Summer in St. Louis: Have an Adventure 

Page 6 of 45

You choose to head to the Loop to pick up some new literature at Subterranean Books, you sophisticated brainiac.

One of the city's great independent bookstores, Subterranean Books (6275 Delmar Boulevard, University City; 314-862-6100) offers a perfectly curated selection of buzzy bestsellers and literary favorites behind glass windows facing the Loop's street parade. You duck inside for a good children's book or that collection of music criticism — they specialize in both. You also pet Teddy, the shop dog and rising social media star.

But oh no! Upon leaving you accidentally make eye contact with a busker wheezing away on a brass instrument, cap overturned for your consideration. You have a conscience, but Judas himself would leap onto a cross if it meant getting away from this needy trumpeter's toots. How are you going to get out of this one?

If you grudgingly throw some change at King Tootenkamen while fleeing in search of a peaceful meal, turn to page 13.

If you choose to beat a hasty retreat by hopping on the nearest trolley, turn to page 14.
