Calling all Millennials and Generation Y’ers! If you happen to have been born in the 1980s, 80’s Flashbax should tug at some very special heartstrings.

In this all-new episode of Toy Hunter, Jordan heads to the “Show-Me” state of Missouri in the hopes that collectors will “show him” some great, vintage toys from the ’80s. While in Missouri, Jordan comes away with a special Star Wars collectible — a Darth Vader collector case, as well as an immensely popular Pee-wee Herman doll. Did I mention that this is just the first stop of Jordan’s journey through Missouri?

To find out more about Jordan’s trip to Missouri and to see what other vintage toy collectibles he picked up, tune in for an all-new episode, tonight at 9|8c.

Recently, I went to St. Louis to visit a friend, where we shared a room at the Hyatt right downtown, directly across from the Arch. That first day, we ate a late lunch at a great Irish pub about 4 blocks from the hotel. After a lot of walking around and shopping, we ended the evening by eating at the Brewhouse restaurant in the hotel. The atmosphere was very festive, as the Blues Hockey team was in town and on TV. They won and the bar flooded with happy attendees shortly after. St. Louis is a great sports town and we experienced it firsthand.

The next day, we got up early and walked about 2 miles to the famous Soulard Farmers Market, where we enjoyed people watching and drinking the best Bloody Marys I have ever had. Afterward we ate a great breakfast at a local hot spot, where we sat by the window watching people preparing for the annual Tap ‘N’ Run 4K.

After breakfast, we walked to the Busch Brewery and took a great tour, enjoying libations at the end. While walking all the way back to the Arch we definitely enjoyed the antics of the 4K runners along the way.

That evening we went to another hotel for a drink accompanied by a beautiful view of the Arch, then headed to another local hot spot for dinner, ending up at Laclede’s Landing where we enjoyed a great dueling piano bar.

Up again early the next day, we ate breakfast at a great local hot spot that specializes in all local foods before heading to the Arch. No trip to St. Louis is complete without going to the Arch. Unfortunately, my claustrophobia did not permit me to partake, but my companions did go inside and enjoyed it very much.

Before heading to the airport, we traveled to the quaint town of St. Charles where they were having their first monthly “Sunday Funday” of the year.

This was a great, quick, local flavor trip and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Welcome to the “Paris of the Plains,” where, tonight, the National League will go head-to-head with the American League in the 83rd Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, MO. Maybe they won’t settle the argument of whether a designated hitter is a good idea or not, but America’s favorite players will surely compete in an exciting battle of the brawn that symbolically marks the halfway point of the baseball season.

From its fountains and parks to its famous barbecue, Kansas City holds its own as an All-Star Game host city. Learn more about the city that the Royals call home with our gallery of Kansas City’s sights.

And while we’re figuring out which league is better, let’s talk about whose stadium is the coolest, too — check out Travel Channel’s picks for Baseball’s Greatest Stadiums.

Who will you be rooting for tonight? We want to know!

A tornado with winds whipping at 190-198 mph touched down in Joplin, MO, on Sunday, killing 117 people. Thunderstorms and rainy weather today continued to keep residents on edge.

Rescue crews have pulled 7 people from the rumble, but the search continues to find more survivors in piles of splintered houses and crushed cars.

According to NBC News, this was the single deadliest tornado since 1947. With a base of 3/4 mile across, the tornado destroyed everything in its path, creating a debris cloud of almost 18,000 feet in the air.

Take a look at this horrifying video from izelsg, a YouTube user, who experienced the severe weather first-hand. It was a very unsettling video to watch and or listen to as people in the store took cover in a walk-in storage fridge. Thankfully, everyone was OK.
