Oatmeal Stout (Free State)

This brew was a great local alternative to what Gordon Biersch offered at their Leawood location. This wasn't an overly complex stout, but it was a nice way to end the evening.

Kansas doesn't have an overabundance of breweries. Free State doesn't have a huge distribution, so I haven't had one of their brews since I left Missouri.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This black brew had a light roast aroma. It had a thick and rich creamy head.

Taste: It was a creamy brew. It left a light roast aftertaste that made me feel as if I had just had a coffee. It went well with the end of my meal. It was good to sip on over a lingering discussion.

From the Free State site:
If you ask us, there’s no better way to start your day than with a nice, hot bowl of oatmeal. Not only does it have everything you need to power through the day, but it’s also delicious and filling in a way that no other breakfast food can match.

And while we don’t recommend trying it before noon, the same can be said for our Oatmeal Stout. This rich, tasty brew goes down smoothly, and on a chilly evening in the Free State, it simply can’t be beat.

I Marched, What's Next?

What can we do? There has to be more than writing letters and posting on social media. This is a work in progress, but these are my thoughts...
Stay educated. If you think the media is misleading you, take charge. Know your sources. Do your research. You don't have to consume the 24-hour repetitive cycle of media. You can focus and keep it to the point. I like NPR, Popular Science, and the technical sources (department sites). If you're curious about education, go to the Dept of Education site! You want to know about the job rates? Go to the Department of Labor reports.

Educate each other. We are failing in this. We need to talk about the issues. Not just reposting articles, but face-to-face or virtually with a personal spin and follow up. We need to have meaningful discussions about the current state of affairs and what is happening. We can only act together if we work together. But serious discussion, not Facebook posts!

A Right Regal Bonsoir (or Imperial Bedroom Revisited)

Elvis Costello doesn't mess around. Last night, at The Chicago Theater, I witnessed a true delight of the senses. Out of respect for the artist's wishes, as requested, I didn't take any pictures or video of the performance. You'll have to live through my description and a grainy, preshow snap.

Wild Horticulture (Little Shop of Horrors)

Last night, I saw Little Shop of Horrors (Crown Point Community Theater edition). This fan-favorite has stood the test of time. People still pack in to see this 80s musical based on a 60s movie. Big production or small, the catchy tunes and dark yet quirky storyline keep people humming and laughing.

CPCT has a great range of shows. From Sartre's thought-provoking No Exit to the whimsical, yet mature, Happily Ever Once Upon they bring entertainment to the community. CPCT brings in plays that are far from mainstream. Evenso, it was a delight to see this classic musical.
