I'm coming into town for the Chiefs/Vikings game on 10/2 (great year to plan this trip, lol), and looking for some suggestions on things to do, and places to eat. We'll be in town all day Saturday, and Sunday night after the game.

As far as food goes, looking for BBQ, of course. Anything else unique of note would be welcome, too.

Any good breweries or brewpubs in town worth visiting (Boulevard is booked)?

Tour the Boulevard Brewery. Eat at Oklahoma Joe's. Go to P&L district Saturday night.

Wait, are there kids involved?

Thanks. No kids involved, and Blvd tours are all full.

What's in the P&L district that we should hit? I'm not familiar with that area at all, but I'll look into it...

P&L is an kind of like a huge atrium that has bars opening out to it, as well as restaurants and bars that you can go in. I like Howl at the Moon, and I know I've been in the Rock Bar twice, but I don't really remember much from either time. Oh, and the bar that plays 80's and 90's pop music, the Shark Bar. That's Bearcat's favorite. :D

Visit the area south of 85th, north of 103rd, west of Holmes, and east of State Line. It's pretty nice.

Did they require any reading comprehension during the tour?

i think the Nelson art gallery and the WW1 musuem are a Must see-two of the Best in the world and very cheap.

You could try 75th Street Brew Co. (or whatever it's called). I've only been there once, but the Angus burger was good. I got the samplers of their beers. Not bad.

Isn't that the place that has the famous raspberry brew? I believe me and a lady friend went there when I was living in KC -- if so, very cool spot.

Ok Joe's is closed Sunday. Just keep that in mind if you were thinking of that.

don't forget to go by a local hy-vee store and pick up your complimentary brown paper bags to wear for the game.

Actually, I was making a joke about a supposed high crime area. A quick search on the internet said that was a bad zone. However, now that I look deeper, it doesn't seem bad at all.

Go to Worlds Of Fun Halloween Haunt,numerous Halloween attractions if you're into that kind of thing.

Here's one of the attractions they call BloodShed....

I don't know. There was one on 7 Hwy in Blue Springs and there was one on Noland Rd that we used to eat at.

There is a 7-11 at 89th and Wornall that gets hit almost daily. I think that is why it has high crime...and it is where "Da Hood" meets "Mission Hills"

Cool things to do in KC besides Chiefs at Arrowhead:
It all depends on how much time you have, but the highlights would be:

1) Nelson Art Gallery, and the Kemper Gallery about a block away on the campus of the KC Art Institute.

2) Just another couple blocks to the west is the Plaza, shopping/food/people watching/occasional unruly flash mobs of black teenagers.

3) Bars/Fun in Westport, which is about a mile north of the plaza. Power and Light District downtown is OK, but the food isn't very good there.

4) Riverboat Casinos (Harrah's, Isle of Capri, Station) if you're into gambling.

5) If you like American History: WWI Museum and Union Station near Crown Center, Truman Library in Independence, Money Museum at the Federal Reserve Bank, Ft. Osage East of Independence, Ft. Leavenworth near the airport, Steamboat Arabia Museum (1855 steamboat they dug up) in River Market downtown.

6) BBQ: Gates, Bryants, Jack Stack, Oklahoma Joe's or LCs. Pick one. Pig out.

7) Basketball: Sprint Center has the college basketball Hall of Fame. This is a very cool place, and woefully overlooked by the locals.

Have fun, spend lots of $$$. We need it.

Thanks for the suggestions! I was able to sneak us into a Boulevard tour on Saturday, so looking forward to that.

Anything interesting/fun to do on a Sunday night? Not sure what types of things would be open...

I was actually just looking at that as a possible Saturday night plan. Worth going to?

The fans will probably attend 1 more home game in mass. Just so they can show their displeasure. Selling spent D & C batteries could make some serious cash. IT could be a very ugly crowd

There is vendor food for sale, live music and fireworks. It's always better if you're associated with, or a guest of a team that is competing.

It's all about expectations. Many people think there is BBQ around everywhere to sample for free, and that's not the case. You'll see individuals roaming around and individual teams sectioning off their areas and throwing parties.

It's over by 11pm, so there is plenty of time to hit the town afterwards.

I wouldn't say it's a must do, I've actually never been on a Saturday, we go on Friday and always have a good time. If you decide to go, I'd advise catching one of the many shuttles coming in and out as parking down there can be a bitch.

The Blvd tour is a can't lose. Doing both in one day would be very Kansas City.
