KC Trip

Ryan and I went to Kansas City over Labor Day weekend to visit my aunt!  Ryan had never been before and we had a great time!  When we first arrived, Tonja took us to this really famous BBQ place called Oklahoma Joe's (changing it's name soon to Joe's BBQ).  It was attached to a gas station and we had to wait for almost an hour, but it was AWESOME!
We spent the rest of the afternoon/evening exploring a cute little neighborhood and then relaxing at home to gear up for our fun Saturday!

On Saturday morning, we had a great breakfast in preparation for a marathon drinking day.  Then we headed to Boulevard Brewery for a tour and some drinks! :)
Favorite beers this time include the Ginger-Lemon Radler, Hibiscus Gose, and of course, the 80-acre Hoppy Wheat.  We followed up the brewery tour with more beer!  We went to Westport to the oldest building in Kansas City, which house Kelly's Irish Pub!  We watched the Cyclones lose and I drank a really big beer.
Later on, Ryan and I spent a little time together exploring.  We checked out a bomb ice cream shop and then we explored the WWI monument, with great views of the city.
Saturday evening, we enjoyed some local Mexican and a bar called Side Pocket which housed what seemed like 1,000 pool tables, dart boards, shuffle board...really cool place to end our trip in KC.
I took Tonja to Raygun for the first time. :)
All in all, we had an awesome time!  I love visiting family and I love visiting cool cities and I love getting away with my husband...so it was a win, win, win for me!  I hope you all had great Labor Day weekends as well!
