Saturday-morning garage-sale hunting is always great fun. Saturday-morning garage-sale hunting followed by a pig roast is awesome.
On Saturday, May 25, Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust Street; 314-241-2337) will host its annual Pork Shop: A Dowtown BBQ and Garage Sale. Also, there will be beer. A roast pig, beer and a multitude of obsolete VHS tapes and grandma's costume jewelry.
The event starts with the garage sale at 9 a.m. (is that too early for a morning beer?), and live music begins at 11 a.m. Schlafly has recruited Rough Shop, Letter to Memphis and the Dock Ellis Band to to liven up the Pork Shop with Americana, indie-folk and honky-tonk tunes (respectively).
If you've got crap you've been wanting to get rid of, but you worry no one will come to your little garage sale, you can be a part of this extravaganza! Schalfly is accepting vendor applications through May 20 on its website.
Schlafly encourages folks to barter, haggle and do something good for charity by donating anything that doesn't sell to Goodwill. A portion of the proceeds from food and drink sales will also be donated to Goodwill.
Multiple whole hogs will be sacrificed around lunchtime, and the shopping and revelry will continue until 5 p.m. Of course, if you just can't get enough of Schlafly, the Tap Room will be open until 1 a.m. Just don't try to haggle for beer.
