An InstaTasting At Rowe Ridge Vineyards and Winery

By |2019-11-21T05:16:23-06:00December 7th, 2018|Kansas City, KC Fun, Out & About, Social Sips|

For those who haven't followed us long, we enjoy a nice glass of wine. Of course, we find that the reason they make so many varieties, is because everyone has their own preferences. Fortunately, we both are fans of wines on the sweet side, so it's not hard for us to find a bottle we both agree on. On a beautiful Fall day, we joined a group of social influencers for a visit to Rowe Ridge Vineyard & Winery, located at 11255 Leavenworth Road in Kansas City, Kansas. We want to thank Visit KCK and Rowe Ridge Winery for their hospitality. Rest assured [...]

Fueling Up At The Filling Station

By |2018-11-22T06:00:38-06:00August 10th, 2018|Kansas City, KC Dining, Social Sips|

Coffee! It's what gets our motors running in the mornings. We dropped by the Filling Station, at 7420 Johnson Drive, to explore their space. Now, we know there are some of you who skip this potent potable, but for us it's part of our normal routine. We are members of a collection of groups that focus on restaurants, dining establishments, coffee shops, and various other eateries. These are carry over from our previous restaurant blog, but they still offer plenty of information about spots we should visit around the Kansas City metro area. The past few years have seen a surge in new [...]

Third Space Coffee – Bonner Springs Knows Coffee

By |2019-12-12T12:38:33-06:00December 15th, 2017|Breakfast, Coffee Shops, Kansas City, KC Dining, Social Sips|

This year we decided to make Bonner Springs our Shop Small Saturday destination. This was planned as research for our final article of 2017 for Visit KCK. We arrived before the shops opened, which gave us the opportunity to check out Third Space Coffee located at 226 Oak Street. We had to park a couple blocks away, since they had the street blocked off for a special shopping event. As we made our way to the restaurant, we passed a variety of vendors who were setting up tables of crafts to sell. […]

Like many, Crystal and I are coffee lovers. When we heard that a new shop opened on the east end of Kansas City, Kansas we were eager to try it out. We stopped by Splitlog Coffee, at 548 Central Avenue, to check out their digs. Our timing was perfect, as we had the pleasure of a bright, sunny Saturday morning. […]

Fly To Mockingbird Lounge

By |2018-11-22T06:01:05-06:00August 11th, 2017|Kansas City, KC Dining, Social Sips|

There’s a new bird in town, and it’s the Mockingbird Lounge. We had been seeing some chatter on our social media feeds about this place, and finally had a chance to try it out. This new addition to downtown Kansas City, Kansas is located at 204 Orchard Street. It was a little out of our normal route for downtown, but not too hard to find. The building is located near the original Bethany Hospital site, but the area is now primarily residential. […]

How to Beat The Heat At Yard House

Our visit to Yard House at the Legends Shopping Center was timed to take advantage of two things; Happy Hour specials, and their shady patio. Enjoying a Happy Hour in Village West is something that wasn’t available a few years ago. These days it is becoming a little more common, and we hope its popularity grows. […]

Enjoying Happy Hour at Paulo and Bill

We love a good Happy Hour, and are always searching for new places. A visit to Paulo and Bill, located at 16501 Midland Drive in Shawnee, was an opportunity to check out their specialty menu. We hadn’t been to this location in quite some time, so we were eager to see what changes had taken place. […]
