STL250 Cakeway to the West

The City of St. Louis turns 250 years old in 2014. To celebrate, is placing 250 birthday cakes throughout the City at select locations. These locations fall into 5 distinct categories: landmark sites, heritage & culture, the great outdoors, local favorites and innovation.

One of these great landmarks is the former site of the St. Louis Arena (aka The Checkerdome, aka “The Barn”). Cortona at Forest Park has the privilege of being located next to the old Arena site, and even boasts a large oval-shaped park where the Arena once stood. We would be honored to celebrate our city’s birthday all year long by hosting one of these exclusive cakes.
