Bissell Mansion Restaurant and Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre Presents

Flaming Saddles at Bissell Mansion
Through April 2014
RThe year is 1899. Gold is discovered in the city of Tombstone, Arizona. Overnight, this savage no man's land mushrooms into a thriving metropolis where the latest Paris fashions can be bought from the back of wagons residents who stray too far outside the town limits can get scalped in style.

It's not long before thieves and cutthroats band together in Tombstone to form the "Cowpokes Gang." Brothers to the death, the only law and order they acknowledge is that of their matriarchal leader, Doc Holly Day. The Gunfights are a daily occurrence in Tombstone, and the murder rate rivals that of today's big cities.

The heroine of our play, cabaret star Lily Von Stoop, telegrams famous lawman, Wyatt Burp for help, but somebody bumps off Burp. Her last hope is Major John Payne, riding with the calvary into Tombstone on a "Flaming Saddle," as only a Major Payne can.

So come to the Bissell Mansion, y'all. Whether you're a member of the Cowpokes Gang, a singing Saloon Girl, faithful Indian companion, corrupt politician, or just another gold prospector, you'll find a wealth of laughs. As the leader of the Cowpokes Gang, Doc Holly Day says, "It's only funny 'til someone dies, then it's hysterical."

This participatory 4-act comedy murder mystery is set in the old west and presented with a 4-course meal to DIE for! Make your reservations now. Call the Bissell Mansion at 314-533-9830 or 1-800-690-9838. It would be a CRIME to miss out on this much FUN!

Ballpark Village Debuts Unique Dining Experience Featuring American, Japanese and Mexican Cuisines
ST. LOUIS, MO, (, March 28, 2014 - Just in time for the start of the 2014 baseball season, the new Budweiser Brew House has opened its doors at Ballpark Village for an unparalleled beer and dining experience for baseball fans and visitors in St. Louis.

The destination includes an outdoor beer garden, an interior inspired by Anheuser-Busch and Budweiser's rich heritage and commitment to quality, and a rooftop deck that puts St. Louis Cardinals fans within reach of baseball heaven.

From wings and lobster tacos to St. Louis-style ribs, fresh salads and more, each Budweiser Brew House menu item was created by a chef with a specific beer pairing in mind. Guests can add a suggested beer to their entrée or select one of their favorites for a unique dining experience.

The Budweiser Brew House offers 239 beer taps, from Budweiser-proudly brewed in St. Louis since 1876-to new. A unique, self-serve 21-foot tap wall featuring a variety of brews allows guests to pour and explore new beers or old favorites. With the help of an in-house beer ambassador, adults 21 and older can purchase a Budweiser Brew House card in the dollar amount of their choice, swipe the card at the tap wall, and watch as their chosen tap dispenses a perfectly chilled beer.

In conjunction with the Ballpark Village Grand Opening, the official opening of the Budweiser Brew House will take place the evening of Saturday, March 29, and will culminate with an exclusive private concert by country music star Joe Nichols. On Monday, March 31, as the St. Louis Cardinals take on the Reds in Cincinnati, the Budweiser Brew House will have 52 high-definition televisions tuned to the game for an Opening Day Watch Party starting at 2 p.m.

Beginning today, fans 21 and older can win VIP access to the Joe Nichols concert on Saturday, March 29, as well as tickets to the St. Louis Cardinals home opener on Monday, April 7, via the Budweiser Facebook page. For more information, visit

"The Budweiser Brew House at Ballpark Village is a symbol of Anheuser-Busch's commitment and continued investment in our community," said Julia Mize, Vice President, Experiential Marketing, Anheuser-Busch. "Whether the Cardinals are at home or away, fans can enjoy great food and some of the best beers in brand-new ways through one-of-a-kind offerings only the Budweiser Brew House can deliver."
