The Crestwood Bowl's iconic sign will shine anew on Watson Road, thanks to a Route 66 preservation grant. See the re-lighting on Oct. 20.
The owners of Crestwood Court believe an entertainment-focused development is the key for reviving the nearly vacant mall space along Watson Road. The District at Crestwood would boast a movie theater, comedy club, live entertainment restaurant, and a bowling alley that's "a little more modern" than nearby options. Crestwood Bowl, however, is embraces its Route 66 nostalgia. The alley has been a fixture for Crestwood families since the late 1950's, and customers say it's a favorite because of how little time has changed it. Its original sign is even designated as a county landmark by the Historic Buildings Commission of St. Louis County. But its lights fizzled out a few years ago. Route 66 Corridor Preservation Program recently awarded …

My top picks:

Enjoy the Christmas season now, today, this week and the next, says this blogger, and don't 'work yourself to the bone' for just one big day.
As the song says, it's the most wonderful time of the year--the time that Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. One great thing about the holidays is that it gets everybody nostalgic. In days gone by, dinner with the family was delicious at Heritage House, at the corner of Watson and Lindbergh. There was the big blow-up Santa on top of Dillard's, and the old Flaming Pit had the best holiday dining experience with Christmas trees and lights. People lined up to buy donuts with red and green sprinkles at Danny Donut, which was near Crestwood Bowl; and of course children hoped for gift certificates in their stockings from the miniature golf course across the street. Longtime residents may still call the shopping plaza with Borders …
