    I have never had frozen custard – I'm guessing it's like very dense ice-cream??

  2. Honeyed Lips says:

    OMG. I can almost taste it…

  3. Kimmers says:

    Holy crap that sounds good!

  4. Yum…. I want some!!

  5. LBeeeze says:

    It was yummy!!! There were hundreds of people there, but they waited on people very quickly.

  6. LBeeeze says:

    I guess you could say that. The custard part was okay, but I really wanted the brownie at the bottom.

  7. LBeeeze says:

    The custard was fine, but the special peeps in attendance were the real treat.

  8. LBeeeze says:

    The custard was good, but the special peeps in attendance were the real treat. A fine evening was had by all.

  9. LBeeeze says:

    Ted Drewes is a St. Louis institution. There were hundreds of people there, but the crowd was so well behaved and you wouldn't believe how fast the Ted Drewes people served up the orders.

  10. e2c says:

    ooh, I want a mint chocolate Concrete right now!!! and I'm thousands of miles from Ted Drewes… 😦

  11. e2c says:

    do they sill sell Christmas trees?

  12. LBeeeze says:

    It's amazing how many people they waited on in what seemed like no time at all. There were all ages in the crowd…..hundreds of people, and so many goodies on the menu. Very yummy stuff!!!

  13. LBeeeze says:

    How did you know??!!!!

  14. e2c says:

    how did I know? Locals told me. 🙂

  15. LBeeeze says:

    Earlier that evening we went to this awesome park, only a few minutes from Ted Drewes. I'd never been there before. It was such a beautiful evening, and the park was just magic!

  16. e2c says:

    not really. i did some work in St. Louis back in 1990 and 1991, mostly at the MO Historical Society. Folks there know a *lot* about the city, as I'm sure you can imagine. And they were all addicted to Ted Drewes' stuff, making regular "runs" out there for fixes.

  17. e2c says:

    what's the name of the park?

  18. LBeeeze says:

    I bet the work with the Historical Society was lots of fun. Yeah, I've heard folks do get addicted to Ted Drewes. I enjoyed the crowd. Lots of interesting people hanging out, eating yummies and having fun. Very cool.

  19. LBeeeze says:

    Francis Park. The pics on the website don't do it justice at all. There were lots and lots of really cool sculptures. It's really huge and very pretty.

  20. e2c says:

    believe it or not, the work was pretty dull – mostly going through storage rooms to see if there were any paintings or sculptures that should be documented for the archive I was working for at the time.

  21. LBeeeze says:

    Except for dusty storage rooms that sounds very interesting.

  22. e2c says:

    i was in the storage rooms 6-7 hours a day, or at least, it felt that way!

  23. LBeeeze says:

    I know it's not glamorous, but I love doing research and figuring things out. I bet there's all sorts of neat stuff stored all over the city….especially in the really old buildings.

  24. e2c says:

    so do i, but even I have to admit that this particular project was pretty boring. 😉

  25. LBeeeze says:

    Well, you know….we mid western people can be pretty boring.

  26. e2c says:

    oh, it had nothing to do with that – it was more about what I was supposed to be doing, and what was in the collection.

  27. LBeeeze says:

    Oh, I was only teasing. It still sounds very interesting to me. : – )

  28. e2c says:

    i figured, but text-only can make it hard to be sure…!

  29. e2c says:

    not that 90% of what Wash. U. owns "worked" for the job I was doing, either, but it was fascinating all the same.

  30. LBeeeze says:

    Incredible. I'm sure there's all sorts of very impressive works stored here there and everywhere….Many in private collections of course, but I'm sure many have been somewhat forgotten.

  31. LBeeeze says:

    It sounds like you were looking for something very specific for your job, but I'm sure the findings were incredibly fascinating. I think it would have been so cool to see some of that stuff!!!

  32. e2c says:

    not at the MO Hist. Soc.

  33. LBeeeze says:

    I'm sure it did get depressing. It would be great if you got to come back here….please be sure and let me know!!

  34. e2c says:

    gosh, i haven't been out your way in 19 years (since I made that series of trips), but if/when I do, I'll be sure to let you know!

  35. LBeeeze says:

    Please do!! The restaurant is still there, but it has another name. I'm not sure if the owners are the same or not.

  36. e2c says:

    i wasn't *that* crazy about their food (I'd had lots better versions of the same menu in the D.C. area), but it was decent, reasonably inexpensive and made me feel a bit less homesick. (I'll be honest – I wasn't crazy about the area, though part of that was likely because nobody where I worked knew anything about the city and I ended up staying in a hotel downtown for 2 weeks. My 2nd stay was better, partly due to my location, but equally long.)

  37. e2c says:

    i mean – some of the portraits I actually *did* have to record at the MO Hist. Soc. were of (hang onto your hat) Veiled Prophet princesses (or is it queens) from the 1920s and 30s. They were clearly from society families, and they were *not* good paintings, but…

  38. e2c says:

    oops – meant that the VP gals were clearly from society families. maybe some of the portraitists were, too!

  39. LBeeeze says:

    They still have the VP Parade, but they no longer call the 4th of July Celebration the VP Fair. It's called "Fair St. Louis." For sure, anyone "VP" is from a society family. I don't doubt that some of the portraitists were also!! Too funny!!

  40. e2c says:

    I'm glad they deleted "VP" from the 4th, if only because it strikes me (VP) as condescending – "We won't let you come to the dance, but you *can* go to this instead." (And so on…)
