In the case of the very endearing little family-operated barbecue joint at 3613 Broadway, C. Withers Catering and Restaurant, the owner Cardell Withers decided that it was time to seek new challenges after selling modestly priced smoked meats and excellent side dishes for several years. He hopes to return to food service again — in some capacity — soon.
In the meantime, some interesting things are shaking on this stretch of Broadway. The OutaBounds Sports Bar & Grill now has new owners and is serving food again beginning each evening at 4 p.m. "We've got sandwiches, grilled items, appetizers, and chips and salsa," said one bartender. "All kinds of good stuff."
Don't worry if you can't find Whitney Davison's two-month-old Pie Bakery right away. The former librarian opened her baking business last November in a former Pilates studio at 12635 Metcalf — it's in the same shopping center as House of Denmark, Chosun Korean Barbecue, and Shahrazade Cafe & Market — but she hasn't been able to afford a real illuminated sign yet. There is a banner, but frankly, you can get pie-eyed looking for it. Just follow the fragrance of baking pie crust.
Davison checked out of her library career last year after realizing that her passion was pies, not research. Interestingly enough, she's from Derby, Kansas — it's a small hamlet outside Wichita — and her signature pie is a New Orleans-style pie made from chocolate, walnuts and bourbon that sounds like the famous "Derby Pie" (a recipe now exclusively made by Kearns Kitchens in Kentucky), but tastes completely differently.
Since opening, Davison keeps her top sellers in constant supply (apple, cherry, a "magic lemon cake pie," a gooey brownie deluxe pie, derby pie) with rotating specials and a long list of specialty pies that she bakes to order. Davison also sells fresh challah bread, thickly iced cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls.
If Missouri hadn't left the Big 12 for the SEC, this dreadful video should have gotten 'em kicked out. Fifth Down, did you really have to give KU fans more ammunition? Hang your heads, Antlers.
"We want to have something for everyone, and that includes people that have been dragged to a Thai restaurant," Brillhart says.
For those unsure about what to order, Sweet Siam offers Thai BBQ chicken served with shrimp fried rice. Lovers of Thai food are more likely to be drawn in by the curries, pad Thai, pad prik or stir-fry dishes.
The case of Lisa Irwin — a baby who has now been missing for a quarter of her 13-month life — will officially have that moment this Friday. That's when, as the Associated Press reports, Jeremy Irwin and Deborah Bradley appear alongside attorney Joe Tacopina and private investigator Bill Stanton on the Dr. Phil show.
Tonight at 7 p.m., the Flying Saucer Draught Emporium (101 E. 13th St.) is tapping a cask. Bell's calls Hopslam Ale a Double India Pale Ale; you'll call it delicious. But be forewarned: Behind the fruity, hoppy wonder beer is an alcohol by volume of 10 percent. Charlie Hooper's, Waldo Pizza's Tap Room and the Martin City Brewing Co. all had Bell's Hopslam on tap this past weekend. Has anybody had a chance to try this year's batch?
Crook was reportedly killed when someone walked up to the vehicle he was sitting in and opened fire.
The Australian's Global Gourmet Tony Perrottet recounts his visit to Arthur Bryant's and Jack Stack Fiorella's in a piece about his recent visit to Kansas City, Missouri. While Perrottet seems hellbent on placing the barbecue joints he visits in the state of Kansas, the rest of his research is a delightful road map into how a barbecue ingenue experiences a visit to the meat mecca that is this city.
