We've arrived in St. Louis.. Now what to do???

It will be around four when we get to our hotel... It appears most of the museums will be closing soon for today...
Does anyone have suggestions for a family of four (kids 9 & 11) for a fun evening out in the city??

Go to Ted Drewes' and have a concrete. Show the kids what life in the fifties was like.

Boathouse - Forest Park for an evening paddleboat ride and dinner - but from my office window, the weather looks pretty iffy.

The Fountain - In midtown. Old fashioned soda fountain with amazing ice cream and desserts as well as dinner.

Circus Flora - You may still have time to get tickets. 1- ring, tent circus in Grand Center - in Symphony parking lot.

Shakespeare in Forest Park - doh! - not on Tuesdays. But if you're around tomorrow night, they're doing Taming of the Shrew outside. Saw it this weekend, awesome!

Wow.
We have fallen in love with the city. Had a great day at Grant's Farm and then spent the afternoon/evening at the Arch... then supper downtown near Busch stadium... Tomorrow is the "Six Flags" day... City Museum is planned for Friday... maybe the Zoo and the Botanical Garden or Butterfly house... considering the baseball game as well...
Fun, fun, fun stuff...
My kids are already begging to come back...
