So me and the lady went to KC for the weekend. She thinks that it was a long planned romantic getaway for just the two of us, while in actuality it was a long planned romantic getaway/opportunity to see the Chiefs 1st pre-season game.
We got into town about 1:00pm, dropped off all the stuff at the hotel and then went and found the nearest Gates BBQ. I had the short ribs (very tasty, kudos to whoever recommended these!). After stuffing our faces we went to the Hotel to get ready for the game. (I had dropped a hint that the Chiefs were going to be playing there and she bought us tickets!) However upon getting ready to go we realized several important things; a) she was missing a ticket b) neither of us had a jacket c) there is no sunlight in KC, seriously I don't think I saw it once. With these facts in hand we resigned ourselves to watch the game from the hotel. And then the power went out at the hotel. It was off for only about 40 minutes but needless to say I missed the entire first quarter (this guy was pissed). We were able to watch the rest of the game uninterrupted and without complaint, other that us losing of course. To end the day I got the brilliant idea "lets go to the Casino". This was really my bad, given how the day had gone I should have known not to risk losing my semi-hard earned money, but I did it anyway. An hour later as she walked out 30$ richer and me 80$ poorer (f*cking Blackjack) I became aware of how dumb that idea was.
The second day (Sunday) was actually pretty good. Went to the KC Wizards game, went to the Jazz Museum at 18th and Vine (which all true music lovers should go experience). Then I took the lady out to eat at Makers Mark in the Power and Light District. A 30$ steak and 60$ worth of bourbon later and I was feeling gooooood.
On Monday we slept in late, made a quick trip to Oklahoma Joes (the one in the gas station) ate way to much, went back and bought 2lbs of different meats to bring back to Omaha and eat. I finally saw the sun on the way back, thus confirming my theory that it was only like that because I was there! But seriously, you guys are great hosts. Everyone there was super friendly, the food was fantastic, and I didn't get my ass kicked even though I wore a Nebraska shirt everywhere I went. Hopefully my next trip down will be even better, maybe next time I'll be able to actually see the stadium!
Thanks to you all, and long live the Chiefs!
