    My brother-in-law loved the chicken gizzards there (ugh).  Seems like it was on 103rd street and something - State Line?  I think it's been closed for a while.

    I lived in KC for a few years when I was in my early 20's and back when it used to be really dumpy in Midtown we'd go to a jazz joint that was around 34th and Main.  There was no sign anywhere, you just had to look for the little cruddy place with a red door.  Incredible jazz inside, and they served scotch in dirty glasses way past curfew.  Then we'd go to the Westin and catch Oleta Adam's last show, then to a nasty little diner on Wornall to get some food to soak up all the booze.  The city was so different then but damn, it was fun.

    •  Yup... it was 103rd (4+ / 0-)

      but I don't remember the cross street...  I think it was between State Line and Wornall... but it has been years...

      I lived in Brookside, worked at Crowne Plaza, and hung out in Westport and at some of the jazz places that were AMAZING...  it was a great city to be in your 20s and 30s.  

      I have not been back in a long time, but I'm going back for sure now...

      If for nothing else, for Lamar's donuts and Arthur Bryant's.  
      Thanks for the trip down memory lane...
