The Best Bet: Adam and Ryan
The first time Adam met Ryan, he thought Ryan was a real jerk. Adam was with a group of friends in the Loop, when Ryan entered the social circle along with a common friend of theirs. Adam commented on Ryan’s attire, which was very similar to his own. Ryan, overwhelmed by the number of strangers and distracted by trying to decide on a beer and burger choice, made no real notice of the comment. After several more chance meetings, Adam and Ryan began to discuss their mutual loves of punk rock, movies, and donuts. They had their first “man date” at Ryan’s apartment, at the time located in lovely Benton Park. For two years, their friendship grew by their sharing of laughter and emotions. During the third year, while Ryan lived in Chicago, the two began discussing a creative endeavor that could help strengthen the city Ryan missed so dearly. Ryan told Adam, “If we are going to do this web series, we should try to make it an outlet for local businesses and artists and other crazy people who want to do something fun.” Now, the two men want to share with all of St. Louis, their beloved hometown, the same laughter and emotions that made such a beautiful friendship possible.
