St. Louis Trip

26 02 2008

Every year, my husband’s company provides a company trip. This year it is to St. Louis. We will arrive on a Friday and return on a Sunday. Does anyone have any ideas as to what we should do?

I want to go to The Big Bang, a piano bar I have been to before and really enjoyed. I have never been in The Arch. We are staying at The Adams Mark which is downtown.

There is no work-related event that we are required to attend, though I am sure we will spend some time with my husband’s coworkers.

I would go to the City Museum. It’s not museum like at all and by that I mean “FUN!” (and it’s actually really good exercise because you crawl all around, climb steps, etc)

Oh, and another idea, maybe for a romantic night out you could either go to a tapas or fondue place. I think either would be really cool….

Enjoy! I have no recommendations as I’ve only been to the airport. Relax, eat tasty food and have fun!

You just saw The Big Bang Saturday night, you silly girl! BTW, I grabbed one of their bumper stickers today. It says “Bang This!” heh heh

Maturity is something I’m not good with. 🙂

When I hung out in St.Louis everyone went to the Landing, but it might just be college kids. I was in college then, so I didn’t really notice. You could take the brewery tour. That is a blast!

Brewery tour and Bowling Hall of Fame!

Hey, the Brewery tour is not for old people! You get to taste beer throughout the tour. I promise, it’s fun!

When will you be in STL? I live in STL and have a good grasp og what it has to offer – touristy and local.

The other commenters have made some good suggestions – City Museum, The Arch, the AB Tour – and I can personally vouch that at least one bartender at The Big Bang is HOT. I spent one day with him at and after a Cards game. Cousin T and I still refer to that day as Cute Boy Saturday.

Anyhoo, I daydream and digress.

What weekend? Are you driving or flying? If you’re driving and can bring a cooler, I recommend visiting Viviano’s grocery on The Hill. It’s a local grocery in our Italian neighborhood. If you like Vietnamese, there is a great place on Grand Ave called Pho Grand – food’s great and it’s cheap.

You know what? Just email me at guenosdias at prodigy dot net. I love this city and know where to go no matter what you’re looking for. I’d be happy to help if you’re not already on your way -tomorrow is Friday but I’m not sure which Fri-Sun you’ll be here.
