If you ask any WashU student for a recommendation of restaurants on the Loop, odds are very high they will say Mission Taco.
A campus favorite for sure! Corner 17 has an incredibly large menu with plenty of options bound to appeal to everyone.
Thai Country Café
Thai Country Café is a hidden gem!
Salt + Smoke
Salt + Smoke will provide a Midwest experience like no other.
Taking the Metro: Best stops for the best sights
I’ve had an amazing time traveling around the city using the Metro, which is free for WashU students. I loved getting to see the city that way! Here are some of my favorite spots in St. Louis that fall right on the Metro line.
Exploring St. Louis: My Union Station Adventure
Having to return home for the rest of the semester, I’m thinking a lot about how much I miss St. Louis. Still, this time to reflect has made me so excited to continue to explore the city when I return to campus. One of my favorite spots that I explored this year was Union Station, which just opened recently.
My favorite time of the year most definitely has to be in between Thanksgiving and New years. This may be a common thing a lot of people say, however I don’t mind agreeing! I love this time of the year so much because of all the joy and happiness that is spread from one another. […]
Korean-Mexican Fusion? Surprisingly Good!
A few weekends ago, my friends and I decided to get dinner at Seoul Taco on the Delmar Loop. We had heard many people rave about it, so we thought we’d go and see if it lived up to its reputation.
St. Louis Saturdays: St. Louis Balloon Glow!
Welcome to St. Louis Saturdays! This is going to be a series on my page detailing my experiences at different events and places (restaurants, landmarks, etc.) around St. Louis. To be clear, there will be posts about events on other days, but because I love alliteration, I chose ‘Saturday’ for the name.
Explore STL! Ways To Get Off Campus
With so much happening on campus, it can be hard to make time to step out of the WashU bubble. But it’s worth it. Whether you come from a big city or tiny, remote town, St. Louis has everything you could want. Here are some fun ways I’ve gotten off-campus this year.
Community time! The Japanese Festival
The beautiful St. Louis Botanical Garden hosts the Japanese Festival near the end of every summer. Check in to see some of the awesome arts and culture showcases they have there! (Featuring: the Wash U Kendo Club)
Community time! The St. Louis Festival of Nations
A little about my experience volunteering at the St. Louis Festival of Nations, an awesome multicultural celebration near Wash U. Stay tuned for Cultural Festivals part II— the Japanese Festival!
Let it Snow (Ice Cream)
Hey all! The weather is warming up here, so I thought I’d do a small vignette about one of my new favorite ice cream places!
Always make time for bananas
Hi everyone! If I had to describe myself as a foodie in two words, I would pick colorful and bananas. I am still trying to figure out which one describes me better. Is “colorfulananas” a word? 😛
I Can’t Bey-Lieve It
Every once and a while, I’m reminded why I love living in St. Louis.
Experiencing the Night Sky
Few things have managed to unite human spirit and determination quite like outer space. The prospect of seeing beyond our own world, discovering intelligent life outside of our planet, and potentially learning of the origins of our universe drives individuals across the entire world to look up into the sky with awe and imagine what fantastic things lay out there. This week I had the wonderful opportunity to visit the James S. McDonald Planetarium in Forest Park, and once again gaze up to the stars and marvel at worlds beyond our own.
Did someone say coffee shop?
One of my favorite things about St. Louis is how often I find “hidden gems,” or under the radar, amazing places. Last Thursday I decided that I needed an after-work coffee, and found myself at RISE Coffeehouse in the Grove based on a friend’s recommendation. Little did I know that I was in for an absolute treat.
