Hi, all - where will the favorite "watering hole" in St. Louis be? In Rosemont, most seemed to end up at the Crowne Plaza after the meetings and events petered out. Miz G

My guess is the closest hotel bar near the convention.

The convention center is just down the street fron the riverfront which is called Lacledes Landing.
There are MANY BARS and hot spots down there.
The hardest part is deciding where everyone will meet at.
The Landing is great and has something for everyone and its right by the hotels. See you in St. Louis and dont forget about the Columbia Haunt Tour on Friday nite.
Go to www.columbiahaunttour.com for ticket info. Seating is limited on the tour busses so reserve your seats today!

There is so much EVERY night!

I think the default will need to be the bar at the main hotel - Thats how it was in Chicago -

The thing is when? Every night something is going on... we will just have to see...

Thanks!

I think most people are staying at the Ren Hotel. I'm sure that will be the nesting ground. However on Thrusday you have Shanes dinner, you have our tour, then on Friday you have the tour to Columbia, I'm having some people over to my place for some meetings, I'm sure people will hang out at the Ren Hotel and chat it up, and then on Saturday you have our tour and party plus I'm sure people will be chatting up endlessly again at the Ren Hotel.

Sunday I'll be at our haunted house after the show if anyone is staying over and wants to hang out let us know. We should set something up!

LOL everytime someone brings up that event, all I think about is some old movie: "He whose name shalt not be spoken"... LOL, sorry had to get that off my chest

At night, they literally light up the street all up and down Washington St. It creates a beautiful cityscape. There's lots of places to go for both food and drink...cool bars, quaint Irish pubs, sushi, seasonal cuisine, and more. There's even a swanky bowling ally down there. And all that is within walking distance! Probably the closest/convenient place to gather for drinks other than the hotel bar would be Kitchen K. However, I don't recommend their food. For a good meal right on the Washington strip, I'd recommend Lucas Park Grille, right down the street.

Within a 5 minute drive there's even more fun areas...Laclede's Landing, Soulard, Lafayette Square and Lumiere Place. For outstanding dining on Laclede's Landing, I'd recommend Drunken Fish (sushi). In the Soulard area, I'd recommend either Soulard's Restaurant or Sidney Street Cafe. And in Lafayette Square, I'd recommend Vin De Set...especially if it's a nice night because they have a great roof-top bar. However, nothing can beat the roof-top bar at Lumiere Place...It's beautiful up there!

For breakfast, I highly recommend the amazing crepes at Rooster, AND Rooster is within walking distance from the convention center too!

Socialize? I didn't know people did that there. I always just sat around my room afterwards. I guess that happens when you are a boring guy.

My friend was in St. Louis last summer and she said she a MUST-DO is City Museum on either a Friday or Saturday night - they open from 5p.m. through 1a.m. and have bars throughout the place - and ADULTS take over this crazy playground thing...

This seems like it's not your normal museum:

The playground looks like it was designed my a Jim Warfield - SUPER BIZARRE. The entire thing looks totally off-the wall. LOVE IT!

I LOVE unique/kitschy and crazy watering holes, so we may be hitting this place up!

I have tried to make it to that place each time I have been in St. Louis and have never gotten the chance. Maybe this will be the time.

I know I loved Crown Plaza, had such a good time but only got to go once before the move, Sh..."He whose name shall not be spoken" swears they moved it because I drank up all the booze. I hope there is a place to go and knock back the drinks and raise a bit of hell while telling lies of how many square foot we have in our haunts...remember despite what she says size does matter or you would at least think so by the way we all toss square footages around.

I am the Graystone Manor resident drunk so any other late night party people please lets find a place to get into trouble and tell our lies.

I'm not sure if people will be that thrilled with City Museum or not. Its one of those things...if you like just whacky artistic creations you'll love it. It's not a polished place its more of a place with attractions made from stuff they could find and weld together. Its an artistic expression for sure... the guy who runs the place is always in trouble with the city because he just does and asks later. I wish I could get away with that. LOL

I know they are open late so check it off if you get the chance. If you are bringing kids go to The Magic House much cooler.

City Museum does have some caves inside that are cool... down the street from the Ren Hotel on the same street in fact is a blacklight bowling alley that is really cool!!!

I think on either Thursday morning or Friday I am definately going to go to the city musuem. I like to look at the kind of odd stuff and it seems pretty cheap. What is the magic house?
