We stopped in at Sweetie Pies before the show in St. Louis last night. It was unbelievably delicious but we had to fight a severe case of the Itis before we went on. We were victorious against our capable foe and the show went on as planned. Now we are off to The Vault in Farmington. Show starts at 7.
