We're thinking of putting together a midwest Fools gathering somewhere near St. Louis. Anyone out there interested in getting together for some brews, BBQ, whatever we decide to do? Give a yell and we'll set something up. So far I know aroach, LK, B*mann, and coxam are in the area. Anyone else that may be here or may soon be coming here, let us know and we'll go out for some fun.

We're thinking of putting together a Midwest Fools gathering somewhere near St. Louis

I'm a Midwest Fool residing in the St. Louis area. I might be up for a little Foolish Q and brew.

By-the-way catdaddy1, you will be able to tell the real Midwesterners from the fakes by whether they know what a pork steak is or not. I think pork steaks are a St. Louis thing. The rest of the word doesn't know what they're missing.

eeegad!

Did you read her interview? She likes golf, doesn't necessarily make her a golfer.

Some guy at work was discussing handicaps with me on Monday. He had a 4. I said I had a 16. He said that wasn't too bad until I told him that was 16 for 9 holes... I like to play anyway...

A golf addict to be exact.

Not a good golfer mind you. Just someone who continually tortures herself by swinging a stick at a little ball in a big open field in the boiling hot St. Louis heat and humidity for a rotten score and thinks she is having fun.

Now that sounds like a plan. Just don't expect low scores from me. I'm lucky if I par a hole.

Only if you want me to, but I'll definately be wearing ugly shoes. Plus you'd have to come golfing to find out. I suck too so that's not a good excuse.

Yes in deed they are! I have a couple of Fools coming to visit from Vermont over Labor Day and when I told them we would cook some pork steaks on the grill they just got that confused, vacant eye look. So, had to explain what they were. Now they are looking forward to giving them a try.

Hmmm, when are y'all thinking of having this get together? I'm a former St. Louisan now exiled to the East Coast, but I get back into town occasionally.

(And I'm stuck in a poor baseball town at that - Philly. Had to enjoy the last few seasons of McGwire et al vicariously. *sigh*)


Whadya think about Ramone's in C-Ville as a potential spot? Great Mexican food and good margueritas? Or do we need to have it to St. Lou?


Allow me to suggest Blueberry Hill in U City as another spot. Lots of good beers and a great place for darts and other bar games if you're into that kind of thing.

Rav,
To truly understand the magic of the Pork Steak, you must first experience first had the perfectly Bar-B-Qued steak at the hands of a master. I assume from previous statements made here the catdaddy1 fits that bill. In order for this to happen, guess you will have to come to St. Louis and gather around the grill (preferably with beer in hand) and watch as the hot charcoal and sauce combine to create a mouth watering sensation.

In St. Louis, when people say come on over for Bar-B-Q, it is just understood that they mean pork steaks (and sometimes brats or ribs as a side). Go to the meat counter in the summer here and you willfind more pork steaks to choose from than beef steaks. Someone else will have to jump in here and tell you what part of the pig they cut up into steaks, don't know. All I know is that they are really great.

eeegad!

B,

.... anything else?
IMO's pizza, Grandpa's (well, it used to be grandpa's), "It's not the heat, it's the humidity", and The Landing. I actually don't know that there are too many STL sayings that aren't used elsewhere. I also don't know anyone that says "farty-far" when referring to I-44 but somehow people think that is common. I tend to hear things like "Warshington" or "Crik" (creek).

Have you noticed, though, the male to femaile ratio of MidWestern Fools that's shaping up?
I did notice that and I am a bit surprised by it for some reason (don't know why, maybe the STL Fool men are just too grumpy to go out).

Bodes well for us, methinks.
Remember your vows, my friend!

Plus, it's probably a sure way to get yef to fly out here!
That would be cool!

Whadya think about Ramone's in C-Ville as a potential spot?
Geez. I could almost walk there from my house...
Actually, I've never even been there but I know where it is and I've lived in this town for over 3 yrs. I'm all for C-ville, but since there are so many people from the city and parts west (remember, a and lk are in Springfield and Anna is in Columbia - if we can find her) that they'll probably want something more centrally located. If we do decide something on the east side, there are lots of golf courses that are easy to find so that is one plus. Besides, if folks are cool about it (no getting silly and trashing my place), I've got room to crash at my house for anyone that gets too pissed or tired to drive. (Bring your own sleeping bag because I never replaced the furniture after ex-gf moved out so all I have is my couch, loveseat that gets no love, and a futon - how bachelor can I get, right?) I have tons of floor space though.

We'll see what they say.

Heh... I think I had you beat up until a week ago. My living room contained a fish tank, a rowing machine, an inflatable chair and ottoman, two beanbags and some throw pillows. Plus the TV, etc, of course. The "dining room" table had two camping-type folding chairs, and nothing else. I just got a hand-me-down couch from a friend's parents, so now the place actually looks inhabited.

Do you work with those dopes from St. Louis for any extended length of time? They ALL say "farty for." I think it's genetic or something.

<if that doesn't smoke out some St. Louis lurkers, I don't know what will>

You like Imo's? I LOVE Imo's!!!! The Square Beyond Compare! Probably even better than a pork steak.

Hey -- didja notice? I think Jedi is waffling a bit! Seems the idea of getting a piece of pork a** has her intrigued.. :-)

Yes, I also thought that Ramone's might not be the best place, all things considered. Blueberry Hill was suggested, but that's still a pretty long drive from Springfield and Columbia. I don't know of any halfway points between Columbia and St. Louis. Anyone else with suggestions? A GREAT place to go would be Fast Eddie's Bon Air in Alton -- cold beer, great atmosphere, lots and lots of good, CHEAP food... but that's still 15 miles further north of me. But it is a great place.

BTW: I also have some extra room. Lots of extra room if we wait until the weather is a little cooler. As I said, I have a very large sceened in porch on the back o' the house (No AC -- still pretty warm at night back there), with three couches which would make very good "crash sites" is anyone is so inclined. (Might have to share one with the dog, however.)

I like this. Fools. Beer. Golf. Beer. BBQ. Beer. Sleeping with the dog. Beer. Hangover. Bs & G. Tequila.

Sounds like a trip down collegiate "Memory Lane"...

Never worked in the city. I didn't want to deal with traffic. Actually, I delivered stuff there for a while but my company was based on the east side. I grew up here and I don't say that. Maybe it's because I'm an Illinoisan?

a piece of pork a**
I find that a bit intruiging when you put it that way... :)

Fast Eddie's Bon Air in Alton
OOOOOHH. Fat-Eddie's. That's a great place. I should have listed that in my response to fav taverns. Problem is that they are jam packed on weekends. Nothing like Elwood-on-a-stick for $1.50.

Fools. Beer. Golf. Beer. BBQ. Beer. Sleeping with the dog. Beer. Hangover. Bs & G. Tequila.
Spoken like a true midwesterner (except the to-kill-ya part)

How about this:
Golf at Forest Park's course (for those interested) - for those not golfing, the zoo and the art museum are right there. Then BBQ in the park or at my or B*mann's house. If not BBQ, we could hit Caleco's near SLU (good food). Then hit a pub and hang out. Then anyone needing a place can crash at B's or my pad and we'll get Bs and G in the morning.

Who's game?

plus, the science center is just a mile away from Forest Park... there's also lots of bike trails and stuff..

I've never played Forest Park's course, so that's a good one for me! I can also vouch for the food at Caleco's.

I guess all we need now is volunteers...

Actually, the correct answer to this is:

Yes.

Both.

Over charcoal, slathered with your favorite tomato-based sauce. That's the traditonal Mid-Western style, though I do favor MoonBucks' version more than occasionally.

Of course, that's lots of ways to Q... but that's the most popular.

Difference between chops and steaks? Well, I didn't know ... so I went to: http://www.freshpork.com
(or course)..

and, Dang! pork steaks don't come from the hog's butt (that's ham) but come from the shoulder butt (the upper shoulder).. what we refer to most commonly as the "pork steak" is actually called a "pork blade steak." Pork chops come from the cut on the pig called the "loin," which is actually the upper back of the pig. Pork steaks can, however, also be made from the loin cut.

Does that help? :-)

Preparation difference: it's blasphemous to eat a pork steak that's not slathered in BBQ sauce, while pork chops aren't nearly as good barbequed as they are if prepared differently. Go figger!

Bon Appetite.

What's the difference between a pork chop and a pork steak?

A pork steak is cut from the butt and is larger than a pork chop which comes from the rib/loin area. The pork steak is darker meat and has more marbling. By BBQ, I mean grilled outdoors over charcoal usually sopped with someone's special tomato based sauce. However, they are quite tasty marinated and grilled without sauce. Many BBQ gurus marinate them overnight in beer. Yummy!

If you think pork steaks are a strange St. Louis tradition, wait until you hear about mostaccioli (south St. Louis spelling) and weddings.

A pork chop is something that should have been made into Canadian bacon if they'd had any sense.

Happy to oblige.

Of course it is true also. Back when we used to raise pigs the butcher would always ask if we wanted that cut as pork chops or Canadian bacon. I always looked at him as if he had a screw loose and he'd sheepishly reply "I gotta ask"

Add to my loves - there is nothing as good a home grown and cured bacon and ham.

Wanna hear somethin' funny? My wife tried home-grown and cured bacon (my brother-in-law is from a farming family) and didn't like it...

The reason? It didn't taste like "real" bacon!

City Folks!

And she probably didn't like the ham because it didn't have the proper essence of watery rubber sponge that is was supposed to have.

Guess I'll have to take your word on this one since it is unlikely I will ever have opportunity to raise a pig and take it to market.

However, I do live on an old pig farm...... though all that is raised here now are deer, turkey, ground hogs, squirrels, rabbits and an occasional fox.

eeegad!
who was kind enough in her reply not to make an odor remark :-)

I'd love a meeting in St. L! We can show those durn easterners what a REAL party is like. Catdaddy can be the judge.

Bribes for catdaddy? You should be pitching in on a plane ticket for Rav. He'll teach you how to party.
