This Year’s Biggest Opening is Happening Today in Cortex: Vicia


Chef Michael – Image src:

When I published last June that a new restaurant, Vicia, was opening in Cortex I never thought the day would come. Granted, it has taken Michael and Tara Gallina a while longer than expected for the grand opening. When Vicia was first unveiled, they had hopes of opening at some point in 2016. Regardless, today is the day and they are kicking off by serving their first lunch in Cortex. Next month there is an event, “Opera Tastings at Vicia” which is presented by PNC Arts Alive and St. Louis Realtor- Ted Wight of Dielmann Sotheby’s International Realty, with media sponsors Feast Magazine – Midwest, ALIVE Magazine, Gazelle STL, and Riverfront Times.

Sunday, April 23 at 3 PM - 4:30 PM

The Ultimate Nespresso Guide from Espresso Perfecto

When you think of Nespresso, the first word that enters your mind is likely convenience. Sound about right?

Nespresso machines are the ultimate in convenience, BUT, that’s only half the story.

The other half of the equation is quality. The Nespresso brand really is about quality espresso just as much as it is about ease of use.

If you’re considering a Nespresso you likely understand the value of quality espresso. You can taste the difference between the dessert drinks from Starbucks and a great latte from the local craft coffee shop.

And while you enjoy a great tasting ristretto or cappuccino, you also probably aren’t crazy about the idea of honing some serious at home barista skills. Who has time for that?

In the opinion of many (including myself), a Nespresso machine is a staple for every home.  Picking the right one can prove to be quite a challenge, Michael York’s extensive guide will make it much easier to decide. To ease the research burden, his guide highlights every Nespresso model, the pros and cons of each, who they are best suited for and what to keep in mind when shopping.


Frank Lloyd Wright’s “American Home” – Annual Lecture April 7th


Model B! on West Burnham Street, Milwaukee

Wright created hundreds of drafts for a little-known, early 20th century scheme to provide affordable prefab housing, the American System-Built homes, a concept that quickly fell victim to WWI material shortages and became a footnote in the architect’s career. But while these duplexes and bungalows were tiny, they made an oversized impact on Wright’s career.

In keeping with his vision of creating architect designed homes for all Americans, Frank Lloyd Wright began designing small houses for moderate to low-income workers in 1911. Six of these modest homes, known as American System-Built houses, were constructed on West Burnham Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. As years passed, the homes fell into disrepair and their significance was almost forgotten. Mike Lilek, curator, Burnham Block, will speak about the current restoration process that is bringing back the original luster and charm of these tiny houses.

DATE: Friday, April 7, 2017 @ 7:00 p.m.
PLACE: Saint Louis Art Museum - The Farrell Auditorium
PRICE: Free and open to the public (tickets required)

The lecture is free but tickets are required. Advance tickets are available in person at the Museum’s Information Center, through or by calling 314.535.1111 Read more about these homes here.
