    Heading to St. Louis!

    The fam and I are heading to St. Louis for the better part of a week and my wife has gotten online and found a bunch of places....Hard Rock cafe, grants farm, brewery, zoo, 6 flags, and several other places to go, but do any of you that live around there have any suggestions as to what to see and do while we are there? I have two boys, 9 and 6 and my daughter that will be 1 the day we hit hard rock cafe.

    Thanks in advance!

    Default St. Louis

    Check out a Cards game if you can. Brewery tour is cool. If you're without the kids, try Paddy O's after the game and some of the better strip bars in the country are on what we call "the East Side" East St. Louis, but be careful over there.

    If you've got the kids the whole time the Zoo is good and try the Magic House. KSHE 95 (94.7) plays tons of VH. Got a prick dj who blows Sammy and bashes VH, but besides that a pretty cool station.

    +1 on Imos man, that is the best pizza on Earth. It's just the thin crust variety cut into little squares, but that place is just magical or something, it's to good for words. Ted Drews (spelling) is a big deal to us as well, it's an ice cream place, they have a bunch all over the city and county. Toasted Ravioli is what were known for, but I don't see the big attraction personally.

    Also, the Cards game is a good idea, were really nice fans, not like the bozos in Boston, Chicago, or New York, plus we actually follow the team (just watching the highlights on Sportscenter doesn't count).

    The Busch tour is cool as well, it's really interesting, plus it's a huge freaking place, they have there own named streets on site.

    There's a place I think is called the City Museum. My family has been there several times with my niece and nephews and the kids love it. I guess it's a huge playground made out of old junk with lots of things to climb on and lots of slides. I'm not sure where in St. Louis it is, though.

    "The Hill" area is well known for great food. They have an art museum in Forest Park (Near the zoo) if your into art and a Science Center, as well. The arch is a must. It's not only the ride up in the Arch. They have a lot of stuff underground, below the arch.

    There is a lot to do there.....Man,I miss St louis...

    What a small world! I was logging in today to see what was going on in St. Louis over the next few days. I fly out tonight on business there for the better part of the week. I may have to stay over the weekend now to catch Journey, though.

    The Chicago show was outstanding. You won't be sorry.
