The invitation we received says:
For more than 30 years, Balaban’s was THE place to be on Friday nights. Shoulder to shoulder and four deep at the bar, those of us who came of age in the 70’s, 80’s, and even the the 90’s called Balaban’s the meeting spot in all of St. Louis. Balaban’s closed in January, 2008. Many of us never got to say goodbye or celebrate the many memories we have of those glory days of our youth.
FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY, FRIDAY, JUNE 27, Balaban’s will reopen with original staff, bartenders, music and the men and women you met on nights you fondly remember.
DETAILS: $250 per person, drinks and hors d’oeuvres, 6 9 pm. Checks payable to "Slay for Mayor Committee." Call Randalynn to RSVP, 314 361-7117, ext. 134.
