It’s been a while since I’ve ventured around St. Louis! Thankfully that was remedied last weekend when a couple of adventurous buddies and I visited a graffiti wall down by the Gateway Arch. Plenty of talented graffiti artists have made their mark (and unfortunately plenty of non-talents have too) on the mile-long flood wall by the riverfront. In fact, it’s the only legal place to graffiti in St. Louis! We didn’t walk the entire mile (2 miles?), but even then, I scored plenty of colorful photos. Anyone who likes art would appreciate this place:
In all my four years of schooling, I’ve only stepped into the Kemper Art Museum on campus twice. First was when the WǑMEN (我们): CONTEMPORARY CHINESE ART exhibit came along two years ago. More recently, several pieces from the museum’s vault were temporarily on display to the public (hence, vault party). Fun fact I learned from my friend Masha: most museums only display 10% of their entire collection. 10%! Doesn’t that make you feel a little cheated? Better look at them while I can…

I planned to document my first time dining at St. Louis’s famous Blueberry Hill restaurant last weekend. But once I got there, I thought, forget that.

So I didn’t take as many photos as I planned to for a full restaurant post, but here’s a few snaps that bring back good memories:
We luckily snagged an open dart board after dinner. Bull’s eye!!
