Am I alone in my bitterness toward A-B InBev? I grew up in St. Louis, and currently live here. I remember the hostile takeover of A-B by InBev, and the layoffs, cost-cutting, and basic gutting of the once amazing downtown brewery.
I'm not trying to be a downer. And I certainly don't fault anyone for enjoying an A-B InBev product: free beer is free beer. It was just a crappy time for St. Louis pride, something that is in very short supply these days.
On a more positive note, the excitement a lot of you guys show toward the city and the school is heartening! I'm pretty committed to this place, long-term, so it always feels good to see young professionals (or aspiring professionals) talking about living and working here. The 2010 census was not good to us....
I hope all of you visitors to the city liked what you saw during ASD. The Wash U campus really is something, and Forest Park truly is the gem of the city. There are, of course, quite a lot of other attractions in the city. If anyone ends up attending, PM me if you need or want any information about housing, entertainment, work, etc. I can direct you to such things as $5 movie tickets in a theater full of couches and beer, and decent studio apartments near campus for $450 with utilities included.
