Home field advantage

Excited to see Kansas City highlighted in this Citi commercial that just aired during The Open on NBC:

Just one of the many great things happening in this little big city!


I haven’t lived in Kansas City since 2000, but have family and many friends there, so I visit frequently. That’s why I can say, with much confidence, that Daniel Mueller, Digital Editor at Sun Times Network, is…


He recently posted a list of the Top Ten Mexican Restaurants in Kansas City and did not include my personal favorite:

margaritas kansas city

When I return to Kansas City, a trip to Margarita’s is always at the top of my list. I love their chips and salsa, their nachos, their daily specials, and signature margaritas, too. Plus, the general vibe of the place is just casual and comfortable and feels like home.

Don’t get me wrong — there are some great Mexican restaurants on Daniel’s list. But if a friend or visitor to Kansas City asked me where to go, I’d still point them to the place on Southwest Boulevard…

…with the flood line on the wall.

Feeling conflicted about Valentine’s Day?

Add some bitter to your sweet.


These less-than-complimentary cookies are available in Kansas City at Sasha’s Baking Company.

I love them so much.

Thanks for sharing, Chuck! All thoughts of a normal Valentine’s Day just went out the door. But what can I say? I’m a hot mess.

Sheep schtick

It has been 22 years since The Silence of the Lambs won the Oscar for Best Picture.

Feeling old?

silenceThen come to New York City and see Silence: The Musical, the way funny parody of that award-winning horror story now playing on Broadway.

Clarisse is there…Dr. Lector, too.  And the wannabe transgender, his little dog and the senator’s daughter, ‘putting the lotion in the basket.’

But the lambs?

Well, they aren’t so silent in this version. They sing.  They dance.  They move set pieces.

Cast-of-Silence-The-Musical-650x433They even ‘clomp’ out a musical number using their little lamb hooves.  I had a major flashback to doing something similar during  a show at Martin City Melodrama & Vaudeville Company in Kansas City…

Just off-Broadway.

Hey every bunny!

Did you hear? It’s National Rabbit Week.

I know this because my Kansas City vet sent me an email alert.

They are having a special on bunny vet care this week — 15 percent off! All those Easter bunny owners, take note.

I am clearly entertained by this. A bunny alert? Seems like a hare-brain idea to me.

Misspelling intended.
