Jason Derulo at the Arch

Now that the Arch is finished all of the free summer concerts have moved back here from their temporary home in Forest Park. The big show this year was Jason Derulo.


Here he is singing his own name a few times.








While we could hear the music we didn't have a great view, so we used it as an opportunity to take a lot of Arch selfies.














There were fireworks at the end. Can't really ever have enough Arch fireworks, now can you?


















Later we went to a couple of bars and I was badly beaten at foosball by some random.

Fourth of July Fireworks at the Arch

The seemingly-forever renovation of the Arch was completed right around the 4th of July, so heading over there for some fireworks was a genius plan.


Trust is one of my favorite bars downtown. It's situated in an opulent 1896 bank building. To the out of town observer though it's probably easily overlooked, so they did a little sprucing up for the Fourth.




It was so hot that everyone was attempting to squish themselves into the arch's shadow.


We popped into the brand new, mercifully air conditioned, museum under the Arch to see what's new. I had hoped they would keep around one or two of the hideous mannequins from the old museum but no dice.








Now that's a lotta potties!






The next day the alley behind our apartment looked like China threw up.
