February beach party! More photos below.
It's been a dreary, cold, stormy past couple of days for St. Louis. Depressing, right? Daily RFT is here for you -- or rather, a bunch of people who decided to take off their clothes and pretend it's not the worst time of winter are here for you.

For your viewing pleasure, we've collected photos of not one, but two local events over the weekend that involved some spirited defiance of the awfulness of February. We've got the Polar Plunge into Creve Coeur Lake -- and the Beach Party at the Missouri Botanical Garden's Climatron (which was part of the Tower Grove Pride initiative we wrote about last week).

Take a look at how much fun they are having in the photos below and pretend it's summer!

In all kinds of weather the Fox is still kicking the crap out of Kiel Opera Houe and MUNY while they are bound and gagged and helpless. The Hartman RFT every once and a while would take the midtown thugs to task. You have not done that in a long time. This is the most brutal and destructive force ever come to power in this region. It's like that thing in "Slither' The one in the barn, remember?

We dont have the winters we used to. And spring is more like summer. Verizon opens May 9th. MUNY should open May 10th. Unless they are in different weather zones or on different continents.
