Can't Miss Food and Drink at the Festival of Nations


This weekend Tower Grove Park hosts the International Institute's annual Festival of Nations. Are you going? You should. Between the food and drink, the arts and crafts and the music, dance and other performances, this is one of those events where there really is something for everybody.

Of course, Gut Check's main concern is food and drink. So I'm interested to hear what your must-have dishes are. Leave them in the comments!

My favorite is this amazing lime drink from the Filipino stand. It's essentially limeade, but sprinkled atop the drink is crushed red pepper. I don't know why the combination works so well, but it does. The drink is utterly refreshing.
