Memories and Metamorphosis

Few people can say that they’ve had the same friend through the entirety of their lives, from grade school all the way into college years. I have, and the journey we’ve been on has taught me many lessons about life, loyalty and friendship.

Andrea Favazza, left, and Lorraine Linson became friends in kindergarten and, despite moving into different interests and circles later in school, they managed to remain close friends even today, proving that friendship is more about experiences than similarities. This photo was taken in 2019 as they were graduating from Fort Zumwalt North High School. The two are posing underneath the tree that was their favorite meeting place on their elementary school playground.     Photo by Ann Linson

Nine of the country’s best BBQ pit masters met in St. Louis at Soldiers Memorial to show off the smokey flavors of their own hometowns. The event featured a few St. Louis favorites like Sugar Fire and Pappy’s, as well as BBQ from New York, Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee. 



St. Louis was full of barbecue sauce-covered faces, smoke-filled air and happy tastebuds as crowds gathered in Soldiers Memorial for the Q in the Lou over the weekend, Sept. 25-27.
