What we're about

The St. Louis Social Club started out as the Cobra Club. When some other groups either faltered or were going to disband for some reason, I took them over. Since there was some redundancy and planned events were open to all of these groups, it made sense to streamline operations and merge all in to one group. Although the name Cobra Club came about solely because my nickname for years was "Snake", the uniqueness seem to cause confusion about what we were. We had nothing to do with reptiles, old Mustangs, or secondary insurance but are about having fun and socializing. So to simplify matters, the name was changed to The St. Louis Social Club which should be pretty self explanatory. We are about getting out and doing a wide variety of activities. We are not a brotherhood or sisterhood group. We are a humanhood. We accept members without bias such as age, marital status, gender, etc.. As long as you like to have fun and socialize (without drama), you are ok with us.

Another thing that separates us from other groups is that many members like to give back to their community in some way. Among our posted activities you will occasionally see volunteer opportunities. Since I am an active volunteer for many different charities or causes, I get request for help. I always encourage members that can, to help out. When we do something as a group, it usually ends up as fun anyway and it will always leave you with a good feeling.

The St. Louis Social Club is sponsored and managed by my company, Cobra Productions. (gotta get that name in there somewhere). We currently have two other Meetup groups we run as well. They are The St. Louis Singles 40+ which is for those who are over 40 and single and The Liberal Boomers, for those born roughly from 1946 to 1964 who are more liberal minded. You can join one or all three if it fits. There are times when all 3 groups are invited to the same event. Other events may be specific for only one group.

While Cobra Productions sponsors the group, there are advertising avenues open for someone who would like to appeal to one or all of the groups. On occasion (it has happened once in three years) we may have a value added fund raiser. In simple terms, "value added" might mean that the cost for an event is, say, 7 bucks. We might round it off to 10 bucks with the other 3 going to offset cost. Please know, these are rare and more last resort than the norm. This group was not formed to make money, I just don't want to lose money.

Finally, the group is always looking for others who would like to plan events. We are are also always open for suggestions, questions, or comments. I can be reached via e-mail or by phone - 314-717-3211.

Thanks, and I look forward to welcoming you as a member.

The Blues Cruise w/ Jeremiah Johnson

Gateway Arch Riverboats

Please join us as we rock and roll on the river. We always have a blast on Blues Cruise. First there is always great music and this time is no different as the popular Jeremiah Johnson band will be playing. The dance floor will be open and active. And if that’s not enough there is an open air top deck where you can go to see some great views of the riverfront, the Stan Musial bridge and just enjoy the cruise on the river. This event will probably sell out so get your tickets now. Tickets are about $22.00 and you can get them on line or via the phone. Google the Gateway Arch and you will find something on the riverboat cruises. If you have problems finding it, call me[masked] and I can help you. Some helpful tips. They do sell drinks on the boat but very little in the way of food. I would suggest eating (and drinking) beforehand. Also, there is no assigned seats so first come, first serve. I try to get there early and get up in line to get a table(s) on the level you enter on (the main level. It is always helpful to have more there to possibly get more seats together. Once again, rsvp’s help so I know who to look for. Last, allow yourself time to get parked and on the boat. Parking is usually available on the river front depending on the water level.
