Cool STL List

Since we're in the middle of cold snap, why not go with it...and have some fun thinking of all the cool things about St. Louis. St. Louis makes it on a lot of lists, but I bet if the list makers ranked places by how many cool spots they have, STL would rate pretty high. We all have different ideas about what's cool, so add your ideas to the list. When it's done, we'll permanent link it as a resource directory for anyone looking for the cool side of the STL.

"Is "The Grove" cool already?" I don't know; I've never been.

What makes something cool? When is it no longer?

What about Washington Avenue?

The Mayor's office conference room. If you haven't seen it, it's totally cool. They should give tours.

Caves under Benton Park and the Lemp Brewery.
