Strange Saga of Skybox Ends

One of the weirdest stories that Gut Check has followed over the past few years has apparently reached its end, reports the St. Louis Business Journal: Skybox, the sports bar and restaurant that Nelly, Marshall Faulk, Darius Miles and Larry Hughes opened at 800 North Third Street, will become the Vatterott College Ex'treme [sic] Institute, a music-recording school.

Skybox opened in early 2008. In 2009, the restaurant changed its name to The Levee, though only briefly. Around the same time, something called King Louie's Courtyard Bar & Pizzeria also opened -- and then closed. There might have also been something called North 40 there?

(And, of course, before Nelly et. al. took over the address, it was home to Planet Hollywood.)
