This week, we head to Richmond Heights as part of our weekly series on profiling haunts in the Central Corridor. Mesa Cycles is a one-stop shop for all of your cycling needs.

I was amazed to see that Mesa Cycles offers a wide variety of services including new sales, special orders, apparel and accessory sales, as well as maintenance and repair services. In addition, the owners at Mesa Cycles offer customer service beyond what I have experienced before. Russ and Adrienne Murphy, owners of Mesa Cycles put their passion for cycles into business in 1991. Clayton-Richmond …

You see Chelsea Marie at Ladue's Deer Creek Coffee, but her real calling is mural art and illustrations.
Sometimes, famous people just don’t need a last name. Look at Madonna. How about Rihanna? The great soccer player Pelé? Artists such as Rembrandt, Michelangelo or Titian?

By day, she works 20 to 30 hours a week at Deer Creek Coffee in Ladue. By mid-day, she’s off to her 50-hour a week routine as a mural painter and illustrator, with gigs across the community. She lives with her two cats in Richmond Heights. Although not famous or rich yet, she’d love to combine her passion for serving charity and nonprofits with her motivating work in art. A 2008 graduate…
