In This Week's Issue: West End Pub & Grill and Blue Machine



My review of the West End Grill & Pub is now available online. Click here to read. Also in this week's issue: Kristie hopes Blue Machine can help her get through boot-camp fitness class.

And! This week's Gut Check column includes last week's news about the changes at Monarch and Monarch's owners closing in on a deal for the old Balaban's space. However, after today's issue went to press, my counterpart at the Post-Dispatch, Joe Bonwich, reported that the deal has hit a snag. Check out his blog, Off the Menu, for the full report.
