Enjoy a Drink on the Patio | The Vino Gallery

Thursday-Saturday
11 a.m.-7 p.m.

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend in St. Louis. Enjoy the sunshine with a nice glass of wine on The Vino Gallery’s patio! Strict social distancing practices will be in place:

*The patio is spaced out to comply with safety standards.
*Masks and gloves are worn by servers.
*Copious amounts of hand sanitizer is available.
*Surfaces are frequently sanitized.

They have created a list of over 60 bottles to choose from, as well as a few beer options. Customers can choose to use their glasses or opt for disposable. Each menu is single-use only and comes with a fancy little QR code for easy ordering. You just hover your phone’s camera over it, click the pop up, put your information in, and bam! A server will be out with your bottle of wine to drop off for you to enjoy. You can pay and tip right from your phone.

Savor Something Sweet | The Cup

Thursday-Saturday
11 a.m.-6 p.m.

You now have more opportunities to get your cupcake fix in! The Cup has expanded their hours for online ordering and pick-up. Their new hours through June 6 are Tuesday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Order online or drive up and give them a call to order on the spot. We know you can’t always plan for 🧁 cravings, so they’ll be there waiting for you! Plus, any order of 12 or more cupcakes receives a dozen discount. Unfortunately, they are unable to offer that discount for online orders unless you purchase one of their preselected dozens. You may call them to place an order by phone to receive your dozen discount for mixed dozens.

Thursday, 3 p.m.
