Checked out the winners of Food Networks Food Feuds St Louis. They were 17th Street BBQ for ribs and Park Avenue Coffee for Gooey Butter Cake. We think Michael Simon was correct on Park Avenue Coffee but wrong on 17th Street. Pappy's Smokehouse Ribs that we tried earlier in the week were just a tad better. Park Avenue Coffee did deliver a superior Gooey Butter Cake though.
Then off to Alton IL to see the statue of Robert Wadlow, their Gentleman Giant. He held the record of the World's Tallest Man...8'11"
tall and weighing in at 490 pounds. After taking that pic, it was travel up the Great River Road to Grafton IL stopping to view the legendary Piasa Bird along the way.
On the way home, we stopped at St Louis landmark and award winning Crown Candy Kitchen for supper. Their ice cream is out of this world good. Taking Friday off to see a movie...then on the road again Saturday.
