I was afraid someone was going to call me out for being an a-hole if I advised against the Landing :P Glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's nasty.

You're not alone. I constantly had to explain to people from Chicago that just because they've been to the Landing it doesn't mean they've seen what St. Louis has to offer. It's like visiting Chicago and only going to their ginormous tourist trap: Navy Pier

To the OP: Hope you had a great time!

Really? I don't think that any local would deny that the Landing should be avoided at all costs unless you want to...

A) Have tequila sucked out of your belly button
B) Suck tequila out of someone else's bellybutton

The Landing was great when I was in my early 20s and home from college. But once I got to be about 25 I realized that I was too old to go down there.

My gf used to work at Lumiere Place so I was often finding myself on the landing during the day and I'd like to add that the Landing is still a fun place to go BEFORE 11pm on the weekends. There are some good restaurants (drunken Fish, Morgan Street Brewery - surprisingly good food, among others). The dueling piano bar is fun too and not full of drunk 20yr olds.

Yeah plus there are some good festivals down on the Landing as well. I was at the Drunken Fish anniversary street party a month or two ago and it was pretty fun.

But I do agree that you should probably avoid it on late weekends.

Also the exact street intersections would be good since we know nothing about STL

Lincoln Park/Wrigleyville? So you're looking for all the chads and trixies. Thankfully very few of those types live in St. Louis city. Perhaps you should hang out in West County?

I think CWE and Lincoln Park are definitely in the same vein. And I've seen many a chad or trixie in both the Central West End and on Washington. I can't think of anything in West County that could be considered remotely close to Lincoln Park.

Agreed. While CWE isn't a giant Big 10/frat reunion quite like LP, there's plenty of Mizzou grads to give it the same feel.
