Have you been to Kansas City? Well, my first ever non-sporting-event visit was this weekend and I loved it. Ryan and I drove down to visit a college friend and celebrate Ryan’s weekend. All in all, it was a weekend filled with good food, good beer and great company.
Friday started with some presents for Ryan. Even though he got his big present earlier in the year, I still had some smaller presents to give him, plus those from family as well.
One of them was a tackle box filled with some lures, but also some “fishing” candy. The idea was shared with me by a friend via Pinterest, and it was quite fun to put together. Plus, you can’t go wrong with Swedish Fish.
I also sported Ryan’s new sunglasses during the drive. They’re from Blenders Eyewear and they’re awesome!
The drive was pretty long, so once we picked up a friend in Des Moines, I cuddled with Boone in the back. He was pretty comfortable.
Once we got there, it was time to eat! We went to a BBQ restaurant called Q39. Delicious! I’m not a vegetable person, but these were amazing. I couldn’t stop raving about them.
And how do you cap off a birthday night celebration? The best way we know how to: with some Big Buck Hunter action.
Saturday morning I planned on going on a run, but the sidewalks were still pretty icy, so instead I went on a walk around the neighborhood, picked up Boone and took him on a walk as well, while the boys got some more Zzzs.
Once everybody was all ready, we went to the Boulevard Brewing Co to do a tour. Started and made right in Kansas City, it was a must. The tour itself is pretty popular and actually kinda fun.
Plus, you get a couple of samples at then end. Not too shabby.
The floors were quite amazing as well.
Mandatory brewery selfie!
Before our drive Sunday, we had brunch at Tomfooleries, soooo goood! I also started my next book, El Alquimista (The Alchemist) by Paulo Coehlo.
Then it was a long drive back to finish the night watching the Oscars and dominate the last week of February.
Have a good week!
