Join Us for Holiday Fun In The Loop!

If there’s one thing St. Louis knows, it’s how to get in the spirit of the holiday season. There’s no shortage of festive fun to be had this year, especially on the Delmar Loop – and it all starts this weekend! Check out all the holiday events you can hit on one of the top 10 streets in America this year!

Small Business Saturday: November 24

Skip the Black Friday crowds and crush, rest your turkey-filled tummies and save your shopping for Small Business Saturday on The Loop this year! Support the amazing small businesses along Delmar and you’ll receive poker chips with your purchases that can be redeemed for a FREE Tito’s cocktail at the best restaurant in St. Louis – The Moonrise’s Eclipse! Poker chips are valid only on Small Business Saturday, so plan to make a festive day of it and wrap your shopping up with an out-of-this-world drink beneath the moon.

Get more details and RSVP to Small Business Saturday on Facebook!
