St. Louis Road Trip: Part 2

On Saturday Emily, David, Dolly, Axle, and I jumped in the car to go take a walk around what is called The Loop. The Loop is somewhat of a 'Town Square', where there are tons of shops and restaurants clumped together. It was super busy, because it was a weekend. But we had no problems getting around the entire Loop in just a few hours.
 I got a chicken Gogi Bowl. It was delicious! 

We stopped for lunch at a super tiny restaurant called Seoul Taco. And, dear readers, it is exactly what it sounds like. Delicious Korean food, in taco form. This place was amazing. Seriously, some of the best food I've had in a long time. If you are ever in the STL area, you should absolutely make a stop here! 

My understanding is that this place used to be a food truck, and it was so popular that they turned it to a brick and mortar. Its probably a good thing that I don't live in STL, becuase I would most likely be sneaking off to this place for lunch just about every other day, haha!
 Why don't we have one of these in Nashville!?! I want cookies delivered to my door!
We walked into a used clothing store that had these types of signs on every rack. This was my favorite one in the whole store! Haa!

After walking around The Loop for a few hours we decided to take a break and head over to David's mom's house for a few minutes. When we were there Axle took a dip in the baby pool that David's mom keeps just for Dolly. It was really hot out, so I don't blame him!
After our pit stop, the five of us (3 humans and 2 dogs) jumped back in the car and headed over to the Midtown Taste & Arts Fair that was going on that weekend. There were tons of different booths, selling all sorts of delicious looking and smelling food. We were all still really full from lunch, but we did partake in a few treats. Emily and David split a yummy fresh fruit smoothie, and I found a stand that made ice cream martinis!!

Now I am not a drinker in the least bit. But I just had to try one of these decedent dessert drinks. I had a chocolate and mint Grasshopper, and it probably had only about 
a half ounce of Baileys Irish cream in it. But it was so good! The perfect cold treat on a hot day! We were having an awesome time walking around the fair, but it was getting to be crazy hot outside, so we decided to take a break and sit down in the grass for a few minutes.

 You can't tell me that these two are not related some how!

After about another hour we were ready to call it a day. We had been walking around down town STL all day, and we were all completely exhausted! It was time to go back to Emily's house for a well deserved rest! We had another busy day ahead of us on Sunday!
Check back soon for PART 3 of our STL Road Trip!
