Even though I'm not a huge beer drinker, I would still hate to see Miller-Coors leave Milwaukee. How dare St. Louis brewer Anheuser-Busch try to purchase a brand that is distinctly Milwaukee?
This slightly snarky office conversation of course led to the following question: What would Milwaukee want from St. Louis in retaliation?
So, here are five things we will gladly take in return from the fine folks in St. Louis:
1. The Gateway Arch
I really don't need an explanation here, right? The arch, designed by Eero Saarinen, is a symbol – a very beautiful one at that – of St. Louis. Our lakefront is gorgeous already, but the Gateway Arch would be a great addition, don't you think? It'd certainly be an upgrade from The Calling.
2. City Museum
