A Grove Without Trees

The Grove 2015-02-21 1

Just outside of Forest Park on Manchester Avenue, the sign at the western end of The Grove district. Urban Chestnut brewery and restaurant is at bottom center. They make brew that tastes like an herb garden. Some people like that. There is no grove, as in grove of trees. The main street crossing Manchester is Tower Grove Avenue so the name is more of a marketing thing. Some people even call that intersection The Mangrove - Manchester and Tower Grove Avenues - get it? Ha. 

The most famous establishment at that intersection is Sweetie Pie's southern/soul food restaurant. The Oprah Network even has a reality TV show about it. New episodes start today!

This kind of signs you find only in N America. Nice one.

A brew that tastes like a herb garden.. hmmm! I'm not even a beer drinker but that somehow doesn't sound like a good thing :)

That's quite a standout sign!

My mom's eldest sister lived in that area for as long as I can remember. She and her husband were rich--I never understood why they didn't move. He wanted to, she didn't.
