eyeball - i could live here a hiundred years and never figure this place out. it's a very complex and dark city. that's what i LIKE about it. what i don't about it is the bad food and provincial arrogant yokels like you. but then every city has idiots that just defend everything because it's theirs.
you actually pau attention to anything the rft sez? granted rene and paul are good, but the editorial stance of that rag makes me choke - ahhhh, but i bet you think it's liberal, right? so, being a college kid, you read it religiously and actually think having an article in it is a big deal, right? i think you need to travel a bit more and find out what other places are like, and then you can see this town a tad more clear-eyed, eyeball. your not only and idiot, yer blind. a gibbering blind idiot. who thinks he's godly. lovecrafian...
poncy-ponce - PROFESSIONAL REASONS???? make me laugh, bigtimer! what a maroon! and besides, you think that if mom's cooking sucked, that it's still good because it's mom's cooking and that's what you were raised on. time to try something new, laddie...
bigdumb - stl bread co is only medium (and their scones are terrible). but the black thorn dos have some righteous deep pizza - not on par with yer average chicago joint, but damn tasy all the same. and them toasted ravioli are not too good. (you were with me when i tried them. were those GOOD ravioli?) and the chicken at the shenandoah still kicks butt - wanna take you there for yer opinion.
sarge - most of the white folk out in the counties think i LIVE in the 'ghetto'. they're literally afraid to come down this way because the black folk will eat them. it's riduclous. in the north end (the REAL 'ghetto' - if such a thing really exists) the cultural and physical devastation is astonishing to see. parts of it look like someone dropped a nuetron bomb on it. it's amazing. and the truth is that it is so fucked in the north end that there are no quaint little ma and pa soul foo' black folk making pie for the hommies. the truth is that they are fucking starving to death and nobody pays them any mind. in fact most of st. louis would just as soon bulldoze it and all them black folk along with it.
i know this sounds silly, but i dare anyone who has lived here to tell me otherwise.
yup, you're right there, sarge! only in stl would deep-fried ravioli be considered a local delicacy. i've also found the best fried chicken i've ever had (at a local tavern, no less). also, slingers (hash browns topped with eggs and burger patty slopped over with savory canned chili and cheese) (onions optional) and other sundry heart-attack food. everybody here is fat.
