Every rocket needs a launch pad

By: 
CHRIS RODEN FOR THE LACLEDE COUNTY RECORD

 Visitors looking for rockets at the Launch Pad store on Butler Drive across from Copeland will find just one. “Rocket” is Randy Massey’s glass blower persona.
Massey has been playing with fire as shapes glass for over 11 years, working first in his basement and now at Launch Pad.
He and his neighbor store, Black Heart Tattoo, plan a block party for Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. at their stores on Butler Road across from Copeland with a bike and car show, a bounce house, over $2,000 worth of prizes, music, food trucks and more.
The store’s name was suggested by Ginger Stephens, Massey’s girlfriend, who has since passed. She told him that every Rocket needs a launch pad.
