  • Isn't Mardis Gras in St. Louis kind of lame?

    I do music every night---it was fun tonight. (thirty miles south of the Arch). About ten o'clock, I announced "this will be the last song---oh! wait a minute! This isn't Soulard---party on!" What must people from New Orleans think about a town whose bars close at 11 on the Saturday, and is it 8 on Fat Tuesday? I understand why---it just strikes me as strange that teenagers can bully the police into setting time parameters so different than non mardi gras nights. Maybe I am looking at it wrong----I will have a good time at work Tuesday---and won't stop until 1 a.m. Wednesday.

    Usually the bars are open late tonight in Soulard... I think it's lame....

      It is only in Soulard, not the whole town. Just stroll up broadway/7th street toward Paddy O's, Broadway Oyster Bar or the Landing and you are fine. If I owned a business in Soulard I would not mind closing at 10 or 11 because I would open up at 8am if not earlier. That is a full day right there.

          Not only do they not know where to go, but its all result of that 'dust-up' a few years back on Fat Tuesday nite...something aboot pepper spray, horses and too much mammary exposures....

            My favorite part yesterday happened 5 minutes after I parked.

            I got to Soulard late, about 4, and was heading toward McGurk's and this guy and gal, drunk, are walking back to their car. They stop, she gets on a step and he turns around to give her a piggyback ride. She says, "Dude, don't drop me again."

            I had to stay and watch as the "again" tipped me off to the impending doom of this particular plan.

            Bam! Down they went in literally 3 seconds. They hadn't even taken a step.

            Dude. Can. Fly.

              isn't that kind of an oxymorn?

                Sounds like a great place for a movie camera.

                  You know it! I just can't wait to see the one a guy at work got

                  And yes, people don't know about what happened with that pepper spray, horses and too much mammary exposures. I got hit with pepper spray in 98 and that stuff hurts like hell.
