I love going to this museum! They have some great attractions and there is one section of the museum that has something different every time I go. This keeps it interesting and it also allows artists who are trying to get their stuff noticed. This museum houses not only some of the great masters, but also local talent. This is ...

Lots of local color, music on they street corners, bands playing for happy hour, plenty of amazing food choices- something for everyone, lots ...

    Harling's Upstairs Bar & Grill

    I visited Harling's Upstairs Bar for the Kansas CIty Glassblowers Guild kick off party. I had never been before, but I've walked past their door plenty of times. I didn't realize that it was the door to a "secret" bar. There are no signs or notification, but once you walk upstairs you know you're in the right place. It is ...

    World Market is one of my favorite places to buy beverages. They've always got something new to try. One of my recent favorite findings is Chai Cola. World Market also has a great wine selection and all sorts of other goodies you won't find anywhere else.

    Temple Slug is another place I just visited for the first time. I've driven past their sign plenty of times, wondering what was inside. I was on an adventure today, so I stopped in to check it out. When I walked you could smell the awesome incense, and aromatic oils. I walked in a bit more and found all sorts ...

    Williams-Sonoma has some of the coolest kitchen gadgets I've ever seen. I bought a little mustard scoop because it was awesome looking. I don't use it for mustard, but I've found a much better use for it. The only downfall of the store is the cost, all good things come with a mighty "good" price tag that I can't afford ...

    Urban Outfitters is a pretty awesome clothing store in Kansas City. More than the clothes, I am a fan of the shoes they carry and some of the miscellaneous fun stuff. I picked up a book called "Stuff White People Lke" last time I was in, it is a comical account of things that "white people" enjoy. If you're looking ...

    Well, I don't honestly have a review for Forever 21, but in order to add it I have to say a few words. I'm a guy and I'm pretty sure they don't have men's clothing in this store, but I imagine it is pretty rad if you're a lady.

    I stopped into Phoenix Herb because they started following my twitter account. The store has a great selection of loose leaf teas as well as a few walls covered with various other herbs. I wish I had more money to try all of the different teas, I'll report back when I do!

    This Frank Lloyd Wright building is a bit of an eyesore on the outside but the spire of light gets points for originality. Worth a quick peek in the evening just because of the architectural significance.

    I've only been to Liberty Memorial one time and that was to take photos at night. I've driven past it a thousand times and recognize it as a Kansas City landmark, though I haven't explored it much on my own.

    There are some good bars and restaurant for hanging out with friends. The scene at Westport was around long before Power and Light. It may have lost some luster due to the P&L, but it's still a nice place to go for a night out. There is more history here than many other areas of the city. I wouldn't bring ...

    Boulevard Brewing Co.

    4 reviews

    Agree with Mike Karr's earlier remarks: highly recommended the short tour conducted by fun staff, clearly imbued with a pride of what this local "brewery that could" has achieved in just a scant few years. Enjoyed the pre and post tour stops in the tasting room with ample samples of delicious beers.
