Kansas City Mini Vacay

Road trip! We really wanted to do something fun for our anniversary this year, so we decided to go on a weekend getaway up to Kansas City and visit our pals Ryan and Rachel. The last time Todd really went shopping was about two years ago (!!!) when he first joined MUTEMATH, and I had finally convinced him that another round of purchases was necessary. I also told him if I had to see him in “that” shirt (meaning any of his shirts) one more time, I was going to punch him in the mouth. I think that was my most persuasive point.

We left here Saturday morning and got to KC just in time to eat lunch before shopping. I had requested pizza for lunch (because I’m not a complete moron that was going to miss eating pizza at every possible chance), and Ryan suggested that we give Spin Neapolitan Pizza a try. I’m not kidding when I say that this was the best pizza I’ve had in years, and I was completely blown away by how incredibly delicious it was- and we just got a plain old pepperoni! Having traveled to Italy for a month during an art trip in college, I’ve had my fair share of real pizza, and the pie at Spin did not dissapoint.

Once we were sufficiently stuffed, we rolled on over to the main shopping district in KC called The Plaza, and proceeded to spend hours perusing the racks and shopping-spreed to our heart’s content. By the way, I was very pleased to see that cats are very on trend at the moment as I saw their furry little faces all over the stores. Heaven, except I never did find one that I was able to purrrchace. I’ll let that one sink in.

The only thing that eventually stopped our afternoon spree was the time, so we headed out to meet with our buddies for dinner at a place called Grahm and Dun. First of all, they had a lovely patio at the restaurant that was packed with people enjoying the perfect summer Saturday evening, and second of all, we had two of the best drinks we’ve had in a while. One was called “The Ginger Rogers” and was kind of like a ginger mojito, and the other was called the “D Cup” and tasted like a summery lemon St. Germain martini. We have immediate plans to figure both of the recipes out as soon as possible- so obsessed! We also got to sample homemade chips that had really interesting gourmet ketchups (blood orange and vanilla bean!).

After a fun packed Saturday, we spent an easy-breezy Sunday with our friends and went for a late brunch and swam in their pool for a while. Super chill and relaxing, just the way we like it.

I couldn’t get that pizza from Spin off my mind, so I made a special request full of begging and pouty lips to go back there for dinner on Sunday night and my wish was granted! I got the same exact pizza as the day before, and it was just as delicious the second time around.

All in all, our 36 hour trip felt like much longer and we had an unforgettable time with good friends and great pizza. Who could ask for anything more? Oh right, a cat shirt in my size. Damn…

    Looks like a fun trip together! Are those truffle fries? We have them at a restaurant here on the East Coast, and I have to workout killing plenty of calories before and after. Yum!

    We love Spin! Have you eaten at Pizza 51? It’s one of my favorite pizza spots in the area, near the Plaza. It’s sooo good. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay! It’s a pretty great city. πŸ™‚
