Another Investigator and I are attending a Death Investigation school at the medical college there all next week, the 22nd through the 28th.

Any particularly cool sights, gun shops, "Mature" entertainment ;), etc. we should try to catch?

Thanks much!

I grew-up there.  Most of the adult entertainment is on the east side. Try PT's or Diamonds.  One adimission will get you into both places.  Be carefull and area is rough and the local LEO are ALWAYS watching for DUIs.  If you are downtown try Lacledes (sp) Landing. Its a nightclub and restaurant district north of the Arch. If you like Thai food the best is the King and I on Grand Blvd. south of I-44.

BTW who do you work for??

I live a few hundred miles away go to a Cardinal game you won't regret it.  The brewery tour is also a blast.

Of course you could also take cal school.  It's called "Bull's Eye".  I think I've got the phone number - email me if you the Anheause-Busch tour.  How many chances do you have to see the world's largest brewery?

There are free samples at the end!

The zoo is great and the statue of St. Louis himself in front of the art museum is a great peice of work.  Last time I was at the museum there was a display of Knight's Armor.

Thanks! We are taking a dept Crown Vic so we should shy away from the really rough areas I guess... I'd hate for the squad to get vandalized...

We're staying at The Station or some such, Union Station maybe? Supposed to be a real hub and a 5 star type place with many restaurants  and bars and such. I hear all is a short cab ride away though...?

I work for a mid-sized Sheriff's Department in South Alabama. We get mucho top notch training. Gonna be a looooong drive...

Thanks again!

Sweet! Made my last post after only the first reply...

So; see a game, hit the clubs, give $s to dancers, see the Zoo (I enjoy ALL wildlife!), get free beer at the Brewery and maybe rent a MP5??? That sounds like a week's worth! Have to go to the top of the Arch as well, eh? I would be hip with checking out a museum but my partner is not as cultured as I am... Ha!

I've never been that far North in my life (sad eh?) so I am really looking forward to it!

BTW, what kind of weather should we expect?

Thanks a bunch guys!

a range in Belleville, IL has an UZI for rent.  the FA kind, of course.

definitely catch some blues while you're in St Louis.  "BB's" has jazz or blues every night.  Soulard area has some blues clubs, too.

check out:

There is a great old gunstore in Milstadt IL. "Maserang's Store"

Yep, you can shoot full auto, or your own guns at the Belleville,IL indoor range.
Lots of good food in the St.Louis area.
Have fun

There are several good places to eat at Union Station.  They even have a Hooters.  You should take a cab over to the east side. They also have two or three casinos if you enjoy gambling.

Thanks for all of the advice, Gents! Sounds like a great city! Looking forward to it...

If the weather is that unpredictable I guess I will be packing like my wife!
