The St. Claude Arts District was created by Jeffrey and his partner Andrea Garland.
They opened L'art Noir and saw that Barristers and Farrington Smith were opening on St. Claude.
That is when they decided to have co-ordinated openings and choose the 2nd Sat of the month and came up with the name SCAD.
KK was not involved in the efforts of the SCAD.

Red Beans and Ricely yours!
Oh wait you probably don't know what that means, It's a reference to Louis Armstrong for the newbies......
