This week: Bobby Sauder from Karma Vision
Psychedelic-pop six-piece Karma Vision just returned from a tour, and on Friday Lawrence will welcome the band home at the Replay. 10 p.m. 21-plus. $3. Netherfriends and Fire in the Churchyard support. We recently asked frontman Bobby Sauder about what he likes, and stuff.
A few days ago, Esquire posted the harrowing story of a group of survivors from the May 22 tornado that destroyed Joplin and killed 160. This group of mostly strangers were brought together that day at a Fastrip convenience store and sought shelter in a beer cooler. The video above was shot by Isaac Duncan inside the cooler.
The story is brilliant, must-read journalism. Me telling you about it won't do it justice. Click here to read it.
"I'll go to the City Market or an Asian market. I'll find something I've never seen before, some odd vegetable. And then Google is my best friend. I wouldn't have been as wonderful a chef if not for Google. After that, I know I like to eat, so I'm going to make it good," Van Horn says.
Yesterday, chef Van Horn talked about starting out as a personal chef and tomorrow, she'll have five tips on how to launch your own food truck.
Looks like a protest against the Smart Pawn shop, which sells guns and ammo at 63rd and Troost, is being planned for 5 p.m. October 10.
Miles Bonny posted the above image on his blog, adding that the info was taken from an e-mail from an employee of the Catholic Diocese of Kansas City/St. Joseph. Tony's Kansas City posted a photo of the place with big letters spelling out "guns & ammo." Apparently, the place used to be a Hollywood Video.
The pawn shop is near three schools (Hogan Preparatory Academy, St. Peter’s and Benjamin Banneker Charter Academy of Technology). I can't stop shaking my head.
Walking to work today, I spotted a unicorn drawn in chalk on the steps of Bartle Hall. How nice, I thought.
Then and I got to the top of the stairs ...
If you happened to be downtown Monday night and noticed a bunch of kids running around the Sprint Center in lucha masks and grown men carrying championship belts, then you'd stumbled upon WWE's Monday Night Raw. The Power & Light District got some shots on the show, which was broadcast live on the USA Network.
If you missed the show, WWE has posted just about all of it on YouTube. In the video above, "Straight Edge Superstar" CM Punk wrestles former WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio in the show's main event, which ends with a lot of steel chair swinging.
Relive the rest of Raw after the jump.
A friend who grills peaches as often as meat asked if any of the big boys are really good at the end-of-the-meal options. Off the top of my head, I can't even think of a proper dessert (beyond a cellophane-wrapped brownie) offered at a barbecue joint. Have you ever had the urge for something sweet after a barbecue meal and if so, have any of the local spots brought a plate worth eating to the table?
Original Story (September 26): One person is dead, and police are looking for a silver Mitsubishi Eclipse after a bizarre dispute on Highway 69.
Overland Park police say 22-year-old Marquise Williams Jr. was killed in a car crash at 119th Street and Highway 69 early Sunday after being involved in a dispute with the occupants of the Eclipse. Both vehicles were traveling southbound on Highway 69 when the vehicle that Williams was riding in lost control and crashed into a pole south of 119th Street.
Around town, Boulevard Brewery's Bob's 47 is on plenty of taps and the caramel, malty Oktoberfest beer is definitely a keeper. But I'm still looking for a fall beer to get through to winter. What's everyone got in their fridge or on their wish list?
The wedding ring says no, but the eyes and the drink say yes!
I prefer my creme de violette shaken by muscly arms.
You meant today!
