I was looking for something a little more exotic than barbecue, so after slogging through about 10 American restaurants on opentable.com, we landed on Aya Sofia for some Turkish food in Midtown. Good luck finding parking.

connoisseur, was not pleased. It did have a bitterness at the front end, but dissolved quickly into a very bready flavor you would expect from a kolsch or other mild summer beer. Weird.
I always like to try craft beers, but I knew I could only drink so much before my behavior might run the risk of getting us both arrest at the airport, so I decide to test the distillery instead. These guys make a massive number of grain spirits--flavored and unflavored vodkas, tequila, rum, and more, which I thought was pretty exciting. I ended up getting a vodka flavored with gin and sweetened with agave syrup on the rocks. It was delicious. If my tolerance was higher (or if I lived in St. Louis), I would definitely go back and try more of their spirits. Not so sure about the beer. And the neighborhood is adorable--you should go if you're in town. Only 10 minutes or so from the airport.

By the way, you know how I've been slowly trying to compile places to bide your time while trapped in airports around the country? Lambert International Airport has not been added to that list.
