Mini-Flood 35: STL-Style

Clever design duo, Jeff and Randy Vines set up shop on a corner storefront along Cherokee Street five years ago (in 2010), and built a t-shirt empire. That said, STL-Style is not merely a St. Louis-themed apparel boutique; it is the ethos for an entire movement to revitalize the city, fueled by two vocal brothers whose love for STL is without limits.

As STL-Style turned five, the Vines and 400 or so of their closest friends celebrated with the Half-Decade Escapade, an afternoon filled with food, booze, live music, and all of the color and character that makes this business truly special. ¬†Photo Flood Saint Louis wouldn’t have missed this event for the world; hopefully you didn’t either!

Cherokee Street is the proud host to St. Louis’ most eclectic celebration. The Cinco de Mayo Festival celebrates Mexican heritage, but also places on display the multiplicity of creative people living, working, and playing along this historic street. At this outdoor event, a throng of thousands sample delectable fare (emphasis on antojitos, Mexican street food like tacos, tamales, and tortas) from local restaurants, food trucks, and food tents, while listening to live music on three stages, and browsing through exhibits by so-called “Cherokee People” (the artists and entrepreneurs who live and/or work in the neighborhood).
