While many tend to celebrate the climax of their over-the-hill journeys with obligatory black balloons, Grim Rreaper cake toppers, death-themed gag gifts and a defeated attitude to match, Blueberry Hill (6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City) has no intention of approaching its demise anytime soon. In fact, the St. Louis landmark invites you and everyone you love to grab your party hats and head to the Loop on September 8 for Blueberry Hill’s 40th Anniversary Bash, where growing up is not an option. The celebration kicks off inside Blueberry Hill at 8 p.m., and event activities include both a party-hat and costume contest, a screening of footage from the restaurant's opening in 1972, karaoke in the Duck Room, a whole evening of prize and deal giveaways courtesy of the "Wheel of Prizes" and so much more. For all of the details on Blueberry Hill’s 40th anniversary bash, call 314-727-4444 or visit www.blueberryhill.com.
