Megan Pecella created a fun slideshow of unique dining and beverage experiences only found in St. Louis in a special piece she did for USA TODAY.
Creativity abounds in the greater St. Louis area. Pockets of the city are brought to life with historic architecture, street art and murals. Downtown’s Citygarden is filled with commissioned art, including a video installation, fountains and several statues. This creativity spills into the food and beverage industry, resulting in unique craft beers, street food that provides an explosion of flavors, and well-crafted classic Italian and American dishes. Make no mistake: St. Louis is a food town.
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--It’s not every day that a talking peanut blows out 100 candles on a cake in Manhattan’s Times Square. Today, Mr. Peanut made that image a reality. This morning, Planters rang in the centenarian birthday of Mr. Peanut, and kicked off a year-long celebration of the nuttiest brand icon in history. This was not Mr. Peanut’s first time in the heart of midtown—he graced a Times Square billboard in 1937 and has rolled through countless Macy’s Day Parade® processions during the past century.
“Mr. Peanut’s continued popularity is a testament to America’s love of Planters nuts,” says Sean Marks, vice president of marketing at Planters. “Mr. Peanut’s 100th birthday will pay homage to his lifetime of nutty achievements by making celebrations even more remarkable for fans this year.”
