You choose to go for a stroll in the gorgeous Missouri Botanical Garden.
A true gem located in the heart of the city's Shaw neighborhood, the Missouri Botanical Garden (4344 Shaw Boulevard, 314-577-5100) offers 79 acres of horticulture, with gardens influenced by Japan, China and more. It's way too hot for the Climatron, but its tropical rainforest (and spectacular waterfall) still beckons. You're good and sweaty by the time you finish your walk and head back to your car.
As you approach, you can't help but notice that your tags expired more than a month ago — and there's a St. Louis cop pulling up in his cruiser. Oh no! Could you be about to get ticketed? What to do?
Dude, this is St. Louis. The cops don't care about expired tags. If you smile at the cop and head off to Pappy's for some barbecue, turn to page 18.
Dude, seriously. The cops have better things to do, but that doesn't mean you're going to make nice. If you ignore the officer and make your way to the Royale, turn to page 15.
