Been listening to your gripes about no Dopers in St. Louis, and thought I’d point out that I live in Springfield (IL). A visit may well be in the works, my friend.
Actually, I’ve got several friends in Edwardsville (including the target of my romantic aspirations), so I’m down there about once every three weeks. I’ll have to leave you hanging for a bit, though, as she currently gets my undivided attention when I’m down there. (Actually, I try to give my unidvided attention, but she doesn’t always seem to have time for it. But that’s another thread.)
Are you actually in the city, or out in Metro East? And what is your favorite hangout(s)? Personally, I love the Landing (I know, I know, touristy as all get out, but what can I say.)
Anyway, I’ll be in touch.
