If the idea of another predictable restaurant outing has you contemplating a long-term fast, head to Bar Natasha (1911 Main, 816-472-5300) tonight between 5 and 9 p.m. to sample the fare of more than a dozen local restaurants at the Kansas City Originals' seventh-annual Urban Picnic
. The KC Originals, an association of more than 50 area restaurants, works to promote unique Kansas City flavors. In addition to the smorgasbord put on by Pierpont's, Em Chamas, Café Trio, Kokopelli and other kitchens, picnickers can enjoy wine, beer and entertainment by the Bar Natasha Singers and participate in live and silent auctions. Items that Bar Natasha co-owner Missy Koonce will auction off include gift certificates for meals and dining events at area restaurants, bottles of wine and artwork. Tickets cost $55 at the door or $45 in advance at KC Originals' member restaurants; see kcoriginals.com
for more information.
