St. Louis Public Radio fans love their Cardinals. Last Thursday, 150 endured the drizzle to watch the Cardinals take on the Brewers on the Public Media Common’s two-story outdoor screen at Who’s on Deck? What’s on Draft? sponsored by Carol House Furniture.
Folks received a free hotdog from St. Louis favorite Classic Red Hots and sampled local craft beer from 2nd Shift brewing, 4 Hands Brewing Co., Earthbound Beer, Urban Chestnut, Perennial Artisan Ales, and Old Bakery Beer.
During the game, St. Louis Public Radio staffers tested their new t-shirt slingshot. Nine people caught some station swag -- a long-sleeved t-shirt, typically only available to members.
Fans were able to enjoy the game on two screens after the sun went down. The Public Media Commons showed the Cardinals on a second screen projected on the side of Nine Network’s building.
At the end of the game, Cardinal fans left happy, having enjoyed some of the most beloved St. Louis traditions: beer and baseball.
The Cardinals may have lost, but the fans definitely won! “People were comparing their favorite beers and having a good time. Even though it was a rough night for the Cardinals, people seemed to really enjoy the experience,” said Ben Chambers, who organized the event (and is a big Cardinals fan).
