Mardi Gras at the Biergarten

The Anheuser-Busch Biergarten is hosting a buffet breakfast on Saturday morning, February 6, 8:00 a.m. to noon, before the Soulard Mardi Gras parade.

After the parade, the Biergarten will have live music from North Of The Quarter, performing from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.


During the Bud Light Grand Parade, which begins at 11:00 a.m., the A-B Tour Center will have its trolley (with a beer/burgers/baseball theme) in the parade.

The Biergarten will be serving $2 Bud Lights, Bloody Marys and Bud Light Mixxtails Hurricanes on Saturday. A special Mardi Gras themed menu is being offer through Tuesday, February 9, at the Biergarten featuring New Orleans style dishes such as Jambalaya, Apple Beignets and Shrimp Po’Boys.

The Biergarten is located at 1200 Lynch Street in St. Louis. If you’re going to visit on Saturday, February 6, your best bet for access is the Pestalozzi bridge over I-44.


Looking Ahead

Now that the first Food Talk STL show has happened, it’s time to look ahead.

On our 2/11 show, an old radio friend, Joy Grdnic, is scheduled to visit. She is the owner of The Fountain on Locust. Nate Selsor, a bartender at Monarch, is on the agenda. And John Johnson, chef for Lumiere Place, is coming by to chat about his participation in St. Louis Mardi Gras.

I plan to share some newsy notes during each show—tidbits from the local food scene, including events and activities.

There are so many things going on for local diners, drinkers (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), food shoppers and cooks. On Food Talk STL, I’ll try to touch on many areas of interest. Thanks for listening!
