Dustin and I went to St. Louis for the Missouri Valley tournament. We had a great time watching WSU win the tournament and taking in some sight-seeing. Here are some of the highlights from our trip.
We stayed at a great modern bed and breakfast called Dwell 912. It is a two-story little apartment at the back of a really old house that has been beautifully updated. Breakfast was yummy and the owner has chickens that contribute towards the breakfast.
Before the first game, we grabbed a mocha and walked around the City Garden
. Dustin just loves it when I suggest he take goofy pictures.
Some highlights from the first game. We had great center court seats that were up pretty high, but I still took a few good pictures with the point and shoot.
We visited the City Museum Friday night (it is open until midnight). If you have not been here before, you should go! It is a great place for kids to run and explore. We felt a little weird going without any kids, but we had a blast and at night there were more adults than kids. So many cool things to climb through and slides everywhere. We went down a 10-story spiral slide and I was still spinning when I reached the bottom of the slide. The pictures below are of the fun stuff to do outside.
We had dinner at Schlafly’s Tap Room one night. There was a huge oyster fest going on, so it was really busy. I had a great coffee stout and some yummy fish and chips. The next morning, we went on the Anheuser-Bush tour. The walking tour took us through the process of making beer and the best part was two samples at the end of the tour….and it was FREE!
When we travel, we like to eat at places we can’t eat at when home. After the beer tour, we hit Blues City Deli. This little neighborhood deli was busy and delish! Dustin’s sandwich was HUGE! For dinner that night, we found a local pizza place and filled up on a yummy veggie pizza.
I wish we could go back this week for the NCAA tournament, but we aren’t going to make it. We will make it back to St. Louis again sometime. There is so much more to do.
