Clayton Farmer’s Market
Saturday, December 21
Back by popular demand, the Clayton Farmer’s Market (50 Gay Avenue) is going indoors. This is one of just a handful of Saturdays the market, which features home-grown food and Missouri/Illinois-made items, will be open this winter. http://www.claytonmo.gov/City_of_Clayton_Calendar/Indoor_Farmer_s_Market_s_p2354.htm?EventMode=View&EventOccurrence=1

Bud Light Braggin’ Rights Game – Missouri vs. Illinois
Saturday, December 21
It’s time for the biggest area college basketball game of the year as the Tigers and Illini meet up at 4:30 p.m. at Scottrade Center. Expect a raucous and capacity crowd as usual as Mizzou tries to keep its perfect 10-0 record untouched against 9-2 Illinois. Tickets could be tough to get ahold of at this point, but there are some available on StubHub, starting at $60. http://www.stubhub.com/bud-light-braggin-rights-tickets/bud-light-braggin-rights---illinois-vs-missouri-basketball-12-21-2013-4376218/
