We couldn't have asked for a lovelier first day in Kansas City. It's more humid here than Boulder and Denver, but not quite as hot. It's lush; the neighborhoods bend and amble into one another. Fountains spurt. It reminds me in some ways of Norfolk, where I grew up. A lot of the same trees, grass, bends in the road, and yes--humidity. Today we met with a fantastic shop called Colfax
. It shares a building with mash handmade
and Boomerang Vintage
, both equally hip and inviting. It's not to be missed. Quite the power corner. After wrapping up an order with Terry at Colfax (look for it in mid-October, KC fans!), we moseyed back home, let the dog out, and washed up for our first Kansas City BBQ dinner!
O. M. G., folks. So great. Any BBQ spots we shouldn't miss while we're here, folks? We'll close this one off with a couple of non-sequiturs. Here's Betsy learning that her mom and sister are going to get her a pair of boots she LOVED at Two Sole Sisters
in Boulder: And here's the cute oven clock at our host's place in KC. Just perfect. ***Song of the moment: Phantom Punch
