Wichita Wind Surge Ballgame

Posted on June 25, 2022 by under Things to Do.    

I finally got a chance to check out a Wind Surge baseball game (part of it anyway) earlier this week. Brian went a couple of times already. One time he was at the Coors Light Party Porch with Jenni and Adam and then another time he was in general admission with my Rotary club.

Here are some pictures they took at the Coors Light Party Porch, in case you are wondering what it’s like up there.

Here are some pictures from the Fidelity Bank Bravely Onward Club.

Brian said the food was better here because all they got were burgers and hotdogs at the Coors Light Party Porch. And no dessert, only cookies.

Untitled

Besides getting fed, the best part of the ballgame was running into Danielle Dillon and Crystal Torres, both of whom I hadn’t seen in ages.

Untitled

We had a great time at the ballpark despite the weather not being ideal.

Until next time, GNG.

Fancy Group Dinner at the Brass Onion

Posted on June 24, 2022 by under Food and Drink, Travel.    

Our group decided to meet up at Brass Onion at the Prairiefire shopping district in Overland Park. The food was very good but also quite expensive. As in, I spent almost $100 on my own dinner tab. I literally took a picture of my tab because I was convinced Brian would never believe that it only fed one person.

Good thing Ryan and I won our division and made some money that weekend because we spent almost every bit of it on dinner that night. LOL.

Untitled

Here are some pictures of our food..

Definitely enjoyed the Brass Onion but definitely wouldn’t be able to eat there all the time. But I am looking forward to the next time.

WPT Kansas City Pickleball Classic

Posted on June 17, 2022 by under Pickleball.    

Pictures from my very first World Pickleball Tour tournament. The tournament was held at Elite Tennis and Wellness in Overland Park. It’s a beautiful facility less than five minutes from the Overland Park Chicken N Pickle.

Untitled

I had a blast playing doubles with Kimberly Howe. We met so many amazing women, made new friends, and we earned bronze in our division.

Untitled

It was a rainy weekend with just enough bits of sunshine (and extreme heat and humidity) to get the matches completed.

Untitled

Untitled

Ryan and I ended up winning our division.

Untitled

Untitled

I got to see (and play against) my friend Kat Tomlin, who beat me at singles 15-13.

Untitled

I also saw my KC friends Karly Gleason (was Williams) and Liz Sharp.

Untitled

And I got bronze in singles. Overall, not a bad weekend.

Untitled

I really enjoyed my very first WPT tournament and highly recommend playing in their events. You can find upcoming tournaments here.

Until next time, GNG.

Tanners in Overland Park

Posted on June 16, 2022 by under Food and Drink.    

I traveled to Overland Park to play in the World Pickleball Tour Kansas City Classic Pickleball Tournament last month. Dinner on Friday was at Tanners. Our group consisted of Cory and Molly Sager, Kimberly Howe, Ramon Lozano, and me.

Here are pictures of our dinner that night.

Tanners was great. I remember we used to have one here in Wichita at 21st and Woodlawn, Brittany Center shopping area. After eating at the one at Overland Park, I kind of wish that we still had it here.

Until next time, GNG.

Dining by the Alphabet – Parts E & F

Posted on June 15, 2022 by under Food and Drink.    

As with any project, Brian and I have been making slow progress. We are halfway through the year and we are only up to the letter F. Oops! Here’s all the restaurants we have visited to date.

This city has a lot of Mexican restaurants so for letters E and F that’s where we ended up. Here are pictures from our delicious dinner at El Agave on North Rock Road a few weeks ago.

You can’t really go wrong with Mexican food. I could eat it everyday if needed (and when we travel with our friends Donnie and Tiffany Lesperance, that’s actually what we have to do because Mexican food is all they ever want to eat). No complaints here.

These next two pictures were from Fuzzy’s Taco Shop for the letter F. We originally planned on going to Fizz Burgers and Bottles but tacos ultimately won out.

Tacos > burgers. Always. Until next time, GNG.
