Sad News

Both the Pitted Olive, and The Juniper Grill have closed their doors.

The Pitted Olive was a great little spot on Hampton in Saint Louis Hills, and The Juniper Grill was in Soulard. Both were fantastic restaurants, and the state of the economy has apparently taken its toll on them.

I am going to miss the Pitted Olive's Reuben!

Naming the Trains?

With the opening of the new downtown transportation center here and some planned rail and signal improvements across the state, Amtrak and the Missouri Department of Transportation are looking for some new names for the trains that run a couple of times a day between St. Louis and Kansas City. The trains are currently called "The Ann Rutledge" and the "Missouri Mules." The new name for the passenger train service will be selected in a multi-part statewide contest.

Can you think of some apt names? If so, you can submit them here.
