I’ve been in St. Louis for the weekend and I’m sitting at STL right now as Southwest proves once again that they’re all about the delays (seriously, it seems like half of the flights leaving here tonight are delayed). The good news is that I’m sitting by Gate E6 and there’s some plywood up across from the gate promising two new places to eat and drink.
I don’t know when they’ll open, but if you’re flying through STL, you’ll soon be able to indulge in Italian food from The Pasta House Co. and, more importantly, beer from local favorite Schlafly’s. I had their pale ale this weekend and I was definitely impressed. In a town known for Budweiser, it takes a lot of guts to open a craft brewery, so give Schlafly a chance the next time you wind up here. I always like to give some love to the little guys.
STL is certainly not my favorite airport to fly through, but at least soon I can hide my disdain through a river of local suds.
