I love connecting through STL airport, because the art is ALWAYS on point! When I am working a lil too much, I love that I am able to see Artwork in most airports, but STL is my fav. There are two areas where art is displayed, and when I’m in the airport for a bit, I try to visit both sites. This time I was only able to visit one art ‘gallery’ because it was on the way to my gate.

Not exactly a nighttime activity but its equally important … Brunch!
I think I speak for the Planet when I say, I live for a good brunch, especially when there’s bottomless Bellini’s. While in St. Louis last Sunday, I did extensive research (I googled) and decided to give Polite Society a try. The menu is as you’d expect, different specialties of eggs; beaten, sunny side, and scrambled, with some dishes of toast and burgers in the mix. I went with the French toast with seasonal berries and whipped cream, a weird choice since I don’t like eggs or French toast for that case but I’m a weird one. The berries were fresh, and a welcomed add-on to the French toast. Pleasantly surprised the French toast didn’t have that eggy taste, toasted with a nice caramel coloring, simple beautiful.
My homeboy went with the infamous brunch choice, Chicken & Waffles. Instead of coming along with the usual chicken wings, it was a panko crusted cutlet which was baked? Fried? Oven fried? To perfection. Then mixed in the with the syrup, also something I don’t usually care for on my plate, it was delicious. I wanted to trade plates with him but he was set on eating his own food. Selfish, I know. I’m assuming the waffles were delicious as his plate was clean when it was time to pay the bill.
Also Note, There is a bar, obviously but it fills up pretty quickly as this is a popular spot for Brunch. I’d advise making a reservation to ensure a table, (I think that’s what grown ups do) but get there prior to the reservation so you can have a drink at the bar.
I’ve been a Nelly fan since I can remember! So when I got the opportunity to fly to STL, omg, I was elated! Unfortunately I researched where Nelly would be, but he was preforming the night prior in Vegas so I doubt I’d get the chance to run into him! Since I wouldn’t be seeing him, I did the next best thing, I explored the arch. The iconic Arch, I mean.
