Mind Reeling After Blog Review on #BlogChat

In the past, #BlogChat (the most awesome Twitter chat known to man, held weekly from 8 to 9 pm central on Sundays) did blog reviews and I remember thinking how cool it would be to get input from so many awesome bloggers. I wasn’t sure exactly what I would get even though I had seen […]

Climate Change & The Video that has Me Thinking About It

Weeks ago I saw a promo for Showtime’s new “Years of Living Dangerously” and knew I had to watch it. Then last week I went through the DVR menu to find the show and be sure the series was set. Then Sunday night I was glued to the TV as the show aired, featuring three […]

St Louis A to Z: Laclede, Lewis & Clark and Lemp Mansion

I have to admit that writing all of these A to Z posts is really making me think a lot about the city I now call home. And while several of the topics here are related to a specific bit of history or a specific place, but for me that’s helping me patch together this […]

Kiener Plaza St. Louis

St. Louis A to Z: Kemper Art Museum and Kiener Plaza

Two really different places come to mind with the letter K — Kemper Art Museum and Kiener Plaza. Kemper Art Museum This one came to mind fairly quickly and yet I haven’t been there yet so Kemper Art Museum is on my to-do list! The museum is on the campus of Washington University and offers artwork […]

St. Louis A to Z: John Goodman, Joplin House, Jefferson Barracks, Jewel Box & the Jefferson National Expansion

With a star on the Delmar Loop’s walk of fame and a role in one of my favorite movies (The Big Lebowski), John Goodman has earned a prominent spot on my St. Louis A to Z. John Goodman I think John Goodman is probably one of those American actors that lots of people would like […]

Imo's Pizza -- the leading I in the St. Louis A to Z

St. Louis A to Z: Imo’s Pizza, Interstates and Ikea Dreams

What’s something you should know about St. Louis that starts with the letter I? Well I think most St. Louis natives will point to Imo’s Pizza! But I’m guessing the interstates here get as much discussion and it seems like Ikea has grabbed the spotlight a bit too. So those will be the Is of […]

St. Louis A to Z: Hockey, The Hill, Hi-Pointe Theater, & Hodak’s

I had been sure that H would be for The Hill, St. Louis’ Italian section of town. It is awesome and will certainly be covered here, but I decided to put a different H at the start of this list. H is for hockey. Hockey It may seem weird that I’d feature hockey. Afterall. I […]

Grant's Farm

St. Louis A to Z: Grant’s Farm, Gateway City, Gooey Butter Cake & Gus’ Pretzels!

After F was such a no brainer for me on the city of St. Louis A to Z, I feel like I may not do justice to the letter G but hopefully this post will come together. Grant’s Farm It probably seems a bit odd that someone as Southern as me would feature Grant’s Farm […]

St. Louis A to Z: Forest Park, the Fox Theater, Frostbite Ice Cream & more

It was no question for me what I’d write about with the letter “F” but obviously I am a little delayed. I let the size of the topic overwhelm me a little. While there are a few things that start with F that I think should be pointed out for St. Louis, Forest Park overshadows […]

St Louis from A to Z

St. Louis A to Z: The Exorcism that Became Legendary

I had no idea what I would write for E in my A to Z, but luckily my friend Danielle was willing to go through the list of my ideas early on and help fill in. E was just one of several letters I was stumped on. It shocked me to see her write in […]

The Delmar Loop

St. Louis A to Z: Delmar Loop, Dogtown, Dred Scott & Dierberg’s

One of my nearby places definitely deserves to take the lead in the “D” category! Delmar Loop When I was looking for a neighborhood I would call my own, I had friends in St. Louis showing me around before I even had a realtor. I have to admit, the Delmar Loop grabbed me and helped […]

St. Louis A to Z: Cardinals, City Museum, Central West End & More

What are the Cs of St. Louis? The third day into my A to Z on St. Louis has a lot to showcase. St. Louis Cardinals The St. Louis Cardinals are an amazingly unifying force in St. Louis. All year long, you see people wearing red. And Cardinals caps are a big part of the […]

Missouri Botanical Garden

St. Louis A to Z: Botanical Garden, Butterfly House, Blueberry Hill & More

Hopefully I find letters later in the alphabet that let me touch on just one topic, but it won’t be “B” cause there are just too many of them. And when it comes to seeing places like this, you really can’t go wrong! Missouri Botanical Garden St. Louis is home to the Missouri Botanical Garden — […]
