Kansas City LOVE!
The Chiefs won the Super Bowl this week, so our city is electric! Schools closed for a Red Snow Day, so the city could celebrate at the parade together. This week’s celebrations are reminders of why this city is amazing!
Here are a few of my favorite Kansas City favorites!
For Us: This local brewery’s beer is found across the nation now, and we know why! Not only is their Boulevard Wheat (the Hazy American Classic) a staple in your household, but their innovative new brews keep locals checking out their latest at our local liquor store. They just launch their Fling Cocktail series and like all their products it is a beer twist on everyone’s favorite cocktails; think Blood Orange Vodka Soda, Cucumber Lime Gin & Tonic, Mai Tai, and so many more!
For the Family: A weekly stop for our family! Pizza is great for the family but having a dine in restaurant in our neighborhood has been a lifesaver. The table are covered with white paper for the kids to draw on; my son helps himself to the crayon drawer for this fun entertainment option. The pizza is great and the weekly special help us mix it up, but I can never leave without our regular Philly Cheesesteak pizza. Not only do they have regular and gourmet pizzas, they also have a plethora of appetizers, salads, pastas, and calzones. We are creatures of habit and probably need to venture out on their menu.
For the Family: Although the Chiefs just left our city feeling more pride than we have felt since the Royals won the World Series in 2015 (pre-kids), I have to admit that my kids have never been to a Chiefs game, BUT we are avid baseball game attendees. One of our favorite summer activities are to pack up the boys and head out to the ballpark! Since having our first son, we still attend 5 or 6 games a season and enjoy *almost* every moment. No games are never the same as they used to be, but with enough snacks packed and weather appropriate clothing we truly enjoy our time out at the ballpark as a family!
