Built by locals, SELECT will feature trendsetters and neighborhood luminaries, and give them a platform to help readers get to know the best new happenings in the city, and rediscover its hidden gems. Created by Scott Steinberg – a TV host and writer for outlets ranging from CNN to Rolling Stone, we are excited to welcome all guests for this special event.

Our Partners

Supported by brands that believe in our mission is a driving force for SELECT's development. We are pleased to welcome the Young Friends of the Central West End Association, STL Transplants, TechArtista and our food and drink vendors, including: Seoul Taco, Thai202 and Four Hands Brewery.

Our Entertainment

We will be entertained by: Scarlet Tanager, The Vigilettes and Radames. Check back for more information, and get excited for a fun evening of city's best entertainment.

About SELECT

The new magazine is designed to provide 25-45 year old readers looking for the best of the city’s food, dining, and entertainment scene – including the nearly 15,000 millennials who have moved to St. Louis in recent years – with an inside look at the city's top bets. It’s our pleasure to remind audiences why STL is growing by leaps and bounds, and becoming a force to be reckoned with in the region.

February First Friday

West End Grill and Pub 

Some venues have a metaphysical quality that’s hard to capture and impossible to fabricate. The Romans call it genius loci, or “the spirit of the place”. West End Grill and Bar, warmly known by CWE locals as WEGAP, has it. It’s exemplary of its kind. What a way to kick off CWEA’s 2017 First Friday Happy Hours!
 
Join us on Friday, February 3 from 5-6:30 when we’ll gather at "The Friendly Neighborhood 'Neighborhood Pub'". We’ll enjoy small eats and liquid treats as we bask in WEGAP’s unshakable sense of place in our neighborhood.
 
RSVP quickly. This First Friday is being capped at 40!
