Mrs. Roper Pub Crawl in Weston MO - August 2023
On a hot August afternoon in Weston Missouri there was a flood of big red wigs, brightly colored muumuus and laughter echoing from one end of Main Street to the other. What in the world is happening here? Mrs. Roper doppelgängers had flooded into Weston from as far away as Wichita, Kansas. Their first stop was right out front of our shop, Cactus Creek, for a group photo & a cold drink in The Cellar at Cactus Creek.
You remember Mrs. Roper don't you? She was the quirky neighbor and original wife of the landlord from the 1980's sitcom Three's Company. Known for her floral muumuus, big sunglasses, loud jewelry including gaudy bracelets and earrings, and even larger and more colorful rings - Mrs. Roper's avant-garde style was ahead of it's time.
The last couple of years have brought on a new trend of Mrs. Roper pub crawls across the United States. Since covid we are feeling more free and ready for a good time - and any excuse to dress up and be someone new for a day is a spectacle waiting to happen. The enthusiastic response to Weston's Mrs. Roper Pub Crawl is a testament to the trend. With over one hundred participants you couldn't miss the parade of red wigs as they ducked in and out of Weston's plethora of watering holes. Without a doubt a good time was had by all and I believe is just the beginning. Stay tuned for what our friend and organizer, Carrie Turner, has in store next!
