I have benefited from the wisdom of this board and the Chicago one for the past few years, and thank you all. Now, I have a more specific need: a gaggle of friends are flying into KC, which I have been praising for the past year. We'll likely be a party of 12-15 on Friday and Sat, and I'm hoping to think of a couple great spots that are loud and fun before we head out for the night and act unlike our age.
Thought Blanc Burger sounded perfect (never been there) but they don't take reservations. Thought La Bodega would be perfect, but they only have 5PM and 10PM.
Also had thoughts of Room 39, Vinino, and Majestic, don't think they can swing the Blue Stem/1924 Main price point.
I've never been to Sarah's on Grand, Jasper's, or Carmen's.
We'll probably try Pizza Bella (call ahead option) on Sat.
I live around the Plaza/Westport and would welcome anything reasonably near-by...
Any thoughts on places I haven't mentioned, or the ones I haven't been to for a group of 30-somethings who want to enjoy each other's company in a more festive place?
