Ballpark Village's newly announced dress code has hit the Village People community especially hard, leaving half of the band barred altogether from the premises each night after 9 p.m.

The Native American Village Person, whose trademark outfit includes both a forbidden bandana and an unacceptable lack of sleeves, was particularly incensed. "It's deplorable," he told us between reps at his local Christian youth-oriented gym. "Me and my friends -- the Construction Worker and the Biker Guy -- we are hard-working people, who deserve to be able to relax and enjoy the new entertainment district just like everyone else, without having to worry about being judged for our appearances."

"These unfair rules and regulations are discriminatory against portions of the population," he continued.

When reached for comment, the Police Officer Village Person just kind of shrugged.

Seems to me that the dress code isn't much different than what you'll find at night clubs and things of that nature. I do find restrictions on game day to be unnecessary, unless there's a disclaimer that the dress code starts again 2 hours after the game ends or something like that. Bars and night clubs typically ban hats, jerseys, long shirts, and the like. They are trying to cut down on gang fights and people bringing in and hiding weapons.

Yes Kevin and Steve, you are both absolutely correct. I am just a drop in the bucket. I am fine with that. I am sure there are other ppl out there who feel the same way as I do.

Roy they will not miss your 20 dollars for a minute. The place will be packed with people that will be glad to adhere to the dress code. The Cardinals ownership have plenty of money so they can easily dictate what clientele that want and don't want frequenting the village. They do not want the place turning into a thug and gang bang pit like so many other places in the St Louis and metro area.

I'm thinking the second floor mentioned is going for more of a "fancy" place to eat kind of feel. You can wear jerseys on game days and they just want a nice top and pants that fit other days. No size 4XL white tee shirts on dudes that should wear a M or on women who suddenly think it's a tee shirt dress. I've seen it. Don't like the dress code party somewhere else. All I'm saying is I can see where they are trying to go with this venue.

This is the decision of Ball Park Village management. It is their right. Just do not expect me to spend my hard earned money in this recession. I will spend my money down the street at the Broadway Oyster Bar where where it says leave your attitude at the ball park. That is actually what I will do.

They're ALL banned from the second floor 'cause they're wearing hats of all things.

Yep, they don't want the "bangers" that ruined Union Station thinking they are welcome to show up and ruin this venue too !  Good idea and good proactive planning..

Jez....trashy st. Louisians s so but hurt that they can't wear their sleeveless nascar shirts. I like the dress codes...maybe I can go somewhere in this shthole city and not have to sit next toothless mcgee in their sweat pants.

You'd think the Navy guy from the Village People would get a pass. Don't they support the troops? Oh wait, that's right. He's gay. No fair.

It is kinda weird that a place so directly connected to a sporting venue has such a strict dress code.

Wow, RFT, way to stir up shit over....what, exactly? Ballpark Village having a dress code like so many other places? Where are the bitchy blogs against the military, Catholic schools, and certain nightclubs?

Ahh, apparently "soldier guy" started out as "athlete", I was wondering how he had moved up the ranks in every branch of military so quickly- its all fake. I'm heartbroken now. Also "biker guy" is "leather man" so now I'm going to look at my leather man tool so differently now. It's not it's fault, there's noting wrong with it, it was made that way- its lied to me for so many years. I would've accepted it no matter what.

I guess I'm the only one that will appreciate the view more if we can get St. Louis to class it up a little bit... Put in some effort ladies and gentleman! Leave the sweatpants at home for post-breakup crying and ice cream eating...

Impersonating an officer and stolen valor are ok, what's with the biker guy? Is he wearing assess chaps or something?

So, you can't dress like a hoosier or a thug. Where's the problem?
