Tangerine- In Memorium

| | Comments (0)
In St. Louis there was an awesome restaurant/bar called Tangerine. It featured a giant inflatable figure of Munch's "The Scream" floating over your head, projections of strange movies and things, and the most deliciously bad for you thing: Chicken Fried Portobello Mushrooms with mashed potatoes, peas, and cream gravy. That plus a cocktail? Yum, yum, yum. Tangerine closed a few years back (check out this very interesting story about that), so even if we got to St. Louis we couldn't revisit it. But luckily other folks on the internet loved this decadent dinner as much as us.
