Yeah my memory is probably not recalling everything, - In the CWE my world was MP O'Reilly's and the Lynx club - Bar Italia where Starbucks is now o occasion - Coffee houses were not my thing at that age. I just remember it eerie and quite at night where in the day it seemed to enjoy good foot traf...
Honestly I think the city "hit rock bottom" sometime in the early/mid 90's - Your basic premise feels about right and I don't want to be too picky, but I would take issue with some of your details . . . Euclid was even pretty sleepy I'd say it was more different than sleepy. There was plenty going ...
It's definitely been a lot of fun for me, but I get a slightly different experience than most since it's very much become my second home, what with having family there now and all. (And very competent local guides.) Of course the downside to this is that lately, I'm not doing the tourist stuff and c...
With all these breweries opening up lately does anyone have an interactive brewery map they keep updated? I'm trying to keep one up on Google Maps. Have a look at ye olde Historice Brweries of Ste. Louis Mappe . So far it's mostly city limits with a slight fudge to include Schlafly's Maplewood faci...
That is a small kitchen. Almost as small as my sister in law's condo in Saigon. And smaller than the previous two places she rented. (Though probably also cheaper.) That is, I suppose, the price of trendy. Hard to argue with the location.

I really need to investigate some city nicknames! :D Nice catch! :)
For doing something complicated and out of the ordinary it doesn't actually sound that bad to me. If I understand Matt correctly this is the process if you need a variance. If you don't it should be smoother. My only interaction with the permit gang so far was pretty smooth, even though I was a comp...
So, regionally, nationally, internationally, this is STL’s biggest claim to fame in 2017 – crime. Consider that. That’s our biggest issue. Perception is reality for people. So, it doesn’t matter if crime is increasing/decreasing. *now, do you trust the crime stats? I get it, whole other ball of wax...
I suspect it's national code. In most other municipalities you can't connect downspouts to storm drains anymore. That's likely true here as well. Columbia, as I recall, won't even let you build a drain under the sidewalk now. Probably national code and probably related to sewer system settlements. W...
But perhaps not from St. Louis directly? From STL. http://www.departedflights.com/TWSTLhub.html Nice find. Stashing that for future reference. Looks like it was nonstop, even. (Seeing as there are several direct flights that are not listed if I read my schedule correctly, presumably since they had ...
At about the same time that Roberts was going up there was a story in the New York Times about St. Louis loft boom. Perceptions were almost sky high. That's about when Bottle District was new, and quite a lot of us believed it could happen. (Albeit scaled back a little from its soaring ambitions.) T...
TW had routes to SMF, JAX, BDL, ORF but not RIC and I believe you are correct about WN not having nonstops from STL to those markets. Incorrect, TWA started service to RIC in 1999. But perhaps not from St. Louis directly? (Unless that changed by 1999.) Per my June 1992 schedule there were two daily...
^ Delmar Hall was Big Shark Bicycles. Big Shark wanted to move and Joe Edwards wanted a mid-size venue. I don't think it was ever in any danger. I think I'd been under the impression it was incorporated into the Everly when in reality it's merely next door and the Everly lobby simply responds to it...
Hell, the Everly itself preserved Delmar Hall. In what sense? Well now! I understood it was supposed to, there's still a website for a space called Delmar Hall, and it looks much the same as the old one. I guess the renderings were a little misleading. Or I just didn't read the fine print carefully...
Yeah, I hear you. Despite being so close to Broadway Oyster and the stadium it does quickly become outskirt-esque right around there. The trestles are pretty cool. I think SP (if not someone else) posted some good photography of them some time back. I recall hearing not too long ago about a potenti...
Hell, the Everly itself preserved Delmar Hall. That's actually not a small thing. Three examples does not make a trend, but two in close proximity both geographically and temporally . . . that starts to look more convincing. That said, yes, there's plenty of empty space to fill up to the fourish sto...
Just hanging about it amazes me how much hate I've heard about the Everly in certain circles. Sadly, I suspect Wabash is right. There will be pushback.

I don't remember, was "Ho Pizza" St. Louis Style?
You know it!
I'm just bent enough that the first thing I thought when I saw that was Ho Chi Minh: Uncle Ho style, with the salted squid and the hot sauce. Served up with a side of triple three beer and a lecture on sustainable agriculture.
This is going to sound odd, but that height looks good in context. And I can't imagine they're losing that many apartments, as the deleted floor would appear to have been a parking floor with perhaps ten apartments wrapped around the outside. Should still be at least 155 units. Looks like it'll prob...
^^ Sorry, didn't follow the KC line's development. I just did some quick Googling to see if there were over budget issues and it doesn't appear so. (One article here ). So at half the price did we get a steal of a deal for the Loop Trolley? :) I would make that case, yes. Of course, it's like, hey,...
Don't tell the Crusaders. They destroyed the original even though it was was of the seven wonders of the ancient world Well, that's why we put this one up high where they can't reach it. Heck, maybe it will absorb the brunt of religious fervor and leave the real wonder in the picture unmolested. Ki...
At this point all their pilots can fly every plane also, correct? Once you start adding different planes you have to have different pilots for different planes. I am sure that isn't a huge deal but right now they have lots of flexibility. With the MAX being able to make Europe routes/Hawaii, I woul...
It's nice. You guys are doing good work. Very good work, even. I've long felt Lafayette Square was a little off-putting, but you make it seem more human and approachable. Can't wait to see what else you do. :)
Seems about comparable to me to the strip mall with the Schnucks, which I would say is the dominant feature on the north side of the road. The Brown Shoe campus is perhaps more urban, but it still feels like a suburban office campus to me, as far back from the road as it sits. I won't say as I like ...
