In one of the ‘romance’ threads, somebody joked about showing up here in St. Louis. Half-jokingly, I responded: “If any number of you Dopers come visit the city before the end of the year, I will pick up the complete tab for drinks and dinner.”
Then I started getting email, asking me whether I was serious. I am completely serious. If any of you are willing to make the multiple-hour trip to get here, I’m willing to spring for the beer.
It looks like at least some people are interested. How 'bout the rest of you? Shall we try to gather all the Midwestern Dopers in one place?
Laugh hard; it’s a long way to the bank.
