Washington Post: Go for the Food, Springfield, MO

We found a large stand all lit up, with servers in caps and uniforms manning lines. Andy’s is a small regional chain, still owned by the family that started it in Springfield in 1986. As recommended by someone at Pizza House, I got pumpkin pie in vanilla custard, and learned that mixing a topping into a frozen dessert is known regionally as concrete (similar to a blizzard). It was divine. Full Story.

Andy's in Gone Girl

When viewers take their theater seats to watch the feature film "Gone Girl," which premiered during a special Thursday night showing, they are first treated to an ominous shot of a foggy Mississippi River.

Cape Girardeau's floodwall makes a quick appearance before the film kicks into a montage of the city. Broadway and Spanish streets are shown in the film's initial moments, followed by a rush of homes -- some with cheerful gardens and others barren with overgrown weeds, sporting "For Sale" signs. The iconic downtown clock also gets a little attention.

Rhodes 101 on South Sprigg Street also makes a quick appearance, and Andy's Frozen Custard on Kingshighway is shown in a still photo of Amy. CLICK HERE for Full Story.
