I lived in St. Louis for thirteen years. Great place to eat primal, with all the farmers markets and farms just outside the city! Though I love California, I do wish sometimes I lived closer to a nice farmer willing to sell me some meat.
And Tower Grove is lovely! One of my favorite parks in the city. I used to drive over to the Forest Park area to go to aikido. Many fond memories of me and the guy walking through both of those parks!
