    There are plenty of good places to stay in KC. Poster before me is an idiot. Stay at a hotel on the Country Club Plaza. Eat and shop as much as you want. Go to a Royals game. They suck, but Kaufmann is a fun stadium. I haven't been to Worlds of Fun or Oceans of fun.

    Eat at Oklahoma Joe's, and check out some of the food blogs. There are so many great places to eat here... Just find stuff that people rave about and you'll love it.

    We are going to the game on Sunday. I've been a closet Twins fan for several years...not sure why.

    Country Club Plaza, huh? I'll check it out online. Appreciate the tip CTeam...

    If you like music... Old 97's and Old Crow Medicine Show are playin together on Saturday at Crossroads. You can eat at Grinders (Diners Drive-Ins and Dives has been there) and catch what should be an awesome show. I'll be there. Not sure what time the game is Saturday.

    Ahh well good deal. There's a pretty good BBQ place out there. There's also a Corner Cafe at 70 and 470. They have amazing food if you're looking for a lunch place.

    I'm an idiot? Lighten up, it's the internet. Also, get your sarcasm detector checked. I think it's low on fluid.

    I used to live in Kansas City (well, the metro). Tons of great places to eat. I never was a big fan of Worlds of Fun. But kids would love it, I'm sure.

    The best times I had in Missouri, were always outside of KC.

    Maybe it is you who should check your sarcasm meter.

    And KC is great if you leave the suburbs that are just like every other set of suburbs in the country.
