Howling at the Friday TB Pre-Party

 

FRIDAY, JUNE 20 PRE-PARTY

Downtown KC New Power & Light District

Raglan Road Irish Pub
170 E 14th St
www.raglanroadirishpub.com
(816)
994-9700

We started Friday’s fun by gathering by taking over a section of the Pub. Most of us decided to have lunch before heading across the street.

3:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Sprint Center College Basketball Experience
& National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame
1401 Grand Blvd
www.collegebasketballexperience.com

We strolled over to the Sprint Center College Basketball Experience, a one-of-a-kind interactive place to pretend you’re Kareem Abul Jabbar (Melanie’s hero) or Doctor J (instead of Doctor Sal).

5:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
Howl at the Moon
1334 Grand Blvd
www.howlatthemoon.com
(816)
471-4695

Next, we helped open Howl at the Moon. There’s no way to adequately describe the marvelous mayhem that took place at this dueling piano bar. Suffice to say, you’ll just have to look at the pics J

7:45 p.m.
Vinino Bistro
1329 Grand Blvd
www.vininokc.com
(816)
221-8466

After an interesting Italian dinner, we play it by ear and explored the Power & Light District.
