MUSS DEFEAT DADRANK D:
Put me down boss. I'll have all my newb friends from work with me. My bud Scott, my other bud Scott, my Bud Dave and his two sons, and my other bud Zach, all friends from work.
For those who aren't familiar with the area, Yeti Gaming is in a mall. There's a huge open court in front of it, so that's where they'll set up tables and whatnot. Also for those of you who aren't familiar with the area, Crestwood Mall is beyond terrible.
1) There are hardly any "mall type stores" in this "quote-unquote-mall". It's mainly weird artsy shops, theaters, dance studios, home-made-craft shops, etc. I think there's still a gamestop, and maybe one or two normal clothing stores, but the rest of it is that weird artsy crap.
2) The foodcourt is in a creepy, dim, windowless basement. Also, the guy who runs the Greek restaurant is a real jerk. He got mad at me when I asked him what a "Jiy-roh" was.
3) Lock your car doors, this is not the nice side of town. I'm not being silly, or exaggerating about this. I have two close friends who have had stuff stolen from their cars in this mall's parking lot because they were nobs and didn't lock their doors. I also hear about break-ins there on the news a lot.

There are plenty of great places to eat all within very short driving distance. Super Smoker's Barbecue is goooooooood. If you're into musical instruments, there's a Guitar Center only a few hundred yards down the road. The mall does have a decent, if not small theater. There's also a fairly nice bowling alley just a few hundred yards up the road too.
Other than that, I seriously can't think of anything in the immediate area. Grant's Farm is maybe a couple of miles away. If you've got little kids it'd be a nice trip. Petting zoo, that kind of stuff. Another stop for little kids, even younger teens would be the Magic House, which is only a couple of miles away. It's this huuuge enormous mansion filled with all kinds of science-y, learning stuff. There's an enormous electromagnet that you can touch and your hair stands on end. All kinds of neat exhibits.
Anything else and you'll be driving into St. Louis.
Also, just so it's been said. No. You cannot crash at my place.
