MCI BBQ DO X - May 1-3, 2015

It's that time of year again!! Honestly, I can't believe we are already on our 10 year anniversary of this DO. It seems like yesterday that we had the first one.

I am going to keep things pretty much the same, HOWEVER, if there is a group consensus on adding a new spot to the DO, then I am all for that.


Based off our traditional schedule:

-------------------------------------------------------------
Friday, May 1- 5pm-8:15pm (Happy Hour), Dinner at 8:15pm (or thereabouts)

Fiorella's Jack Stack (FreightHouse, Crossroads Art District)
www.jackstackbbq.com

- This is our traditional kickoff dinner, preceded by an extended happy hour while we wait for people to filter in. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, so just bring an empty stomach!

This will also be First Fridays at the Crossroads Arts District. THe Art Galleries will be open.


-------------------------------------------------------------
Saturday, May 2 - 11am until we fall into a food coma. As usual, we'll be winging it after Joe's Kansas City (formerly Oklahoma Joe's).

Joe's Kansas City (inside the Diamond Shamrock gas station)--Mission Road---This one is on the Kansas side.
www.oklahomajoesbbq.com
- Get here early (suggest 10:45am - before it opens) because this place fills up fast! A favorite is the Z-Man and the onion rings.

Danny Edward's
www.dannyedwardsblvdbbq.com
- We walked away pretty impressed with the brisket two years ago.

LC's
- Easily located by the billowing clouds of smoke. The burnt ends are especially good here.

Arthur Bryant's
www.arthurbryantsbbq.com
- Another favorite. Try the sausage, brisket, and/or pulled pork.

Gates BBQ (the Original) on Brooklyn Avenue
www.gatesbbq.com
- "Hi, May I Help You?" - prepare to be yelled at when you walk in. Some people are fans of Gates, but my friends and I walked away several times, unimpressed.

- Foo's Frozen Custard
http://www.foosfabulousfrozencustard...best_2010.html
- It doesn't matter if you're stuffed by now or not. Frozen custard just fills in the cracks!

In between BBQ joints, many of us will be buying Christopher Elbow chocolates, going to Harrah's to try our luck at craps, or visiting one of many museums located in throughout the city. The airline museum at the downtown airport is one of my favorites as well.

Sunday, May 3, 2014

At your leisure. We usually don't add any BBQ to the Sunday schedule as most are recovering from the past two days.

------------------------------------------------

If anyone would like to try a new spot, suggest it and we'll try the best to accommodate. Those of you who have been to this DO before know that it's just a relaxed weekend filled with food porn aka KC BBQ.

Consider me likely, though I'll probably only make a couple of the Saturday stops before heading to SGF to see my parents.

Not yet 100% confirmed, but very close! For the last few years I have had other obligations on the first weekend of May, but I that won't be the case this year. Flights booked (via refundable points on WN); hoping I can make it!

I missed it the first time around! Thanks for the bump.

I'm in.

For those interested in baseball, the Royals play at home against the Tigers that weekend.

You can move me to the "confirmed" column - I don't get into MCI until 7:45, so I will be a little late to Jack Stack.
