ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Dine around the world this Thursday at the 10th annual South Grand Dine-Around. Rachel Witt of the South Grand Cultural Alliance says 20 restaurants are participating. Some, like Guerilla Street Food and Mangia, are offering small plates. Witt says you get five tickets.

"You can use them for small plates, drinks, and dessert, so any way you want to mix it up, you can with the set menu that we have for those 20 participating restaurants,” she says.

There are mock-tails and cocktails, meat and vegetarian dishes, and of course, dessert.

"Rooster will be offering a mini Nutella crepe on top of Tower Grove Creamery and Gelateria with your choice of ice cream and gelato,” she says.
