In the autumn of 2008, I was given the opportunity to put on a pair of stain-resistant linen gloves so I could carefully investigate the different historical items in the Kansas City Museum's collection of vintage menus -- mostly from the Union Station restaurants and the actual railroad dining cars -- and asked to present a lecture as part of the organization's Community Curator series.  

When another Community Curator couldn't make the scheduled June date, the Kansas City Museum decided to bring me back -- like an old TV sitcom rerun -- to give the lecture again tomorrow: Tuesday, June 22, at 6 p.m. in Union Station. There is no charge for the event. There isn't any food, either, but we can certainly talk about it.
