Today's weather not enough to get you excited about this weekend? How about a friendly reminder that today and tomorrow Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street; Web site) hosts its annual Stout & Oyster Festival.

The festival runs from 5 p.m.-midnight today and noon-midnight tomorrow. Pair oysters from both coasts -- raw and cooked -- with Schlafly's Oatmeal, Kaldi's Coffee and Nitro Irish stouts. Plus, as always, superstar shuckers from across the country.

Not sure which oysters to try? Read our feature story from last month on the state of the oyster nation.

A word of advice to Schlafly-festival newbies: Expect a huge crowd. Go early, if possible.
