Got some good comments when I sold and signed a few copies of Beer, Brats, and Baseball: St. Louis Germans at the German Cultural Society’s Oktoberfest tonight. The real test comes tomorrow, of course, at the release-signing party from 2-5 p.m. at Gretchen’s Inn at Al Smith’s Feasting Fox Restaurant, 4200 S. Grand Blvd., St. Louis. What will you say about the book?
