It has been almost three years since we last Flooded the venerable Saint Louis Art Museum. In that short time, they have added an entire new wing, a parking garage, and an outdoor sculpture garden. Also, on this Friday evening, the Museum will be screening JAWS for its Art Hill Film Series, hosting a bevy of delicious food truck fare, and more. slam009

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!

New kid on the block, St. Louis Swap Meet (at the Lemp Brewery) had more vendors sign up for their launch event, than those on a typical Saturday at the busy Soulard Farmers Market. This weekly market features an incredibly wide range of products, from kettle corn to home goods, and includes food trucks and music performances.

Mini-Flood 32: Castlewood State Park

Castlewood State Park is a hiking and biking destination not far from downtown St. Louis. Long ago, the area that is now the park was used as a bucolic retreat from life in the city. Visitors reveled here well into the 20th century, when speakeasies and dinner clubs sprouted along the bluffs of Castlewood. These, of course, are now long gone, but the immense, natural beauty that originally lured visitors remains steadfast.

Since 1860, the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Soulard has been a bastion of St. Louis’ business and manufacturing clout. Having previously earned the nickname of “World’s Largest Brewer” the local business was acquired by Belgian-Brazilian giant, InBev, in an aggressive acquisition completed in 2008. Even so, the Brewery continues to be a favorite attraction for residents and visitors alike (an attachment solidified by generations of the Busch family, passionate beer barons and city boosters).
