Stuff To Do

Stuff to do November 2014

Uncorked! A Holiday Wine Experience
Nov. 14 – 6 to 8:30 p.m., Louis & Clark Community College, N. O. Nelson Campus, 600 Troy Road, Edwardsville, 618.307.5909, bin51wines.com

Bin 51’s fifth annual Uncorked! party serves two purposes: to raise money for the Lynne F. Solon Foundation to fight diabetes and to help you plan ahead for your holiday beverage needs. Guests can taste a variety of wine, beer and spirits and then place orders for them at special pricing. Mingle with reps from Meeker Winery, The Big O and more while enjoying catered hors d’oeuvres and a silent auction.


Gingerbread House Contest Fundraiser
Nov. 15 to 23, Saint Louis Galleria, 1155 Saint Louis Galleria, Richmond Heights, 314.771.4411, lydiashouse.org

Everyone from professional chefs to high schoolers will take inspiration from national landmarks to create stunning gingerbread constructions during this annual event to support Lydia’s House, which helps those affected by domestic violence. Elaborate past creations have been inspired by Dr. Seuss, fairy tales, Peter Pan and even National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. It all starts Nov. 15 at 2 p.m. when the pieces are unveiled to the public.
 

Share the Harvest
Nov. 15 to 25, various locations, 573.634.2322, mdc.mo.gov

During Missouri’s short 10-day deer season for gun hunters, the Department of Conservation and Operation Food Search sponsor the annual Share the Harvest program. Hunters bring a deer to a participating local processing shop and donate part or all of their kill to OFS. Area processors such as G&W Meat, John’s Butcher Shoppe, Kenrick’s Meats and more will turn quarry into donations to feed the hungry. Prefer to hunt without a rifle? The program runs all deer season long through Jan. 15


Whiskey in the Winter
Nov. 22 – 6 to 9:30 p.m., Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch, 315 Chestnut St., St. Louis, whiskeyinthewinter.com

It may be wise to get a room at the Hyatt Regency downtown for a short walk to the elevator after imbibing at Whiskey in the Winter. The third annual sample-fest features more than 200 whiskeys – a bevy of single malt and blended scotch, bourbon, Irish, Tennessee, Canadian, Missouri, Japanese and international whiskies – as well as talks by master distillers, seminars, whiskey-inspired foods and whiskey cocktails. Tickets available online.
 

Schlafly Winter Market
Nov. 22 – 8:30 a.m. to noon, Schlafly Bottleworks, 7260 Southwest Ave., Maplewood, 314.241.2337, schlaflyfarmersmarket.com

One of the most popular winter markets of the season is this month at the Schlafly Bottleworks. This cold-weather version of the Schlafly Farmers Market can swell to more than 30 vendors during the run-up to the holidays. Shop for local produce, meats, cheeses, baked goods and other specialty products to make Thanksgiving more festive – and local.


Holiday Cooking Classes
Dates, times and Dierbergs locations vary, 636.812.1331, dierbergs.com/school

When the holidays come around, a lot of us put on our invisible chef’s toque and desperately hope it fits. Don’t just fake it – nail it. Holiday classes at Dierbergs School of Cooking allow you to practice your holiday menu long before your party. Consider instruction in classes like The Best of Holiday Gifts for Giving to make smoked sea salt-double chocolate turtles or the Holiday Cookie Bar Workshop for Southern-style pecan bars. You can also try your hand at bacon-tomato mini tarts at the Make It, Take It: Sweet & Savory Party Pastries class or enjoy High Tea for the Holidays with lavender scones with lemon curd. Register for classes online.
