Recently, KC-style ribs, sandwiches, and other chicken wing riffs have launched out of kitchens in St. Louis, and a smashburger ghost kitchen is on the horizon.

Last month, Dave and Kara Bailey, owners of Baileys’ Restaurants, introduced Wing Ding Dong, a chicken-wing based ghost kitchen concept operating out of Baileys’ Range.

This Thursday, they plan to roll out a new concept: Playing Ketchup, which will feature all-beef “ripper” hot dogs and brats—specifically the Grant’s Farm brat from G&W Meat, prepared in Zwickel, onion, and seasoning.

The 351-room, Marriott Autograph Collection hotel had been scheduled to reopen in 2018, but the project was delayed by construction problems and COVID-19 business restrictions.

A ribbon-cutting event is scheduled Oct. 15 at the hotel, located at South El Paso Street and San Antonio Avenue in Downtown.

“Once in a great while, you happen upon a place that captures time and everything that is good about life. That’s the feeling people (will) experience” at the hotel, Carlos Sarmiento, the hotel general manager, said in a statement.
