Stuff We Like: Downtown Diner (With Pie!); LPL Announces Opening Date for New Library; Dead Girls Play Adventureland Soundtrack (Again)

Is there some sort of pie revolution underway in LFK?  The news of an impending downtown diner--the Ladybird Cafe--burst onto the scene yesterday, along with the news that Buffalo Bob's would be closing after 37 years (so you better grab a final Fat Tire Amber Ale right now, if you catch our reference!)  Ladybird will take over the Dynamite Saloon space at Bob's.

Ladybird will be operated by some of the masterminds of 715, and feature pies from their current piemaker, Mrs. Dodge.  And these pies will actually be affordable! ($2.99 a slice, or so we've been told).  Now if they just dish up some reasonably priced comfort food (ideally meatloaf, and maybe fries with gravy) we'll be very happy indeed!

Look at this gorgeous strawberry rhubarb pie that was recently dished up at 715 (photo from 715 FB page).


Our friends at Lawrence Public Library have officially announced their grand opening date.  It'll be July 26!  And what happens to Free Borders after that?  Perhaps a grocery store?? (wishful thinking).

Here's a recent-ish photo of the new building taking shape (photo from the LPL Facebook page):


One of our favorite all-time Replay shows was when the Dead Girls played the Adventureland soundtrack on Halloween, many moons ago.  Now they're bringing it back. Not to LFK, sadly, but to Alamo KC tomorrow night at an Adventureland screening that's part of the Middle of the Map film component.  This will be awesome!
