If it smells like someone's cooking up something good, they just might be. Chefs all over the metro area are getting ready for this weekend's Taste of St. Louis.
This year's event will feature 46 restaurants, bakeries and caterers offering dishes for $2 to $7 each.
Besides edible offerings, the event features a Culinary show, musical performances and a hot sauce showcase. More than 400-thousand people turned out for last year's Taste.
This year's event kicks off at Soldier's Memorial in downtown St. Louis Friday at 4:00 p.m. and runs through Sunday.
Information about festival hours, parking, featured restaurants and special presentations can be found on the TasteSTL website.
After lunch tomorrow, customers of six area Qdoba restaurants will have to fund another place to eat.
The Mexican restaurant chain will be permanently closing six restaurants Wednesday at 3 PM. The closures include restaurants at Mid Rivers Mall, Wentzville, Euclid Ave, Olive at Mason Road, Washington, and Fairview Heights locations.
A Qdoba spokesperson says several other metro locations will remain open.
