New Thing #49--Belly Up To The Bar
Tony and I went on a Leap Year's date tonight. It started badly because the restaurant we had chosen is now open just for lunch and not dinner. However, we found another place to eat, then went to the Art Museum to look in the galleries.
We are lucky in St. Louis because most of the cultural institutions have no admission. There were very few people in the museum, so we were able to see the art with no distractions. I particularly liked the Asian collection and the German Expressionist paintings.
Afterwards, we went to Fitz's American Grill and Bottling Works in the Delmar Loop and had root beer floats sitting at the bar. There is a great view of the kitchen from the barstools; it was funny to watch the cooks scurrying around as they assembled the orders. The floats and shakes are made at the bar, and that was even more fun to watch!
