This Saturday, the 19th, bring two great events to the Island. Hammerstone's is having their annual car show in front of their establishment. Expect cars, food, music and awesome people watching of course.
The Price's Annual Crawfish Boil is also on Saturday from 3p-Midnight. It's held on that short block of 10th between Allen and Geyer. Expect great food, live music and plenty of cold beverages. It's $25 All-You-Can-Consume and is benefits the Cancer Support Center of St. Louis. Bring your own mug. This is one of my favorite annual events in Soulard. Call 314-229-0155 or 314-853-4855 for more information.
The Blues Cruise is also the weekend. Fittingly, St. Louis' Blues Week Festival kicks off this this event on the Island. 9 venues will be playing host to bands this year and a $10 wristband gets you into all of them. Also, be aware if you don't plan on attending the Cruise, that these 9 venues will have covers. A shuttle will be running between the 9 venues for those with wristbands.
