I'm white and married, so things are already very, very boring. And after living in NY, I think "rich" is a relative term. There are industries here where the many, many people make millions per year. For a beautiful house in a desirable neighborhood in St. Louis, I can purchase a 2 BR apt.


U City's a nice area, but staying south of Delmar is typically a good idea. Clayton is also very nice. The Central West End, Soulard, DeMun, Tower Grove, etc offer a slightly less suburban vibe and are all great neighborhoods. Im at Wash U (and lived in NYC previously) and live off campus near U City, but on the St Louis City side. There are some nice restaurants around, not a ton of modern fusion cuisine, but it's what you'd expect, theres a decent amount of nice little wine bars etc. As mentioned, St Louis Club is great food, highly recommended although it is a 70+ crowd (where the wealth in STL is), the chef is the white house's former chef. The nice thing, especially in comparison to NYC, is that you can live extremely comfortable for not very much money. Obviously housing is a fraction of the price, but food, gas, entertainment, etc are also much much less expensive.

I know at least one 45yo member.

Just about everyone you meet here is from here. Everyone is catholic. Alot of the ladies went to all-girl schools. Everyone pretends to like Provel. People I don't know tell me the Jayhawks suck. And the blackjack tables at the casinos are rigged.

It's not a bad place though. Pi has great pizza. Annie Gunn's has the best ribeye I've ever had. Pappy's had awesome BBQ. More and more Chipotles are popping up. Lots of places to drink. I guess all I care about is food and booze.
