As America’s interest in soccer continues to reach new levels, St. Louis, Missouri, and its new St Louis CITY SC are incorporating the tastes of the city with the sport. The soccer club’s flavor officer Gerard Craft, also a James Beard Award-winning chef, helped design what is being dubbed “the most comprehensive food experience in sports” with the CITY Flavor program.

 

Soccer-goers will find 52 food and drink stations in the stadium, comprised of local chefs and businesses, the most in Major League Soccer. Serving both local and international cuisine, the long list of options includes Balkan Treat Box, BEAST Craft BBQ Co., Steve’s Hot Dogs and Niche Food Group.

SleepKeeper

The older you get as a traveler, the more a comfortable night’s sleep matters and, for many, the difference between a night of painful tossing and turning and a night of restful sleep all comes down to two things: the mattress and the pillow you sleep on.
