But when you have a job probing for weaknesses on the mission to improve quality, you're likely to tick a few people off. Brisbane did so with his column on Saturday when he questioned the Gray Lady shifting more and more resources to DealBook, a section within The Times' business coverage that started out as a newsletter.
The 11-story building has been deemed too irregular for lawyers. According to a report in today's Kansas City Star, Polsinelli's general contractor will gingerly dismantle Safdie's creation in order to preserve the parking garage that was built underneath it. A boutique hotel that was part of the original concept for the West Edge development will also be saved.
After dropping a standard Snickers bar in the container of liquid nitrogen, there was only one small problem: The fingers on his gloves kept freezing as he tried to scoop it out. Contrast that with the latest procrastination website making the rounds — Scandybars (high-resolution scans of the cross-sections of popular candy bars) — and you can see that office equipment is often used for purposes that the manufacturers likely never intended. Have you ever appropriated (misappropriated) electronics for gustatory purposes?
Fox 4 reported last night that the mayor's 23-year-old son is accused of hitting a 22-year-old woman from Lee's Summit during a fight at the bar. In an interview with the TV station, the woman claimed that a friend of the mayor's son told her that Kyle James punched her. That friend was an unnamed member of the Kansas City Chiefs, according to the woman.
Those fabulously creative folks at Powell Gardens came up with a great idea for an outdoor grilling competition: a fruit and vegetable Grill Off to be held on the grounds of the nonprofit botanical garden Saturday, September 10. It's going to be a big culinary day for Powell Gardens (1609 N.W. U.S. Highway 50) beginning at 10:30 a.m., when four local chefs — Carter Holton, pastry chef at Le Fou Frog; Blair Cobbett of Genessee Royale Bistro; chef-owner Michael Foust of the Farmhouse; and Jane Zieha, Blue Bird Bistro owner — each presents a 30-minute demonstration of grilling with fruits and vegetables.
Jill Draper, marketing associate for Powell Gardens, says she's still looking for participants to compete in the “Fruit & Veggie Grill Off,” which begins at 1:30 p.m. at Powell Gardens. It's all about grilling meatless dishes, but meat isn't going to be excluded from the ingredient lists: "Meat can be used as seasoning,” Draper says. "Bacon-wrapped asparagus, for example. But it can’t be the main ingredient.”
The legendary P.T. would have turned 201 last month (July 5, to be exact), but in the festive world of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, the brazen Barnum's 200th birthday just goes on and on.
The circus will be hosting a cake-decorating contest — in the spirit of ol' man Barnum — this Wednesday in the Grand Hall of Union Station (30 West Pershing Road), beginning at 11:45 a.m. Three local pastry businesses will be represented, hoping to win 100 tickets to the circus for their favorite children's charity. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus runs September 7-11 at Sprint Center.
FEMA announced that it will divert money that had been intended for long-term rebuilding efforts in Joplin and other cities to assist victims of Hurricane Irene, which ravaged the East Coast over the weekend, but some aid will continue to be sent to Joplin as the city recovers from the May 22 tornado that wrecked roughly a third of the city and killed more than 100 people.
Long before Anthony Bourdain or Paula Deen, there were local celebrity chefs. And one of Kansas City’s best-known culinary stars was Bonnie Winston.
On the surface, she was an unlikely candidate for kitchen stardom. The lithe Detroit native hadn’t gone to cooking school; she had a master’s degree in personnel psychology from Columbia University. “I don’t know what I thought I was going to do with that degree,” Winston says. “My first job was at Macy’s, where I learned 100 different ways to shoplift merchandise.”
In the vibrant, Mad Men era of New York City’s advertising industry, Winston was offered a job as a receptionist at Manhattan’s hottest agency, Doyle Dane Bernbach. “There was a period of time before that job was available, so I was living in a tiny apartment in the West Village and I started cooking. Before that, I had only a passing interest in cooking because my maternal grandmother — a divine cook — lived with us when I was growing up and the kitchen was her domain. But on my own, I developed an interest in the art of cooking.”
"It's a cold day for pontooning."
