STL Tour Guide: A Summer Saturday in South City

Last weekend was one of those freak summer weekends in St. Louis - weather only in the 80s, with a nice breeze and, most importantly, we had nothing on the calendar.

We slept in, had breakfast at home, and then had a little STL adventure running errands and stopping at a few of our favorite spots in the city. So I thought I'd share our day here, as the first in a hopefully continuing series - 'STL Tour Guide.'
10:00am Tower Grove Farmer's Market. We hit up the market for veggies, fruit, cheese, meat, and bread from Companion Bakery. There's always a couple food trucks there (my favorite being Holy Crepe) and a grilled cheese sandwich stand, too. We got an iced tea (for Joe) and a fresh lemonade (for me), kicked off our sandals and waded in the fountains. Not a bad way to cool off.
12:00pm Mokabe's for lunch on the patio. My choice is always the chicken salad on a croissant and a fresh strawberry lemonade.

1:00pm Paul's Bait & Tackle for supplies for an afternoon of fishing. Don't forget cash to buy your fishing license ;)

1:30pm G&W Sausage. We stopped in for some brats, and left with about five different kinds, oops. And some beef jerky to snack on while we were fishing. The lines are long on Saturdays, but the staff is friendly and you get a Busch for waiting in line. Not a bad deal, if you ask me.
3:30pm Fishing at Jefferson Lake at Forest Park. We packed a cooler of some waters, Schlafly Summer Lagers and our jerky from G&W and made our way to Forest Park for an afternoon of fishing. I don't know much about the rules there (I leave that for Joe...), but we heard that they stock the lake at the beginning of the month, so if you're going to go that's probably the time to do it. We didn't catch a single fish all afternoon.
