Non-Tourist Activities?

Couple in their mid-30's, no children, coming to Kansas City for the weekend. We are frequent visiters and have done the toursit activities. What are the locals doing on the weekend? We enjoyed the wandering the Farmers Market at Rivermarket last time. Anyone have suggestions?

Which weekend are you coming? Do you enjoy local food and drinks? If so, there are some awesome restaurants that you can attend and then go out afterwards.

My suggestion would be dinner at Extra Virgin, The Rieger, Westside Local, or Le Fou Frog and then make a reservation in advance (2-3 days) for Manifesto. Then maybe hit up a few spots for drinks after.

If you want live music, check out The Blue Room, Knuckleheads, Riot Room, Gusto, or the Beaumont.

If you want to get into Manifesto, I'd make a reservation today since they are usually full on the weekends.

During the day you might check out a couple wineries. Here's a beautiful spot in Independence, MO:

The Mutual Musicians Foundation might be a fun time in the Jazz District, not very touristy and it's open until the wee hours of the morning.
