After the jazz performance, my friend Tom Ray wanted to head to downtown St. Louis to check out a rare groove DJ event called “Funkin’ Right.” It was taking place in the entertainment district on Washington Avenue, at a tapas bar called Lola’s, which was soon standing room only. The music was largely funk and breakbeat, with a little hip-hop thrown in. It was great fun.

What I always knew as the University City Loop has more recently come to be called the Delmar Loop, but despite its status as a St. Louis icon, it is actually in the suburb of University City. Anchored by an outstanding record store called Vintage Vinyl and an outstanding nightclub called Blueberry Hill, the Loop is a destination of shops and party-goers, marked by the occasional conga drummer, saxophonist or trumpeter.
