Hello, 2-3 of us live in NYC and are thinking about a foodie trip to Kansas City during the long weekend in January! A large part of why we chose KC is the amazing time we had stuffing ourselves with BBQ in Austin and Lockhart (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/9048...) and since KC is also considered to be a mecca for BBQ, this seemed like the logical next destination :)
KC experts, in addition to BBQ, what else does it do better than NYC? We plan to come down for about 4-5 days and frankly, we'll need a break in the middle from all that delicious BBQ.
We'll have a car so driving to nearby cities is also something that we can consider if it's for something truly delicious!
