Kansas City Shuffle
Helllloooooo! You may have heard :) it was my birthday on Sunday.
I get excited about road trips, therefore, Zach and I decided to spend Saturday in Kansas City!
We have both been to KC a few times, so we had a list of our favorites in mind. This makes the third winter in a row that I have spent time in this city. Zach surprised me on my first birthday with him by whisking me to KC for the day for Oklahoma Joe's (now Joe's Kansas City BBQ). I joined my friends for a little Galentine's Day trip last winter.
When looking to add to our favorites, we had a hard time finding any sort of write up of good shops and restaurants in KC. So, I am taking this opportunity to jot down a few stops you should be sure to make if you're in town.
The city is very spread out,so you get a ton of different types of neighborhoods and areas, but it's not entirely a walking friendly city, so we did a lot of jumping in and out of our little car.
(the chicest brunch with fresh flowers)
I personally feel a bit of NYC sitting on the cafe chairs eating eggs benedict and a fresh mimosa :)
(for hip Mexican cuisine)
We are talking new ceviche daily, amazing margs, and reallllyyyyy good tacos and burritos
(for the yummiest treats)
I had The Dolly: Sheep Milk Cheese Custard, Root Beer Glaze, Fresh Basil AMAZE
Ale House (for beer)
Julep (for cocktails)
(for Oddly Correct coffee and pretty mugs)

Online Shops Out of KC:
Apparently, they used to have a brick and mortar store in downtown Kansas City. Zach and I found the shop and were sad to see it CLEARED OUT. It has moved to online only, but I would say worth the browse through their thoughtfully curated items. Catbird Jewelry and Imogene + Willie Jeans, to name a couple....
I had the pleasure of meeting the artist/ cute mama for a few quick moments in the craziest of situations. She is incredibly kind and left these with me. I cannot WAIT to frame this little guy in the spring.
