Clarksville Community Chamber of Commerce March Newsletter
Spring is here, and it almost feels like summer. The weather has been great for outdoor activities and the St Louis Cardinals are already on their way to 12 in 2012. Locally, the weatherman doesn’t think it’s going to flood, and my buddy says we may be in for a bad year of stormy weather! I can’t remember the last time we had tornadoes in February.
Clarksville just finished the 50 Miles of Art Studio Tours over March 24th and 25th. Many shops, houses, and art studios opened their doors from Clarksville to Hannibal on a beautiful spring weekend.
Coming up: April 28th will be the second annual Diva Day in Clarksville. Gather your best girlfriends, your sisters, your Mom and head to Clarksville, Missouri’s DIVA DAY! The first 100 Divas get a free “Diva Bag” embellished by Clarksville Artists. Stay the weekend, shop, get free handmade goodies from selected stores.
Boves Dry Saloon, Clarksville Missouri
Chris Bove always believed he would open an art gallery in Clarksville, but as the economy slipped in 2008 Chris began making other plans. If he couldn’t make art, Chris decided he would use his passion for making food and in December, 2009 Bove’s Dry Saloon opened at North Second Street. It became an immediate success with the local morning “coffee club” but it’s not only open for breakfast. Chris serves great lunch and dinner as well. Chris’ specialties are his homemade pizza sauce and Philly cheese steak sandwiches. The restaurant is family oriented and “kid” friendly. It seems kids find the décor especially inviting. As Chris says, “ you’re family when you walk in.”
