As the Gateway Grizzlies vow to reclaim their 2003 title as Frontier League champions or choke the rivers with their dead, fans can watch them triumph from the very best of ballpark tush cushions: field-reserve box seats (a $10 value at the box office). A hot dog (a $1.75 value), chips (a $2 value), and soda (a $3 value) all give the mouth something to do besides scream at the umpire for attempting to surreptitiously break up with his girlfriend via text message. The five Grizzlie Bucks ($5) can be used toward additional food and merchandise at the ballpark. For the complete experience, zealous baseball buffs will get to step up to the virtual plate and take swings at 10 pitches ($5) with the ProBatter PX2 Professional Baseball System. ProBatter synchronizes videos of real pitchers with a pitching machine, creating the sensation of facing a professional knuckleballer that is so convincing, you can almost feel the tobacco juice sprinkling your face.

Cole further helps resuscitate ear drums traumatized by the outside world's blaring car horns and shrill howler monkeys.

Ornate chandeliers and a high-ceilinged auditorium are just two stunning features of Powell Hall, an opulent, Versailles-inspired concert venue built in 1925. Originally known as the Saint Louis Theatre, Powell Hall was bequeathed its new moniker after the Saint Louis Symphony Society won it during a heated card game with a band of ragtag vaudeville performers. With its marble-accented lobby and sprawling interior, Powell Hall continues to beckon visitors to take in its inimitable sights and classic sounds.
