It's so sad that we get so excited when someone from the East Coast bothers to notice our humble little Gateway. Shouldn't they be excited to know that we look up to them, that they're as important to the little ol' Midwest as they think they are?
Sorry, that's an incredibly stupid question.
Anyway, the New York Times' Travel section has deigned to notice us once again in its "36 Hours" feature.
Among the recommended spots: the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, Cherokee Street (including Apop Records, the Mississippi Mud House and phd gallery), Franco, Pappy's Smokehouse, SweetArt, Citygarden, Local Harvest Cafe, the Royale, Winslow's Home and Fred's Six Feet Under at Iron Barley.
