If you're going to the St. Louis show, do yourself a favor and make time to check out the City Museum, a very unique, hard-to-explain downtown attraction.

Website: www.citymuseum.org

It's an entire building taken over by artists who have recycled all sorts of items and materials to create a one-of-a-kind, DIY experience. You can climb on, through, and under almost anything you see. View a live circus act or two. Visit an on-site aquarium. Buy some vintage clothes. Slide down a four-story spiral slide originally built to transport shoes, then find yourself lost in the caves beneath the building.

It's the kind of place that might make you ask yourself "why did all this get built," to which the creators would probably respond "why not?"

I don't have anything to do with this place, apart from having visited a few times. It strikes me as something that many of us here would enjoy.

And if you're still not convinced:

On Friday and Saturday nights, they're open until 1 a.m.

And yes, there's a bar.

So who's in?
