Welcome back to another edition of Tastes of the Town! Like always, there’s plenty going on around the city, it’s all about where you look. Let’s take a look at what’s happening in the Kingdom.
FIFA Watch Party
Partnered with the Kansas City 2026 World Cup bid, the Power and Light District is hosting free Women’s World Cup watch parties throughout the months of June and July. The watch parties will be at KC Live! and No Other Pub.
The first three games are scheduled as follows:
June 11th at 2p.m. – USA vs. Thailand
June 16th at 11a.m. – USA vs. Chile
June 20th at 2p.m. – USA vs. Sweden
I myself have been to some of these watch parties in the past, and they are a lot of fun, even for the least interested soccer fan. It’s definitely worth experiencing at least once.
Another awesome pop-up party is in our midst! Boulevardia is a two-day street festival that will be taking place June 14-15th in the Stockyards District.
Aside from the obviously fantastic beer from the Boulevard Brewing Company, there’s also food sampling, music, and great entertainment for the whole family. For more information or tickets, click here.
Arrowhead Guys BBQ
Thanks to Anthony Stratton, I met some of the great people of Arrowhead Guys that I get the pleasure of working with. He invited us to his home on Sunday for some drinks and awesome food. When I say awesome food, that’s a complete understatement. Not that I’m trying to get brownie points or anything.
Though I may be new to the site, these guys made me feel right at home. I couldn’t be more honored to have the opportunity of working alongside everyone in the AG community. So shout out to all of you!
Weekly Debate Fire Starter
So staying on topic with the delicious BBQ chef Tony graced us with, we have a little score to settle. My colleague Dave claims he makes the best wings around. Shortly after saying that, he was talking a little trash about Tony’s ribs. Need Evidence? I give you, exhibit A.
Weird way to say “decent,” but okay https://t.co/wHTrxY7H7c— Dave (@AnyGivenSunDave) June 10, 2019
And here’s exhibit B:

This leads to me a question that certainly won’t ease any tension here. Who do you guys think wins in a face-off? Dave’s wings or Tony’s ribs?
