KMOX's Charlie Brennan has started a campaign to have an outdoor dining venue opened on the Arch grounds. One of our local restauranteurs might be tapped to operate the facility.
However, federal officials including the Arch superintendent, note that such uses are not allowed at national monuments.
Personally, I favor the idea. For comparison, if you've been to the Eifel Tower, are there similar outdoor food and drink places up close to its base?
