KC Restaurant Week starts on the 22nd, and I am losing my mind looking over all the menus that are available to try! I'm thinking that I need to budget for quite a few dinners out, dammit. Because I wanna go to Aixois, and J. Gilbert's, and Fran's, and Cafe Trio, and hell if even Houlihan's menu doesn't sound delicious! (Could it be because it's lunchtime as I'm looking at this list? Maybe. Hmm...)
I did find one menu that was laughable, IMO. The Brasserie downtown? Apparently is only participating in the program for lunchtime. And they will serve you a chicken quesadilla and ice cream if you go there for lunch.
Maybe they should check out the other menus being offered around town for the $15 price. Dude, even Michael Smith has at least 3 options for both appetizer and entree on his lunch menu! So, Brasserie? Yeah, I'm not paying $15 for your stupid effing quesadilla, I'm afraid. Dopes.
Aside from all those lovely menus buzzing around in my head, I have the newest Ben Fold's album ("Way to Normal") on my mind right now. I don't think I mentioned it when it first came out, so I thought it was worth mentioning now. GET IT. It is fucking AWESOME. There are some bad words here and there, for those of you that might have sensitive ears travelling around with you on a regular basis, but honestly, at least half of the songs are going into my workout mix I plan on pulling together this weekend, so listen to him when you workout. Or something. Just listen to it, is my point. You will enjoy it. And if you don't enjoy it? Then you make me sad.
