SATURDAY, JUNE 21 TRAVBUDDY MEETUP Kansas City, Here I Come
KC Sightseeing Tour
LibertyMemorial & World War IMuseum
Lunch at Classic Cup
NelsonAtkinsMuseum of Art
The same 13 that finished up Friday began Saturday morning by car pooling for a short sight-seeing trip around Kansas City.
Our first stop was the LibertyMemorial & World War IMuseum. While there, Sal and Erin became TravBuddy husband and wife; Melanie was the maid of honor and Will was best man.
Next, we went to the Country Club Plaza.
Gorgeous gals & JC Nichols fountain
After taking over J.C. Nichol’s fountain and taking over the Plaza sculptures, we had brunch at the Classic Cup.
After filling our stomachs, we made one last visit to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Then, most TravBuddies cleaned up back at the hotel while Tim and Shawn picked up bicycles for Sunday’s KC bike tour.

We enjoyed a private room in the cellar. The Classic Cup provided an open bar with a good wine selection and café/cappuccino. Mark (TheOriginalMC) and I provided music entertainment.
Then, we walked down to the Granfalloon Bar & Grill. On the way, we posed in front of a Plaza fountain for our group photo. Wouldn’t you know, you can’t see any of the fountain.The Granfalloon gave us the Fireside Room to ourselves. Some of us shot pool while others gabbed up a storm. Later, Yadi (Lima, Peru) was awarded furthest TravBuddy to attend.
James-Eric-Tim-Bill stick 'em out
Then Melanie was officially crowned “Queen CW”. She knighted the first four members of her round table: James, Sal, Will and RJ.
Feeling frisky, we traveled back to the downtown Power & Light District for an encore.
I took several snapshots on Thursday and Friday. However, I decided to play host on Saturday and forego taking pics. I want to thank each of the above TravBuddies for letting me steal some of their photos to illustrate the night’s festivities J
