More Christmas Ideas

In keeping with the theme of a recent tweet from @mysideofthebar in regards to shopping local I thought I would add a few more ideas.

Gift Cards: Gift cards, in my opinion, are one of the best gifts you can give to your Usual Suspects as it allows them to do a little shopping, dining, or imbibing on their own time. Also depending on which card you choose you can offer them options they had not tried or thought of before. So here are a few local (some may also be nation wide) options.

The Fogo De Chao: This is one of Central Patti's and my favorite hangouts. The bar is great with one of the greatest mixoloigist in the KC area presiding. The food is excellent and the dining experience is an adventure in itself.

Tom Fooleries: A great bar and great bar food, remember the Peanut Butter Cheese Burger?

Kellys Westport Inn: This establishment in housed in the oldest building in Kansas City, is the home of the famous Joe's Pizza, and has a cigar friendly enclosed roof top bar. What more could you want?

Fidel's Cigar Shop: This is Central Patti's and my "home base" most weekends and many week nights. A great selection of cigars and an excellent and most important knowledgeable staff. The smoking lounge also has a complete compliments of interesting individuals that make for some great conversation.

California Pizza Kitchen: This place is an excellent stop on your bar hopping adventures featuring an excellent menu and probably one of the best kept secrets in their cedar plank salmon. They also have a full bar and one great desert menu.

World Market: If you are luck enough to have one in your area you have an excellent place to grab some gifts from Glass Ware to food from all over the world, to furniture, to a huge wine selection.

This should be more than enough to give you some ideas for easy shopping.
