KC Agenda: Jan/Feb 2010

Happy New Year, Kansas City!!

It’s been a cold, snowy couple weeks, hasn’t it? I can’t say I’m all that impressed with snow removal in downtown KC, but I’m fortunate enough to be able to work from home during inclement weather, so I’m doing my best to stay warm and toasty.

I owe you a couple of posts, including a recap of my local pre-holiday shopping extravaganza, but I wanted to drop in and let you know what’s on my radar for this month. Although January is typically slow and just a wee bit dull, upcoming events prove that Kansas City knows how to start a year off right.

So, just between you and me? I love food. A lot. Although I’m taking Fergie’s advice and am “up in the gym just workin’ on my fitness,” I’ll also be circulating some of KC’s best restaurants during a week-long dining celebration. And because I love a good party, I’ll fork over the money for a ticket to one of the Nelson-Atkins’ biggest events of the year, even though it poses the toughest question of all: What will I wear?

Don’t fret, my dears — January doesn’t get to have all the fun. Start February off right with some mental and visual stimulation courtesy of KC-area designers, a week that includes challenges, lectures, casual gatherings, a scavenger hunt and one heck of a wrap party.

Hope to see you out and about! And until then, stay warm!
