Celebrate along with Kellys & McCoys this weekend.
  • Celebrate along with Kelly's & McCoy's this weekend.
It's not summer until you've been to a block party. McCoy's Public House (4057 Pennsylvania) and Kelly's (500 Westport Road) are hoping to start a tradition in Westport with their first annual block party, which this year celebrates Kelly's 65th anniversary and McCoy's 15th anniversary. The party kicks off at 5 p.m. Sunday, on Pennsylvania Avenue in Westport between the two bars. Jeff Jenkins and Lost Wax perform live. The entrance fee is $5, and a Jameson tasting is available for an extra $5 from 5 to 8 p.m.

We all have hopes of one day striking it rich through a sudden change of fortune. The Hollywood Casino at Kansas Speedway can make you believe with its Epic Buffet, which has a seafood special (oysters on the half shell, crab cakes, fried clam strips, breaded scallops and snow crab legs) from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, May 28, and Sunday, June 10; and from 4 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 27. The crab legs and seafood special costs $29.99.

Peachwave is celebrating its official Grand Opening (the store opened earlier this month) in Lee's Summit on Saturday with $1 16-oz. green cups of frozen yogurt. The store is at 1309 N.E. Douglas and is open between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Custard, beer and free fireworks? It must be Celebration at the Station. The program Sunday at Union Station featuring the Kansas City Symphony begins at 7:30 p.m. Bring your own picnic and a blanket a few hours before to get a prime spot on the lawn. The grounds open at 3 p.m.

Howl at the Moon in the Power & Light District has a very different kind of Memorial Day bash with happy hour from 7 to 10 p.m. There's no cover at the dueling piano bar. Bud Lights are $3, and Firefly cocktails are $4.

What have you got on tap this weekend?
