So... back to the OP! Did you end up going, and if so, what did you do and see?? How did you like it?

I went. Worked the whole time. Not really an exiting town IMO.

Stayed in the Brentwood area at the Springhill suites. Wasn't horrible, wasn't great.

If I were going downtown I would be shopping for a bullet proof vest. Fly into the airport and head any direction except east.

I was working about a mile from Ferguson. Customer contact asked if I was bring a pistol, or wanted to borrow one. I took my own.

Honestly not thay scary if a town. Parts of Columbia are just as bad. Wouldn’t want to live there, but didn’t find it threatening. Did have some good food while there.

Dinner at Dominic's on the hill.
Walk around the neighborhood on the hill.
Stop at volpe and pick up sopprasetta and prosciuto.

At one time I was working there so much it felt like a second home....east side is a whole different world....I would always stay near SLU...some great restaurants and bars in walking distance, and everyone knew Johnnys restaurant, I hear its closed now.....not much I miss about that place, still go there some as InBev is a big customer of mine...

If you don't like thin crust, then that would be true. I had grown up on deep dish square pizza, but when I went there and heard all the "commotion" about Imo's I had to give it a try. I thought "YUCK!". Took a few times to find the right toppings, but eventually I came around to appreciate both the thin crust and the taste. Certainly not for everyone and not every time, but a distinct enjoyable experience.

We had pizza from there one day for lunch. Several different topping combinations. It was fabulous.

I love thin pizza. Always have. The cracker thin crust pizza you get in Italy is the best. Imo's is like a wet rag that someone puked on. Yuck. Sure would take some time to acquire a taste for it. Locals sure do act like its the greatest thing since sliced bread. I did love their toasted ravioli though. What high school did you attend?

For the record, my x is from St. Louis so spent a bit if time there and never was able to appreciate the place.
