    Help me find a drink in StL

    OK, I hate to create a new thread, but a quick search turned up nothing. I am in St. Louis for the week and then back late next week for another 10+ days. My office is right downtown intersection of Broadway/Washington. Anyway is there a good place to get a drink, and maybe food too, good liquor stores, that any of you know? Dane?

    Never realized before I close StL is to Kentucky.... I am having thoughts....

    Re: Help me find a drink in StL

    Mapquest says three hours to Paducah and four hours to Louisville.

    Having grown up in southern Illinois when nearly all roads were two lanes and went down main street of every one-horse town along the way, I forget what changes the Interstate Highway System has brought. I lived in Flora, IL, and it was two+ hours to St. Louis.

    Here's hoping Dane checks in. Have you sent him a PM? If he's set to receive email notification, you might hear from him a little sooner.

    Edit: I just did an Advanced Search for keyword: louis and user: gr8erdane. He has posted many times about places he has taken visitors.

    Yeah I PM'd him. I must not be good with search I tried that and didn't turn up much, but I'll try again when I finish "working" for the day...

    Internet wine and spirits, the big online retailer, is right across the river. As is East St. Louis, garden spot of the nation. (Better put a just kidding on that one, especially with what I'm about to say.)

    The old French part of downtown St. Louis, over near the Budweiser plant, is an interesting area for restaurants and bars. I will say, however, and remembering that I live in Chicago and consider myself a big city kind of guy, downtown St. Louis can get more than a little scary after dark.

    They are very expensive. I remember ording some VW Rye, once the order was complete I was two limbs shy.

    Take a tour of the Annheuser-Busch plant and enjoy the free samples - especially if they offer you the unpasteurized stuff. Be sure to go to Ted Drews for the best Frozen Custard you've ever tasted.

    Uh, no, well I did sign up for Slipknot's but don't think I've ever posted. Honestly, I barely have time keep up with this one (and really I don't) much less anything else. Bottom line though I have met some great people on here that I now consider friends so I will always have a little bit of time for this!

    And oh yeah, I am not leaving this city for my second trip (next week) without see the A-B facility...

    If you get a chance to go to Derdorph and Heart's (spelling) they not only have a great selection but serve really good food!
