1. Get some ribs and binge on House of Cards

Finally, Netflix is releasing Season 2 of its Kevin Spacey series, House of Cards. Even better, all thirteen of the episodes are available. We suggest picking up some ribs from Sugarfire Smokehouse (9200 Olive Boulevard, Olivette; 314-997-2301) or Bud's Smokehouse (1135 South Big Bend Boulevard, Richmond Heights; 314-781-2345) so you can pretend you are eating all alone at Freddy's, just like Frank Underwood. Add a glass of bourbon, neat, to really bring it home.
