Speaking of dogtown, I think it is important to have friends residing in key locations:
- A Soulard friend who has a warm house with a clean bathroom for Mardi Gras
- A Shaw friend on Flora Place for the art fair
- A friend on the WG 4th of July Parade Route
- A friend in Lafayette Square for the bike races
- Someone with a good view of fireworks (Kirkwood, WG, downtown, etc)
- and, finally, a Dogtown friend for the St. Patrick Parade. Amy Z. is my dogtown friend. Our picture above.
