Trip Report St. Louis Trip Report

Jump to last reply

One and a half days in St. Louis:

Breweries/Brewpubs: made it to 9 of them (Six Row, Anheuser, Morgan Street, Square One, Buffalo, Urban Chestnut, Kirkwood Station, Ferguson). Urban had the best overall beer, Ferguson had the worst overall.

The Gateway Arch: very cool, walked around the grounds and went to the top. Riding to the top and being at the top is kind of scary but worth it. Only thing my wife and I did not like was how crowded and loud it was at the top. Too many people allowed up there at once.

Walked around a bit between Busch Stadium and the Edwards Jones Dome, checking out the Outside area of the Historic Courthouse and the Kiener Plaza. Ran into the TUMS building, had no idea.

Saw the Chuck Berry statue in the loop.

Had mac & cheese at Cheese-ology: good mac & cheese with lots of choices (kind of pricey).

Checked out Scottrade Center and hockey statues.

Checked out Busch Stadium and baseball statues. Did not tour.

Saw the Kung-Fu Rabbit.

Checked out edward Jones Dome (worthless looking junk, can hardly tell the Rams play there).

We did not get to try any BBQ, we tried to get into Pappy's three different times and tried to get into Bogart's once. Every time we tried, the line was out the door and was going to take too much time away from our short trip.

Stopped by the IceZone at The Mills to see the Blues practice. Got to meet and get autographs from Bernie Federko and a radio or tv announcer (forgot his name).
