Summer in St. Louis: Have an Adventure 

Page 4 of 45

You choose to celebrate this summer day in true St. Louis fashion: day drinking! After slamming a couple of shots at home you head out for bloody marys at Southwest Diner.

With a vibe straight out of Arizona and terrifically spicy selections, Southwest Diner (6803 Southwest Avenue, 314-260-7244) is almost always packed during brunch hours. The good news: There's a waiting room for that, and it's an adorable refurbished school bus. Chilling out in one of its banquettes, you could enjoy a coffee. But why not instead suck down a bloody mary (or several)? Served with a salted rim, they bring the heat ... and the booze buzz. Ahh, summer bliss!

All that vodka has enlivened your senses and bamboozled your brains — a feeling that reminds you of one of St. Louis' most beloved institutions. If you choose to have some drunken daytime fun at the City Museum, turn to page 10.

Those salted rims left you mighty thirsty — or maybe you're just really feeling the day-drinking thing today? If you choose to head to Hammerstone's to keep the good times rolling with a few pints, turn to page 11.
