Where’s your wallet? Your car keys? Your appetite for the best food and drink around!!! It’s just SIX (Count ’em, six.) days until the launch party for The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and The Hard Hats Who Built The Gateway Arch, 2nd Edition. Keep lollygagging like this, and you won’t be ready to go on Sunday afternoon, June 24. You KNOW it’s from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. that day at Steven Fitzpatrick Smith’s fantastic Royale, at 3132 S. Kingshighway Blvd., JUST south of Arsenal Street.
What are you waiting for?
With everything going on at that great St. Louis icon, the great Gateway Arch, you know you want to read a great book about it, don’t you? The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and The Hard Hats Who Built The Gateway Arch, 2nd Edition is it! It’s even better than the first edition, which made the Post-Dispatch list of the 50 best books of 2014. Besides all the great history and stuff from the first edition, you’ll read about the $380 million redo of the Arch grounds and museum, what’s up with those stains on the Arch, the new name for the park and so much more. You’ll peruse more than 60 new pictures.
You can get your own copy, and my autograph on it, at the event, and participate in a fantastic trivia contest. Did I mention the great food and drink? WOW!
But you read all that, and you’re not getting ready.
YIKES! Time to start. There’s just SIX DAYS TO GO!
