Thanks for the heads up. Right now I am in St. Louis at the Hilton. It is across the street from the Busch Stadium where the Cubs are playing the Cardinals in the NLDS. It is wall to wall people, drinking beer, milling around and having fun cheering or booing, often cursing. It is sheer bedlam! The traffic is impossible and the cops are out in force. Despite the crowds, it is so exciting to be here. We can see right into the stadium from our room. Hilton has a 360 Degree Cocktail lounge half inside, half outdoors 26 floors up and we watched a magnificent sunset while also seeing the game and the arch all lit up. This is a great start to our vacation.
