Peterpepper wrote about DuSable Dog Park
I would honestly think twice about going to this dog park if I were you. Though the facility is very nice and most of the people were friendly enough, there is one large man who rules the park like it is his private fiefdom. I mention his bulk only because he is a bully who literally throws his weight around. He is an amazingly overprotective "pet parent" who intimidates the rest of the dog park people. He was verbally and physically threatening and actually pushed patrons around. This guy is a regular (with friends) and drives a red, four wheel drive truck (license plate ends with 338). If you see it in the parking lot - keep on moving! What started out as a great experience turned into a very, very negative visit. I will never bring my dogs back here and I recommend you avoid this place as well.

Uh, helium is completely flammable and will not "blow up." It does not burn and is completely safe. Hydrogen is very explosive, and has not been used in Zepplins since the 30's. It has slightly better lifting characteristics but really was only used because the US had a monopoly on the world's helium and would not sell it to Germany. Hence you got the Hindenburg and its hydrogen fueled fire. Do you think they would give kids literal bombs to play with in the form of balloons? Get your chemistry straight!
MARKSWAINARTS commented on Ten places to enjoy art in St. Louis
You left out one of the best galleries in St Louis which is SOULARD ART MARKET at the corner of 12th and Russell across the street from Mcguirks. SAM has monthly exhibits in the main gallery but even better, there are 12 resident artists which have artwork available at all times. The gallery is open on Thursday and Friday evenings and noon to 8 on Saturday and Sunday Noon - 6
NoSpin commented on Best public golf courses in St. Louis
First and foremost, any “best” list of golf courses in the St. Louis area that fails to include Annbriar is either a joke or unparalleled ignorance. Secondly, any “best” list that mentions Quail Creek is, well, B.S. QC is maintained like a low rent muny and is just plain ugly. I’ll add the following: 1) Avoid Spencer T. Olin in Alton unless you like 6 hour rounds and being treated like an annoyance at best, a criminal at worst. Olin Tip: if you need a ranger check first in the woods and heavy rough, you’ll probably find a couple looking for lost balls. 2) Avoid Stonewolf unless you have a camel. Typical Nicklaus course that is way to heavily and severely bunkered for the average golfer. Because of this it takes forever to get around it. Publics I would recommend: Fox Creek near Edwardsville and Belk Park in Wood River. Also, Rolling Hills GC in Godfrey is not a great challenge but the greens are also among the best and the staff is great.
