Summertime in KC: For the FoodieJune 4, 2017
Kansas City has my heart for a multitude of reasons, but the scrumptious food that fills our city takes the cake! The summer is particularly great thanks to exciting food and drink events that flock to our town. So, if you’re like me and you love to try new tastes and treats, then you’re in for a great summer! Take a break from your work week and feast upon these appetizing affairs: Boulevardia: This pop-up party is coming to the Stockyards District this summer! On June 16-17, this is the perfect way to spend Father’s Day weekend. From beer brewed just for Boulevardia to unique food vendors and musical performances, this event truly is the cure for all that ales you. A hand-picked selection of local food trucks can be found in their Food Truck Alley. You can also snack your way through the weekend at their Taps & Tastes Experience: enjoy their featured craft beers and delicious bites uniquely created to compliment the drafts. Is the sound of all of this tingling your taste buds? Then buy a ticket now! Food Truck Friday: I am SO excited that this event is back. Delicious Kansas City food trucks will debut at different locations each Friday this summer! Some are strictly open for lunch while other Fridays the trucks are open for a delightful dinner! Catch the food trucks for lunch on June 16th at Union Cemetery! Keep an eye out for their other upcoming locations. From mouthwatering barbecue to flavorful flatbread, be sure to savor your Fridays at the food trucks! Wine Walk on Delaware: This event recurs once a month now through October! The Wine Walk takes you through the charming history and atmosphere of Delaware Street in Kansas City. You get to know locally owned businesses in the KC area while discovering wonderful wine along the way! Catch the walk every third Saturday of the month. This event is for the 21+ crowd, and is such a pleasant way to spend an evening! For more information on walk dates or tickets, click here. KC Nanobrew Festival: This is the only event in Kansas City strictly dedicated to local home brewing! If you are a beer enthusiast, this is for you. The event is dawning on its eighth year, and is definitely all it is hopped up to be. Experience all of the brewing talent that surrounds you in KC on June 24th. Admission includes a full-size souvenir glass, food voucher, and unlimited beer tasting! Attendance is capped based on the capacity of the venue and number of beers available on tap, so get your tickets now! Is the foodie part of you excited now? I can’t wait for these enticing events to take place! If events and crowds don’t interest you as much, Kansas City is also full of amazing weekly happy hours. Wind down after a long day and situate yourself on a patio to take in the summer breeze over an ice cold drink and delicious appetizers. I suggest you try Jax Fish House, where you can enjoy happy hour all week long, or catch the sunset on the rooftop view from AEP while you munch on tasty Thai food!
