Our signature events include regular Public Radio On Tap discussions and MetroQuest, a combination scavenger hunt/trivia contest/pub crawl through the city. We also host a number of other events, including partnerships with other Young Friends groups and organizations.
Public Radio on Tap brings together young professionals in the St. Louis region who are seeking to learn something new, or stay on top of current news trends, in venues throughout the area to debate, discuss and converse over what makes St. Louis tick.
Grab your team and hop on the bus with the Young Friends of St. Louis Public Radio. This year’s MetroQuest will take you traveling down the Grand Corridor for a scavenger hunt, pub crawl and trivia competition to truly test your knowledge of this city. Get extra creative with your team and add a little pizazz to your MetroQuest Shirt. The team with the most creative get-up will be awarded a few extra points!
