Congrats Maplewood! Three of our business were nominated for a Patch Readers' Choice Award in all of St. Louis, and won in a popular vote! Imo's Pizza won the nod for best St. Louis style pizza. The Brown family opened our Imo's in 1970, and it's still in the family, now one of the many woman-owned busineses in Maplewood. The Post Sports Bar won (OK, tied) as the best place to watch the big game. That's not a surprise, or the first recognition The Post has won. In March Riverfront Times named it as one of the 10 best sports bars in St. Louis. Last but not least the Schlafly Bottleworks won the survey for the best beer garden in St. Louis. Congrats to all! We're so glad you're here in our community!
