Five years ago, the BBC was documenting Kansas City's lack of bicycle commuters. Now it's celebrating the "Midwest renaissance" of a city recapturing its swinging past. As BBC Travel noted yesterday:

Today, this border-straddling city with a history of jazz, barbecue and booze is hoping that a new crop of cocktail and craft beer bars, farm-to-table restaurants and modern art spaces will return this once “sinful” town to being a capital of culture and help reclaim the city’s status as the “Paris of the Plains.”

The piece is a tour through Kansas City's bars and restaurants — highlighting the craft cocktails and farm-to-table ethos of the city. And while the BBC maintains that we have a long way to go to get back to our sinful past of the Pendergast era, it will be a lot of fun to try.
