Sunset Hills Gets a Motorcycle-Themed Eatery; Hilarious Local Advertising Legend Dies
Advertising pitchman and business owner Steve Mizerany of New Deal, died Friday.
A new business that caught our eye is Mile 277 Tap & Grill in the Holiday Inn Viking, where the old Generations Lounge used to be. According to bar manager Nate Kirt “it’s a motorcycle themed place, but not a biker bar.”
They just opened April 3 and have live music every day starting at 8 p.m. with music on Sunday afternoons starting at 2:30 p.m. Amanda Moehle and Rachel West were the greeters the day we went and they showed off the many decorations made from motorcycle parts, including the unique motorcycle-themed faucets in the restrooms. . .
One of the most familiar people in the world of local advertising and business ownership passed away this week, but did you know he was from the Crestwood area? Steve Mizerany’s kids went to Lindbergh and he lived for a time in the Lindbergh School District. His son Vincent Mizerany said he had pneumonia. “My brother and sisters and I were all there when he died,” he said.
Mizerany was famous for his wild commercials touting “the Decent Boys” and for roller skating through his appliance showroom, as well as shouting out “4719 Gravois. . .next to the Bevo Mill. . .Don’t be confused. . .All roads lead to the New Deal!”
Steve Mizerany was 87 years old, just one month shy of his 88th birthday. He is survived by his children Steven, Cathy, and Vince Mizerany, Stephanie Dorris, and Veronica Miller. Vince Mizerany called his father “a St. Louis legend who entertained and made people laugh” with all his “silly ways.” The Mizerany family all went to Growler’s Pub in Sunset Hills after the funeral. . .
