I’ve done the research and I’ve come up with the Top 5 things you should participate in this weekend in St. Louis…in my opinion.
And they are in order of importance.
#1: Attend Broadway Oyster Bar’s Crab Festival! It starts tonight, Friday, July 27th and run through tomorrow night. They’ll have delicious Soft-Shell Crabs, Snow Crab from Alaska, Dungeness Crab from Washington and Blue Crabs from Louisiana. And on top of that, live music. Speakeasy, an awesome “groove rock” band from Springfield will be performing tonight starting at 10pm. Big Brother Thunder and the Master Blasters with special guest Mario Pascal will be performing Saturday night starting at 10pm. Cover is $6 both night.
#2: Ride your bike along side 100s of others for the World Naked Bike Ride happening Saturday evening. Pre-party starts at 6pm. The ride starts at 8pm. It’s probably the most exciting thing you’ll do all Summer.
#3: Participate in Tap ‘N’ Run this Saturday, July 28th at 2pm. This is a 4k “race” with 4 beer chug stations. You basically run, then chug a beer (x4), then chug a beer at the finish line to win. There will also be tons of awards, from Most Original Team Name to Best ‘Stache to Best Costume and more. Check-in is on Saturday from 10am-2pm at Great Grizzly Bear with the races starting shortly after (although you probably need to register in advance and check for packet pick-up times as well). I don’t know all the info so check the Tap ‘N’ Run website to get the full scoop or ask Ryan at @PTtheIslander on Twitter. I’m sure he can get you the details. Leave it to Soulard to be responsible for such an activity…
#4: See Train perform live with Andy Grammer this Sunday July 29 at 7pm at The Peabody Opera House. Ticket prices range from $36-$56 and there are still some available.
#5: Attend the 1st day of the Ram’s Training Camp. Sunday, July 29th is the first Training Camp day at the Edward Jones Dome. It starts at 3:30pm. There will be food tucks: Pi on the Spot, Zia’s, H.A.M.S Deli, Kona Ice St. Louis and Kenrick’s Meat, special events for season ticket holders and special events for the kids. There’s a children’s autograph tent where select players will sign autographs for kids 16 and under after the practice and have the chance to be a Ram’s Rookie and win a t-shirt and chance to be paired with a player for the day. Yay for Football Season!
As you’ll notice, I’ve strategically planned so you can actually attend ALL of these events (although you will want to be careful with how much drinking occurs during the Tap ‘N’ Run if you’re going to be riding a bike naked all around St. Louis afterwards-which is a baaadd idea). Let’s see how many you can complete.
