April Date Night

This is a little late, but finally, our April Date Night we ended up doing a tour of Kansas City: Suburbia.  We started out by having lunch at our favorite sushi restaurant and then decided to blow some money at the Hollywood Casino at the Legends, since neither of us had been there since it opened a few years ago.Since we didn't have kids, or any hard plans, we wanted to try something new for dinner, so we drove up to Zona Rosa, a shopping district in North Kansas City and went to Bar Louie, a famous bar and grill in the area that we haven't taken the time to go.  Food was very good, and worth the trip. For dessert, we heard about this gourmet ice cream shop named Glace.  It was started by a chocolatier who is famous in KC, and known for interested flavor combinations, and that trend was used with the ice cream flavors.  On paper, they sound sketchy: Goat cheese and cream, pineapple and cilantro sorbet, cucumber and lime, honey and lavender, peanut butter and jelly.  But in practice, most were absolutely incredible!  Thankfully, they are very accommodating to tasting, so we tried everything, and of the 12-15 flavors, there were only one or two that we didn't like, but we also decided to go with flavors we wouldn't normally be able to get from Baskin Robbins or Sheridans.
We ended up driving something like 60+ miles, but everywhere we went was well worth the trip, so it was definitely memorable.
