What Do You Do, When There's Too Much To Do?

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.

Friday, September 18th:

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is going to be at the Touhill with a tribute to Cab Calloway http://www.touhill.org

Chris Botti will be at the Fox Theatre http://www.fabulousfox.com

Collinsville, IL (just across the river) is having their 25th Annual Italian Fest http://www.italianfest.info

Great Forest Park Balloon Glow & Balloon Race. Glow is friday night with race on Sat. morning. http://www.greatforestparkballoonrace.com

All the haunted house attractions open for the season on Fri. including Creepyworld and The Darkness http://www.scarefest.com

The Omnimax film, Van Gogh: Brush with Genius opens at the Science Center http://slsc.org

Saturday, September 19th:

Looks like you have plenty to choose from! I'd probably end up staying home and reading a book. :-D

Deborah responds: Ahh, Jill. You do tempt.
I could stay in my pjs all weekend. How tempting. And, although I spend my life surrounded by books, I read less now than I did before B&N.

So many choices there - how will you decide?

I do like the thought of curling up with a bottle of vino and a good book - ahhhhh.

Deborah responds:
Jerry, don't make it harder for me to resist the book, OK?
I'm seriously considering the Van Gogh movie Fri afternoon and then the Balloon Glow after that.
On Sat. maybe Faust Park during the day and the Webster Blues Festival in the evening.
Then on Sunday, I'm drawn to the sunrise at Cahokia Mounds and the one sure bet is the Cardinal game in the afternoon.

Barb Cabot:

Seriously have fun whatever you choose and what a wealth of choices to have. Personally for me Chris Botti. Enjoy this time Deborah.

Deborah responds: Yeah, Chris Botti is one of my faves.


BRAVO, an excellent selection of hometown cultural options. See, you spent all that time trying to find a way to get out of town and look what you found in your own back yard. If the timing is right I may even be able to accompany you to at least one event if you want.

Deborah responds: Your on, Sharon. Any or all of it except the ball game on Sunday. It's a fundraiser for Ovarian Cancer and I'm going with my daughters as a surprise for a friend who organized it. What is your schedule for Fri &/or Sat? How about Mary, Jess, Irene, Jane, et al?
