Steve Martin in town staying at Lumiere and made a subtle jab at STL from his hotel window on Twitter. Funny stuff.
At least we've got the hippest archdiocese.

Sad. Because he actually took that photo from the Four Seasons (western side of hotel). That is a terrible view. St. Louis could do better on the North Riverfront.

Maybe he nor his promoters could afford a view to the southeast/southwest?
Okay, I would like to know how the freakin' MOONRISE HOTEL is not included on this list. PR failure?

Lack of totality?

^ looks about the same as for KC, which was included in the list.
^ It appears the North KC bar is in the path of totality but the North Loop is not.

^Thanks for sharing, San Luis Native. Wow, Kansas City looks so small and bleh on an a map! St Louis is looks so much bigger and clearly in another league in terms of density. 😜
Was watching this commercial on tv and I thought... WAIT a second.

I know that zoo. Apparently possibly minus the porcupine... per a random internet search.
Looks like St. Louis is the setting for a new comedy coming out in August! The movie poster is the arch! Trailer looks good.

I was surprised, given that the setup seems to be "friends get stuck in St. Louis instead of somewhere fun."
Just me or in that picture it looks like they would be at Downtown Parks airport in Cahokia based on the skyline appearance?

No. It looks to be where the Casino Queen or just North of the Eads Bridge. The Downtown Airport is Further South.

It's a common escape ploy. First claim it's too hot inside, then too cold, they take you outside, you say "just right" and run away. Dillinger used this exact ruse to escape Crown Point in 34'. True story.

When seeing "STL Sewers" mentioned I expected the story to be about the political establishment of the STL region. #SlightlyDisappointedItsAboutActualSewers
