Busting the headlines in St. Louis, from the city’s airport to downtown, The Argus got it!

The Editor takes a look at the headlines from major media sources in St. Louis.

As we go toward a new week in the great CITY, we thank the Man Above for giving us the strength to continue to do so. With that being said, enjoy your work week and be safe out there.

Here are some exciting headlines, that are busting the scene in metro St. Louis, including the busy mechanism of things going on at St. Louis-Lambert International district.

St. Louis Business Journal has a subscription system, so they will have a cow if you post their media. In regards, we still wanted to introduce you to their latest news.

Plan to lease 158 acres for $1.8B Boeing project advanced by St. Louis Board of Aldermen:

The 17-year lease, approved last month by the city’s Airport Commission, consists of a 48.3-acre parcel along Banshee Road referred to as the Northern Tract, former site of the McDonnell Douglas manufacturing facilities; and 109.5.acres known as Brownleigh that is bounded by Airport Road, Interstate 170 and James S. McDonnell Boulevard.

This will be a game changer for the city of St. Louis, that owns and operates its airport. I can’t wait to see the new jobs, homes and population rises due to this long term investment.

Next up, we have our hot boys of late summer/fall, strengtening their lead in the division and make new fans long the way. This story was popping on Twitter/St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Before I tell you about their the Missouri Tigers big win, and trust me, I was working hard trying to find the ESPN channel to watch it. Here is the big story:

Mizzou win brings cash cow for St. Louis businesses

Mizzou returned to the city for the first time in 13 years.

Surprisingly, 13 years, dang why did it take so long? The Rams were still here, so maybe that had something to do with it. Anyway, Channel 5 has the big news.

For the first time in 13 years, Mizzou has returned to the city, in what’s known as ‘Zou To the Lou’.

Tonight, thousands of Tiger fans were joined by hockey fans downtown as the Blues dropped the puck on the pre-season

Saturday thousands of Blues, Mizzou Tigers and Memphis Tigers cheered on their favorite teams.

The St. Louis Sports Commission says attendance for the game was 45,085. 

And Sugarfire Smoke House in downtown St. Louis says profits will be double this weekend.

“We’re going to go about 50% more [profit] than we would than on a normal weekend with nothing in town. Very easily,” Chef Birk said.

Chef Matthew Birkenmeier who goes by Chef Birk says it will take a team to serve these hungry fans. 

“We’re probably about 10 heavy [employees] right now,” Chef Birk said.

That’s 10 additional staff members to help out just for this weekend.

Sugarfire is serving up their BBQ at the Enterprise Center, the Dome and their restaurant on Washington Ave.

Chef Birk was up as early as 5 a.m. Saturday preparing for the extra foot traffic.

“On an average today 550 pounds of brisket, 600 pounds of pork and 150 racks of ribs. At least 200-300 pounds of turkey,” Chef Birk said.

Sugarfire is just one of the businesses that’s happy to see the Tigers are back. 

“We’ll serve any tiger no matter what your stripes are,” Chef Birk said.

According to the Dome’s website, nearly 67,000 football fans can fit inside.

One hour before the ‘Zou to The Lou game’ Ticketmaster showed tickets as low as $20, minutes before the game they had gone up to $30.

Oh, and for Luther Burden III and Cody Schrader, too.

Last, back to our very busy airport scene:

Lambert will have nonstop service to Montreal starting May 2, 2024, Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge confirmed Friday in an email to the Business Journal.
