Soulard Holiday Parlour Tour

There are now roughly two dozen TV shows about buying homes, rehabbing them and then decorating them (often with shiplap, whatever that is). It puts a lot of pressure on those of us who can't really get into decorating for the holidays, even if we sometimes long for boughs of holly. There's a way to scratch that particular itch with only a minimal effort — the Soulard Holiday Parlour Tour. Generous and house-proud residents of the historic neighborhood welcome the curious to take a guided tour of some of their finest front rooms from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday (December 2 and 3). The tour starts at Gene Slay's Girls & Boys Club (2524 South Eleventh Street;, where there will be a holiday bazaar, plus food and music. From there you'll board a heated shuttle bus that will take you and your guide to the participating homes, where you'll meet homeowners and learn about what it's like to restore a home without a camera crew filming everything. Tickets are $25 to $30.
