The "tickled pickle," on offer at Byrd & Barrel

How great of a month was September? We got a huge new burlesque-themed place, Seven Zero Eight, down in Laclede's Landing. (Remember Laclede's Landing?) We got a toast shop. (Take that, San Francisco!) And, finally, we got the food item this city has long been waiting for: The Tickled Pickle, which is basically a deep-fried pickle stuffed with a hotdog. Thank you for that, Bob Brazell.

Below is our list of September's openings and closings. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments section. Anything good opening in October? Let us know about that too. And 'til then, we have two words for you: TICKLED PICKLE.
