Rally this Wednesday Evening to SAVE OUR SAUCER!

Save Our Saucer lime

Join us this Wednesday, July 6th at 6:00 pm at the southeast corner of Grand and Forest Park Boulevards to show your love for the Flying Saucer (formerly Del Taco). We will be gathering to celebrate this unique piece of googie architecture that is currently threatened with demolition.

Please bring your friends, kids, parents and anyone who thinks that this unique vestige of space-age architecture should not be demolished to make way for a boring new chain restaurant box. We need to show the St. Louis Board of Aldermen, Mayor Slay and the developer, Rick Yackey, that St. Louis LOVES this building! The building is part of the Council Plaza National Register Historic District, and holds many possibilities for remodeling or adaptation for a new tenant (or tenants), while still retaining it's unmistakable style.

Please visit our Facebook event page and let us know if you can attend and please share the event invitation with all your friends. The rally will go from 6:00 to 8:00, so if you can't make it there at 6:00, please come later. At 7:00 there will be some brief statements about the building and our cause to save it. A limited number of STL Style t-shirts featuring the awesome artwork above by Kara Clark Holland will be available at the rally.
