UA walks into a dog park, parlor, shack, and winery...what ensues is a great weekend! A handful of us had Good Friday off, so we grabbed our pups and headed to Bar K.
It also happened to be Newman’s first birthday! Can you believe how much he’s grown since we first met him?
Bar K is awesome. It is a big park where the pups can run around and play. They have amazing attendants that help monitor and clean up, so you are free to enjoy a drink, relax inside or out, and your pup can have a great time too! Thank goodness Newman brought yellow bandanas for all of his friends. It made the pack easier to spot!
While the pups were playing, the adults were too. We had one minor mishap when Kristen got taken out by a rogue wrestling match. Luckily, she’s okay-nothing a little tequila and ice can’t fix!
Part 2 of our Good Friday birthday bonanza was an outing to celebrate Stephanie’s upcoming birthday. KC Celebration!
We headed to a new place in town called Parlor. It’s one of those fancy food halls that are popping up everywhere.
The cocktails were really good. Many of us opted for the Lady Killer-a dangerous cocktail that tasted like strawberry lemonade. They also had some other cocktails with fun names-Hold me closer Tony Danza was another fave…obviously you must sing that order!!
They have so many food choices. Mother Clucker for some delicious Nashville-style chicken and Karbon for some Yucatan style street tacos were the crowd favorites.
After our quick photo shoot and trying all of the foods, we head to Double Shift Brewery for brews and balloon volleyball. Turns out that adults like balloons too! Especially when they glow in the dark….
Last stop-because why not? International House of Beer! Fun fact-Kristi and Stephanie climbed Mt Kilimanjaro years ago and found this Tusker beer. It is hard to find in KC, so they were super happy to find one here. They are getting a new shipment soon, so go try it for yourself!!
Most people recover after a late night out….not us! We were up bright and early to celebrate our friend Krystal’s bachelorette party. The day started with brunch at The Shack. This is also where many of us learned how to spell her future last name! Przybylo…it’s hard to place the y’s!!
Brunch = breakfast + drinks!!
After breakfast this crew loaded up a trolley and heads to Paola KS (we didn’t know where it was either) for some winery exploring!
First stop was the New Lancaster General Store. They have boozy slushies and of course wine…and all of the knickknacks you could ever want or need!
Gloves, cat ears, and a sash…perfect Bachelorette outfit! This girl looks ready to be married!
We had so much fun on the trolley and at the wineries! The KS wine is questionable, but we found some favorites at every winery! Nighthawk Winery was packed, but we were welcomed and treated to a tasting. They even came out to our table so we could soak up the sun!
Krystal and Lacey even got to go out on a horseback ride through the winery. There is no sobriety check to ride horses… Thank you Isinglass Estate Vineyard & Winery for the great entertainment, cool atmosphere, and great service. This winery is a family run winery where everyone is welcome!
This pic is from the last winery…we made it! Somerset Winery was the last stop and by far my favorite. The best wines (and not just because it was our 4th winery…well, maybe??) and Cindy, the owner, is so great!
We didn’t want the party to end, so we tailgated the parking lot when we got back to KC. Doesn’t everyone do tailgate empty parking lots?
Big adventures coming up….stay tuned!! Make sure you follow us on our new Instagram (@unfilteredadventurekc) and Snapchat (unfilteredadven) to see what we are up to!
