St Louis Bound, Day 1
St. Louis Bound.
At least it has warmed up some; we started the day at 7 deg. We left home about 1 pm headed for St Louis, 7 miles down the road I realize that my PC that I was going to drop off at my IC friend’s house to work on is in the back seat of the Jeep so back we go, drop it off and back on the road again.
After we get check in at the St Louis Airport Marriott it is time to head for the bar.
Donna says that vacation really starts with the first drink, and she starts with an orange martini.
We really like staying at this Marriott, besides being just across I-70 & having a 24 hour shuttle to the airport they have a great restaurant / bar. Their park / stay / fly rate is $99 for 8 days parking & room which is $20 to $30 more than the cheapest park and fly but a much nicer place. I also like the fact that I will not have to drive anywhere so a second Beefeater Martini is ordered.
Another plus is that their shuttle will also take you to 3 other restaurants close by. Las Palmas Mexican (not for this trip), Bandana BBQ or Lombardo’s Italian / American. (
The last of the three being our choice.
After a great salad I have one of my favorites, Calf’s Liver with Bacon and it was very good.
Donna’s Chicken Lucciano
They came with a side of pasta in a wonderful creamy garlic sauce.
And, of course I had to get a little dessert to go. They have fantastic Tiramisu.
