    Kansas City Trip

    In two weeks I'm heading out to KC for a fun weekend getaway. Friday night we already have tickets to a Royals vs Cards game. Saturday we're talking of Worlds of Fun. We found Jacks BBQ as a place to hopefully get some good food, but we're stuck on what else to fill our time.

    We'll be there most of the day Friday, and can't check in before 4pm, and probably won't head back till the evening on Sunday. So that leaves most of Friday, Saturday night, and most of Sunday to check out KC.

    We read up on the Power and Light district that seemed interesting, but any other recommendations?

    Tomfooleries on Sunday for brunch buffet and bloody mary bar is good.

    Vanilla Ice is playing behind Grinders in the crossroads district on Friday night.

    Re: Kansas City Trip

    There is a Harley Davidson Manufacturing Plant in KC that does tours but only during the week so you should try to get there on Friday. I think the tours start at about 10:00 am

    Now that's a type of food I wouldn't have considered until you said something.

    Here is a thread started just before the Big 12 basketball tournament. The first post pretty much nails it.

    The Boulevard tour books months in advance so it is likely too late for that.

    Check out Flying Saucer in PNL or The Foundry in Westport if you are a craft brew fan. The Screenland Theaters are a cool place to grab a beer and a movie. The Plaza has the best shopping. Eggtc. has the best breakfast. There are Sidepockets locations all over for billiards. Westport, Martini Corner, Power and Light, and Waldo (in order of personal preference) are all the drinking/entertainment districts.
