Matt and I visited St. Louis this week for a client meeting, but we found time to admire the view of the iconic 630-foot tall Gateway Arch, the tallest man-made monument in the United States and highest point in downtown St. Louis. On a previous visit I had taken the unique “tram” up to the observation deck, so we headed to Ted Drewe’s instead for their famous frozen custard. (It did not matter that it was below freezing outside!) The frozen custard would have been the Friday photo but I ate it too fast!
