Feel the Magic


While several charming neighborhoods host wonderful house tours, only one such event includes a landmark with a name like the Magic Chef mansion (pictured). Even if you don't know what this place is, it just sounds cool, doesn't it? See the beautifully restored interior of this 12,000-square-foot (!) home during the Grand South Grand House & Garden Tour, happening from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (April 19 and 20). In addition to the Magic Chef maison, your $15-to-$18 ticket gets you into a number of other houses and gardens in five neighborhoods, plus live music, a wine-tasting and more. Your magical journey aboard a free shuttle begins at South Grand Boulevard and Pestalozzi Street at the entrance to Tower Grove Park.
