A road trip and a weekend in St. Louis! Kris and I drove the 5-hour drive southwest of Chicago to spend the weekend in St. Louis. It was a fun trip and really warm weather for December – 70+ degrees each day! On the way down, we stopped in Lincoln, Illinois to see the world’s largest covered wagon. Haha. Yes, this WAS a destination spot.
Once we arrived to St. Louis, we had a fantastic dinner at a little farm-to-table restaurant. We were able to try duck prosciutto and lamb pate – so tasty! After dinner, we went to the famous Broadway Oyster Bar to catch some live music. The Oyster Bar was bumpin’ and it seemed to attract all sorts of folks. Very fun.
The next day, we spent most of the afternoon at the football game. The San Francisco 49ers were playing the St. Louis Rams. We had amazing seats, the game went into overtime, but the 49ers lost. Boooo!
The next morning, we headed back up north on I-55 to Chicago. Thanks for the good time, St. Louis!
