The Many Faced God

This piece by +CTutTheCreator is incredible on so many levels...there is a deep intellectual meaning behind it that really showcases the depth of skill CTut is putting into his work. I love it!

If you believe +T- Pain can't sing because he uses AutoTune, check out this epic live set he did for +NPR

The amenities were great, but the sleep number bed wasn't actually adjustable and the bathroom could have been more thoroughly cleaned. Small downside to an otherwise 5 star experience.

I went in for an oil change based on the all 5-star reviews of this place. They impressed me on so many levels that I also had to write a review of my own! I arrived early for my appointment (easily scheduled online), and they took my car right away. The managers in the office were friendly and knowledgeable, making conversation without seeming pushy or overly chatty. They also rang up my oil change for the sale price on their website without me even mentioning it or showing them the coupon I had remembered to print and bring with me. They didn't try to upsell me on random new "problems" they wanted to fix with my car, and in fact they complimented me for having a vehicle in near-perfect condition! They were nice enough to point out one problem they *had* noticed, but instead of trying to push me to fix it with them right away, they said I was in good enough shape that I probably wouldn't need to replace the parts for up to a year and half. They gave me a quote for the work and got me on my way without any pressure, and it felt great! I definitely recommend these guys for any kind of car work...they really know their stuff!

This place is the best sushi restaurant in town! Not as expensive as KO Fusion or Kamakura, but with better quality food! The chef's special roll is definitely worth getting every time, they show off great creativity in the dish.

Sugarfire has revitalized the St. Louis BBQ scene. Where Pappy's and Bogart's were great, Sugarfire has elevated the craft to a new level. Their creativity combined with incredible dedication to perfection has left them the undisputed kings of St. Louis Smokehouses. Their meat can rival a Texas standout, and their sauces can even put Kansas City to shame. Specifics: Brisket - Perfectly tender, never too dry Pulled Pork - Juicy and delicious Ribs - Incredible dry rub comes out with the perfect level of moisture and flavor Turkey - Some of the best smoked turkey I've ever had Sausage - Well-balanced flavor, love the cheese and bit of spice! Brisket Cheesesteak - A brilliant sandwich idea, quite possibly the best on the regular menu. Pork Belly Hush Puppies - Need I say more? Smoked Chocolate Chip Cookie - Trust me when I say you'll want one. The smoke flavor doesn't come on too strongly, it's the extra touch all cookies need. Adult Shakes - My personal favorite is the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bourbon Milkshake...I was hooked since Day 1! The above is just my favorite sample of their everyday menu...beyond that they have incredible sides and specials that change every day, making you want to come back time and again! My favorite recurring special by far is the Pulled Rib Sandwich, which takes rib-eating to an whole new level! I would eat Sugarfire every day if I had the option, and I recommend you do the same.

I don't understand the negative reviews here...when I went the food was excellent, and the service was both friendly and prompt. We had to wait a bit to get our check, but it wasn't really an issue.
