Weekend Recap: KC

image

Hi friends! We did it, we made it to hump day. So give yourself a high-five (AKA one clap), and call it a day. This past weekend was a special one for fiance and me. We took a trip down south (Kansas City is technically the midwest, but very much south of us). It was my brother in-law to-be’s portfolio show, so we went down to show him some sibling support. But we did a lot more than just go to his show. I’ll break this post down by items consumed, places went, and dogs. So keep on reading. Ya know, because dogs.

Food & Stuff:

Yeah guys, I’m addicted to coffee and I’m not embarrassed to admit it. We went to two different local places (we’re above The Bucks). The Roasterie was my personal favorite, and they had this nitrogen infused coffee on tap, which basically tasted like a creamy Guinness. Not all super heroes wear capes guys.

In a plot twist that rivals The Sixth Sense, this diner called Big Biscuits served really big biscuits. True to brand, true to brand.

Alright, so all of you people who are stuck in 2006 and don’t know how cool KC is now. Let me tell you, they have one of the best bar scenes. If you go down there make sure to check out Westport, you will not be disappointed by the abundance of patio and rooftop bars.

Places we went:

Overland Park is a city right next to KC and has one of the cutest farmer’s markets. It’s just one strip in a parking lot, but just look at these homemade bottles of Kombucha and tell me you aren’t already packing your bags.

This dope-ass arena is in the Power & Lights district. Downtown Kansas City just, I mean literally just, started running a city street car (it’s free!). It makes getting around the downtown districts super simple & fast AF – well faster than walking.

Mason, AKA brother in law to be, had his portfolio showing at the WWI Museum. The interior was cool enough, but check out this view! I told you guys Kansas has a pretty impressive scene going on right now.

We checked out a new exhibit at the Nelson, KC’s art museum. We go here almost every time we visit, and I must admit it is always nice. I particularly like their modern wing & the atrium.

Rest & Relaxation

It wouldn’t be a perfect weekend without a little R&R. Logan’s aunt and uncle also live in KC so we spent a lot of time at their place (they are the most amazing hosts). They filled my belly with tasty food, and my heart with lots of dog love. What more could a girl ask for?

What did you do last weekend?

Weekend Recap Vol 7

KC3

This past weekend the boyfriend and I went to Kansas City to visit some family. I don’t think KC gets enough credit for how awesome of a city it is, so here are some pics to convince you.

* We had some amazing Chinese food at Blue Koi. I ordered the ginger chicken with noodles. YUM

* Quality cat snuggles with the boyfriends brother’s kitty cat

* Seeing the boyfriend with his family makes me fall in love with him all over again

* We went to a flea market in the meat packing district. All the stores were in old warehouses so I basically felt like I was on the set of Rent.

* They had these candles made from old alcohol (miller lite, absolut, makers mark) bottles. I totally felt like I was inside of an Etsy store.

* I’m seriously obsessed with Kansas City beer. Specifically Boulevard’s Unfiltered Wheat!

* Looking for a tasty breakfast sammy? Check out Opera House

* Tapas at Bodega, obviously not as good as Spain, but it’ll do.

* Now that we’re all over 21 we could finally enjoy a night out on the town. I was happily surprised that like every bar had a rooftop. AMAZING

* Some evidence of our night out, so much fun!

We had a great Labor Day Weekend in KC, I can’t wait to go back!
