Dudes, I had such a great time at the old north house tour today (including a special appearance by Mike of Crown Candy, who I'm thinking was there for the first time I actually saw a city city when I was 5 - b/c I am a country girl --- which means I was progressive before everyone i.e. 10-20 years ago!) and I'm TOTALLY not sure if I should by on the north or the south side. I mean, old north was just so lovely and community-y. I had such a time chattin' with Peevers (you might know him as Phil Valko) and co. outside the urban studio/cafe, and the neighbors are so into it. I liked it.
I don't know why, but I don't get that vibe from Gravois Park/Dutchtown - where I was looking before. I don't know why. But I like that community stuff- especially if I'm going to be crazy rehabbing. Which i will be.
Just got back from the trailer trash party in Southtown. What a night! it was so fun.
