I had a great time with JT, as always. In a change of roles for us, she was the bad influence this trip. She convinced me to skip the banquet Thursday night and we went out for pizza (Imo's) and frozen custard (Ted Drewes). I didn't see much of St Louis other than that evening, but WOW! I know where I'm going if I ever go back. And that's despite being in line behind a couple with an abundance of body art, and behavior that begged for me to tell them to get a room. (Quickly followed by JT telling me of a nearby hotel with garages, so one could have a tryst without detection. The original "no-tell motel". They think of everything in St Louis, apparently.)
The pizza was good, but the custard? Holy moly. I have craved another chocolate banana concrete at least three times a day since we were there. Is there no frozen custard in Pittsburgh? And if I find some, what do I tell them in order to get something that approximates a concrete?
