This weekend Francisco visited and we did some crazy touring. Friday was filled with incessant cold rain, so we spent the afternoon at the St. Louis art museum and had dinner at The Shaved Duck, which is known for its barbeque and had lots of warm comfort food to take the chill off.

On Saturday, we started out at the Wash U art museum (can you tell we like art?), which had a great little exhibit about cities, before heading to World's Fair Donuts. It's a tiny building just off the highway. 

The rumor is that the name came from the address--1904, the year the World's Fair was held in St. Louis.

We arrived around 11 a.m., and there were barely any donuts left--Francisco was nervous that the customers in front of us would buy all the rest before we could get any. However, the ones we got were still warm, and there's nothing that beats a warm donut on a cold day.

I know it's a cliche, but going in there was like going back in time--the woman waiting on customers had a beehive hairdo, and the cash register that they use is vintage. It's not fancy, but the donuts are delicious.
