Oh dear, is it really time for this?

It's annoying to say, but time really is flying by. April is practically over, and that means we have only about 2 months left in our VSC year! Volunteers for next year are already lining up. We current volunteers are realizing that we will soon, even though the weather is growing more beautiful and being outdoors in St. Louis is becoming more fun everyday.

Since the calendar is rapidly swallowing my free weekends, I need to make a list of "must do"St. Louis things before I leave. So far I have already seen/done
  • The Arch
  • Anheuser Busch Factory Tour
  • Missouri History Museum
  • St. Louis Art Museum
  • City Museum
  • Old St. Louis Cathedral
  • Ted Drewes' frozen custard
  • Italian food at Ragazzi's on The Hill
  • cheap happy hour food in the Central West End
  • many, many meals in The Loop (Fitz's, Blueberry Hill, etc. etc.)
  • Cardinals game in Busch Stadium
  • Blues game in the Scottrade Center
  • Walking through Forest Park
  • Kickball League in Tower Grove Park
But I still should get to:
  • Botanical Gardens
  • Forest Park Zoo
  • Science Center
  • paddle boats in Forest Park
  • outdoor theater at the Muny
  • movies at the Moolah, Tivoli
  • Soulard Farmers Market
  • Bellefontaine Cemetery
  • "The Rock" Church/ 2 hour Gospel music Mass
  • St. Francis Xavier/SLU College Church
  • that log cabin church in Cahokia Texas Volunteer wants to visit
  • actually doing good photo shoots of the Cathedral and local parishes now that I have my tripod in town
Not. Enough. Time. To be. A good. St. Louisan.
(Although really, the only way to become a true St. Louisan is to grow up in your grandparents' house here and then attend a notable high school.)

Don't forget to attend a Latin High Mass, Sundays @ 10:00am, St. Francis de Sales Oratory

What? No Gus' Pretzels?

Found your blog at the Crescat. I grew up Catholic in St. Louis (St. Joseph Croatian Church and School at 12th and Russell). Your blog reminds me of how much I loved it there. Thanks

You're welcome, Dixie!

I'm gluten intolerant, so sadly most of the delicious starchy St. Louis food is off limits to me :-(
