Baseball’s over! Just kidding. It’s a joke. It’s not a good one, but we had you for a bit. No, downtown will still be soaked with Cardinals spirit and Busch beer until the boys of summer have gone home. There’s not a game every night, so what are you going to do? Watch TV, who has the time? St. Louis comedy is what you need and we have lots of it this week, from open mics to huge independent shows to something somewhere between that.
Leave your house, take in the fresh air, pull up a chair, grab a beer, and listen to comedians. It’s that easy!
