    Why Are We Here?

    While ISIS is seeming to cause havoc and trauma, Christians being killed for their faith know that they are living and dying for something greater. They have found that real joy comes from God, even in tragedy. In our comfortable world in America, what can we learn from this unwavering faith?

Timeline on the Town

MBU


By JERICA DRAGO

     Recently, I had one of the best dates I’ve been on in quite some time.
     Down at Grand Blvd. and Washington Ave. sits one of St. Louis’ greatest time capsules: The Fabulous Fox Theater, built in the 1920s.
     Seeing a live production is a really interesting approach to a date night and is always worth the money.
     Starting at $25 a ticket, this may not be the cheapest option for a night on the town, but the effort will definitely be appreciated.
     After your show, head over to my favorite underrated restaurant in the area. Located less than 10 minutes from the theater on Lucas Ave. is Mango Peruvian Cuisine, and it will blow you away.
     They offer a fantastic dinner special with your ticket that runs from 3-6 p.m. For $20 a guest, you can each select from one of two appetizers, one of four entrees and then finally from one of two desserts.
     Don’t worry about filling up on the table starter; the plantains and salsa verde are great to keep munching on throughout all the courses and once you start on them, it's nearly impossible to stop.
     For your meal, might I suggest the Aguadito de Pollo soup followed by the Langostinos al Ajo Pasta and finished off by the Pionono dessert. Altogether, this date will cost you about $100 but it will provide an unforgettable evening.
