Relieve imposed economic stress. Twenty years ago about now City Hall sold out Kiel Opera House to protect the Fox and also began selling out the MUNY.. to protect the Fox, and now Chafeitz. This has caused what has grown to a $500 million dollar annual loss to St. Louis in entertainment-driven revenue. A 7 weeks MUNY draws 400,000 a 13 weeks MUNY with at least concerts thru Sept. draws 900,000. Dogtown is hurt severely by this restraint of trade. No one has dinner in Dogtown when they can bring food to free Shakespeare or Twilight Tuesdays. All the festivals in the Park that squeeze MUNY sell their own food. Kansas City opens Starlight in May and didn't close til October 8th. They do travel and show packages. Your aldermen have caved to the 'powers', all of them. Gonna get worse. Get smart and do something. Restraint of trade violates federal law.
DogTown. I was born here in Dogtown and its the perfect place to live. I have so many friends here in Dogtown that agree with me. But the worst thing about dogtown is that where ever me and my friends hang they tear down that place and we never get to see it again. They will always be in my memory. There putting new places in that are somewhat cool that will make more memorys but the old dogtown will never actually leave in my heart.
South of Forest Park, this neighborhood's Irish history bubbles up during its annual St. Patrick's Day Parade..
Bounded by Oakland, Hampton, Manchester and the city limits, Dogtown is really a combination of several distinct neighborhoods: Franz Park, Hi-Pointe, Clayton/Tamm and Cheltenham, depending on who you ask. Although Dogtown's population is fairly diverse, the Irish are still prevalent, especially around March 17, when Tamm Avenue hosts a parade that seems to get bigger every year. As expected, you can find a good pint around here, but you can also do a little shopping, see an arty movie and get some good Mexican food.
