Last week, a friend of mine from college, that I have not seen in 10 years called me to let me know that she would be in STL for business. She originally was hoping we could meet up for a dinner but we got to chatting like old times and she decided to come down a day early so we would have more time. Her flight gets in today at 10 am and in addition to some major catching up I am going to show her around town.
The number 1 must see on everyone's list their first time to STL is the arch
I am insisting she see the beautiful Forest Park
and some of my favorite parts of the city
We will have to dine on traditional St Louis foods, like Imos pizza. I don't know what it is about this pizza, but St Louisans are obsessed with this (me included). When my sister comes back to town the first thing we always do is go get this pizza, and my brother in law that lives in Chicago always takes one with him as he is leaving STL and heading home.
It is paper thin and has provel cheese on top, which apparently is a unique flavor of cheese found only here
toasted ravioli ( a STL original)
and we will satisfy our sweet tooth with some gooey butter cake
and since our friendship was founded in college, a little drinking trip down memory lane
our top 3 drinks of choice!!
