After a brief stint opening up Cleaver & Cork, the Power & Light District's sprawling meat lover's restaurant, in the former Maker's Mark space, bartender Andrew Olsen is departing for new turf.

Tonight, Olsen begins his first shift at chefs Colby and Megan Garreltses' prestigious Bluestem restaurant. If it seems like he's hopping around, Olsen insists that hasn't been his goal.

Barrier decided to take up the cause herself - with the help of a dedicated team - and over the last few months has been working to launch the first event for the Kansas City chapter of CreativeMornings. On Friday, June 19, CreativeMornings KC makes its debut.
