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

As French fries are one of my favorites food groups (i.e. curly, waffle, steak, etc.), I was having trouble choosing a favorite to feature today, so I decided it would be the perfect time to try something new. 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 →

National Onion Ring Day

When it comes to the great debate between french fries and onion rings (actually, is there really much debate?) I have to say I'm a more of a french fry gal. But obviously when it comes to National Onion Ring Day, I had to break my loyalty. I decided to conduct a quick internet search... Continue Reading →

National Ice Cream Soda Day

What could be more fitting for the first day of summer? I decided I wanted to celebrate with something a little extra special, so I set out in search of something more than just your basic root beer float. Glacé Artisan Ice Cream on the Plaza had exactly what I was looking for: a Salted... Continue Reading →

World Gin Day

It took me a long time to find out I liked gin. I blame that fact on one particular college experience where I was handed some Seagram's Extra Dry gin. Why that was even around, I will never know, but let's just say it didn't exactly go down easy. It's a shame my opinion of gin... Continue Reading →
