Cheer on the Blues– April 19 – Scottrade Center – Is this the year that the Blues will win their long-awaited Stanley Cup? Only time will tell, but regardless, it's the playoffs, and our hometown hockey team needs their fans now more than ever. Saturday's game starts at 2 p.m., and as of this writing, tickets are still available. You can also watch the Blues on NewsChannel 5. To buy tickets, go to http://bit.ly/1jLvVxB.
Easter Concours d'Elegance Car Show – April 20 –Forest Park – Cap off a great Easter Sunday by checking out countless classic cars at Forest Park. Last year's Eater Show had 70 colorfully cool, classic cars on display. The best part? You guessed it: it's free. For more information, go to http://bit.ly/QeuIFa.
Fed Cup Playoff: USA vs. France – April 19-20 – Chaifetz Arena – We've given a lot of attention to hockey lately, but we can't forget about ladies tennis! The Gateway City hosts the 2014 Fed Cup Group Playoff between the U.S. and France. Australian Open semi-finalist Sloane Stephens leads the U.S. squad, which will duke it out against a French team led by Amelie Mauresmo. The winner of this best-of-five match advances to the 2015 World Group. Tickets are $40 to $95 for single-day. For more information, go to http://bit.ly/1eAPV7b.
12th Night – April 19-20 – Washington University – If you've seen the classic film "She's the Man" starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Bynes (pre-craziness), you're probably familiar with the Shakespeare comedy "12th Night," which tells the story of a shipwrecked brother and sister who get lost in a case of mistaken identity. This version is set in 1950s Havana, so you know it's good. Tickets are $10 to $15. For more information, check out http://bit.ly/1pb9mYN.
Dinosaurs In Motion Exhibit – April 18-20 – Saint Louis Science Center – Even though the event is probably targeted at kids, let's be real: you're never too old to stop appreciating dinosaurs. The interactive exhibit demonstrates how one artist creates moveable dinosaur sculptures. It offers important lessons about kinetics, biomechanics and robotics, and gives you the chance to manipulate the dinosaurs with pulleys, levers and remote controls. So, pretty much, it's like a less-controlled
"Jurassic Park" (except totally different). For more information, go to http://bit.ly/1j2zrBU.
