What to do and where to go?

Will be in town for the weekend with friends. Looking for good BBQ and different restaurants. What bars/restaurants have a good beer selection? Will be going to the BB HOF and possibly a Royals/Red Sox game. Any other areas/events reccomended or going on that a local wiould know about?

Thank you

Arthur Bryant's or Gates are most popular for BBQ. Top rated is Oklahoma Joe's.

Blanc Burgers on the Plaza is highly rated for the burgers and beer selections.

Friday night probably the best choice for Royals as it is buck night + fireworks after the game.

Check KC.com or Pitch.com for other events. Lots going on in KC and Lawrence this weekend.

Getting good tickets to tonight's Royals - Red Sox game could be a challenge. I recommend getting them early in the day as the will-call lines will be very long. Lots of Sox fans in the KC area who turn out for these games, plus with the fireworks and buck night, it will be close to a full house.

If you want a place to hang out after the game or on Saturday night, you might also try the Power and Light District, which is in the area of the Sprint Center. Burger joints, Gordon Biersch Brewery and other bar options are all popular.

Jack Stack is my favorite BBQ - get the burnt ends. Three locations in KC - the one downtown in the freight house district is the coolest. Other good restaurants: Bluestem (fancy), Pizza Bella (crossroads district - wood fired pizzas and don't miss the Brussels sprouts), Westport Cafe and Bar (bistro) and Justus Drugstore (upscale in the Northland).

If you are into beer try to take a tour of Boulevard. Beer Kitchen in Westport has good selections and it's in a fun, walkable neighborhood.
