Xanadu, loosely known as a mythical home of the nine muses in Greek mythology, is the theme of the 20th anniversary of St. Louis’s First Night, a family-friendly celebration. In addition to taking in musical and dance performances, visitors can write a wish for 2012 and add it as a “sprinkle” on a 12-foot-tall artificial birthday cake.
