If you’ve been so stressed out at work that even a grocery trip seems overwhelming, grab a beer at Spike And Steam. It’s a bar inside the SLU Whole Foods that is exactly what it sounds like - a counter and some tables right near the cash registers. The bar doesn’t serve food, but it’s literally inside a supermarket, so just grab a bag of chips, some samosas from the hot bar, a pint of ice cream, or even an entire head of raw cauliflower to snack on while you drink.
