The place.

So, again and again. We’re off on another slinger adventure.  As what seems to be pretty normal these days, this trip was a comedy of errors.  Meh, whatever man, we had a fun morning.

So, we decided we were heading to the Schlafly Tap Room for the Schalfly Slinger.  We get in, and we sit down at our table, order up a couple beers…hey Johnny Cash had beer with his breakfasts…and we looked over the menu, and we didn’t see any breakfast stuff to speak of….so our waitress comes over and apparently the slinger is at the Bottleworks in Maplewood, or they don’t have it anymore…either way…we were out of luck here.

Let me start off this entry with a quick story.  As my local readers know, yesterday was really slick and nasty and snowy in the morning.  So, after I woke up I saw that I had a text from my wife asking if we were still planning on going out.  Well, I really wanted my slinger, so we were.  Well, it was slick, and this morning, we were set up for some serious issues.

So, I was planning on making this entry tomorrow.  I figured after last night that I’d be sleeping way in today and wouldn’t have time.  It’s 8:45am and the rest of my wedding party doesn’t arrive at the house till 1pm.  I don’t have to start getting ready until 12pm…but I woke up at like 7am today…so…I’m full of nervous energy, so here we go.  Let’s relive last night shall we!

Today my companion and I went on our next diner jaunt, The White Knight Diner on 18th and Locust. Let me preface this entry with a short story. I was telling the story of how this little blog got started to Christine, the owner of the Riverside Cafe, on Tuesday when we were enjoying the bar side of her establishment. It started with a joke. My soon to be father in law and I mentioned, as we drove past the White Knight, that we should eat there. My fiancee and her mother were not having it. So, I side, ok fine, you and me, we’re going on Saturday, but when we got there, it was closed, so we went to The Hoagie Diner instead, and the blog was started as an anecdote in a Facebook blog entry.

**Note**
This is the first in the continuing series in search of St. Louis’ best Slinger. I chose to move it to my current blog in order for all three to be in the same place. This particular entry is an abbreviated piece of a larger blog, before this became a continuing series.

So we head out to the White Knight Sandwich Shop on 18th and Locust.
