    Going to St. Louis for the 1st time this weekend. 2 of my friends can't make it so I'll be going solo now. Will be there Friday 5pm-Sunday afternoon, then going back to Georgia.

    Basically just need help narrowing the things I want to do down since I'll have very limited time. I was thinking for breweries:

    Friday Night - Perennial, Schlafly Tap Room (have a soft spot for them because I love their Pumpkin Ale and they were one of the first craft breweries I drank), 4 Hands.

    Saturday - Narrow Gauge (eat there?), then Side Project Brewery and Cellar (since they are so close), then 2nd Shift and Heavy Riff. Maybe hit Anheuser Busch since I am a brewer and it would be cool to tour the facility, if anything.

    For bottle shops, I hear Wine and Cheese Place and Craft Beer Cellar are the best. What shelf beers should I be looking out for here? Trying to find stuff I can't get in GA but am not super familiar with what beers I should definitely bring back.

    For bars, I was thinking Planters House, iTap, and Venice Cafe. Anything I'm missing?

    For non beer stuff, was gonna do the Arch, City Museum, and Forest Park. Anything else I should do?

    I was planning on eating at Hi Pointe Drive in, Cugino's at Narrow Gauge, Southwest Diner, maybe a BBQ place (but I'm not a huge fan of bbq...really prefer places that have white bbq sauce - any recs?), Reed's American, and Ted Drewe's. Anything I'm missing that is a must or should take away?

    Was gonna get a bunch of bottles to go at Side they normally have limits on how many you can take? Also if anyone is down to split the cost and bottle of Derivation #10, Maltvin, and Tete, let me know!
