St. Louis Game Time 2011 Meet and Drink Wednesday: East Of The River Edition


I loved this photo so much that I HAD to be sure it was used again.

St. Louis Game Time proudly presents . . . 2011 Game Time Meet and Drink tour stop NUMBER TWO . . . coming Wednesday, May 18th to . . . THE ALTON SPORTS TAP IN BEAUTIFUL (?!) ALTON, ILLINOIS!

Yes, we had such a good time at the first Meet and Drink that we decided to go for another round, both literally and figuratively. You're all invited. We're all invited. And it's sure to be a good time.

If you aren't familiar with where the Alton Sports Tap is, well, here's a Google Map of where it is. Basically, it's right off Homer Adams Parkway, and for you folks from the Missouri side of the river, it's about five minutes from the Clark Bridge.

I'll be honest: I've lived 30 miles away from the Alton Sports Tap pretty much my whole life, and I've never been there, so I don't even know what to expect from the place. But it's a sports bar, so there's that. And it has the seal of approval from our very own Poor College Student, who of all people is from a closer proximity than ANYONE else at St. Louis Game Time. And Tim has never swayed me wrong before.

The game of the night will be Game Two between the San Jose Sharks and the Vancouver Canucks, being played in the jewel of Canada's beautiful southwest coast (yes, I just said that out loud, SHUT UP).

I have a feeling we will do at least one more of these Meet and Drinks, so if you can't make it to this one, you still may be in luck!

So join us, won't you? Food, beer, hockey, people, good times. Looking forward to seeing some of you there!
