St. Louis loves its baseball. It seems you can't go a day without seeing someone in a Cardinals jersey. So when it comes to eating out and drinking up, this city embraces its team. Here are some of the places owned and operated by current and former Redbirds.
Eat and drink like a Cardinal

Albert Pujols may be one of the best to ever don a Cardinals uniform. He's still going strong, and is the only current player on this list.
So Ozzie's Westport place is closed, but a brand-new joint bearing his name now sits open on Washington Avenue. Even though Ozzie has no stake in this new venture, we thought it appropriate to include this place.
Mike Shannon took off his jersey to step into the broadcast booth to become the voice of the St. Louis Cardinals. His steakhouse offers up great food, and his "Outfield" bar is one of the best places to party before and after a game.
It broke my heart to see Jimmy in a Cubs jersey a couple years ago, but now that he's out of Chicago, I can love him again, right? Edmonds owns an upscale steakhouse and nightclub downtown.
Ok, neither Jack Buck nor Joe Buck ever played for the Cardinals. But there was no way we were leaving this popular Cardinals hangout off the list.
Expect to see a lot of baseball memorabilia inside these places. Who knows, you might even run into some current or former Cardinals.
