that herbalism still thrives elsewhere on the globe and bolsters health care for much of the world’s populace. Moreover, Jokerst emphasizes an interaction with her clients that recalls the halcyon days of house calls. “I build relationships, and I do my best to foster genuine connection with each person that sits in front of me,” she says. An initial one- to two-hour session, Jokerst adds, generally provides her with a thorough understanding of a client’s health profile, both present and past. “Because I’m interested in practicing holistic care, I really take the time to listen to what my clients want to share, to really hear their story,” she says. “Sometimes, this can be an incredibly healing part of the process … ” In particular, Jokerst strives to divine a client’s “whole health history” – current symptoms, diet, stress levels, and sleep and exercise habits, as well as health-related impacts on mental well-being, emotional life, work and relationships. “I need to know all of these things to really be able to work holistically, to support the whole person sitting in front of me and not just a set of physical symptoms they may be presenting with,” she says. “I remind my clients that they are the experts on what’s going on in their bodies and they have the power to listen to and understand what their bodies are saying.” In her practice, instead of standardized herbal products, Jokerst customizes formulas for the individual client. “I rely on a mix of traditional herbal wisdom, modern research studies, my own clinical experience and that of the teachers I’ve had, as well as intuition, to craft effective herbal remedies based on the information I gather from my clients during our sessions,” she says. Jokerst’s herbal products include teas, tonics and tinctures, as well as more arcane offerings like oxymels (medicinal honey/vinegar mixes), all incorporating organic local ingredients wherever possible. Several area stores, listed on the website, carry those products, which will remain integral to Forest & Meadow’s new space. “Our shop will feature over 200 different organic and ethically wild-crafted bulk herbs, as well as essential oils and aromatherapy, and we will expand our current offerings … ,” she says. The new clinic/shop also will feature a variety of other practitioners, like an acupuncturist and an aromatherapist, and will offer classes on diverse herbal topics along with, charmingly, “a teaching garden behind the shop, serving as an outdoor classroom as well as a space to just ‘be’ and connect with plants,” Jokerst says. Ultimately, she muses on Forest & Meadow’s place in the larger societal terrain. “I think herbalism offers a corrective not only to some of the hubris or overreach of modern medicine, but also of our society at large,” Jokerst says. “Working with plants as medicine helps us reconnect with the natural world, which has a huge impact on how we look at and feel about the natural landscape around us. I mean, just being outside can have tremendous healing power! “When we realize that our health as humans is dependent on the health of the environment in which we live, we have more of a vested interest in protecting it and standing up for the rights of our planet. I think herbalism is intimately intertwined with environmental justice, and as an herbalist, there is a call for me to highlight these connections for my local community. “Which brings me to one last point: Herbalism is also about creating healthy communities. Healthy people are able to be healthier members of their local communities, which ripples out into our society at large.” Forest & Meadow Apothecary and Herbal Clinic, Wellness Center of Maplewood, 3134 Sutton Blvd., Maplewood, 314-252-0082, forestandmeadow.com

Highlights from the menu include the 809 Signature Burger, a slider with a griddle-cooked beef patty, jalapeño-bacon jam, and Monterey Jack and mozzarella cheeses. Another popular pick, the South Side Salmon Slider, features grilled salmon marinated in lemon and butter with fresh jalapeño and passionfruit glaze on a Hawaiian roll. Salads include such options as the June 88, with chicken, strawberries, blueberry, bacon, onion and spring mix. Side options include baked mac ’n’ cheese and Southern greens.

For dessert, guests can try Smith’s favorite menu item: Poppy Norwood, featuring her grandfather’s recipe for Oreo-lemon cheesecake on an Oreo crust. From each dessert, $1 goes toward a homework happy hour complete with snacks to help youths in the community stay engaged in school. “I want people to come in and just feel the vibes here,” Smith says. “It’s good food made from scratch with fresh, quality ingredients. It’s a small spot with a lot of flavor.”

‌Story:  What’s a small-time gambler circa postWorld War II to do? Plucky Nathan Detroit may run “the oldest established floating crap game in New York,” but NYPD Lt. Brannigan is determined to jail him and his cronies, come hell or high stakes. Nathan needs $1,000 to use an acquaintance’s garage in his next venture, but has no cash. As the solution, he wagers that sum against slick Sky Masterson, who’s been known to bet on which sugar cube a fly will land on. So Nathan bets Sky the latter won’t be able to convince a woman of the former’s choosing to dine with him. The lady in question turns out to be Sgt. Sarah Brown of the Save-a-Soul Mission, which is struggling to find sinners to visit its Manhattan site. Sky takes the bet, then goes about wooing the sergeant. Sky tells Sarah he’ll guarantee 12 sinners to visit the mission when her boss comes calling the next night. He even talks Sarah into dining with him at his favorite place: a ritzy nightclub in Havana, where the teetotaling Sarah learns how much she likes “Cuban milkshakes” – which happen to be laced with rum. As for Nathan, his fiancée of 14 years, a singer named Miss Adelaide, has reached her limit awaiting a wedding proposal. Adelaide informs him she’s been writing letters to her mother in Rhode Island for 12 years, stating that the two of them now have five children – with a sixth on the way. The time has come for Nathan to marry the woman he professes to love. When a Chicago gangster named Big Jule arrives in town itching for a crap game, he resorts to cheating to win back all his money – and then some – from Nathan. Arriving late to the party, Sky bets all the gamblers that if they win, he owes each of them $1,000 – but if he beats them, they owe him a night at the mission. Who will win those bets? And can Sky convince the skeptical Sarah that he isn’t an inveterate gambler with loose morals? Highlights:  Stray Dog Theatre brings down the curtain on its 2018-19 season with a faithful, rollicking rendition of what some pundits have termed the perfect musical comedy. Other Info:  Guys and Dolls, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1951. Based on characters created by 20th-century newspaperman and short story writer Damon Runyon, Guys and Dolls also earned the 1951 Pulitzer Prize for Drama before Burrows was vilified by the U.S. House Un-American Activities Committee, leading to the prize being rescinded. Director Gary F. Bell’s rendition at Tower Grove Abbey fully uses the building’s aisles to accommodate his large, energetic cast as they stroll to the well-

appointed scenic design conceived by Josh Smith. It features the Hot Box nightclub (where Adelaide performs) at stage right, the Save-a-Soul Mission at stage left and a newsstand at center back. In one particularly vibrant moment, Mike Wells as Nicely-Nicely Johnson leads his fellow gamblers and the members of the mission in the gospel-infused number “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat,” again with infectious, stylized dancing. Bell coaxes winning performances from his agreeable cast, led by the limber Kevin O’Brien as Nathan. O’Brien’s especially humorous in his giveand-take with Sara Rae Womack; Womack excels as the long-suffering Adelaide, who’s hoodwinked her unseen mother about a husband and five grandchildren – without grandmum suspecting anything amiss in a dozen years. Angela Bubash and Jayde Mitchell pair handsomely as Sarah and Sky, with the latter leading the way on the show’s stirring anthem, “Luck Be a Lady,” while the former displays a fine voice on the ballad “If I Were a Bell.” Wells makes a humorous Nicely-Nicely, while Cory Frank serves ably as small-time hustler Benny Southstreet and Stephen Henley as ne’er-do-well Harry the Horse. Zachary Stefaniak amusingly portrays the intimidating Big Jule, while Howard S. Bell showcases his own impressive voice as Sarah’s grandfather. The jokes are as funny as ever, and the music still can get one swaying and snapping to its infectious sounds. Guys and Dolls makes one swell evening of entertainment.

D

, E, L and I – it seems more than a trifle apt that those four characters, in just that order, begin both delight and delicatessen, the latter being an often-quirky retailer dedicated to purveying the former. That observation leads to four other letters, a pair of pairs of them bracketing an ampersand: AO&CO. Officially dubbed “a specialty market and coffee and tea shop” on its group website, the establishment in question, which opened little more than two months ago, suggests a new-age take on that old-school retailer. It occupies a tidy one-story brick structure with stylish black metal doors at the southwestern corner of the intersection of McRee Ave. and Tower Grove Ave. in St. Louis’ Botanical Heights neighborhood. In essence, a visit to AO&CO may well conjure an old-fashioned delicatessen, something nowadays increasingly rare. It comes from Ben and Angela Poremba’s Bengelina Hospitality Group and ranks as a bit of a departure for that husbandand-wife team. The Porembas, that is, customarily specialize in restaurants: The Benevolent King in Maplewood and, clustered in Botanical Heights, the twinned Elaia and Olio (across Tower Grove Ave. from AO&CO), Nixta (due north of the new specialty market) and La Patisserie Chouquette (due north of the “twins”). AO&CO reportedly takes its name from the initials of the Porembas’ three children, Aviv, Omri and Cossette. Also reportedly, plans for the new establishment have been gestating since 2015 at least. AO&CO’s floor plan comprises four sections, all of which generally differ according to the products they proffer. In the first, front section – the largest – curious visitors should instantly espy a wood-and-plastic spinner rack sporting small, stylish greeting cards from Nashville, Tennessee’s Hester & Cook.

A central table a few feet to the right sports AO&CO-branded loaves of bread, complementing a nearby selection of California-based Rustic Bakery organic sourdough flatbread. The table bearing the flatbread also holds diverse brands of packaged, uncooked pasta and four varieties of single-serving Lillie’s Original Kettle Chips from Chicago. On the north side of that section of AO&CO, just past a small, potted planttopped counter, stands the first of two coolers. Its offerings include uncured bacon from Nueske’s of Wittenberg, Wisconsin, and similarly uncured hot dogs and bratwurst from Chef Martin Old World Butcher Shop of Bensenville, Illinois. Beside them sit products from the company Fermín (originating in the municipality of La Alberca in western Spain but domestically operating from New York): Iberian acorn-fed loin, grain-fed ham, serrano shoulder and Iberian salchichón. To nicely accessorize any charcuterie board, that first cooler likewise contains cheeses from Greenville, Illinois’ acclaimed Marcoot Jersey Creamery and three varieties of non-genetically modified organism wedges of Hull, Iowa’s Green Meadow fromage. Last but scarcely least, the cooler displays Blue Hill Bay smoked gravlax from Acme Smoked Fish Corp. of Brooklyn, New York. Angling to the south from that first cooler, a second specializes in liquid products, with the exception of a vase of roses. More specifically, it displays a brace of 2-footwide shelves of various bottled wines. Other shelves hold three varieties of canned Belgian-style ale from Blackberry Farm Brewery of Maryville, Tennessee; six varieties of sparkling water in single cans and eight-packs from Spindrift Beverage Co. of Newton, Massachusetts; bottled sparkling fruit tonic in tart cherry and crisp apple from Sawyer, Michigan’s Fruitbelt; and, surprisingly, bottles of Mexican Coca-Cola. The second, central section of AO&CO offers a farraginous collection of pleasantries on a table, in wooden casing and even on a glitzy black hanging rack.

Here visitors seeking whimsy can find Romano and pinot grigio salamis from St. Louis’ own Volpi Foods; truffle hot sauce from Brooklyn, New York’s Tango; three varieties of liquid sizzle in small bottles from Bushwick Sauce Co., also of Brooklyn; three varieties of culinary rubs in small, square tins from Grand Rapids, Michigan’s BliS Gourmet; and three varieties of granola in cardboard canisters from Brentwood’s own Banner Road Baking Co. The second section also displays diverse bags and aprons, as well as a selection of notepads, pencils, place mats and ribbons. AO&CO’s third section, adjoining the first and second to the south, discreetly comprises its tobacco-centered area, reportedly containing roughly 100 cigars. (Early one recent Sunday afternoon, it also was hosting a fee-based sommelier-led wine class.) At the rear of the establishment, its fourth and final section operates as a tiny café, including a trio of two-tops with distinctive clear-plastic chairs and small, round, white tables. Among other things, visitors here can purchase four types of java in small and large packs from St. Louis’ venerated Kaldi’s Coffee; bottled masala chai and rooibos teas from St. Louis’ Firepot Nomadic Teas; and fresh-squeezed OJ from a machine topped with a dozen or so bright oranges. Also exhibited in this section are a small selection of croissants and other pastries, and small-batch white chocolate bars from Springfield, Missouri’s Askinosie Chocolate. Finally, in glancing toward the ceiling, a visitor exiting AO&CO through the door at its northwestern corner might glimpse one more whimsical delight, likely for decorative purposes only: a shelf high atop the fourth section’s eastern wall bearing Drip-O-lators and similar vintage caffeine-related devices. Très charmant! AO&CO, 1641 Tower Grove Ave., St. Louis, 314-932-1088, bengelina.com
