Best Bet


Vess is an old local soft drink maker. The iconic bottle has been on the north edge of downtown for decades. It is about to be restored in honor of the company's 100th anniversary.

The sign board is for Lumiere Place casino, just off frame to the left. I think St. Louis' best bet is to stay far away from there.

We expect to meet a big shot from France today, as well as see the governor of Missouri (I've met him before) and my brother (him too). All at the same time. Hope I get close enough for a good shot. Details to follow.

That's good that it's going to be restored for its birthday. It doesn't look that bad in the photo. Good luck with getting your photo of the big shot :)

That's an eventful day! The brand of soda's never been up here to my knowledge.

Never heard of Vess, but many places have local drinks unknown to others. I get blank stares when I mention I drank Birch Beer as a kid. Waiting to hear who le Fran├žais is.

Never heard about that one, I bet you can afford a few of those if you stay away from the casino!
