All members, friends, and supporters of Old North St. Louis Restoration Group are invited to join us on Monday, January 31st at 6 p.m. for ONSLRG’s Annual Meeting and Pot-Luck Supper. One of the great community events of the year, the gathering provides an opportunity for residents and friends to come together on a cold winter evening to celebrate the warmth of the community and publicly recognize all of those who helped make the previous year so successful.
Over the past few years we’ve moved this event around to different locations in the neighborhood. This year, we’ll be gathering at the old Sobel’s Dept. Store building at 2624 N. 14th Street, at the center of what had been the 14th Street Mall, but now at the intersection of the re-opened N. 14th Street and Montgomery. If you haven’t taken a look at Crown Square since the redevelopment finished and the street opened, this is a great chance to get inside one of the historically rehabbed buildings at this award-winning development.
As noted on the flyer, we invite all guests to bring a dish to share and have provided some suggested guidelines for the type of dish to bring (to avoid 100 pots of spaghetti), but we encourage you to bring whatever you’d like to share or to join us even if you won’t be able to bring something.
And, speaking of food, this year’s event will feature something new. In the late ’90s ONSLRG produced a cookbook, “Out of Old North Saint Louis Kitchens,” to collect and put the spotlight on the many great recipes created or lovingly used by Old North residents, including many reflecting the diverse cultures of the community’s population. The cookbook has been out of print now for several years, but we were approached recently about an opportunity to use that old cookbook as a jumping off point for a new initiative that celebrates both food and community…
DISCOVER: TEAM COOKBOOK
This creative team consists of an Artist/Cultural Activist, a Museum Educator, an MSW and an Art Administrator. They love to cook, they love to eat, love to talk about food… food history, celebrations… the way food can bring people together (or drive them apart).
TEAM COOKBOOK will be collecting recipes, stories and photos from residents and providing workshops and activities inspired by food in Old North St. Louis.
You can meet the TEAM and learn more about how to get involved in the project at the Annual Meeting and Potluck on Monday, January 31.
Bring your favorite recipe, your camera and most importantly your appetite!
Give us a call at 314-241-5031 if you have any questions. As always, we invite you to help us spread the word and invite all of your neighbors to come on out for this wonderful community event.
