Tastes Of The Town Tuesday

 30 replies

On Sunday, due to the decent weather and my itch for grilling, I made another batch of wings for the family — I didn’t tell Tony because he would have told me to put it in “Man Time Mondays” and 1) I have my own feature to write, thank you, and 2) my recipe is proprietary.

Needless to say, after months of oven-cooking and stovetop prep, getting some good ol’ grilling in was good for the soul. I even switched up my recipe a tad and caught the family by surprise. Speaking of surprises …

Sunday was also the last day of baseball for the Royals in Surprise, Arizona. Admittedly, I have been a bit behind this year, but I hear Dozier is knocking it out of the park.

Was that cliche? That was probably cliche …

Another Surprise That Took Me Off Guard

Did you know Michael Buble sang more than Christmas music? Neither did I …

One of the cool aspects of my job is that I get to go to a ton of interesting places and witness the inner workings. Last week I stopped by the Sprint Center and was able to see them setting all of this up for the famed singer. It was pretty sweet to see it all come together.

I still wouldn’t buy his album, but it was a fascinating visual to say the least.

On A Much Sadder Note …

I try to always keep things lighthearted, being a blog dedicated to entertainment, but it would be hard to talk about our city and surrounding areas without mentioning the elephant in the room:

Most of you are already aware of the events taking place, so I’ll spare the word space. Just keep in mind that if you have any time or resources to help lend a hand where you can, there are countless families that could use the assistance. Red Cross has a hotline to call should you feel moved to donate: 1-844-278-8555.

There is a sliver of silver lining though:

Gettin’ Shwifty At Shorty’s

Bringing things back into a more upbeat light … many moons ago — seriously, it feels like months — Tony and I decided to run by a hidden gem in the Strawberry Hill area. The place is called “Shorty’s Pizza,” and it’s probably one of the cooler places I’ve ever been in Kansas City.

The establishment is run by John Stoner, he of “cat-body-suit” fame, and he (and his daughter) were gracious enough to chat with us a bit about his food, fandom, and phenomenal atmosphere. Check it out below (and, ya know, subscribe …)!

You can base your opinion on their accuracy, fandom, other — uh — reasons, whatever you want. For me, I’m going with Gary for his Chiefs fanaticism. Anyone who listens to 810’s Border Patrol will note that he is a fantastic presence during the morning radio talk show.

Plus he has cool dogs.

You know the drill — much talking of the town in the comments below!

Flooding? I was warning about that a while back, wish I’d been wrong. But I was seeing the snow on the ground, not seeing pictures of same. Big difference.

I am just glad that we didn’t see heavy rains early on. Bad as this may be, that would’ve made things far worse.

Anyone know an honest HVAC repairman in town?

My wife is being taken for a ride, and HVAC isn’t my strong suit. I’m pretty sure I have a bad outdoor temperature sensor but it theoretically could be the wire or thermostat. It absolutely is NOT a small drip by the furnace.

I have a guy who’s sort of a general contractor but he’s done HVAC stuff for me before and does a good job for a reasonable price. His website says he specializes in electrical stuff but he’s done pretty much everything for me.

Alas. It was signed sealed and delivered before I got home. Needed a temperature sensor, got one of those. And a circuit board for the heat pump. And a thermostat

Sigh

Another good thing about Gary is… he abandoned the Abandoned Place when the spaghetti started to hit the fan. I think he was one of those who saw that things there were less-than-desirable with the way Pol Pete and Aly Trostalin were running things, and once he made sure he was still set for some cash flow, he got the heck outta Dodge.

As I learned in the military, that’s the best time to blame things on him.
