MX District in Downtown STL to Host Outdoor Dining Experience

Fridays are once again for (responsible) gathering in Downtown St. Louis! Al Fresco at the MX, an all-new outdoor dining experience, is coming to the MX District (6th St. between Locust and Washington). This new experience is led by MX developer Amos Harris and the National Blues Museum. Everyone is invited to purchase food and drinks (including alcoholic beverages!) from their favorite Downtown restaurant, sit outside for sunset dining, and listen to live music from the National Blues Museum played throughout the night.

The street will be shut down (no cars allowed) so you can get carryout from any area restaurant and then grab a seat at one of the socially-distanced tables set up throughout the outdoor area.
