Ashley Hasty at Main Street Books


Here's a fun fact for ya: it's an Irish tradition for women whose partners just keep dragging their feet to take control of the situation and propose on leap day... which happens to be this Saturday! So this weekend, grab your partners, head to one of St. Charles' gorgeous romantic locations (maybe the historic cobblestone of Main Street, or one of our delicious local restaurants), and pop the question!

Dirty Fingernails IV

The Foundry Art Centre's current exhibition, Dirty Fingernails IV, continues through March 13. "This exhibition celebrates ‘pure’ printmaking by showcasing the skill and patience of artists who, in an age of seductive high-speed solutions, still prefer to work up a sweat and get their hands dirty."
