What does everyone want to do?greenspun.com : LUSENET : No Kidding! St. Louis Chapter : One Thread
I thought this might be a good question to kick off our Q&A forum. Anyone who will be attending the St. Louis get-togethers, let me know, say, your top 1 or 2 things you'd like to see us do in the first six months. Museums? Hiking (could be a challenge depending on the weather)? Restaurants (there's a great Indian restaurant very convenient to HWY 70; there's an Ethopian restaurant on the Loop, etc.)?
I'll start off, I guess. I think it would be fun to go hiking whatever the weather (unless it's raining or a blizzard). If it was cold, we could just bundle up and take a relatively short hike. If it's even partly sunny, winter in the woods can be quite beautiful (and we'll probably have the area to ourselves). Then off to dinner? I personally haven't been to KC Masterpiece in a long, LONG time. But I think we ought to pick a restaurant not too far from wherever we hike. Those who didn't want to hike could meet us at the restaurant.
Now, someone else?

Restaurants in general are a good start. It's at least an activity where people can talk during the meal if they want, or if they are shy, bored, or unable to think of anything to say, they can just eat. We are relatively new to this area & have yet to find a good sushi restaurant (anyone have a lead for us?) My husband & I enjoy movies, especially comedies, action/adventure & sci-fi. Movies, however, restrict conversation and may not be the best activity to start with for a new group. Hiking sounds like fun. Fresh air, exercise, and one can talk during it. Another activity that might be a good one for the summer - float trips down a river for a day. Those are my thoughts on the topic. Anyone else?

We enjoy wine tastings and just getting together with others for stimulating conversation and laughter. We would love to hold a wine tasting at our home, and for those who do not drink wine, we'll have many other beverages. I also enjoy holding tea parties for the ladies and John loves a good round of golf. We also love art galleries and funky,cool hangouts. If any of this sounds like fun, please contact us and let's make plans!!

You all fuck'in suck. Even your stupid food. You can't cook for shit. You sould quit the food buisness right now. Because you would save a lot of non-dead people. Your fuck'in food stinks and I wanted to throw up, well I did. You are also fuck'in ugly. You look like a penis with a little hat on. And by the way you sould lose a little weight, if I was you.
Your all FUCK'IN ASSHOLES! SUCK A FATTIE BITCHS!

How about putting together a progressive dinner where you go from house to house and that house hosts a portion of a meal, e.g. drinks and appetizers, then salads/soups, then the entree, and finally dessert/coffee.
I love to cook, but we don't get the opportuntity to entertain very often because we don't have a child-friendly house and would just be nervous the entire time they were there anyway.
