After 10 years of event planning in St. Louis, I have some “favorite dates” the weekend after Thanksgiving is at the very top of that list!


  1. You already have an extended weekend.
  2. Warm, delicious comfort food twice in one week. You can’t go wrong.
  3. It is truly Fall in the Lou!
  4. The week is filled with so much love and gratitude.
  5. Because it is Turkey Day in Kirkwood! Caroline and Greg, our K-Wood couple of 2019 began  the celebration at St. Peter’s and even made a pit stop to the tree market (a very Kirkwood thing to do!)
