This is a local spot for authentic mexican fare. It is a tiny location where there is always a crowd so be prepared for a wait of about 10 min to order. They make your food fresh to order and have all kinds of things you really can't find elsewhere like brain tacos for instance. I would highly recommend this place to eat.
Jessica Lener is a great real estate agent. She was our agent while we were house hunting and she went out of her way to help us in any way she could. She really knows the laws and the procedures to go through. She is very friendly and is easy to get along with. She will really try to get you the best house at the best deal for you. I would highly recommend her.
Carl's Drive in is a hole in the wall attraction of St. Louis. It is small and has a sit down bar. There is usually one or two people working the kitchen and register. The food is amazing. Has burgers and fries and shakes. Parking can be hard to find at times, you may have to park on the street. Highly recommend.
El Maguey has really great authentic mexican food. The atmoshpere can be a bit hectic at times and they always have spanish music videos playing. The chips and salsa are so yummy. They have smoking and non smoking areas. I would highly recommend. They accomodate for children with highchairs.
This place is the best place to get your produce hands down. They have amazing prices on produce year round and the quality far surpasses any other supermarket I have experienced. They have a vast cheese selection as well. Other items are comparible in price to other stores, but buy your produce here. Also great for kids because they have a model train that run around a track on top of the aisles. Highly recommend.
This store is pretty neat. It is run off of donations by the rich people of St. Louis. There you will find Coach bags, Dolce & Gabbana, etc. The pickings can be slim at times. But it is always fun to browse through the store. I always find great kids stuff there. Would recommend.
Wombats is a resell shop for men's and womens clothing. They sell high end items mostly. They seem to be a bit overpriced on the items such as Gap, etc. The owner runs the store and is very nice. The selection of clothing is great. I would recommend checking them out, for me they were a bit too expensive but that will not be the case for everyone.
The St Louis Philharmonic Orchestra is a geat orchestra made up of local volunteer musicians from the St Louis area. Dr. Robert Hart Baker is the conductor and is a wonderful conductor. He doensn't even live in St Louis but flies in every week for rehearsals. The orchestra puts on about 5-6 regular concerts per year as well as a couple of "pops" concerts in late summer and around Christmas. They play the real music, not watered down versions of the classics, and have big name soloists that perform with them like David Halen, the concertmaster of the St Louis Symphony. Season tickets can be had for reasonable donation amounts. Admission to individual concerts is "free" but donations are highly encouraged - and hey, these musicians aren't getting paid and the money from tickets just goes to cover the costs of the orchestra so I always try to be generous. This organization is a treasure in our community and is worth catching a concert or two every year. You can check out their website at http://www.stlphilharmonic.org/ for more info.
I recenlty bought my first pair of Dansko shoes from this store. I shopped all around but finally settled on this store because of the service I received. They were very nice and not at all pushy. Also, you can't beat the support of Dansko shoes. The staff is very knowledgable and can help you find the best shoe for your feet. Parking is adequate.
This is called a remodeling store but it is mostly filled with high quality solid wood furniture. Many of the items are hand crafted pieces made by the hands of Amish crafsmen (and maybe women, who knows). I searched all over St Louis and didn't find any other store that sells solid wood Amish furniture. Prices are a bit high, but you definitely get what you pay for. The solid oak furniture will last a lifetime and beyond if you care for it. The folks who run it are great - they gave me a discount even though i had just missed the sale. Parking is easily available.
