Missouri taxpayers will not cover the costs of damages that may result from defamation lawsuits filed against three state senators who incorrectly identified a Kansas man as the shooter at the Chiefs’ Super Bowl parade, Gov. Mike Parson said Monday. In a letter to the commissioner of the Office of Administration, the state agency that certifies payments from Missouri’s legal expense fund, Parson wrote that no payments related to the lawsuits should be certified “without my approval or a court order.” “I cannot justify money spent in this way,” Parson wrote.

To celebrate 60 years of serving up one of the most St. Louis-style pizzas in St. Louis, Imo’s is again collaborating with a favorite RFT illustrator — this time, to produce a unique commemorative poster. Illustrator and cartoonist Dan Zettwoch, who famously designed the chain’s anniversary pizza box, has brought his signature style to the poster, which depicts the very first Imo’s, which was located at Thurman and Shaw avenues. “The poster pays homage to the humble beginnings of Imo’s Pizza the year 1964, when Ed and

Did you know that this year BiState Development, the agency responsible for Metro Transit in St. Louis, will cover the annual fare for more than 50,000 riders with the help of corporate donors? No? Well, that’s because they won’t. Instead, BiState will spend $52 million on faregates blocking MetroLink access and new surveillance technologies at stations — what would be enough money to provide nearly 56,000 riders with free monthly metro passes for the entirety of a year.

When did St. Louis start feeling so down in the dumps? Maybe the malaise started during COVID and just never lifted? Maybe we could blame Kim Gardner, or all those teeth-rattling potholes?

Justin Timberlake is trying to bring his sexy back and to St. Louis. The somewhat-tarnished-by-his-ex’s-allegations-of-cheating-and-mind-fucking pop star announced the final nine stops on his current tour today, and we’re on the list. At 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 19, Timberlake will step on stage at Enterprise Center (1401 Clark Avenue) for an evening of song, dance and a light show not to be missed.

St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones lifted the city’s short-lived hiring freeze on Monday following the end of Missouri’s legislative session on Friday. Jones cited the legislature’s failure to pass any laws that would damage the city’s ability to collect an earnings tax as her reasoning for ending the freeze. The hiring freeze took effect March 29 as a result of budgetary concerns and a sharp divide between the Mayor’s Office and the Board of Aldermen. 

9 Mile Garden (9375 Gravois Road, Affton) is getting a new addition that’s a bit unusual for a food truck destination: a permanent fixture. Today, the food truck garden announced it would be opening 9 Mile Garden Cafe, a drive-thru and walk-up coffee truck that will be parked on the grounds in perpetuity. The cafe, which will open at the end of this month, will offer a standard coffee menu, as well as specialty drinks such as a Whipped Mazagran, Carmel Cafe Da Olla and more.

After a highly exclusive soft opening phase in April that left the public eagerly anticipating the grand opening, Ramsay’s Kitchen by Gordon Ramsay has finally opened at the Four Seasons St. Louis at 999 North Second Street in downtown St. Louis and is now accepting reservations from the general public. “St. Louis is an incredible foodie destination, with its own vibrant Midwest flavours and influences,” Ramsay in a release. “I’m delighted to open Ramsay’s Kitchen at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis, a stunning restaurant with amazing views of the Gateway Arch and famed Mississippi River.

Last Friday, the Missouri Botanical Garden did something sure to shock the conscience of every good St. Louisan: They served up cicadas. The cicada scampi and spicy deep-fried cicada — yes, those were the actual dish names — were part of an cooking demonstration at MoBOT’s Sophia M. Sachs Butterfly House, a fun afternoon inspired by the cicadapocalypse now blanketing a big swath of St. Louis County with the long-gestating bugs. But not everyone found the idea so fun.

When a kitchen fire broke out and shuttered the doors at beloved Tower Grove South bar Stella Blues (3269 Morgan Ford Road) in early April, the owner and staff vowed the closure would be temporary. But if we know anything from the rash of kitchen fires that have closed local restaurants in the last few years, there’s no such thing as a sure return.  Yet things are looking up for Stella Blues — thanks to strong community support and good insurance coverage.
