^I'd guess because LHM feels like they're a good fit, but HRC wasn't. And as to the fish at an aquarium objection I don't really buy it. The zoo sells all manner of food, including plenty of beef and pork even though there's quite obviously similar species on display. I can see myself hankering for ...
As has been said before, there's a world of potential there if you can find the resources to do it. And there's a world of need. It's the logical eastward extension of the "spine," though obviously vital infrastructure works against connection to some degree. (Which has always been the curse of the ...
“It was a wonderful building, at one time,” Kern said. “And I think developers have a lot of good ideas — until they stand on the ground floor and look up and see the top floor.”
That's . . . kind of telling. :(
10.) Extend invitations to area counties and munis to join the Zoo-Museum district. Charge reasonable admission fees to those who don't. $10 for adults $5 for kids. 11.) Point and laugh at St. Charles when they build their own "safe" POS zoo in response to #11. I like most of those. But I'd be leer...
^Nice shot, Quincunx!
That could be a good fit. Is the Planet Hollywood gone? Alternately something on Washington to put them near the Blues museum. Add some crossover.
^Or perhaps in place of the former Penny's?
^I'm pretty sure this has been proposed off and on in some variation since the thirties. You can see hints of it in the water fights in Chinatown. (And yes, it's a movie. But the spats over water rights are real enough.)

That neighborhood is literally awash in parking. If there's a historic review . . . oh please no. No.
NFL never blocked out six months. There were, what, fifteen home games? And maybe a day blocked out on each side to reset. At most maybe they blocked out a month and a half. But if you had a home game every two weeks it limited the number of large blocks of time available. And There are only 3 event...
Oh, the NFL is absolutely a juggernaut, but things change. Tastes. Perceptions. For much of the first half of the twentieth century I understand that the big three exhibition sports in the United States were baseball, boxing, and horse racing. The list looks a bit different these days. And fifty yea...
It's almost as though his wife has a role in the current Administration. Not too hard to connect the dots with the current hang-up on trying to trash the NFL right before the launch of the XFL 2.0. Still mad about the failure of USFL + percieved sleights from current NFLers + "friend" launching his...
I don't see any reason XFL and other events couldn't coexist at least as well as NFL and other events. The dome has never been dedicated exclusively to a sport. It's hosted exhibition sports, events, conventions . . . car shows, boat shows, even a model railroad show once. (The NMRA national convent...

When did SLU buy Centene?
Nice one! Yes! XD
We went back and forth— 'They are!' :x 'No, they're not.' :) 'They are!!!' :evil: 'Nope.' :) 'THEY ARE!!!' :evil: :evil: :evil: :roll: Okay, it wasn't like that but I though we was full of crap. I guess he was right. Hopefully. Are you sure that wasn't a conversation we had about logos? :D I hope y...
I'd bet the Asian grocers would see a significant hit from Costco. Not necessarily debilitating but detectable. All my Asian friends seem in love with Costco. And to rub salt in the wound, Costco would be getting tax support that they would not, while needing it less and moving more money out of the...
The building on the lot immediately behind the elevated line and next to the bridge was a TRRA commuter station that I believe even served both the Eads Line and the High Line. (Could have served the wharf line as well, but I doubt there was ever commuter service there.) Best as I can tell it was go...
^Most of the attractions were barges, moored almost permanently in place. The regulations for that are quite different. Then as now the only things that cruised were the Becky Thatcher and Tom Sawyer. The restaurants were on barges. Even the Goldenrod was, essentially, on a barge. Further, maybe hal...
Little story on NextStL my cousin pointed out to me: Kranzberg Arts Foundation Secures Option to Create Artist Housing in Gravois Park . The nutshell version: They've secured a couple dozen properties from LRA, about half with structures and half without, and plan to restore and fill in to create af...
^Oh, I can definitely see the draw. But if you've got miles on a legacy it's a harder sell. Even so, I tried Southwest just for sheer giggles. Wasn't even really that much cheaper. (A little, but not hugely.) I very well might try WOW. But I can easily see reasons why you might not. Everything you s...

^The experience you describe is precisely the opposite of what I saw. Entirely. Mind you, some of this might be perspective. I've been going there my entire life. Most recently I was there of a Wednesday evening just walking around and went back the next Thursday morning for the tour. We bought tick...
I'm kind of halfway contemplating Wow just to show support, but . . . you get no miles for that. And even now, truncated as frequent flyer programs are, that makes a difference.
^I don't know that converting the business community to Wow would be necessary to land better traditional transatlantic service. Wow doesn't really offer any advantage save price over what's already there. Both are one stops and the difference between a one stop direct and a single quick connections...
^Might be a style choice as much as anything. Not everyone wants a single family detached with everything that goes with it: yardwork, tuckpointing, carrying crap up and down stairs all the time. Some folks want a nice loft. No yard. No outside maintenance. You can walk to your neighbors in the comf...
