Halloween at the Hospital

We headed to the Central West End to check out the annual outdoor Halloween party that they have. Our buddy Steve-o lives over there and knew of a house party so we popped in for a meet and greet.

Attendance was pretty low this year. There was a protest and it was bitter cold.

Lydia tried to do the splits and busted herself. I had to take her to the hospital.

Luckily Brandon dressed as Mr. Monopoly so we already had a cane for her to use.

First Week at Anheuser-Busch

Today I started work at Anheuser-Busch. Sometimes it feels a little like working at a beer theme park.

There's a massive eagle sculpture in the lobby.

I'm on the seventh floor and there's a great view of the campus. I guess a few of the historical buildings are vacant. From up here you can see that some of the windows are missing.

There's a bar for the employees on the same floor as all the meeting rooms. Unsurprisingly a lot of the meetings involve beer.

Not buying everything in the gift shop is a daily struggle. My building has its own little gift shop in addition to the big one in the visitor's center.

There a couple of kegs in the break room and a beer case that we can raid on Fridays.

When I think of a complaint I'll be sure to let you know.

Crushing Some Beers in Columbia

We went to Columbia, MO for a little homecoming weekend. Zoe is pretty close to graduating so we are cherishing our remaining rages in the college town.

The preparty got a little out of hand. My sweet Marty McFly orange vest was not only hot but helped to deflect some flying beer.

There was a new video game bar in town that we had to check out: Silverball Bar.

The next day a few of us headed a bit west to Rocheport, MO. I heard something about an Oktoberfest and, 'tis the season.

Rocheport is on the Katy Trail and we ended up walking around in this really cool park.

I got kind of carried away with pictures of this tunnel.

Someone had laid a bunch of creepy rocks with faces painted on them all over the place.
