So Long For Now, Doorman Dave

24 years ago Doorman Dave started at Carson's. A couple weeks ago, Dave worked his last shift at the door and moved that same weekend down to Texas. If you've ever been to Carson's you know who this man is. You probably showed him your id at the door then saw him singing an old country song from the back of the room later in the evening. For years, Dave's wife Mary was just as much of a fixture inside as Dave was outside. Mary passed away last year. Dave was enrolled in school before Mary died and recently finished his degree. He's going down to Texas to use that degree in some fancy Big Boy job.

Thanks for the memories, Dave. We'll miss you and hope to see you again soon.

FaithFest 2014 happens this Saturday

The annual Christian music festival put on by The Rock Church of Soulard is happening this Saturday in Soulard Market Park. FaithFest 2014: "Putting the 'Soul' back in SOULard" happens on Saturday August 16 in Soulard. The event goes from 9 am to 5 pm (or 7 pm) and features such musical acts as Mercy's Child, Kingdom Brothers, Friends with Jesus, East to West, Minimee, and the Rockin' REVs. This is the fifth year for the event.

Feel free to take a look at the website, but be warned it really doesn't have any more information than what I just told you. Also, iLoveSoulard.com is not responsible for your head exploding partially because of a poor use of apostrophes.

Tomorrow be on the lookout for loud Christian music, prayer-walkers and panhandlers taking advantage of people caught up in the Holy Spirit.

The Rock Church of Soulard has a webpage, a Twitter account and a Facebook page, but don't expect to find much more information.
