Welcome back to another edition of Tastes of the Town! It’s always fun to check out new things going on in this wonderful city of ours. With that being said, let’s take a look at what’s coming up this week.
Technology is changing at a rapid pace. It’s quite intriguing to think about what or where the next big life changing invention will come from. Who knows? It may even come from our very own city.

Then get set to join us for Kansas City’s family-friendly festival of invention and creativity >> https://t.co/w6eagEKe5Q pic.twitter.com/vZnHJB51vu— Union Station KC (@UnionStationKC) June 17, 2019
On Saturday and Sunday, you can get a chance to watch people create new inventions that range from urban farming to electronic gadgets. This family-friendly event at the Union Station brings people from all walks of life. Locals such as scientists, crafters, and hackers show the fun in creating the next big thing.
You never know what can spark your creativity and get you inspired, so go on down and check it out this weekend!
Dressed to the Nines
The Negro Leagues don’t get nearly enough credit for the level of exciting baseball that was played. The museum on 18th and vine captures those memories. It is a very special experience that I think everyone should check out at least once.
The Kansas City Monarchs were quite popular in the day. In fact, African American churches would change the service time so people could attend the game. Fans would leave church “dressed to the nines” and go to watch their Monarchs play.
Thus a new tradition was born in 2013. The Negro League Baseball Museum teamed up with a group of Royals fans to reinvigorate that feeling of putting on your Sunday best. The Royals, or should I say the Monarchs, will be playing the Minnesota Twins on Sunday at 1:15 p.m.
Who says there is nothing fun going on in the offseason? Just check out our website of course! Or I suppose, you could watch The Franchise, a new inside look at the Chiefs Kingdom.
The show hit the airwaves on May 29th, and the pilot episode racked up more than a quarter of a million viewers. In the coming weeks, fans will finally get a look at the offseason programs in St. Joseph.
Be sure to watch the Franchise Wednesdays at 6 p.m. on the Kansas City Chiefs YouTube page as well as Facebook, especially if you are dying for some more content. Or, you know, swing by Arrowhead Guys and watch it with all your favorite friends.
Weekly Debate Fire Starter
We all have our favorite go-to fast food chains. For me, its Taco Bell. It’s also no secret that our quarterback loves Whataburger. In a tweet responding to JJ Watt, Mahomes stated his desire to get one in Kansas City.
I’m down as long as i can get one in KC https://t.co/uVLHCQxfjN— Patrick Mahomes II (@PatrickMahomes) June 14, 2019
The hype of a potential Whataburger in the city has been discussed before, and it would be nice to try something you’ve been missing out on. But how far would you be willing to go? Would you be willing to give up your favorite fast food chain for a Whataburger in Kansas City? We ask the hard hitting questions here, so let us know in the comments what you think!
