Which puts it two spots behind Columbus, the capital of the great state of Ohio.
Does the local minor league baseball team have a “Go Back To South Carolina” Night and give away a one way ticket to SC? Didn’t think so.

We have a Go Back to Ohio night.

We don’t care for Oh-atians. You screw up our southern charm

Sounds pretty intolerant and probably why you're lower on the list.

That is cool. 10 years ago thrill posted that he moved and likes it. Full circle indeed.

Born in St. Ann, MO

Lived a few years in Ferguson, MO just two doors down from Paul's Market on Elizabeth.

From second grade until I was 21 I lived in Florissant, MO just a couple of blocks from Pirrone's

The only exception to my time in Florissant was 9 months in Ames, IA where I spent my freshman year at Iowa State before I realized that Iowa wasn't for me and came back to go to UMSL.

Lived at Downtown at Chestnut and 17th for about 3 years back when there were still bars and restaurants at Union Station.

Spent about 3 years in Kirkwood right at Big Bend and 270.

The next 7 years were by the airport in St. John, MO.

And since 2011 I have lived in the triangle between Botanical Gardens, Tower Grove Park and Vandeventer. I think I finally found the right area for me there.
