I've been planning a staycation for early November. Not a budget staycation, a Living Beyond Our Means for a week staycation.
Do you know there are all kinds sof absurd things you can do in Saint Louis if you wanted to spend the money AND had not already missed the events?
You can fly a fighter jet and participate in an airplane dogfight, with no prior training.
You can drive a racecar.
You could eat at a cafe that only takes eight people a night.
Sadly, I have missed the deadline to get any of these things done in November. However:
I can make a reservation to see the Purina puppy farm.
I can visit the brewery, which I haven't done since sixth grade.
I can watch Regina Spektor and Lindsey Buckingham on consecutive days at the Pageant.
Sadly, I can't find any way to rent a Porsche, or any type of sportscar. I'm investigating speedboats.
