Thursday, April 12
"Soles for Senegal" Art Show & Shoe Drive
Regional Arts Commission, 6128 Delmar
$5 and a pair of tennis shoes (new or lightly worn), 6:30-9 p.m., all ages, 314-558-4734,

People, it's home to one of our sister cities (another St. Louis, in fact): there's just one reason to be interested in the fate of Senegal, a place of much creativity and music and natural beauty, according to one recent visitor. So, until your own feet can hit those shores, why not take an evening to send some shoes in your place, via this fund- and shoe-raiser? Art and jewelry will be sold, West African food and entertainment are your knowing you're making a difference in the lives of Senegalese children.

Green Day in Maplewood
Starts at Schlafly Bottleworks, 7260 Southwest Blvd.
$15 (includes lunch), events from 9 a.m.-2 p.m., 314-645-3607,

There's plenty of eco-friendliness packed into a few short blocks along Manchester Road in Maplewood, and today's the day to experience it firsthand: from the opening talk, "What is a Green Building?" -- presented by two local architects -- to breakout sessions from a tour of the Bottleworks garden, test-drive of a hybrid Ford Escape and a walk inside the LEED-certified Enterprise Rent-a-Car facility. Lunch at the Bottleworks from noon-2 will feature a keynote speech by Matt Belcher, president of the STL Home Builders Association, who will no doubt mention recent news from the group's green building convention that just wrapped here a few weeks ago. If you can't spend the whole morning, reservations just for lunch are okely-dokely.

Sunday, April 29
Voices of Darfur event
Sheldon Concert Hall, 3648 Washington Blvd.
Free, all ages, 4 p.m., 314-442-3871

Though he didn't dwell on it in yesterday's appearance at the Wash U Assembly Series, "Hotel Rwanda" protagonist Paul Rusesabagina has, in past appearances, likened the situation he lived through to the ongoing crisis in Darfur: if you need to find out more or want to join with other concerned St. Louisans, this afternoon's program is for you. A message from Dr. David Greenshaw (of Eden Seminary) will be followed by performances and spoken word, including an impressive roster of local stars: Denise Thimes, The Apostlez, K. Curtis Lyle, Alexandrea Petrullo and Vivian Watt.
