    Headed to a wedding up north and my dad said we can stay in STL overnight (he knows I'm a big Rams fan) if I really want to.

    He heard about the zoo, is it good and I heard it's free? True?

    Does the Ed have a pro shop? I kinda want to buy some gear. By that I mean a t-shirt haha. Oh and does it cost to park in the garage or is it better to park near the Arch and walk on over (if that's even possible lol). And does it cost anything to take a gander at the field? I hope camp is started by then so I can see that and give up the pro shop thing.

    We probably will stay in a motel outside of STL and drive everywhere.

    Last time I went to STL I was like 5 years old and thought the floating McDonald's was the greatest thing ever. So this time it's my turn to drive.

    Been years since I was in St.L but I still believe the zoo is free. Check their website. Unless you have to see the EJD I know there were Rams gear shops in shopping malls years ago and I'm sure any sports apparel shop will have a good selection of Rams gear in St.L.. I remember one in Crestwood Plaza. Again check the website or search. Rams practice facilities are in Earth City I believe. Have fun!

    Yep, the zoo's still free, and there's a lot to look at.

    Also, you might want to go see the Arch, pass through the Old Courthouse, go to the Veteran's Memorial, and absorb everything you can. Bring change for the parking meters, and lock the doors and hide your valuables when you get out of the car. I can't stress the latter thing enough. In Clayton, you could probably get away with that, but St. Louis is about as far from Clayton (society-wise) as it gets.

    Thanks guys. Yeah I saw the zoo's website, and $12 for parkin ain't that bad.

    The stadium isn't that big of a deal, I really want to see camp more.

    I don't think we'll be goin to the Arch (I still vividly remember it). Long lines. Very long lines. Unless things changed, IDK. I remember parkin down by the river tho.

    We'll see.

    When are you passing through? The dome doesn't have any kind of public access/tour so it's doubtful you'd be able to see the field.

    There is a proshop in the dome, but it is only open during games. Many of the local malls have some kind of STL sports gears stores.

    And the Zoo is fantastic...it is free and although you can pay to park at the zoo lot, you can also get away with parking on the street if you find a spot. There is a ton of other things to do around the zoo in Forest Park too.

    Well, it is. I used to work for a pizza place here in Florida when I was a kid, and the owners used to ship water in from New York to make the pizzas, and they were the best in the county. Pretty much forced a couple of competing places to close their doors. It's alllllllllllll in the water.

    Yeah New York is my fav. When I was like 10 I was in OKC and my dad ordered up some Noo Yawk pizza and gahhhh I still remember it.

    I just don't like the uber thin crusts that looks like you're eatin a tostada w/ tomato sauce and toppings.

    I have no idea what's in that water. Liquid gold is the result when it's used to make pizza though.

    I thought it was all a myth until I actually went to New York and tried it (not at a place like Sbarro's). Lombardi's. You wouldn't think there'd be much of a difference, but oh man there is. I absolutely refuse to eat anything like Domino's or Pizza Hut, or anything remotely like it. That place spoiled me for pizza, and the only places close to it are family-run Italian ristorantes that are few and far between.

    So shuttie.
