KC Daiquiri Shop

I was in the Kansas City/Overland Park area last weekend for a tournament and stayed with my friend Mary Ann. She organized a dinner for us on Friday with Joy and Molly. Jackie, another friend of ours who has since retired from Evergy, also joined us. Joy selected the restaurant. Jackie was going to meet me to pick up some bowling balls and we asked her to join us for dinner instead.

Joy picked this place called KC Daiquiri Shop which has a New Orleans vibe. They had several daiquiri flavors that you could mix and match. They had pre-made flavors but you could also create your own.

Joy is super into pictures while Jackie is completely averse to pictures. The rest of us are somewhere in between. Naturally, we had to take a bunch of pics because Joy just loves them. Jackie was a pretty good sport about it.

Jackie tried to hide and avoid the pictures at first but she eventually caved and we got a few great group photos.

Here are some pictures of our dinner because food pics are kind of my thing. I can’t go to dinner anywhere and not take pictures. The food was pretty good but I think the best part was the daiquiri selection and also the live music.

I am so grateful to Mary Ann for getting everyone together and setting this dinner up. It was fun catching up and visiting with my lovely coworkers (and former coworker) who I hadn’t seen in what seems like ages. And I definitely enjoyed reconnecting with Joy. She is like my soulmate because we are alike in so many ways. We immediately bonded when we first began working together in the Communications Hub of One CIS.

I have known and worked with Jackie longer because Jackie is legacy Westar Energy. I didn’t meet Molly and Mary Ann until I joined the OCM team for One CIS but Comms Hub is where we all bonded. The three of them even came to visit me (and attend my Zumba class) a couple of years ago.

I will write more about the Lenexa tournament and the rest of the weekend next time. Until then, GNG.
