Brew in the Lou, Neighborhood Watch Class, Fox Park Block Party--All Tonight

Three great events happening in or around Soulard tonight. Take your pick of one or hit up more than one.


  • Brew in the Lou-- Evan Benn, the highly-acclaimed Beer Guy at the Post-Dispatch and writer of the Hip Hops feature on Stltoday, wrote a book about beer in St. Louis. Being that he is one of the Top 10 "Tweeps" in St. Louis, it's only fitting that they are having a "Tweetup" to celebrate. It goes from 6p-10p at iTap.  $1 beers off all Missouri Drafts are available as part of the event.  Also, it's Wednesday, so, 8p-10p, iTap has their Kill The Keg promotion. The U.S. Soccer Gold Cup Semifinal game will also be showing at 6pm.
  • Neighborhood Watch Class--The Island is ramping up their Neigborhood Watch activities and here's your chance to be a part of it.  6:30-8:30 p at Lift for Life Academy.  It's the old bank turned into a school on the other side of Broadway if you don't know where it is.  Here's an article on the event from Your Local Messenger
  • Fox Park Block Party--This event may not be on the Island, but it is really close and looks like a fun event.  Also, it's sponsored in part by a local church, August Gate. Event goes 5-7:30p tonight at Fox Park.  Food, drinks, shaved ice, prizes are advertised.  Bring a lawn chair because St. Louis rapper, Thi'sl will be performing. Located at the corner of Victor and California.
