October 2009

     Since 1919 the Yacovelli Family has been providing St. Louis with some of the area’s finest Italian food at modest prices. I had the pleasure of dining at Yacovelli’s twice this past week, the food and service was perfect. 4th Generation Joe Yacovelli (SLU Grad) was on hand to oversee the front and the back of the house. Kerry a veteran server of 23 years provided excellent service with a smile. Sunday afternoons are very lively as they feature “all you can eat while you’re in your seat!” family style fried chicken dinners. Secondly there was a large banquet going on, prepared by banquet cooks of 30 plus years; Liz and Dorothy.

     Insider Tip: Do not be detoured by a crowded parking lot. The place is huge, plenty of seating and parking in Yacovelli Plaza towards the rear.

     The all new Pistons & Pumpers antique fire engine and classic truck show is Saturday October, 10, 2009 at the Museum of Transportation. Vintage fire apparatus and trucks of all types will be on display from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. In addition the Show Me! Safety Fair will feature modern fire equipment and safety demonstrations for the entire family.

The Truck Show and Safety Fair are free!

     In addition the Earl C. Lindburg Automobile Center is featuring a fresh new display of antique trucks and fire engines including Antique Warehouse’s 1932 General Monarch Pumper. The auto collection exhibit is free with paid Museum admission.
