This week’s picks for things to do in St. Louis include seeing the art and hitting up some of the bars—two of the best things the area has to offer. Also, don’t forget to check out our weekend picks:
Legs for a good cause
Ballpark Village invites people with two legs – and four – to its Legs 4 Pints event, which promises an evening of belly rubbing, wagging, and more. The event supports Stray Rescue of St. Louis and adoptable dogs will be attending the event. With a small donation to Stray Rescue, you’ll get cheap drinks and access to specials during the event. The terrace is also dog friendly, should you wish to bring your four-legged friend along. The event will take place in Ballpark Village on Thursday, May 12 at the Budweiser Brew House (601 Clark Avenue, stlballparkvillage.com/events/2022-05-12-paws-4-pints) from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM —Cassidy Waigand

While the world is arguing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessSt. Louis has its own multiverse with Chitra Ganesh: Dreaming in Multiverse† The New York-based artist uses Hindu and Buddhist iconography, comics, science fiction, Bollywood posters and video games – and couples it with her own images to create visions of society in the past, present and future. This is her fourth comic book series and was largely completed during the COVID-19 shutdowns. Some video animations of Ganesh are also part of the show, along with 13 digital prints. Dreaming in Multiverse is on display at Washington University’s Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum (1 Brookings Drive, 314-935-4523) Monday and Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is free to visit.
