KC's New Power and Light District

Kevin and I finally had chance to checkout KC's newest hippest area - the Kansas City Power and Light District, also known as Live Block. It's directly across from the Sprint Center. It rocks. Really great bars, restaurants.

There is a big open area that has outdoor seating and you can get your drinks and walk around. Very cool. Unfortunately everyone is checking it out so it's pretty busy. We wanted to eat at one of the new places but it was a 2 hour wait, so we decided to eat at Ted's which is part of the P&L district, but is a chain. It's still great food.

We then headed over for drinks, watched part of the Royals game on the big outdoor TV, then headed up to Howl at the Moon, a dueling piano bar. They fly in different piano players each week.

My cubemate did a really great video blog that really captures the essence of what it's all about.

We met a very gay guy named Jason who was there with his roommate - who I think was underage because she said she snuck in through the smoker's area - his "friend" who didn't seem interested in him at all by the end of the night, and the girl's boyfriend.

Jason seemed to think Kevin and I were fabulous because we had been married for 7 years and have two kids, yet were out at a bar. Turns out he graduated from high school the year we got married. So I'm pretty sure fabulous = old in his head. He kept trying to remember our names, but he was so drunk that it got to be really funny to me and Kevin.

Ken and Carla!

Kevin and Karen!

Double K!


He hugged us when we left and worried he would never see us again.

Probably not I said.
