I'd like to see a free mass transit entertainment shuttle/trolley that runs a loop from the CWE, SLU bars, Washington Ave, Laclede's Landing, Soulard, and then back again.
St Louis has so many good bar & entertainment districts, yet they are separated by too much distance and blight. If you're local, you know how to get around, its no big deal. But if you're a visitor you're lucky to stumble across one, much less several. I propose entertainment district shuttles running on a constant loop that links up all of St Louis unique party areas. Each stop will also have a secured parking lot for wherever you start your adventure. What makes New Orleans so popular? It has a continual party corridor running from the French Quarter to the Garden District. Other than that its dirty and unsafe - but its internationally known. Once out of towners come to St Louis and start saying "I had a blast in St Louis" the buzz will spread. I understand this is a very shallow and low-tech idea, but every great city needs a party district that has critical mass for excitement - "the" only place to go. Ever been to Riverwalk in San Antonio? Its the log fume with chain restaurants and bars on each side. But its a central place, memorable, and therefore makes San Antonio cool in the eyes of visitors. Thanks for considering
