How could they sell out? This was the hangout for many Blues players after practice. It should be on the National Historic Register. Anyhoo, I want that sign. I need that sign. Beings I'm stuck in Kali-fornya and it might disappear before I get back there to
Billy Madison on the STLToday Blues forum said he went by the old Blues practice rink Winterland in Bridgeton today and the Penalty Box bar out front is now some sort of appliance store. Definitely gone (although the sign for the plaza still has "Penalty Box" at the top of it). They're ripping down all of our old stomping grounds so we have a fire mission.
You'll prolly need a lift of some sort or some tall Lurch type to reach the sign. Take some tools but don't bust the sign up please. If you gotta use a welder or blow it in place I don't want it. Also consider ramming the pole and knocking it over and taking the whole freakin thing to work on back in your hide out of sight of the coppers.
It's on the Rock Road, north side just west of Fee Fee Rd. Lat/Long 38.741549, -90.405516
Holy shit, just went street view on Google maps and it ain't even the original sign, just some generic sign there now.
The ole place, sigh.
