Chitown is determined to get on my nerves, that's all he is doing. he wants to get this forum against me because he doesn't have anything better to do. TorchwoodChi and Chitownwarrior being Chicagoans cannot accept St. Louis being Midwestern. If St. Louis isn't Midwestern, neither is Cincinnati, nor is Indy or Kansas City. You all need to wake up and smell the coffee...a Southern characteristic does not make a city Southern. St. Louis' industry, demographics, speech patterns, political leniencies, architecture, overall history, are that of a Midwestern city. END OF DISCUSSION!!! If you want to argue with the facts go ahead, I'm not going to waste my time on people who think their opinons override the facts, just like chitown who believes that the same trees grow in the Arkansas Ozarks as the Missouri Ozarks...the Ozark chinapin trees are found exclusively in Arkansas and no further north than Branson, Missouri. I'd rather complain and whine like a baby then be like chitown and go with his stereotypical instincts and primitive knowledge. All three of you can take me on. Send a friggin' army. Better yet, go to the discussion about "St. Louis...Southern or Midwestern?" Locals decided on it being midwestern by an overwhelming majority. There is my defense. You all can take it up with them. Maybe CHitown is just a sore loser. Locals know this city better than outsiders. Plain and simple. It should also be noted that every city has their own style of barbeque. Google it and watch the magic happen. Complainer, no? A fact-giver? 100%.

Gee! What happened to that southern hospitality St. Louis is famous for?

I don't know, because I've never heard people talk about St. Louis' southern hospitality around here, nor have I read any source talking about it having that. Half of my family is from Louisiana, and I can assure you that there is no Southern hospitality in St. Louis. There is not even a near-to-identical idea of political values, attitudes, social values, food/culture. Maybe in Chicago people think that because they are uninformed, not too surprising Half the people I meet here from Chicago have half of the facts wrong. You want Southern hospitality? Go to Paducah, Kentucky, and then come back to St. Louis and tell me that the attitudes, restaurants, and culture are identical. Then I'll believe there is Southern hospitality here Anybody who believes that St. Louis has Southern hospitality either has not been to the South or does not know the meaning of Southern hospitality.

Look if St. Louis wants to be apart of the Midwest I supposed that's fine. Since, according to you, all of the city's inhabitants have already convinced themselves that they are. I mean, If we can live with Indianapolis(which has absolutely nothing to offer the world) being part of the Midwest, we should welcome St. Louis with open arms.

I think St. Louis is pretty friendly, but probably not like southern hospitality.

Although sometimes southern hospitality only exists for certain groups.

Also, there are 2 Tennessee towns on the west side of the Mississippi (Arkansas). The 1811 and 1812 earthquakes changed the course of the river.

Chicago is not the best city in the world or even country so stop acting like you can tell people who the are!!!!! I'm not a redneck farmer from the Corn Town of Omaha. St. Louis is about as far north as Kansas city which you probably dont consider southern?? or is everything south of your 'precious' Chicago southern to you? Also dont insult Indianapolis its a nice city and for the final time St. Louis is NOT A SOUTHERN CITY get that through your arogant chicagan heads. Or are us nebraskans to redneck of farmers to listen to because you live in the holy city of Chicago????!!!! NEVER INSULT MY St. Louis BROTHERS!!!!!!!!

We're a part of the Midwest, whether you want us to be or not or whether we want us to be or not. That's the simple fact of the matter. You think I'm the only one that says St. Louis is part of the Midwest? Look up practically every source concerning it. You should find it is in the Midwest. But you're from Chicago, so I know you won't.

Whoa dude. Chill out. St. Louis is a pretty midwestern town....but it's definitely got a serious southern vibe going. Like it or not...Missouri and St. Louis in particular do share a lot of similarities with more southern states. And it's not a bad thing, either. St. Louis' great hospitality is due to its southern roots.

I don't think St. Louis has any Southern vibes to it whatsoever. Southern Missouri definitely does some serious Southern vibes to it, that I will agree to.
