We’re in the run-up to that fateful day where green beer and pissing as close to a parade as possible without people knowing becomes commonplace in our fine city. It’s that weekend where calls from drunken exes and your friend Shelly, you know the one, happen in the afternoon instead of the dead at night where they should be. Of course, now you can experience a surge – a surge in Uber pricing!
Before all that happens, get ready for the weekend and have a laugh with the great St. Louis comedy shows happening this week. Be entertained and don’t forget to wear green!
