As some of you know from my tweets and facebook posts, I'm feeling a little sorry for myself.
Dan is going to Phoenix next weekend for a few days of golf with a buddy, and leaving me at home alone.
Because my holiday bookfair season is going into full gear soon, it will be my last totally free weekend until Christmas. I want to do something, but don't know what. So I decided to see what might be happening here in St. Louis. I came up with just a few ideas.
