National Meatball Day

Meatballs are a very versatile food, which is maybe one of the reasons I love them so much. They go from snack to appetizer to dinner with ease and are just as at home between two slices of bread in a sub as they are in a hearty bowl of pasta. In celebration of the... Continue Reading →

National Pizza Day

As a resident of the Crossroads Arts District in downtown Kansas City, there is no shortage of good pizza near me. And so, in honor of National Pizza Day, I would like to give a little tour of five of my favorite neighborhood spots (in no particular order). Papa Keno's New Kid on the Block... Continue Reading →

Crepe Day

I don't consider myself to be much of a crepe connoisseur. I only remember having crepes one other time in my life when I 'made' them myself, but it didn't really count because I just bought the pre-made crepe pastry stuff from the grocery store. So, I decided to venture out and try some from... Continue Reading →

National Cheese Lover’s Day

It's 2018! Which means it's time for me to get back on my blog game. So, for my first post of the year (and in a really, really long time sry), it's National Cheese Lover's Day! And I would definitely say I qualify. As an avid cheese fanatic, I found an article from KCUR last... Continue Reading →

National Tequila Day

How fitting that National Tequila Day would fall on a Monday. I naturally used this occasion to drag all my friends out to one of my new favorite Mexican spots in KC, Teocalí on Holmes just a mile outside of downtown. We all shared some pitchers of margaritas in celebration, and while the margaritas here... Continue Reading →

National French Fry Day

Based on a friend's recommendation, our group headed up to North Kansas City (which we should really... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Day

I spent Chocolate Day hitting up two of my favorite local chocolatiers in the Crossroads Arts District of downtown Kansas City: Christopher Elbow Chocolates and Bizz & Weezy Confections. My first stop was Christopher Elbow, located on McGee Street. Elbow has been crafting his unique and delicious creations here for many years now, and is... Continue Reading →

National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day

So far it seems like summer is full of nothing but an array of different ridiculous ice cream days, but hey, you won't hear me complain. And so in honor of National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day, I continued my rounds of local Kansas City ice cream shops and enthusiastically headed to what sticks out... Continue Reading →

National Catfish Day

When I saw this on the calendar, I knew exactly where I was headed. I love fried fish, and I knew I wanted to try someplace new, someplace that had caught my attention during my many trips up and down Main Street: Lutfi's Fried Fish. It's hard to miss their eye-catching orange storefront sign, and... Continue Reading →
