There will be a variety of beer and wine but no Light/Princess of Beer because it is just wrong.
Ignore anyone crying on the curb or wearing only one shoe.
If you would like to take home one or more of the morbidly obese feral cats, please do. They make wonderful door stop conversation pieces. Three make for an excellent art installation.
Do not look into a Soulard raccoon’s eyes. It will enchant you and take your money, beer/wine, Gus’s pretzel brat. It’s like glamouring by Vampire Bill. If you come upon a bear in Soulard, it is actually a raccoon. Soulard Raccoon Bears are mostly on Shenandoah and its alley. If you avoid that, you should be OK.
Pony rides are a nickel. We do not make change.
To Go food containers are not permitted. Leftover food goes to homeless shelter.
We provide Charmin in our bathrooms because we respect our guests.
Cell phones often do not work in Soulard on Grand Parade Day. We have a landline.
