Next week, I'm off to my hometown, St. Louis, to dine inside a unique setting. Casino chefs and facility officials at Lumière Place created a life-size gingerbread house that families may actually dine in through December 26, 2012. Located inside Stadium Sports Bar and Grill at Lumière Place, the massive manor is fourteen-feet tall, ten-feet wide and can accommodate a family of four. While a pre-fixe holiday menu is available, guests will also have the option to order off the menu at Stadium at Lumiere. One hundred percent of each $20.00 reservation fee will go directly to the Center for Hearing and Speech.
