MARCH 26 BIRTHDAYS:
1911, Tennessee Williams; 1940, Nancy Pelosi; 1941, Bob and Barclay Pleger; 1944, Diana Ross; 1973, Marshall Faulk.
MEMORIES:
Many can recall the catchline “White on the Bottle, Pink on the Cheeks!” It was used in all marketing of yesteryear’s Pevely Dairy. Now the last vestige of the company will vanish when the dairy’s long dormant building on the southwest corner of Grand at Chouteau will vanish to become part of SLU’s portfolio. Founded by the Kerckhoff family in 1887, the dairy’s mascot was Pinkie Pevely and it was touted all over the old structure and in the media. Bandleader Russ David presented his “Pevely Playhouse Party” from there and was aired on Channel 5. Pevely was but one of the many dairy companies that competed in our town that included Meadow Gold, St. Louis Dairy, Quality Dairy, Esquire, Reed’s, Velvet Freeze and Borden’s.

    And Pevely didn’t charge $4.50 for a small cup of ice cream. Unbelievable how much vendors can charge today.

    Was that a Pevely outlet on the other side of the then-Famous Barr lot in Clayton? The place that used to use colored lights on their outdoor water fountain. A lot of changes are positive, but not all.

  • Eagle says:

    Jerry’s post of October 10th, 2009, confirms that Pevely was the ice cream vendor across from Famous. By the way, Famous’s use of masonry glass block in its architecture was indicative of period construction. Good stuff.

  • Eagle says:

    eagle i told you nobody wants to hear your opinion bitch, now get off me site, des come sado

  • Joe Hanon says:

    The above post is not Eagle’s but Fake Eagle — I’m assuming ?

  • Joe Hanon says:

    And now that this blog demands email addresses
    the identity of any fake post can be revealed !

  • Eagle says:

    OMG! what will you old queens do now. Leave me alone Joe, or I’ll tell my mommy

  • TOWNCAR says:

    The Pevely site across from Famous was known as the “Pevely Fountain”…and on hot summer nights kids would play in the fountain waters…and the surprising fact is that it must have been well waterproofed as the electricity to the floodlights was 120V…one zap and you’re dead…Now those and pool lights run on 6-12Vold LV/DC…harmless.

    It was a fun place, and the deconstructed fountain sat in “Poppy” Kerckhoff’s basement at 4 Huntleigh Woods for about 20 years, and after that it seems to have vaporized, or maybe one of the sons-in-law sold it for wallet money.

    The Clayton Inn pool had one fatality in their pool for that reason…the light under the diving board was used as a grab spot and one too many…zap. It was retrofitted the next day.

    This bit of background trivia brought to you by a long memory.

  • TOWNCAR says:

    Yes, here is a fake Eagle…and those with a bit of computerese can figure out how to do it.

    I’m wondering now if the despised Retired1 was another ghost that was made to divide and conquer with bias and racism. Could be the reason for the different color commentors as site identifiers.

  • TOWNCAR says:

    It should read “there is a fake Eagle” not “here” moving right along…

  • Eagle says:

    Good point, Joe. So, Jerry, why don’t you post the information on this childish idiot while you still have a readership? I can only assume he’s someone who hates you.

  • Eagle says:

    i LOVE Berger, he is a cool guy, you idiots are a bunch of liberal babies……….plus it keeps up viewership numbers up

  • Joe Hanon says:

    Yes Towncar — I was a partner along with two others who bought the Clayton Inn in 1989, and I sold my 50% ownership, in 2010, to my partner’s two sons.
    The death you mention indeed happened the way you describe.
    .

  • Joe Hanon says:

    When the hotel was purchased in 1989 it was a Radisson;
    when I sold my partnership is was a Crown-Plaza of Clayton.

  • Eagle says:

    It was a shady deal Joe, and you know it bitch

  • Joe Hanon says:

    Slurs from non-entities should not be allowed on this site, Jerry !

  • Eagle says:

    I think there may be two trollers involved. Mickey is vile slime, but he writes in a way that suggests he is an adult, albeit at a low level of moral and intellectual functioning. This other person writes in a childish manner, ignorant and stupid, as well as vile. Perhaps this mental and moral dwarf is Mickey’s son, demonstrating that the rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the poisoned tree.

  • Eagle says:

    One shouldn’t speak about someone’s writing style, when after reading your post, you sir (big queen) should take English 101
    People of the younger generation follow their own rules, we do what we want when we want to whom we want…….so go get on your knees, and genuflect and blow the next guy who comes into your booth @ the troll adult bookstore you daft twit. LOL

  • TOWNCAR says:

    The question is that are [WE] going to have to wade thru the trash in order to continue the thread…? I don’t think the majority will want to. Most will read a few words and then escape.

    There is an answer, I just don’t have it at my disposal, although DISPOSAL is the right word here.

    As to Joe Hanon, I didn’t know of your stake in the Radisson/Crowne Plaza…I just go back to Bernard McMahon that built the original and broke the 3 story maximum for Clayton buildings, and it became quite the hot spot…my years with Procter & Gamble had an office around the corner, and we had many a meeting there…however this was 1967-72 for me, as I refused to move to Newark, NJ and with my 3rd refusal, I was given a generous severance package.

    Although I would see you, Joe at your restaurant in the Motel at Dorsett & 270, you obviously were an astute businessman and for that you deserve my respect. I am supposing you are enjoying retirement, or at least trying to.

    I am busier, not always willingly, than I was when working. Life just seems to never follow a straight line. Cheers.

  • Jean valjean says:

    Bob Plager was born March 11, 1943. Anyone with any knowledge of the Blues knows Bob and Barclay were not twins. Once again, Jerry’s sports informer must be Milo Yiannopoulos crossed with Rex Reed by way of Steven Cojocaru and Richard Simmons.

  • JAlexander says:

    I remember Pevely Playhouse as a RADIO program.

  • Eagle says:

    Seems I struck a nerve in the gutless child who hides dares hide behind my byline (see post, yesterday at 6:56). Unlike the real Eagle–me–he lacks intelligence and self respect, mistaking his sexual fantasies for clever exposition. What a sad case you are, my young friend. Judging by the way you stomp around Jerry’s site insulting your betters, your future is bleak indeed. You and Mickey should leave us and go back to your fellow fools on the extremist sites. Or are they too mentally swift for you as well?

  • KITTY says:

    It’s a shame Tennessee Williams isn’t around today. He would have a field day taking on the pitifully ugly Chelsea and her evil mother and her promiscuous Mac Daddy father. Make Chelsea the main character in Dog On A Hot Tin Roof. Place Hilldabeest in the “Tarantula Arms Hotel,where I take all my victims! (Blanch Dubois) And for Slick Willie, he becomes a law partner with Anthony Weiner of the firm Willie Waggers, Grope & Rape, P.C. That would be Tennessee’s greatest work!

  • Eagle says:

    fuck you BALD eagle, why don’t you & TOWcar take an enema, i know how much you like things rectally
    You’ll never be rid of me, i rule dis bitch ! besides i bring more hits to bergers site, you idiots think you make or break his site, what a laugh ……..LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!! see ya soon boy’s (boigiurls)

  • KITTY says:

    Eagle and Towncar, want to meet at Forest Park at sunset tonight? I’ll meet you at our usual spot, restrooms near soccer field. No lube required.

  • KITTY says:

    It appears the most putrid of all, Retired1, has crawled out of the sewer once again and is posting his vile filth in my and others’ names. I just wish the fat pig would crawl back in the sewer and DIE!

  • TOWNCAR says:

    …and just when victory was near, the swords were sheathed and the cause died.

    Back to square 1…wait and watch. I do believe that “Onion” was the dreaded Retired, but with the current blasphemy, who can be sure of anything…?

  • KITTY says:

    word on the street, the poster is either Mickey or Retired1. we’ll have to wait and see, i hear it might also be Towncar

  • Eagle says:

    If the above is the real Kitty: I asked Jerry in a post to provide us all with the email address of the guy who is trying to destroy Bergersbeat. We didn’t sign any kind of agreement and Jerry owes him nothing. (We know TC isn’t doing it. You and he are long timers on the site and wouldn’t want to see it go down.)

  • KITTY says:

    word on the street is! this site is getting more attention now, so why would Berrgermiester want to change a thing.
    ps. using the word webmaster is so 1990’s ….GET REAL GRANDMA!

  • tim says:

    Bergersbeat won’t be going away because of some salacious posts…….it will only go away when jerry does, we ALL love Mr. Berger……but we hate ya’ll except Mickey

  • Eagle says:

    Can’t wait to find out who you really are, tim sleazeball.

    Jerry…you can publish Tim’s data on your site, or send it to me at my email address. Let’s get rid of this guy before he ruins Bergerbeat.

  • tim says:

    I’m not ruining Mr. Bergers site, Jerry is the BEST! you on the other hand are a total disappointment
    word on the street is you’re a complete douchebag, quit getting such a boner over my posts, focus on your own dolt posts

  • Eagle says:

    oh Kitty pull your head out of you’re ass
