You Hold the Key

To holiday help


There are a couple of reasons why you should head to the Pepper Lounge & Eatery (2005 Locust Street; 314-241-2005) at 7 p.m. tonight, and a pretty important one involves free beer and wine. You've either been out shopping all day (pity) or you've had to work, which is much worse, and you're definitely interested in a little woe-is-me-ing into a glass or bottle. But another reason tops even that: The Keystone of St. Louis fundraiser held at this spicy spot benefits the Saint Louis Crisis Nursery, an organization that helps children in emergency need. And what's more important than kids this time of year? The party runs until 11 p.m., and the cover is $25 in advance (at or $30 at the door — a very affordable price for all you early-bird shoppers out there! And in addition to the drinks, you also get appetizers and the warm, fuzzy feeling that only comes with knowing you've helped those less fortunate.
