    KC weekend

    Going to KC for a three day weekend. Going to catch a Royals game but aside from that don't have much planned. Besides the P & L and Kelly's what are some interesting/unique restaurants/pubs or events that we should check out?

    Lidia's Italy is the most authentic Italian I've ever had. It's right by Jack Stack's Freighthouse, across the train tracks from Union Station.

    Very cool atmosphere too.

    I travel to KC quite a bit for work. The Negro League Museum is on my list of stuf to do when I am not chomping at the bit to get out of town. One of the art museums by the plaza has a Rodin exhibit. As someone who just visited Paris, this is appealing.

    This x 1000, and I second Lidia's as well. Just did both when at the Big 12 tourney.

    I love Oklahoma Joe's as well as Jack Stack. The Plaza is cool for shopping if you're in to that sort of thing.

    I've already heard so much about Oklahoma Joes that I'm going to have to put it on the list but have never heard of Lidia's.

    A bit pricey but well worth the food. Usually when I go home for Christmas and Easter my parents take me there. Best buy is Pasta Trio (Salad, 3 unlimited pastas and a dessert for $30 or you can without the salad and dessert for $20). They have 4 restaurants in Italy, NYC, Pittsburgh and KC.

    Second the WWI museum. Went there in the 8th grade for a field trip and it was awesome. Get to see how it was to walk through trenches and see some pretty cool artifacts.

    Boulevard Brewery tour is decent. You can check out their site and get a reserved spot for a saturday tour. They tend to fill up pretty quickly.

    Eggtc is a good breakfast joint in the south plaza area.

    Corner cafe for breakfast in Liberty or the original in Riverside is so good. French toast, biscuits and gravy. Along the heart-clogging route, Strouds is a jewel. Family style serving.

    Re: KC weekend

    Would add Steamboat Arabia museum and Harry Truman Presidential Library as things to do. For a more complete list check out our blog post on the Kansas City area (although a couple of places have closed since we posted this in 2008).

    We live full-time in our RV traveling and documenting the great places in this country.

    Lidia's and Oklahoma Joes are both good. If you like pizza, I really liked D'Bronx pizza although it's hard to get in the place.
