My bad! I was so busy with getting ready for & going on our vacation that I didn't schedule one. BTW, Canada was great! But we are glad to be home with our big dogs, and cats. I will be scheduling the July one very soon.

From Erin in the Real World

Hey KC Bloggers -
It's about time we get together again, and let's support another local charity while we catch up.
On Friday, April 24, Gilda’s Club Kansas City is bringing The Second City Touring Company’s latest hit show, “Deface the Nation” to town. Proceeds from the comedy-improv show will help open Gilda’s Club Kansas City. Does Second City sound familiar? That's because you know a ton of their alumni: Mike Myers, Steve Carell, Joan Rivers, and Tina Fey, just to name a few. And this year, the show will be hosted by former KC resident and SNL actor, Jason Sudeikis. Jason is participating in honor of his mother, Kathy Sudeikis, who is a breast cancer survivor. Jason isn't just on SNL, he's also a Shawnee Mission West grad - '94, represent!
Tickets are $50 and include the improv show and a cast party with decadent desserts, champagne and a Roasterie coffee bar. When I say decadent, I mean ridiculously tasty off the diet and forget about Lent amazing. We're talking Christopher Elbow, Andre's, Panache, the list goes on.
There's also going to be a raffle for two tickets to SNL. These tickets are totally choice and hard to come by. Raffle tickets are $20/1 or $100/6. You don't have to be present to win!
With support from this event, Gilda’s Club Kansas City hopes to open their doors as soon as possible. More than 60,000 people in the KC metro area living with cancer and nearly every person in the metro area is affected. Gilda’s Club Kansas City will provide free support and networking groups, lectures, workshops and social events in a homelike setting for anyone touched by cancer, including children.
Giggle with Gilda
7p.m. - Improv show featuring Second City Touring Company & Jason Sudeikis from SNL
After the show - desserts, coffee, champagne
Tickets: $50 at
Raffle tickets for 2 tix to SNL - $20 for 1, $100 for 6,
If you can't come, but still want to help out you can still donate online. Or, if you or your company is interested in being a sponsor, DM me on Twitter

Recap of the blogger gathering at the KC Wizards Opening game. We started of with 5 of us meeting for Waldo Pizza. Then we headed out & parked at Nebraska Furniture & hopped on the school bus to the stadium. No, not the "little bus". Even though it was a tight squeeze for the taller people. A very quick ride! Barely had time to twitter! Five of us who carpooled together hit the gate at the same time:

Gone Mild (our good friend Dan & his lovely wife)
Beneath the Ginko (my studly hubby)
My Spyder Web (my personal blog)

Before the game started I went to visit with the Toronto teams' fans. I said a big "Bonjour Salut la visit" . I welcomed them to the Midwest, told them where in Canada I was from ( 4 hours north of Toronto). Then told them to have a good time & that they could drink us all under the table anyway.

Our fav librarian had problems with her print out of her ticket & had to go to a different line. It took forever!!!! It seems the computer crashed during the process. Needless to say we were happy to see her once she was able to join us. Soon afterwards we were joined by two more bloggers & their dates.

Keep on Truckin'... ( Gringa & her charming date El Mexican)
Abso-freaking-lutely Feisty (Ms Feisty & her "Shiny" date Eric) Ask Eric or my hubby what "shiny" means!

@vivid13 & girlfriend @painfulblue (Tweeters) were out too but sat elsewhere. I wished they had joined all of us. Since we were having so much fun.

OMG! Did we have a good time. The KC Wizards dragon tried to eat Feisty's head. My hubby made some comment about her getting head. Later during the game someone said something about a player & "bad head". Gringa said she's never heard that before! Then El Mexican was passing his nuts around. Loved his nuts! LOL! Hubby & Eric hit it off once they found out that they both are Firefly fans. That took a whole aaa maybe a minute for them to bond. Poor Feisty was having to duck between the two browncoats. The game was close. But Canada ruled the game. We decided not to wait for the shuttle bus & walked to the car. Even that was fun as we were all talking. Sorry if you missed it. We had a great time!

Guest Post

I am Kelli Oliver George, (I go by "Cagey) and I write at Rancid Raves. Last year, my husband and his partners built a website called Foodiebytes that allows for searchable menus in 15 cities with over 150,000 menus available. Now, you no longer have to resort to digging through dog-eared takeout menus in your desk drawer or sifting through endless restaurants links. Foodiebytes is a quick, convenient way to search for restaurants that serve your favorite foods because you can actually search for individual menu items, as opposed to just restaurants or cuisines.

I am trying to connect with local bloggers here in Kansas City because we are launching a piece on where we will have a spot for featured bloggers. Additionally, the bloggers who add the Foodiebytes badge to their own site will be highlighted on the Kansas City page itself in a rotating manner.

Please email me ( if this is something that you are interested in doing or if you have any questions or comments about our site.
