In a time when our news feeds are filled with negativity, it is refreshing to see local business owners come together and support our community.

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending an event at Throwbacks Bar and Grill in St. Peters Missouri. The event featured Mouse Races hosted by local female impersonators, silent auction items, raffles, Price is Right style games and pay per plate BBQ. All proceeds benefit a local family who has been battling cancer.


Sponsors included the St. Louis Cardinals, Crown C Supply, Ferguson Roofing, Mouse Race STL, Throwbacks Bar and Grill, Avenue Real Estate Group and many more! Attendees enjoyed a cash bar with proceeds going to the family, while Mouse Race STL owner Marty and Janessa Highland (female impersonator/show director at Throwbacks) emceed the festivities. The event raised over $7000 in 6 hours.

Throwbacks plays host to numerous private parties and charity events throughout the year. Owners Nicole and Jason Tokun have created a unique space in St. Peters embracing anyone who steps foot through their doors. Drag Queens, Bikers, old or young this "Cheers" style bar prides itself on being a safe place where people of all walks of life can gather to have a good time! Check out this local watering hole for Karaoke (they are famous for it) on most Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday Evenings! They also have a Drag Queen and Burlesque Variety Show scheduled for Saturday, October 7th. The show is hosted by Janessa Highland and Charlotte Sumtimes (local burlesque legend) and features entertainers from the STL area! 

Upcoming events at Throwbacks include a charity event for 5 Acres Animal Shelter, Murder Mystery Dinner Shows, Game Show Nights, and much more! Like their Facebook page to keep up with all the happenings! 

Get out and about, and support local business!
