mmmm...beer...er...malt liquor shots?

Anheuser-Busch, the largest U.S. brewer, may consider expanding beyond beer in the liquor industry if sales of wine and spirits continue to take market share...(Fark)

July is coming and besides the heat its time to get ready for Fair St. Louis and Live on the Levee! Although these events have been going on for years, this year might be a little different. I know I've really enjoyed the experience in the past, but for the Fourth is the best band we could get Hootie?

Are you ready for the coming traffic storm? The massive three-year, $535 million Missouri Department of Transportation project to rebuild a 12-mile stretch of I-64, locally known as Highway 40, from Spoede Road in St. Louis County to Sarah Street in the city of St. Louis, is scheduled to begin in early 2007. Recently a group led by Downtown St. Louis Partnership is recommending it is economically better to keep two lanes open rather than one lane on both the eastbound and westbound route. Ready or not the new I-64 is coming...

St. Louis does a lot of things right. Baseball, toasted ravioli, or pizza for instance. But anyone that has known me and been on a car trip from Missouri to Illinois will attest...I hate the Poplar Street Bridge (aka the Bernard F. Dickman Bridge).

Here is the main artery into the St. Louis downtown, combining several highways. Driving past the Arch and riverfront what do you see? A street. That is all it is. A run down street over the water. When this thing was built there was a chance to create a work of art, one that showed true achitecture yet allowed an optimal view of the Arch and downtown. Instead, we got the Poplar Street Bridge as it is today.

I always thought that the Jefferson Barracks Bridge should have been the one built downtown instead with its Arch like features.

See more about bridges in the St. Louis and upper Mississippi area.

Edward Van Dyk's father has no idea why his son would throw his two boys off a balcony and then jump off himself.

Neither do police.

Looks like things are heating up for the Cardinals, but I don't mean just on the field. Ozzie Smith and Tony La Russa continue their feud that started way back in 1996...

A little bit of the Caribbean could be coming to Franklin County after a decision by officials Tuesday night, but visitors wouldn't need bathing suits - just their birthday suits. (via Fark)

Minneapolis, Nashville, St. Louis, Seattle and Atlanta were rated as the cities with the most courteous drivers, who were less likely to change lanes without signaling or swear at other motorists in a survey conducted by Prince Market Research...remember the basic rules for driving in St. Louis!

When Brad Fratello and his partner first moved into their downtown loft, the vista from their picture windows featured abandoned, graffiti-scarred buildings.

Now, the sound of jackhammers rings out like a serenade as long-empty spaces are reborn as posh lofts and new neighbors walk streets that recently were desolate after nightfall... (More from USA Today)

Out with the old and in with the new, today is opening day for Busch Stadium III. See a time lapsed video of the construction leading to this momentous day of many firsts.
