When: Fri., March 18, 6-10 p.m. 2016
Most places that sell you glassware expect you to fill it at a later time. Third Friday: Steinfest throws that idea right out the door. This month's Third Friday at Third Degree Glass Factory (5200 Delmar Boulevard; 314-367-4527 or www.stlglass.com) features a sale of handmade, blown glass beer steins — and purchase of one gets you two beers from Urban Chestnut the same night. Take that, convention! Of course, this being a Third Friday party means there will also be food (the Completely Sauced food truck serves up its New Orleans-style fare), live music by Dang!, hands-on glass art activities and an art show in the East Gallery (Steven Walden's paintings of superheroes and their archenemies, Heroes and Villains). The whole shebang runs from 6 to 10 p.m. tonight and admission is free, but glass art activities cost $25 to $35.
Price: free admission, $25-$35 for glass activities
