The Haps: Glory Daze & London Calling at the Gramophone

London Calling, a group of well-known St. Louis DJs, is famous for playing British and other international dance hits.

The Haps: Third Degree Glass Factory

The idea of glassblowing blows my mind. When I look at an intricate glass vase with swirls of colors and perfect curves, I can’t even begin to imagine how it came from a molten glob of material at the end of what’s essentially a straw.

The Haps: let it snow, snow, snow

Face it: Snow can suck, and that’s not just the Floridian in me talking. It’s not only cold, but it’s also hazardously slippery, it melts into slush, and it looks nasty after a few days.

The Super Bowl, for those who don’t already know, is at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday on CBS. The teams fighting for glory this year are the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints, with The Who performing during halftime.

The Haps: The Morgan Street experience

We’ve been back in school now for a whole week, so chances are you’re already ready for an escape. Last Thursday was “Senior Night” on Laclede’s Landing, and it reminded me of how easily that place can make you forget classes or forget the whole night if you’re not careful.
