With eight days to go until the release-signing party for Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans, I’m confident I’ll be even more dashing in my lederhosen as this German gent is. But there are problems to overcome.
Alas, the suspenders that came with the lederhosen were about seven inches too short. We didn’t have time to mail them back. So we took them to a seamstress on Hampton who will attach extenders. As I said, I’ll be ready when I’m at at the party, from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Sept 16, at Gretchen’s Inn at Al Smith’s Feasting Fox Restaurant, 4200 S. Grand Blvd. After all, I’m sure the old Germans had much harder difficulties to overcome when they came to St. Louis. You can read about it when you buy your own copy of Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans.
