F. SCOTT FITZGERALD WALK ABOUT

Saturday, April 10

UW Eau Claire Professor, local musician and RHA member Joel Pace led us on a tour from Overlook Park to the Commodore and back around to the University Club of Saint Paul. It was an engaging Walk-About—filled with poetry, scat and deep knowledge of F. Scott, Zelda and their entourage. The tour of the Commodore and the University Club was a major reminder of the beautifully preserved history and architecture in our neighborhood.
