May 2010

Landmarks Association of St. Louis begins Preservation Week 2010 May 7-16. Ten days of events, lectures, tours, movie screenings and even wine tastings. All celebrating the historically built environment of St. Louis. My personal favorites are the tours: Lemp Brewery, Midtown Motor Alley, Crown Square (14th Street Mall), Beaux Arts Building, St. Louis Police Station and Clemens Mansion. Please visit Landmarks website for complete details and up-to-date details.

     St. Louis Mercantile Library presents The 4th Annual St. Louis Fine Print, Rare Book & Paper Arts Fair. The event opener is The Special Preview Gala Friday Evening May 14 from 6 pm to 9 pm. Enjoy cocktails, appetizers and early buying privileges to benefit the acquisition and preservation fund of the Mercantile Library ($50 per person - $90 per couple).

     Inside St. Louis: Eat-Rite or Don’t Eat At All! And you can do just that 24/7. The city diner is located on the southern edge of Chouteau’s Pond (although it has been drained over 159 years). Ron “Johnny Rabbitt” Elz narrates the scene dating back to 1760. Also, learn about the Powers family and their deep roots in St. Louis’ most popular diners.

     Insider Tip: “If you order anything to go, you must take it to go, no more ordering to go then eating it here”, so the sign says.
