I'll be in Kansas City next week for the Monday and Tuesday games. Who else is going?

Might try to make it out for the Tuesday night game... will be down in the Kansas City area working Monday-Wednesday, but my schedule doesn't look great for Monday night, so Tuesday will probably be my best chance. Hoping it works out!

Ugh. I'm at Northwestern for 2 weeks starting tomorrow. Which is good, my record at Kauffman is atrocious.

Have fun. KC is great. If you go to the right places.

I'm hitting the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the Harry S. Truman Library. Is there anything else I should see?

In downtown KC, there is a retro sign for Western Auto that is way cool if you like that kind of stuff. I thought it was a good picture. The College Basketball HOF was in the Sprint Center downtown last year when I was there. I'm not sure if it moved.

The area that is a couple of miles south of downtown called The Plaza (IIRC) was nice.

As for dining, a good friend of mine from work who is a KC native loves Jack Stack's BBQ. He brought me two bottles of the original sauce. I've eaten there with him and the food was outstanding.

I know some people on this board hate the University of Kansas, but KU is just 40 miles west of KC. Allen Fieldhouse is a shrine if you like college hoops. And I do.
