Celebrate Financial Planning Month by Reviewing Your Own October is Financial Planning month and around the nation cities are hosting free Financial Planning Days. The events are a combined effort of four non-profit organizations to offer financial guidance in one-on-one sessions or workshops. Local CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professionals volunteer their time to provide free advice to their community for the day. Affluent clients and business owners may need more complex planning. I strongly suggest working with a financial planning professional to address your unique situation. Our planners at First Bank take an organized approach when they work with a client. Comprehend: The first step is to understand your values, goals and concerns. Just like using a navigation system to find the best route to your destination, we need to know your starting point and end destination.

Assess: The next step is to get an idea of what you have today, evaluate your progress towards your goals and any potential risk exposure. The process may include reviewing your financials, tax situation, asset titling, estate documents, business documents and insurance coverage. Recommend: The third step our planners take is to develop a personalized roadmap to achieve your life goals. They will recommend strategies or suggest any changes to your current plan. Execute: The most important part of the planning process is to implement the recommendations. We guide you every step of the way and work in conjunction with your legal and tax advisors. As your life changes we will make sure your plan evolves and you stay on course. As our clients grow their wealth it is important for us to make sure they have the appropriate investment allocation, are on track for retirement and are tax efficient. Protecting our client’s wealth is a top priority; we review their exposure to liability and financial risk. Most of our clients express their wishes of leaving a legacy. The word “legacy” is very personal and can have a very different meaning from one client to the next. Legacy could involve succession of the family business, making an impact with charitable donations, or passing on their values and wealth to their children. Our goal is to develop a personal roadmap that will allow our clients to grow their wealth, protect their wealth and help them start a legacy.

About what do you feel most anxious regularly or semiregularly (see p. 64)? DIANE ANDERSON As a photographer, my biggest worry is when I’m covering an event or charity. I strive to make sure I convey the message through my work. In capturing the moment, there are no second chances.

DAWN DEANE With four kids, in multiple sports, I’m typically analyzing departure and arrival times for 10 or more games on any given weekend. I feel more like an air traffic controller than a mom on those days!

RUSSELL HYKEN The teen years can be turbulent. And like most parents, I worry about my boys (13 and 15 years old) being happy, healthy and safe. Fortunately, they’re doing great, and my wife and I are really enjoying this stage of life!


• Meet the builder, Mike Lewis. • Walk the lot with Mike to learn of the possible floor plans for this building site. • Food truck on site for some delectable eats.

EDITOR ‌WORKING AT OUR LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL, MY MOM WAS always supporting the kids through various fundraisers. One fundraiser, though, was my favorite: magazine subscription sales. Every time this fundraiser came around, Mom let me flip through the catalog and pick out a publication of my choice. Each year I usually picked the same magazine, CosmoGirl, focused on teen fashion, health and young celebrities, which ceased publication in 2008. I could spend hours reading and admiring the glamorous images shown on each of the glossy pages. In this week’s Style section, LN fashion editor Katie Yeadon, alongside staff photographer Sarah Conard, worked together to create my favorite fashion photo shoot in LN to date. Starting on p. 52, this spread took me back to my preteen days of gazing at those beautiful glossy photos, simply admiring the beauty and artistry of the outfits and styles. Not only is the spread gorgeous, but also the attire is definitely “smart fashion,” and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. And in this week’s The Daily, LN contributing writer Connie Mitchell speaks with three medical professionals about tips for breast cancer prevention and early detection. Starting on p. 66, this story is not only educational also but important information all women should have. All the best,

Alecia Humphreys

A Work of Art


very child is an artist,” Pablo Picasso once said. “The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” At The Gatesworth, art is a part of everyday life for many residents. Residents like Dr. Leonard Banaszak and Virginia Larsen spend hours a week working on their art, and classes at The Gatesworth help facilitate that. Banaszak has always been interested in art, and when he and his wife moved to St. Louis, he started dabbling in oil painting. Classes take place on Wednesdays and Sundays, and he says he goes “religiously.” Though the classes at The Gatesworth are small, Banaszak notes, the artists regularly have other residents dropping in to see what they’re doing. “On a good day, the art room is too small for us,” he says. “People don’t always think of it as a class, though, because you can come and go as you please.” Banaszak draws inspiration from things his children send him and from things he photographs. “I was painting a lighthouse, and a woman came in and knew exactly what lighthouse it was,” he says. The art room at The Gatesworth is stocked with supplies: paints and other media of various kinds. The teachers, Banaszak says, are there to guide and point their students toward different types of techniques they may not have thought to try.


OcTOBER 21, 2016 |

When Larsen came to The Gatesworth 10 years ago, she had had no formal art training. However, when she was married in Springfield, Illinois, she was invited to join the Springfield Arts and Crafts club, where she participated in a number of artistic activities like weaving, pottery and some watercolor. When she saw art was offered at The Gatesworth, she was thrilled. “I see art in the world all around me,” Larsen says. “I pursued art class and got my fingers wet, so to speak. I’ve enjoyed it very much.” Larsen works mostly with watercolor and some acrylic. She enjoys painting animals, especially waterfowl. “I spend hours and hours a week in the art room,” she says. “I also like going to museums and galleries.” Art is everywhere Larsen goes, and she sees it in everything around her. “All I have to do is open my eyes and let it touch my senses,” she says. “That starts the creative juices flowing, and I go from there.” Every January, The Gatesworth has an art show, and Larsen sells some of her paintings. One year, she wove purses, too. The art show includes participants who have never previously lifted a brush, along with professional artists. “Art is what makes life worthwhile, alongside family, of course,” Larsen says.

inter Opera Saint Louis recently opened its 10th season of world-class operatic performances with its annual Fall Gala at Dominic’s Trattoria in Clayton. The evening began with cocktails followed by an amazing four-course Italian dinner; guests then were treated to sneak previews of the company’s upcoming season. Guests also enjoyed performances by artists Jack Swanson, Neal Nelson, Kate Tombough and Gina Galati. A record 130 guests attended, making this the company’s largest gala ever. Prior to dinner, board chair Nancy Pillsbury Shirley presented Galati with a glass sculpture recognizing her 10 years as the company’s general director. Co-chairing the evening were Shirley and her twin, Mary Pillsbury Wainwright. Anna Harris, Dr. Arthur Gale

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is making cures happen by providing patient-support services, advocating for lifesaving treatments and pioneering the most-promising cancer research anywhere. And it’s all happening now – not someday, but today. Friends, families and co-workers formed fundraising teams, and consumers helped by donating at retail outlets. These efforts customarily culminate in inspirational evening walks in nearly 200 communities across North America. Emceeing the Gateway Chapter’s event were broadcast personalities Renee Knott and Julie Tristan.

St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation



Photos and story by David Anderson

he Spirit of St. Anthony Awards Gala took place Sept. 24. More than 300 physicians, donors and other attendees took part in supporting St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation and honoring a dedicated pulmonologist/critical care specialist, a volunteer who has donated more than 35,000 hours of her time and a corporate partner for their philanthropic and/or humanitarian work in the community. St. Anthony’s Charitable Foundation bestowed those awards on Gary Marklin, M.D., Janine Gagliarducci and Musick Construction. The gala raised more than $120,000 to benefit the patients of St. Anthony’s Medical Center. The money will be used to purchase new equipment, such as the AngioVac (bought specifically to treat an existing patient who was a good candidate for its use).

Photos and story by Bryan Schraier

till going strong after half a century, The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis recently held its 50th-Anniversary Gala in the Khorassan Ballroom of The Chase Park Plaza in the Central West End. The black-tie event celebrated the company’s illustrious reputation both in St. Louis and around the nation and the world. The evening’s featured performer was TV and Tony Awardwinning Broadway icon Bernadette Peters. Before her performance, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, exciting raffles, a sumptuous dinner and a video look at the company’s first 50 years.

I have met the most wonderful people. Theater people are great. I love the staff there, plus I do airport pickups, and I have met some lovely cast people that I still correspond with and am still friends with that I’ve met over the years. I like to see what goes on backstage, to meet people in the costume shop and the prop shop. All of those things that go into making the magic of theater happen, we get to kind of see it from its inception – because I’m also a docent, and I talk to students before they see the play. So I get to talk to them, so I get to see it from the beginning.

SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital



Photos and story by Bryan Schraier

IPs and reserved tailgaters recently enjoyed a polo match sans polo at the annual Glennon Gallop held at Kraftig Polo Club in Defiance. The match lacked actual polo because rain had wet the field too much for the horses. As a result, attendees gathered in an large off-the-field tent. Proceeds from the event went to the Danis Pediatric Center at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. An increased demand for highquality pediatric care has prompted expansion at the main campus, to serve more patients than the 20,000 already seen annually. The Glennon Gallop featured silent and live auctions, food and drink, and a number of different fashion vendors purveying everything from hats to western wear and jewelry. After the food, auction and program, guests were serenaded by the sweet sounds of Washington, Missouri’s Pik’nLik’n. David and Jan Braswell

Majestic Missouri Prairies

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

Cone Flowers shows the natural beauty of the Missouri glade coneflower growing in full sun amid mixed native grasses.

28   October 21, 2016 |

Bring the Prairie Home Some of our best garden plants come from the prairie, as Cleaveland’s paintings show. He captured the graceful, dripping beauty of the glade coneflower (Echinacea simulata) and illustrated its pollinator partnership with monarch butterflies. Other paintings involve blazing star, wild bergamot and tiny Indian paintbrushes among native grasses. The last work in this excellent show depicts the Schwartz Prairie tract with a solid carpet of white penstemons in full bloom. The field is transitioning from agriculture to prairie, with the wildflower seed being grown for trade. Selling the seed helps to finance the restoration process. The reader might even end up with a piece of this prairie in his or her own garden by buying Missouri penstemon seeds. Try any of these for a sunny border: „„‌Coneflower „„‌Penstemon „„‌Wild bergamot „„‌Royal catchfly „„‌Blazing star liatris „„‌Goldenrods „„‌Asters „„‌Sunflowers „„‌Ironweed „„‌Milkweeds „„‌Prairie dropseed Grow Native! – the educational and marketing arm of the Missouri Prairie Foundation – has an excellent website at, with many plant lists and PDFs available for download.

This detail of a monarch butterfly feeding on glade coneflower in a Penn-Sylvania Prairie illustrates the importance of prairie plants as pollinator food sources.

In specific, use the site’s “Native Plant Info” pulldown menu to access the “Natives for Landscaping” tab. For a great start, consult A Guide to Native Landscaping in Missouri, from our own Shaw Nature Reserve and the Missouri Department of Conservation. The site otherwise abounds with reference materials to help you grow our wonderful prairie natives.




ctober makes a fabulous time for a road trip in Missouri. Filled with natural beauty in any season, prairies become even more special in autumn. Tall bluestem grass waves in the wind, fall composites bloom with cheery yellow faces, and sumac dots the scene with bright scarlet foliage. With a clear blue sky and crisp breeze, a country drive and nature hike combine for a great way to appreciate the changing season. Start with a visit to the Missouri Botanical Garden’s “Missouri Prairies” show, featuring paintings by renowned artist John Cleaveland, in the Ridgway Center. Then head west to the closest large prairie restoration, found at the garden’s nearby Shaw Nature Reserve, whose vistas inspired several of Cleaveland’s paintings; a personal favorite is Snow Flattened Tallgrass, a winter scene captured just after a heavy snow had melted. The bulk of this show’s work was inspired by properties owned or managed by the Missouri Prairie Foundation, a nonprofit group passionate about prairie preservation. The group hosted repeat visits, in different seasons, on which Cleaveland learned about and photographed these rare and treasured native landscapes. Back in the studio, Cleaveland used these images to illustrate the storyline for this exceptional show. To see these prairies on your own road trip, visit the foundation’s website at for maps and directions. Plan an overnight or weekend stay in the western part of the state.

ome of St. Louis’ most creative and celebrated interior designers are transforming 12 spaces inside the 2016 Ladue News Show House at 4388 Westminster Place, a historic property built in 1897 in the Central West End. The following previews share a behind-the-scenes look at three rooms in the Show House – the family room, the kitchen/breakfast room, and the den/office – and the designers’ visions and plans for them. The Show House will celebrate its preview party next Thursday, Oct. 20, and will open to the public on Oct. 22. Pick up the Oct. 28 and Nov. 4 issues of Ladue News for the remaining room previews in advance of the Show House’s big reveal in the Nov. 11 issue.

Family Room DESIGNERS: Jan Alred, Amanda Matzke and Robert Van de wiele of Ethan Allen Retail, Inc. The Show House’s family room spoke to Ethan Allen Retail, Inc. design consultant Jan Alred – and it spoke loudly. Its bold architecture features high ceilings, crown molding, a large fireplace and Corinthian columns atop low bookcases that divide the expansive room. Alred, with designers Amanda Matzke and Robert Van de Wiele, wanted to tone down the space and “relax it.” The family room features a soothing color palette of seaside green, blue and shades of gray. “Grays have taken over as the new neutral for some time now,” says Alred, who has worked with Ethan Allen in St. Louis for the greater part of her 25-year interior design career. All of the furniture pieces, such as the Sayville single cabinet and Jacob barrel chair, are romantically Frenchaccented and showcase Ethan Allen’s new collections. “We decided to bring a soft look to the bold lines of the room so when you come in, you can relax your mind,” Alred says. Ethan Allen Retail, Inc., 16860 Chesterfield Airport Road, Chesterfield, 636-536-2774, The antique mirrors and French hotel-inspired posters add an eclectic touch to the room’s overall soothing design.

The silhouette of the Ethan Allen Audrey sofa and the modern details of the Zachary coffee table blend the designers’ vision of French accents and vintage touches.

A beautiful Ghordies rug in gray made of Afghani wool softens the wood floors to capture comfort.

The ivory and gray paint and color palette bring the room together. Alred says they aim to evoke a “staycation” ambiance from the family room. | october 21, 2016

The stained-glass doors of the butler’s pantry were replaced and updated with this lasercut sheet metal design, which further adds to Deatherage’s goal of featuring unexpected elements to excite viewers.

The glass top on this sculptural table minimizes the room it takes up visually.


Kitchen/Breakfast Room

The interlocked rings on the Hermès wallpaper are meant to reflect the iconic Hermès Chaîne d’Ancre bracelet. “I thought it would be a nice modern contrast to the antique factor of the space,” Deatherage says.

A banquette features a vintage farm bench with a zebra-hide seat as a way to contrast the antique with modern upholstery.

DESIGnEr: David Deatherage of David Deatherage Design David Deatherage of David Deatherage Design transforms the compact breakfast alcove in the Show House kitchen into a special spot perfect for purposes far beyond a morning meal. He describes it as a place “not just for morning coffee but also for reading, working from a laptop or intimate candlelight dining.” Deatherage was drawn to the breakfast room because of its character, from the beadboard ceiling to the original butler’s pantry. “I saw a lot of ways to use the space,” he says. The designer’s talent for blending glamour into historic design is showcased through details such as the geometric Hermès wallpaper and the antique French chairs adorned with zebra-hide seats. Deatherage has been designing interiors for the past five years. David Deatherage Design, 314-495-3719,

Den/Office DESIGnEr: Dottie Eaton of Design Style

The Design Deli Decorative Paint Co. created the floor-to-ceiling flower painting, which Eaton says provides a graphic element to a room with minimal architectural details.

Dottie Eaton, founder of Design Style, admired the Show House den for its potential to be a woman’s retreat. A prominent bay window is the room’s centerpiece and served as Eaton’s inspiration, along with Led Zeppelin’s song “Going to California,” which describes a girl with “love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.” Eaton imagined what that free-spirited woman’s den or office would look like – from the handcrafted desk to the floor-to-ceiling flower painting on the wall. “The whole idea of the painting is these undulating, flowing flowers that add some visual interest to the room,” Eaton says. Music, she adds, often inspires her designs, along with nature and art. Eaton comes from an art background and has been designing and styling interiors for more than 10 years.

Designer Guild’s Pavonia fabric line of floral oriana-Crocus combines original hand-painted artwork with photographic technique and covers the seats in the Casala chairs.

Design Style, 314-324-2203,

Eaton describes these Casala molded fiberglass chairs from west Germany as “airy and mod.” They provide a modern pop against the ornately carved French sofa, which rests in the bay window. | october 21, 2016

others and sons have a special bond, but most times, it doesn’t lead into a career together. Mother-son team Kristi and JT Monschein form The Monschein Team, part of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alliance Real Estate. The team has more than 50 years of combined experience in real estate. Together, they’ve completed more than $900 million in sales transactions for buyers, sellers and investors in the St. Louis area. One of the things the Monscheins pride themselves on is being accessible to their clients and working directly with them. “When you list your house with us, you talk with us,” JT Monschein says. The team currently has some beautiful listings on the market. A listing at 16901 Pacland Ridge Drive in Chesterfield is a 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom home that

sits on more than 3 acres. It includes a 7-car garage, 5 fireplaces and a 2-story foyer with a curved staircase. It’s listed at $2,290,000. In Wildwood, meanwhile, 18038 Homestead Manor Drive sits on 1.5 acres and has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Though it’s a 1.5-story home, a 2-story foyer makes a striking first impression. It’s listed at $1,149,000. The home at 40 Auburndale Drive in Creve Coeur is listed at $1,325,000. This 6-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom home is 7,000 square feet and features an attached guest house. Finally, 626 Morel Court in St. Albans, listed at $1,199,900, features 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. The private lot backs up to the beautiful Lewis and Clark Golf Course of St. Albans Country Club. Homes like these exemplify what The Monschein Team is about. During 2015, they completed transactions valued at more than $60 million.

Walk through the dramatic marble foyer to a vaulted great room, featuring a stone fireplace and sliding glass doors that lead to the wraparound deck. You can easily imagine baking a scrumptious spread for the family inside the updated kitchen, having utilized first-rate appliances, granite countertops and custom cabinetry. Serve inside the sophisticated dining room, just inside the 9-foot handcrafted mahogany doors. The walk-out lower level will prove a wonderful getaway, with a media system, recreation and workout rooms, an office and a bar area.

Fall Hairstyle Tips


By Kimmie Gotch

utumn marks a time of many changes and transitions, especially with your coiffure. To freshen your look by changing your locks this season, consider these suggestions: Cut.  Unless you want to change your hair color, a cut may be just the thing you need – as with the following two options. If you have long hair but fear essaying an all-over cut, try face-framing layers, a style that flatters almost every face shape. Although not dramatic, the layers should freshen your look in a satisfying fashion. Another option: shaggy bangs. Now categorically in vogue, such bangs make the perfect transitional fall haircut. Also, if you’ve ever wanted to try bangs, now’s the perfect time meteorologically; bangs in the summer can be a pain, but autumn’s cool transforms them into a pure pleasure. Color.  Otherwise, a change in coloration can transform any coiffure from drab to fab. To effect such a change, though, it’s best to visit a salon instead of doing it yourself, given the potential for complications from techniques like balayage and highlights/lowlights, let alone all-over color. Balayage involves having your stylist hand-paint color directly onto your hair to make it more personalized. It also gives you a softer, more natural look, allowing women who can’t get their hair touched up every six to eight weeks some leeway – balayage grows out much more naturally than foils. If you’re a brunette seeking a change, have your stylist add caramel-colored highlights to your hair, or if you have very dark brown or black locks, consider chestnut highlights. Any warm color added to brown or black hair will look absolutely stunning in fall and winter. Such an addition also will provide the perfect amount of change; people will notice something’s different, but the change won’t be so drastic it’ll take a lot of getting used to. Blondes, meanwhile, should consider having their stylists add some lowlights around October. Doing so will give the hair a bit more depth and dimension and will look amazing with fairer skin tones in the colder months. Redheads, finally, might have their stylists add a deeper tone of red for autumn. That said, natural red hair looks beautiful enough untouched, so if hair coloring’s not the right change for you to make, try those shaggy bangs! The best part about changing your hair involves knowing it will always grow back or revert to its natural color. Experimenting with different colors and styles each season can provide great fun – so don’t fear trying something new this fall!

Frank O.




By Paul Brown

ven though Frank O. Pinion claims to know nothing about radio, he is sure he’s the highest-paid local radio personality in St. Louis history. “I don’t know anything about anything. I shouldn’t even have a show,” Pinion, aka John Craddock, says. “I don’t even know how radio works. I don’t!” Pinion isn’t really bragging, but he has made millions of dollars, and I don’t mean just a couple of million. “People have no idea,” he says. “If you get a calculator and run the numbers, then you’ll go, ‘Holy mackerel!’” Since 1997, Pinion and his sidekicks have occupied the studios of KTRS AM 550 with The Large Morning Show in the Afternoon. The format is a few (usually corny) jokes, phone calls from listeners and sound effects that are sometimes a bit crass and a bit blue, but almost always funny. “It’s juvenile and it’s repetitive, but it works,” Pinion says. And who can argue with him? His success speaks for itself. When Pinion came to KTRS, he worked out a deal with management. He and his crew would work for free, but every hour that he was on, he would get commercial time available for sale. Advertisers were – and still are – willing to pay a premium for Pinion to sell their products. And if there’s one thing Pinion apparently knows how to do, it’s sell. “My average advertiser has been on with me for eight years,” he says. “Those people aren’t stupid. They’re not going to keep throwing money away if the return is not there.” In the interests of full disclosure, I’m a colleague of sorts with Pinion at KTRS. I’m a fill-in host on a talk show there, but unfortunately, the fact that we’ve been known to frequent the same airwaves is the only thing our careers have in common – especially when it comes to pay. His show always makes me and his loyal listeners laugh, and that’s a big reason he’s been so successful. “I want people on the way home, at least a couple of times, to just lose it laughing,” he says. “You feel better when you laugh.” Pinion was born in the hardscrabble town of Humboldt, Tennessee. His family then moved to Waterloo, Illinois, and he graduated from high school in 1967. He got his start in radio in 1970 at the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville campus station, but dropped out and started doing freelance commercials using funny voices and sound effects. That led to a part-time gig as a bit player on KSD AM, where he did a parody of radio czar Robert Hyland in a character he created named Ed E. Torial. The routine was a hit, and management at sister station KUSA wanted him to produce a character for its morning show. “It was on a Sunday that I came up with the name Frank O. Pinion, and on Monday, I was doing a five-minute bit,” he says. “I chit-chatted, told a joke, and I left – and that is what changed my life. … In 18 months, we went from 15th to second in the morning ratings, second only to KMOX.” Pinion says the paychecks aren’t quite what they used to be, but he’s still laughing all the way to the bank. “It’s been beyond a good deal,” he relates. “It’s unheard of.” The money has enabled him to become a helicopter and airplane pilot. He has a big boat and a house on the Lake of the Ozarks, but he also has things that money can’t buy. Pinion and his wife of 45 years, Tyann, have three grown children and one grandchild. They’re his most valuable assets. “Spend time with your kids,” he says reflectively. “When I’m gone, I hope that when you ask my kids what’s the greatest thing that ever happened to them, they’ll say ‘our parents.’

It was on a Sunday that

I came up with the name Frank O. Pinion, and on Monday, I was doing a five-minute bit. I chit-chatted, told a joke, and I left – and that is what changed my life. … In 18 months, we went from 15th to second in the morning ratings, second only to KMOX. - FRANK O. PINION “Our parents are responsible for who we are, the way we treat people, the way we conduct ourselves. I was a strict disciplinarian, but I made [my kids] laugh and was always unpredictable.” Despite the improbabilities, Frank O. Pinion seems to have it all. Maybe someday he’ll even learn more about the business he’s in, but for now, it’s not a bad gig for someone who knows nothing about radio.

Someday Is Today

By Charlotte VM Ottley

“‌ We cannot redo the past. We definitely cannot guarantee the outcomes of the future. However, we can live every moment that we have as a new beginning of the someday we want.” –An Ottley-ism Successful people often think about their future, then plot a course to achieve it. Once the vision’s set, an individual’s decisions dictate his or her choices in order to achieve that vision. Most successful people share their childhood dreams, detours and opportunities. The most engaging stories approximate the mythical phoenix rising from its own ashes to grandeur. Such stories come in many forms, and we all have them to varying degrees. So – what’s your story? Is today the someday you dreamed of? Consider the following advice: Know the difference between your dreams and those set by others: „„‌Beware pressure to keep your family’s professional legacy – whatever it may be – going, if it’s not your dream. „„‌Respect what others see in you, but ultimately follow your passion and remain determined. „„‌Learn from both good and bad choices, and shoulder responsibility. Sharpen your instincts and trust them. Although many people who fail have a list of other people and circumstances to blame, there’s rarely a time you lack the privilege of choice. Explore the benefits of your dreams: „„‌Determine what makes you happy instead of anticipating responses from others. „„‌Don’t limit your aspirations. Explore and increase your options. You may be surprised how you can expand the scope of those aspirations. „„‌Consider your hobbies as a potential source of abundant fulfillment and money, too, if your job fails to provide desired outcomes. „„‌Avoid regarding necessity and your dreams as an “either/or” proposition. Instead, they can make good companions. „„‌Determine what you’re willing to sacrifice and its worth. Never forget that your past will meet you again in the future, and determine if your decisions are worth that meeting. Create great memories to sustain your growth. I once had a patient nicknamed Bear who was quadriplegic. Bear had good comprehension skills, but could say only one phrase: “Dream on, dreamer – dream on!” He brightened many people’s lives. His intonations with this phrase matched most situations. Many years later, I still think of Bear. You never know how the things you do today will impact another’s dreams for someday. Take a moment today to smile about something and give praise in the moment. Don’t rush by the beauty of what you have. Enjoy making deposits into a great future. So dream on, dreamer – dream on! Make today count.

Gender-Based Anxiety


ecently in a New York Times article, Leonard Sax – M.D., Ph.D. and respected author – wrote that girls suffer from anxiety more than boys. A quick Google search revealed multiple studies support this claim, with girls and woman twice as likely to experience clinical anxiety as boys and men. What really caught my attention, though, was Sax’s statement that social media, in part, accounts for the rise of female stress. He explains that men typically post online about something they have done; women, though, often post about how they look. Women also are more likely to judge the photos of others and be self-conscious about their own posts because they feel appearance matters. Social media increases anxiety for all adolescents but especially for teenage girls. Life, however, doesn’t start this way. During the infant/toddler years, boys

are generally needier than girls. And as kids go through childhood, both sexes tend to experience equal amounts of anxiety. However, as girls become adolescents, they take the lead in stress-related symptomology. Another factor contributing to female moodiness may be mom and dad. Parents react differently to behavior based on the sex of their child. Girls receive empathy when they hurt, but boys often are told to “suck it up and move on.” Research also states that parents more readily accept anxious behaviors from their daughters than from their sons because of a societal perception that emotionality is just part of being a girl. Further, females typically receive support when they’re nervous, while boys often are told to “man up.” Unfortunately, these different approaches, in essence, teach boys how to cope while further fostering anxious feelings in female adolescents. No matter the sex of your children, support and

listen when they’re stressed. Offer support and allow your kids the time and space they need to solve their own problems. If your child’s mood lasts long or recurs frequently, it may be time to seek professional assistance. Although social media and parenting style may have something to do with why girls feel more anxious than boys, in the bigger picture, society may be the actual cause. Either way, recognize that kids all differ, and provide each with the support he or she needs to succeed.

range and black have long been the colors associated with October, as autumn takes hold and Halloween caps off the month. But in recent years, October also has been associated with pink, the color representing Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). Since BCAM was established by the American Cancer Society (ACS) in 1985 and the pink-ribbon icon was introduced by the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in 1993, pink has proliferated in October to remind women of the importance of breast cancer prevention, detection and treatment. Experts extol the progress made in breast cancer prevention and early detection, yet the ACS’s statistics remain sobering: Breast cancer remains the second-most common cancer among American women (behind only skin cancer), and women in the U.S. still have a 1-in-8 lifetime risk of being diagnosed. However, survival rates have improved in the past two decades, with the death rate decreasing by 23 percent between 1991 and 2012, and it’s clear that women diagnosed early generally have a much better prognosis than those diagnosed in later stages. Mammograms have long been considered the first line of defense in early diagnosis. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent volunteer panel of national experts in prevention and evidence-based medicine, suggests that women ages 40 to 50 discuss the need for screening mammograms with their doctor and that those older than 50 receive a mammogram every two years; however, the ACS recommends annual mammograms starting at least by age 45 and continuing for at least 10 years, at which point women may consider switching to biennial mammograms, depending on risk factors. Many physicians, including Dr. Catherine Appleton, chief of breast imaging and associate professor of radiology at Washington University in St. Louis, recommend annual mammograms starting at age 40. “This is also the recommendation of the NCCN [National Comprehensive Cancer Network], of which Siteman Cancer Center is a member,” Appleton says. “Importantly, highrisk women, like those with a family history, might need to begin screening before age 40 and undergo supplemental screening with breast MRI.” She adds that the future holds more personalized and nuanced screening techniques that researchers are still developing. Appleton recognizes the confusion caused by differing screening recommendations from various organizations and individual physicians. However, her stance is clear and firm: “What women really should know is that there is widespread agreement across groups. A woman can minimize her risk of dying from breast cancer by getting a yearly mammogram beginning at age 40.” Alternative screening technologies continue to be debated in the medical industry. For example, thermal imaging has gained some attention, but Dr. Aislinn Vaughan, a fellowship-trained breast surgeon with SSM Health St. Louis, notes that the data to support it is sparse, and most breast fellowship-trained radiologists recommend against it due to the lack of evidence supporting its efficacy. Breast ultrasound, which uses sound waves to create images and can

help differentiate between fluid-filled cysts and solid masses, does have some research support, but only as an adjunct to mammography. “However, standard supplemental screening for high-risk women is a breast MRI with contrast, which has more data to support it and higher sensitivity than a screening breast ultrasound,” she says. MRIs use radio waves and magnets to create very detailed pictures, and the contrast liquid is injected into a vein to increase the resulting visual detail even further. Given that screening must be considered individually by a woman and her physician based on her specific risk factors and concerns, women can reduce their risk of ever being diagnosed through some basic lifestyle adjustments. Achieving and maintaining a normal weight (typically considered a body mass index of 25 or less) through diet and regular exercise is the first step in decreasing breast cancer risk. “We also know that women who smoke have a higher risk for developing breast cancer than women who do not smoke, so that’s yet another reason to encourage smoking cessation,” Vaughan says. “In addition, women who drink more alcohol have a higher risk for developing breast cancer than women who consume less, which relates to alcohol’s metabolism into estrogenlike compounds that stimulate breast cells. Thus, minimizing alcohol consumption is a reasonable consideration.” Because breast cancer risk increases with age, postmenopausal women also should talk with their physicians about the risks versus benefits of hormonereplacement therapy (HRT), which is associated with an increased overall risk of breast cancer with long-term use. “Alternative options to the treatment of menopausal symptoms that don’t increase breast cancer include the antidepressant Effexor for hot flashes, and topical ointments and lubricants for vaginal dryness,” says Dr. Sarah Colwick, a breast surgeon with Mercy Clinic Breast Surgery. “If a woman can avoid hormone-replacement therapy or wean off of it, that’s best in terms of breast cancer risk, but if a woman truly needs HRT, then my recommendation would be to limit use to less than five years.” If breast cancer is detected through screening or after finding an unusual breast lump, discharge or thickening, scientists are working on technologies that will help differentiate aggressive tumors from less-aggressive forms of breast cancer. “There is a lot of progress in tailoring treatment based on the characteristics of the particular cancer,” Vaughan says. “However, any invasive breast cancer can cause death, and very advanced cancers might not. It’s a matter of looking at the potential benefit of the treatment on the risks of that particular cancer. Cancers that have a characteristic called ‘Her-2 positive’ have a higher risk of recurrence, but benefit significantly from chemotherapy drugs that are targeted to that characteristic. Most breast cancers are ‘hormone positive’ and benefit from five to 10 years of antihormonal therapy.” “The most important thing I can emphasize to patients is vigilance,” Colwick adds. “This involves a healthy diet, smoking cessation, regular exercise and, above all, an annual screening mammogram.

How can I differentiate between the common cold and the flu?

Dr. Allison Flammang


As we head into fall and the winter season, many of us may come down with a respiratory illness, but the question is, is this just the common cold or is it the flu? As a primary care office we see lots of sick patients each season who are asking this very question. While both may present similarly they are caused by different viruses. The common cold may present with more mild symptoms of stuffy nose, sneezing, cough, and sore throat, but rarely headache and high fevers. The flu may present with sudden exhaustion, weakness, high fevers (100-102F), and headache as well as sore throat and cough. The flu is more serious and may lead to complications including bronchitis, pneumonia, and hospitalization. Prevention is key and a yearly flu vaccine is offered to deter illness. Other preventative measures include practicing good hand hygiene with frequent handwashing and avoidance of sick people. When in doubt, see your physician as tests are available to diagnose influenza. Resources: CDC-Cold versus Flu 8/11/16

Counseling and Therapy can I recognize Q: How signs and symptoms of depression?


Depression interferes with functioning and daily life, causing pain for both the person experiencing symptoms and those who care about him or her. Depression is not as simple Rebecca Edwards, LCSW as a temporary change in mood. It is a real medical disorder that can affect anyone, anytime. Emotional, physical, behavioral and cognitive symptoms range from mild to moderate and even severe. One cannot merely snap out of it. Although practicing healthy habits can help, doing so may not completely alleviate depression. Without treatment, symptoms can last for weeks, months or years. Not everyone experiences the same symptoms. Depression’s severity and duration also vary from person to person. A person may have depression if five or more of the following symptoms are present for more than two weeks at any time: loss of interest or enjoyment in normal daily activities; persistent sad, anxious or hopeless mood; irritability or nervousness; feelings of guilt, fear or worthlessness; significant weight gain or loss, due to appetite change; overtiredness or decreased energy; unable to sleep or too much sleep; unexplained crying spells; difficulty concentrating, remembering or making decisions; little or no interest in companionship or sex; or thoughts of death or suicide. Symptoms in children may not have the classic signs of adult depression. Watch especially for changes in school performance, sleep and behavior.

Owner Rebecca Edwards, LCSW, has 22 years’ experience in counseling and therapy, and is trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy. She works with children, adolescents and adults who struggle with depression, anxiety or stress from relationships, grief, career and more. Visit

Helping you hear better A major complaint for those with hearing loss is not being able to hear well in noisy environments like restaurants, cars and meetings. Over the past few years, we’ve seen advances in hearing assistive technology (like rechargeable batteries), and to address the noisy-environment complaint, hearing aids can now be paired with devices such as wireless microphones and smartphones to enhance sound amplification and clarity. This new paired-device technology allows users to hear nearly as well as someone with normal hearing when a speaker uses a small remote microphone up to 75 feet away. Conversations on paired smartphones can also be heard in both ears (as opposed to only the ear the phone is held to) directly through hearing aids. Smartphone applications, or “apps”, paired with hearing aids also allow you to: • Change volume in one or both hearing aids • Turn your hearing aids on/off • Change how the hearing aids sound by adjusting the bass and treble

• Help you find your hearing aids if lost • Wirelessly listen to music or videos from your cellphone, tablet, TV or computer • Include a program to help if you have ringing in your ears

Learn how new hearing technology can help you. (800) 437-5430 | Washington University Audiology

Dinner ...


t Mariscos El Gato, the South Side gets a taste of Mexican cuisine in a style previously unseen on Cherokee Street. The concept, which opened on August 15, features Nayarit-style food from the North Pacific coast of Mexico. The new seafood-centric eatery comes from owner Carlos Dominguez – of Don Carlos Restaurant – and chef Pedro Diaz, for whom the restaurant is partly named. Mariscos is Spanish for “seafood,” while el gato, or “the cat,” is Diaz’s nickname. “Pedro is originally from Guanajuato, but learned this style of food from Chicago,” says press representative Minerva Lopez. “His previous experience comes from

having worked 12 years in this type of establishment.” Mariscos El Gato fills the space previously occupied by Méxcla, with an expanded dining room that stretches into the next-door storefront. The approximately 2,500-square-foot restaurant doubles the room’s prior capacity, now with seats for 80 to 100 patrons. An appropriately oceanic theme fills the dining room with maritime flair against light-blue walls. Pops of color, including red booths, coincide with the vibrantly colorful plates created in the kitchen. “It’s salty, spicy, delicious food,” Lopez says. “The variety of peppers is immense, but primarily we use red-pepper flakes, guajillo pepper and lots of garlic and butter.”

By Mabel Suen In addition to those items, seasonings central to the cuisine include lime juice, soy sauce, chile de árbol, paprika, bay leaves and oregano. All dishes can be made to taste, with a variety of options such as al ajo, or scampi-style with garlic-chili oil. Nayarit style features a spicy tomato sauce, while a la diabla packs a punch with spicy pepper sauce. “We have more than 50 items on our menu. On the appetizer side, we have ceviches, seafood cocktails and cold-appetizer platters,” says Lopez. “On the shell, we have oysters. We source from the best seafood places in town, including Bob’s Seafood.” Another highlight, camarones momia, features shrimp stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon,

then coated in flour and deep-fried. Most dishes are served with butter rice, seasoned french fries, a salad and a side of garlic bread. Specialties include stuffed lobster for sharing, langoustines sautéed in butter and pepper sauce, and aguachiles – seafood served in spicy lime juice. A bestselling seven-seas soup features smoky chipotle flavor, filled with ingredients including shrimp, octopus and crab legs. Additional options include pescado zarandeado, grey mullet grilled on mangrove wood. “We could’ve easily set up another taco stand again, but we wanted to take a chance on something new,” Lopez says of Mariscos El Gato, and a visit there would serve as a fine and spicy prelude to enjoying The Rocky Horror Show from Stray Dog Theatre.

‌Story:  While an usherette cleans up a 1960s movie house, a narrator appears and tells the tale of Rocky Horror: Brad and Janet are driving in the rain to their old high school science teacher Dr. Scott’s house, when they discover their car has a flat tire. They have come from a high school friend’s wedding and have also just become engaged to each other. They arrive at an old castle outside Denton, Ohio, where they’re ushered in by a creepy butler named Riff Raff. Soon they’re welcomed by the lord of the manor, Dr. Frank N. Furter. He’s a bit strange, as are the maid Magenta and a young woman named Columbia. Soon enough, Brad and Janet learn that a delivery boy named Eddie is held captive there and are horrified when Furter hacks Eddie to death. That’s just the beginning of their misadventures at the castle. After Furter reveals that he has created a superior creature named Rocky for his own erotic pleasures, Brad and Janet are sent for the night to separate bedrooms, where they’re introduced to the sexual shenanigans taking place among the denizens of the castle, led by Furter. When Dr. Scott arrives unexpectedly in search of his missing nephew – Eddie – Riff Raff and Magenta warn the visitors to leave the castle, which is actually an alien space ship and which returns to their planet against the wishes of Furter. The story’s narrator wraps up the bizarre tale as the usherette returns to her chores in the empty theater. Highlights:  Just in time for Halloween, Stray Dog Theatre revives the cult classic The Rocky Horror Show and does so in a big, splashy and rowdy manner. Associate artistic director Justin Been pulls out all the stops to make this a grand and glorious paean to the horror and sci-fi flicks of half a century ago. Been and company add a heavy dose of wild sexual activities and infectious energy that play to the boisterous, raucous audiences that love The Rocky Horror Show with all its musical and comic mayhem. Other Info:  Richard O’Brien wrote the book, music and lyrics for this campy musical comedy that opened in London’s West End in 1973, running for nearly 3,000 performances before closing in 1980. Its Broadway version in 1975 wasn’t nearly as successful, closing after less than 50 performances, but the 1975 film version remains a fan favorite to this day. The Rocky Horror Show draws an exuberant, festive crowd that’s encouraged to shout out colorful nouns for Brad and Janet whenever their names are mentioned and even to enhance the plot. The back page of the program, though, lists specific instructions about protocol lest the more frenzied get carried away. Michael Juncal pays right proper homage to Tim

Curry (the original) as the high-heeled, makeupmanic Furter, seducing both Brad and Janet by night while welcoming the duo to his lair with his saucy “Sweet Transvestite” number. Corey Fraine is a hoot as the scheming Riff Raff, leading the company on its inspired rendition of the show’s signature number, “The Time Warp,” accompanied in suitably droll fashion by Maria Bartolotta as Magenta (Riff Riff’s sister) and Sara Rae Womack as good-time girl Columbia. Kevin O’Brien is a suitably buttoned-up Brad, and Heather Matthews displays the troupe’s best voice as the sexually awakened Janet, belting out chords that threaten to shatter Tower Grove Abbey’s stained-glass windows. Luke Steingruby wears little more than a smile (but it’s a nice smile) as Furter’s lust-inducing and surprisingly thoughtful creation, the title character, while Michael Wells doubles as the ill-fated Eddie and the wheelchair-bound scientist, Dr. Scott, who may have secret ties to the FBI. Although The Rocky Horror Show has been around for more than 40 years, Been makes this risqué and bawdy valentine to cheap and sensational sci-fi fresh and full of fun. You might even be inspired to dance to “The Time Warp” again.

Winter Opera Saint Louis waltzes galvanically into its tin anniversary with The Merry Widow.

he City of Lights, a lovely lady and filthy lucre – all three, in just a week, will enliven the 10th-season debut of Winter Opera Saint Louis, né New Opera St. Louis, whose tagline promises “Performances that warm the soul.” The Merry Widow, the comedic opus in question, will take the stage at Chaminade College Preparatory School’s Skip Viragh Center for the Arts Oct. 28 and 30, and Gina Galati, the company’s founder and general director, self-evidently delights in discussing the debut. “The Merry Widow is a comic operetta with beautiful and familiar melodies such as ‘Vilia,’ ‘I Am Off to Chez Maxime’s’ and ‘Red as the Rose of Maytime,’” Galati relates of the season opener by Austro-Hungarian composer Franz Lehár, which premiered in 1905 in Vienna. “It’s also known as one of the greatest waltzing operettas not written by [Austrian composer Johann] Strauss, so it has many upbeat waltzes. The story takes place in Paris. The ambassador, Baron Zeta, must find a way to save his country from bankruptcy. One solution is to prevent the rich and beautiful heiress Hanna from marrying a foreigner.” Kathy Pyeatt will portray Hanna, the titular widow, she adds, with other roles filled by Gary Moss, Clark Sturdevant and Jack Swanson. A celebratory rationale prompted the choice of the Lehár operetta as the opener, says Galati. “We wanted to start our 10th season with a bang – with dancers, a large chorus and many roles played by local artists,” she relates. “We do have some artists coming in from out of town, but this is a great opportunity to showcase St. Louis talent.” That said, the choice did prompt a spot of institutional soul-searching. “We’re performing The Merry Widow in English,” Galati says. “This was a difficult decision because it’s our longstanding practice to perform in the original language, which in this case is German. But there’s so much dialogue in this show that I felt the audience

would better enjoy the wordplay – especially the jokes – in English. “And recently, many national and regional operas – not the least of which is [New York’s Metropolitan Opera] – have been producing The Merry Widow in English. We’re using a translation by Dean Anthony, our director, that’s guaranteed to have a lot of laughs.” With equal enthusiasm, Galati succinctly previews the season’s two remaining operas, as well as a December event. “[Italian composer Gioachino] Rossini’s La Cenerentola is a light-hearted Cinderella story with lots of vocal fireworks and funny characters,” she says. “The two stepsisters are a hoot, and there are many impressive high Cs for the tenor. “[French composer Georges Bizet’s] Carmen has incredible music, including many of opera’s greatest hits. We have an Italian mezzo-soprano, Bernadetta Orsi, who blew away everyone at our auditions in New York City when she came in to sing Carmen. She’s going to be a showstopper. “And Holidays on the Hill, which this year will be Dec. 6 and 7, continues its tradition as one of the best holiday parties in town, combining the gourmet Italian cuisine of Dominic’s on The Hill with beautiful holiday music by our [Winter Opera Saint Louis] artists.” La Cenerentola, it bears noting, will take the stage Jan. 27 and 29; Carmen, March 3 and 5. Also, the December event enjoys a familial connection, as Galati’s parents own and operate Dominic’s. Galati – herself an acclaimed soprano who earned a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree in music from Washington University in St. Louis, a master’s degree in opera from the University of Kansas in Lawrence and a third credential from an Italian institution – reflects at length on the history of her company, a nonprofit organization that seeks “to provide St. Louis with world-class operatic performances during the winter,” according to its website. Initially, it operated from an office in her living room and performed in manifold local venues. “I felt a bit like La Bohème, bouncing around like that – it was difficult,” she says, referring to the classic opera by

Italian composer Giacomo Puccini, in which Galati has sung. “But our company – and, more important, our audiences – grew very rapidly.” The company’s opening daze still seemingly has Galati a bit dazzled. “Our biggest high point, of course, was our first production, of [Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi’s] Rigoletto in St. Ambrose Church,” she recalls, mentioning a Roman Catholic landmark on The Hill. “It was an exciting, magical production, and I was so proud to bring such an incredible event to my own neighborhood.” In 2012, the company moved from Galati’s living room into a bona fide office. Then, in 2013, New Opera St. Louis became Winter Opera Saint Louis between its third and fourth seasons for an amusing reason. “Our attorney said that we were no longer new and we needed to change the name,” Galati wryly explains. “Paul Weil [the attorney in question] came up with the name Winter Opera Saint Louis.” She also cites as a high point moving the company’s productions into the Viragh Center. “Our attorney got wind that Chaminade was building a state-of-the-art theater with a pit for the orchestra, and we jumped on the opportunity to have a home for the company,” Galati says. “I had recommendations sent in by two monsignors, alumni of Chaminade and anyone who might have an influence. My next step was contacting the Pope – I was getting into that gorgeous space! “I heard later that the administrator of the school said something to the effect of ‘I don’t know who this Gina Galati is, but she sure knows a lot of people, and she sure is persistent!’” Also, this past summer witnessed the opening of a costume and design shop under the direction of the company’s costume designer, J.C. Krajicek. “We’ve been so busy that we have had to purchase more sewing equipment for the shop,” Galati says, “and even the neighborhood is beginning to bring us alterations, such as bridesmaids’ dresses and some design work from scratch. “We’re very fortunate things have been going well, and the design-and-alterations business is another way to keep cash flow during our season and keeping our

Jorge Pita Carreras, Maria Kanyova, Il Trovatore

name out in the community.” Not everything, naturally, has proceeded apace. “I started the opera company in the financially significant year of 2008,” Galati ruefully recalls. “And after the first production of Rigoletto, we had the world at our feet – and a stock market acting like it was the end of the world. “So we had some financial problems in our second season, and I wasn’t sure how we would come out of it. It affected all of the arts in town. We were a new company without much support, but we were fortunate to make it through.” With the recession (knock wood) ended, she expresses hope for continuing growth in the company’s second decade. “I look forward to seeing the company gain more patrons and financial support and to continually improve the quality of our productions,” Galati says. “We also have in its final stages a national education program to bring opera and classical music to schools in a fun and exciting way. We’re waiting for funding and look forward to announcing our project soon. “We’ve completely outgrown our offices, especially now that our alterations and costume shop is doing so well; we will most likely be moving in the next couple years. We’re looking for a larger rehearsal studio, and of course, I could always use some more help in the office.” Ironically, failure sparked Galati’s present success. As a 19-year-old business major at Saint Louis University, she flunked an econ class, and that “course crash” led her to change her major to music. Yet she’s chosen not to play the “What if … ?” game. “I have actually never speculated how my life would have gone if I would have passed econ,” Galati confesses. “Honestly, I don’t usually question things that cross my path. I just have faith that the Man Upstairs is looking out for me – and for Winter Opera, of course.” Winter Opera Saint Louis, 2322 Marconi Ave., St. Louis, 314-865-0038, | OCtOber 21, 2016

‘TIS THE SEASON: Feature Story


Saint LouiS ouiS Science center




hether you’re hosting an event for 50 people or more than 500, Saint Louis Science Center’s Starlite Events can work with you to plan your big day. The company manages an array of events, from weddings to corporate events, at a variety of venues throughout the Saint Louis Science Center. Joy Schmidt, director of sales for the Saint Louis Science Center, says the company does full-service catering and is exclusive to the center. She recommends choosing the center as a venue because it can offer a “very unique perspective.” “We have a lot of flexibility when it comes to design and layout,” she says. “We don’t offer just your typical banquet food. We prefer to be more cutting edge and personalized when it comes to our food, so we change what we’re serving every four to six months.” The Saint Louis Science Center’s facilities for event spaces are all unique, and include the James S. McDonnell Planetarium, Boeing Hall and the GROW Pavilion. Schmidt says the James S. McDonnell Planetarium can seat up to 260 comfortably. The space includes a pre-function area, where guests can enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. At the end of August, a new LED lighting system was installed. “If you’re looking for truly unique experiences for your guests, we’re able to offer simulators like the 360-degree fighter jet pilot and one where you can learn how to fly a glider,” Schmidt says. “That’s not something you’d typically be able to do.” The GROW Pavilion is the center’s newest space. It offers 5,000 square feet, with two large floor-to-ceiling windows on each

Schmidt notes that it’s great for intimate gatherings and allows “the outdoors to come in.” It sits in the middle of a 50,000-square-foot exhibition space and has the feeling of being out on a farm. “I always tell people this space should rival a winery,” Schmidt says. “You’re surrounded by nature in the middle of St. Louis. It’s all about the farm-to-table food experience.” Boeing Hall offers more than 13,000 square feet and a very neutral, industrial design. A large garage door enables cars to drive in and out, which makes delivery from vendors easy. This space is perfect for large events of more than 400 people. It boasts full sound-and-tech support and a 24-foot screen with an existing projector. “This space is perfect for large galas,” Schmidt says. “There’s also great space for a silent or live auction or a cocktail hour.” She also notes that one big benefit to booking an event at the Saint Louis Science Center is the free parking, since it can offer both the center’s lot and parking at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium on the other side of the highway. To learn more or to book an event, visit 5050 Oakland Ave., St. Louis, 314-533-8179,
