Who’s NOT planning a BBQ this weekend? If the weather holds and you’ve got propane or charcoal, chances are, you’re grilling something with your friends and family. Here, new ideas for keeping your costs down. Sponsored by Home Depot.
Here at Patch, we like to be thrifty, so we talked to two barbeque experts and uncovered some really good ideas to help you save money on your next outdoor party. 1. Start with a marinade. This means planning ahead -- say, Friday. But it’s worth it, says Rick Browne, host of Barbeque America on PBS, because you can pass up that well-marbled ribeye steak and buy a less tender and less expensive choice to grill like a flank steak or chuck steak. Just marinate it or brine for one or two days and then cook long and slow on the barbeque grill to break down tissues but maintain moisture. “You need to include an acid in the marinade, perhaps juice, vinegar or soy sauce, but avoid cola which is so acidic it can turn meat into a soggy mess.” Try …

The Missouri Department of Transportation reports on its St. Louis work zones for May 23-29.
To help people travel around Missouri this Memorial Day weekend, the Missouri Department of Transportation is restricting construction work on interstates and state highways.

Nationwide, gas prices were predicted to be lower this summer compared to the last three years, but that won't translate into savings at the pump this Memorial Day weekend, experts said. "Motorists this year are facing rising gas prices heading into the Memorial Day holiday," said Michael Green, a AAA spokesman, adding that Memorial Day 2013 would probably be the most expensive since 2011. In past years, prices have declined heading into early summer as oil refineries produced more gasoline to meet expected summer driving demand. This year, though, Midwest refineries haven't …

The soda fountain and restaurant opened Monday in the former home of Dr. Jazz on Gore Avenue.
A Sunset Hills couple is helping the soda fountain make a comeback in Webster Groves. After Dr. Jazz closed on Gore Avenue earlier this year, Fizzy's began to move in a few months after the space was up for lease. Owner Michelle Bray and her husband, Tom, said they've made a point to hit soda fountains on their travels across the country, and wanted to keep the idea behind Dr. Jazz. Fizzy's opened Saturday, just in time for business from Webster Grooves music festival attendees, which took place along Gore Avenue. "We're hoping to be a place where kids can come after school, or people can visit from down the street on their lunch break," Michelle told Patch. "We love the soda fountain and Webster's a great place." Join Sunset Hills-…
