I might have non gamer family coming. Does anyone know what the costs for taking the tram or buses are?

Rides on Metro, the STL area public transit system, are $2.00 for busses, $2.50 for the MetroLink lightrail. You can also get a 2-hour pass, which gives you unlimited rides for a 2-hour period via bus or lightrail for $3.00 each, or a $7.50 all-day Adventure Pass, good for one full calendar day. There is a MetroLink station not too far from the hotel, but figuring out the transit system schedule can be a little daunting. You can get all the details you need here:

Public transport in STL is not the best. It's very slow.

If I left from my work to my house right now (non-rush hour) it is 22 miles and will take about 27 minutes. If I did public transport it would take 2 hours and 36 minutes. I would have to walk about a mile 3 times, change 3 buses, and ride the train (metro-link) once.

We are officially hosting a post-convention brunch there on Sunday this year! Starts at 10:30 am.
Very cool place with a great atmosphere and TONS of games.


Where do we sign up for that? My flight back isn't until Sunday evening so I would love to go.

I haven't set up a Facebook event for that yet. As soon as I do, I'll post it so that you and others can RSVP.
Thanks!
