On the way we stopped in Columbia, MO for some tasty pierogies. Then stumbled on the tree lighting ceremony at Crown Center. A bit of wandering while looking for Jack Stack took us into Union Station and allow the wonderful walking tubes.
I loved the history in Union Station and all of the placards telling of its construction, decline, and reconstruction. I also adored Jack Stack’s BBQ. A great strawberry shandy was followed by perfect jalapeno cornbread, fried mushrooms, baked beans (and I HATE baked beans, but I fought Avi for half of them), cole slaw, ribs, bbq chicken, and pork burnt ends. It was just scrumptious. If you go to Kansas City? Eat there. Seriously. Eat there.
