Update December 15: Crews are currently inside tag and its two neighbors, Chipotle and Noodles and Company, to clear out the toxic smoke smell. Both restaurants will be closed till tomorrow. Rearrange your dining plans accordingly.

Inside the store, many of the clothes are still intact. Fortunately yesterday's disaster seems to have been more smoke than actual fire.

-------

Timeless Authentic Garments (tag), a used clothing store in the Delmar Loop, caught fire this afternoon. No one was injured, but smoke continues to pour out of the store's open door and hover over the street.

The cause of the fire is still unknown, though word is it started in the back room and may have something to do with the fact that the store is flanked by two restaurants with gas grills, Chipotle and Noodles and Company, and that it contained plenty of vintage clothing made from polyester and other flammables.

In 2008, the year it opened, Riverfront Times chose the store as Best Place to Buy Used Clothing.

The RFT has trouble knowing whether it's supposed to be a competitor to the Post Disgrace or a cheap knockoff of The Onion

It was the collection of  25 vintage Tammy Chapman panties from Verlins that caught fire. That old whore had them on consigment at Timeless Authentic Garments and the embers from her fiery crotch, thought to be long extinguished, erupted in flames just as Peter Kinder stopped by for a sniff. The collection, valued at $.39, was a total loss. Thankfully the were covered by insurance.

Neither its an entertainment paper, its only good for drink specials, bands, and the nutbars in the comment section. My case is made by the circle jerk the RFT had when metro-mix announced its end in STL.

John Dunn warned Tammy that she would regret talking to the press. Posts like this make his point.

did metromix advertise anywhere else besides on KSDK's news? did they have street teams?

That's what you get when you play the kinds of games Tammy played.

Lighten up! It's satire in case you can't figure it out.
