4th of July Pub Crawl

This was a first for Central Patti and I. We usually waste the day sitting by the pool at MySideOfTheBarATL, however this year we had something else in mind.

We started the day with a charity 4 mile walk/run for the Children's Shriner's Hospital here in KC.

Which would have been a whole lot more fun if it had not rained 2 1/2 inches while we participated. We both managed to finish and did enjoy our root-beer float at the end despite the pelting rain.

Once we both showered and had a Bloody Mary we were off to our first stop,  Seasons 52 on the KC Plaza. This has long been a favorite stop for us and this day was no different.

Central Patti enjoyed a glass of wine and I tried the Grapefruit Negroni.


We also enjoyed some Lobster Flatbread and Southern Shrimp and Grits, both absolutely fantastic.

Next it was on to Coopers Hawk for a few more drinks.

Then on to  Westport to the home away from home of MySideOfTheBars. Kelly's Westport Inn for a Cigar and a few beers. 

The Tobacpack has always enjoyed Kelly's Smoking deck and it is a great place to hangout with other smokers. 

Now tired for walking we Ubered to the Power and Light district.

We choose Johnny's Tavern as it is a great place to drink outside and people watch.

Now is where the day really got interesting.

KC has a new street car system and we jumped aboard to head to the River Market.

A great system and while the entire route is currently only about 2 miles long, still a nice mode of transportation.

We arrived at the River Market about the time the 4th festival grounds opened so we hopped aboard a bus for the short ride across the river to the festival grounds.

And while no 4th of July Celebration is complete with out a hot dog we had to grab a couple.

We did start to get a little worried as all we could find was beer for a beverage, that is until we found the Patron Booth.

Great seats, pretty girls and lots of people watching. Oh, I forgot to mention the Tequila Cocktails :)

We even got to go behind the bar

We had a great day and as you can see the fireworks were the least of the day.
