The Hispanic Heritage Month Festival may be off your radar unless you're plugged into the university scene, but we have it on good authority that Thursday's event at Five Bar and Tables downtown is going to be stellar, featuring "some of the finest players in the KC Jazz and Latin scene." If you can't afford Wynton Marsalis at the Lied tonight, console yourself with this FREE show! Find more info via the FB event page here.
Also, we just received word that God has indeed saved the Queen! Queen Lizzy's re-opens at the VFW this Friday. Let's hope it's more successful than that dingy little breakfast buffet that's been in there recently. Get the full details on their hours here. Looks like they'll be serving breakfast on weekends, so there will be at least two places in town serving English breakfast for you wankers (if it's still going on at the new Legends sports bar...we don't actually know). The FB page claims the menu is somewhere on the page, but we'll be damned if we can spot it.
In the meantime, eat some fish down at the 2nd Annual Abe and Jake's Catfish Fry (with food from Terrebone) on Thursday. We attended last year's event--which is a benefit for Friends of the Kaw--and found it suitably delicious. Details here.
And what else do we like? Oh, let's say...for the second week in a row... the Royals! Don't blow it, Royals!
