Spanish Lake- Now on Netflix

Controversial. Political. Racial.

  • Must see documentary about Spanish Lake, MO.

“Spanish Lake is a 2014 American documentary film directed by Phillip Andrew Morton and co-produced by Phillip Andrew Morton and Matt Jordan Smith. The film premiered theatrically in St. Louis, Missouri on June 13, 2014.[1] The documentary chronicles the area of Spanish Lake, Missouri and its transformation from a 1950s white suburb to a mostly black population through a process known as white flight. The themes of the film parallel America’s growing political divide, underlying racism, and rise of anti-government sentiment.”  From Wikipedia


 

Now keep in mind that a lot of Spanish Lake is still lovely! This film focuses on the problems with large apartment complexes and surrounding neighborhoods. I drive through Spanish Lake for two of my exciting listings: Harris Armstrong-design House on the River & Coal Bank Rd Estate w/ 13+ acres

Slide Piece Food Truck

YUM!

A couple invited me to their Mardi Gras celebration in Soulard yesterday and treated all their guests to Slide Piece which was parked in front of their house. Very yummy!  The brainchild of Tommy Lee. He is Katie Lee’s (Katie’s Pizza and Pasta fame) brother. Pictured below is his brother who worked the window. Find out more about Slider Piece and where to find the truck HERE.  I wish Clayton allowed food trucks!
