I've accepted my dream job, and now I'm moving to St. Louis. For those of you who are familiar with the city, what are some good places for food and good cigar shops?

    Congratulations!  I know nothing about St. Louis except that I enjoyed the Zoo and Museum very much, and the streets on the ground don't necessarily line up with the ones on the map.  Or in the GPS.  But, after driving for an hour, I did find myself back where I'd started.

    There are good places to eat all over the metro. The Hill, downtown, Soulard, Clayton for the fancy types lol. I can go on and on. As far as cigar shops... Gran Cru in Soulard, The Hill Cigar company, there are a couple in Clayton, Rackhouse in Cottleville, there are several others as well. Just depends on where you are going.

    No, I don't know yet. The company I'll be with have hired some consultants for me to help with the move.. I'll be working downtown around market street. I'd like to live down there too so I can walk to work, but the apartments there seem a bit small...

    I almost moved to Clayton for a Private Equity job.... It's a nice area there from what I recall..

    I'm definitely going to need a new Friday hangout. as one of those locations.

    Reminds me of the drunken man theory which states that if a drunk starts out from a lamp post and takes a random number of steps in a random number of directions he’ll eventually end up back at the lamp post where he started. 

    Sounds like fun.....  😜

    If you are looking downtown you will find a lot of loft style unless you go a bit further out such as Midtown and South City. There are plenty of places to look. Soulard is another are that may interest you but you wouldn’t be waking to work. Is fairly close though. They will be opening up ballpark village lofts soon. Probably pricey but a fantastic location.

    My brother in law also just moved to St. Louis, he took advice and did not get screwed on a house.  I was actually proud of the kid, he did good.  Any way I'll ask him if he's had a chance to get out where the spots are.  Mark is a wealth of information though, second thought just keep getting advice from Mark.

    Michael is correct, but I did drink beer out of the bottle last night rather than use the flimsy plastic hotel cups.
