Tue update: Buttercup video, new burger bar, Sky Ride planned for the Pyramid, Pints for Pups

Buttercup, the duck with the prosthetic leg who has been in the news, made a march down the Peabody red carpet this morning. After he arrived at the fountain, he was named “Honorary Duck” by the Peabody Duckmaster. Here’s a video of Buttercup’s red carpet march.

The MBJ reports that a new burger bar is coming to the Downtown core. The restaurant will be at 94 S. Main, in the space that is currently Dream Berry. It will be opened by Jeff Johnson, owner of the Local locations in Downtown and Midtown. Always room down here for one more place that serves great burgers!

Bass Pro unveiled its revised design plans for The Pyramid yesterday. Plans include a Sky Ride in the northwest corner of the Pyramid, a paid attraction similar to the rides to the top of the St. Louis Arch.

There will be a Pints for Pups fundraiser next Sunday, July 28 on the patio of the Green Beetle. A $10 raffle ticket gets you a craft beer and a chance to win some great prizes. Pets will be welcome on the patio. Party will start at 4, drawing at 7.

That’s all for now. I will probably hit the Silly Goose after work tonight and then figure out the rest from there.
