you could tour the budweiser brewery. i refuse to drink bud, but the tour and history is interesting. also, the schlafly brewery tour is cool. both are free. if you're not against zoos, the zoo is also free.

Hey all!
I'm attending a conference in St Louis from April 7-12. I'm going to have a lot of free time on my hands. Please tell me the fun (cheap) places I need to go to! And more importantly, does anyone want to get together??

i'm trying to come up with more things to do in st. louis, too, specifically interesting places i can take pictures. any good parks, other than forest park? we'll have access to a car...
i'll be there in a few days, for a few days. i've been once before and went to the city museum and the botanical gardens... a little (okay, a lot) sad that it seems the 80 degree weather is going to come to an end before i get there...

as for food, my friend suggested the bar bleeding deacon--has that been mentioned? and i will definitely be trying sweet art as well as revisiting pi... mmm..

We went to Schlafly Bottleworks last night and had the hummus platter and pizza with vegan cheese. The hummus is worth eating, if for nothing other than the pita!

I had the hummus on Saturday. It is one of my fave places for hummus, I like it a bit chunky and rustic.

A really great blog post about eating vegan in St. Louis can be found here: http://vegansaurus.com/post/3236346092/ ... n-st-louis. It might be a bit outdated -- I think Foundation Grounds is closed now, unfortunately. You can also find some vegan restaurant tips on my blog here -- although the list is by no means all-inclusive: http://veganverite.wordpress.com/vegan- ... ant-guide/.

I went vegan when I was 16 in St. Louis and there were only a few really good places to go to for vegan food, as far as I knew. I went to college for four years, and now that I'm back, there's a TON of options. I'm so excited and happy about this change. :)

Is VegaDeli any good? Because if i'm basing a decision to eat there based on their website, they are horrible.

I didn't like it, and my husband didn't like it either, but that is only two of us. Someone must like it to keep it open.

Vegadeli was just bought and is now run by a new owner. I enjoy eating there, although I think that the food is a bit overpriced for what you are getting. The black bean burger is really good (I add avocado and cheese to it). The chunky monkey smoothie is really delicious, too. The vegan mac n cheese is really good (and my omnivore mother approves), although I think it is mostly earth balance. I recently had a cupcake for free for my birthday, and it was tasty too! I don't live near Chesterfield at all, so I rarely come to Vegadeli, just because it is a pretty long drive. But if I lived closer, I would definitely be in more often. I hope this helps!

Also, to correct myself from a previous post: Foundation Grounds in Maplewood is NOT closed, and they have vegan options in the bakery every day! A great place to grab a cup of coffee or lavender lemonade. Highly recommended.

I feel bad for starting this thread and then not keeping up with it.

I have another recommendation: Bahn Mi So on South Grand. The Mungbean spring rolls are really, REALLY forking good. I also get the Joe B sandwich, though I have also had a faux chicken rice dish that was great.

Hey np! It's a bit south of the South Grand neighborhood area (with all the cool restaurants and shops). I used to live right there. I hop to again at some point :)

It's time for my twice-yearly St. Louis shopping trip! Has anything new sprung up since July? Also, is there any cool dude store I can shoo Brian off to so I can spend an hour wandering around Whole Foods in Brentwood? I am always rushed because we have some place else to be, this time I want to really look at stuff.

Vegadeli was a bust for us. I didn't expect the food to be cheap, but $6 for a single waffle that comes with not even fruit or a tiny side? I told Brian I would've been more comfortable paying a little extra and getting a full meal. We didn't realize that Chesterfield was so far on the other side of the city (I just wrote addresses down and we plugged them in as we went), so we will probably not go back since we only go to St. Louis like twice a year. We also went to Black Bear Bakery because SweetArt is closed on Tuesdays and I heard they had lots of vegan baked goods...one cookie. Balls!

Mrsbadmouth, you should try Foundation Grounds in Maplewood. Lots of vegan baked goods. Local Harvest has good vegan options too. I recommend both over Vegadeli. The past few times I've gone I've been disappointed.

There's also Pi Pizza and PW Pizza. Both have vegan cheese.

Yeah, we went to Pi last time because we were going to a show across the street, this time I wanted to try a place that was at least all vegetarian. I feel like a dick for complaining about a vegan place, but really, they could do better with their menu. Since you can't find vegan breakfast items at chain restaurants, it's exciting, but one (regular sized) waffle for $6 is never going to do it for me. It's extra disappointing when it's supposed to be a special treat!

At least I have my Candy Cane Joe-Joe's to ease my pain!

The best restaurants with vegan options tend to be in the south Grand neighborhood -- Meskerem, Lemongrass, the Vine, Natasha's (awesome falafel), Mokabe's (best burger in St Louis -- get the black bean burger), and if you drive south of there a bit you will find Bahn Mi So, which is a small and virtually unknown Vietnamese place that has AMAZING food. It's my favorite restaurant in the city.

I guess if you went by yourself, it would be hard to finish the veg meal alone :-) I'm in Columbia so I don't get to go much either, but if I were closer I'd eat there every day!

I'm headed to STL & then Columbia, MO this weekend. My Sister and I want to go out for a "fancy" dinner (we have some little black dresses that need to be enjoyed). Any good vegan/veg-friendly places in STL anyone can recommend?

Also, what are some good Columbia, MO veg-friendly spots?
