Fiesta Azteca, the lively Mexican spot that won "Best Mexican Restaurant" honors in last year's Pitch "Best of Kansas City" issue, is leaving Raytown next month to move into bigger quarters in Lee's Summit.
Owner Andres Orozco has had great success over the last seven years in the small location at 7534 Raytown Road -- too much success, in fact. His business finally outgrew his dining room.

If you've ever had an issue with Joshua William Maylee, run. Run and hide. That's what police in central Missouri are telling folks as a manhunt is on for Maylee, who is wanted in connection with a triple homicide.
Much like St. Patrick's Day and New Year's Eve, Halloween weekend promises long lines for drinks and toilets, people of all ages who don't get out much behaving badly, shitty parking spots and enough secondhand embarrassment to last you until Thanksgiving.
It's easy enough to skip all that, though. Tomorrow night, R Bar hosts the Black Crack Revue, a cosmic jazz ensemble headed by Rev. Dwight Frizzell. He describes the show as a "tantraliscious orgone-accumulating holographic sonic worm-holing hullabaloo."
Raise your hand if you miss Jose Guillen. Anyone? No. OK. The former Kansas City's Royals new club, the San Francisco Giants, made it to the World Series. But the outfielder isn't on the playoff roster, which the Giants claimed was due to a neck injury. Or could it be that the feds are investigating a link between Guillen and shipments of performance-enhancing drugs?
Ah, yeah, the New York Times reports.
The best part of carving a jack-o'-lantern is cleaning out the pumpkin
guts -- cutting a hole in the top, reaching in and pulling out all that
slimy, slimy goodness. Very gruesome. Very Halloween.
Plus, then you have pumpkin seeds, which make a delicious
Halloween snack. There's the standard method of roasting them with salt
and oil. Or you can try one of Chow's 10 Ways to Spice Up Pumpkin
Why couldn't Kris Kobach just have kept his mouth shut?
The Republican candidate for Secretary of State has been harping about voter fraud for the last several months, making claims that illegal immigrants and dead people are voting and swaying elections. And just when the media begins to seriously look into his wild-sounding theories, Kobach goes and negates any momentum he could have reaped.
How would you feel about getting baby carrots while you were out trick-or-treating? What if they were scary carrots?
bag. They're a treat perhaps only Bunnicula could love. You might as
well put a sign on your house that reads: "Please egg us." This may be
worse than giving out pennies or a toothbrushes. The only thing saving Scarrots is that they come with glow-in-the-dark temporary tattoos.

Halloween is over. The kids didn't come in the numbers you expected. And now you've got a ton of leftover candy.
So if you're a wine lover, what are you to do? You could avoid the problem altogether and hand out those wax-coated mini babybel cheeses. Better yet, you could realize that leftover candy isn't a bad problem to have, uncork a few bottles and have yourself a tasting. Slashfood and Holidash both have some suggestions for pairing wine and candy.
