There were several exciting openings this month, though we're still waiting impatiently on a few (ahem, Blueprint and Strange Donuts). We got a first look at The Dam in Tower Grove and tried out the new Biergarten at the Anheuser-Busch brewery. Unfortunately, Local Harvest Cafe & Grocery in Kirkwood closed, as did Jim Edmonds 15 Steakhouse. It'll be re-opening soon as The Precinct to accommodate the new police headquarters next door.

As always, please let us know in the comments of any openings or closings we missed.
