Warm weather wine walk

It was a beautiful night in Kansas City, something that doesn’t happen often in August.

I heard about the Wine Walk on Delaware from Stacy, a friend at work who was kind enough to invite me along.

The walk typically starts at Cafe al Dente or The Farmhouse restaurant where you buy a punch card ($15). Then you visit several Delaware Street establishments (there were 14 wine stops this month).

Each stop offered whatever wine they had for the occasion. Sometimes there was a choice of red or white. A couple of people had sangria. A couple of places only had white wine.

Of course, with such a party atmosphere, we were bound to meet some awesome people. We did, including the women from The Peanut Gallery. They stood behind a table covered with lots pretty items, including handmade jewelry and license plate covered journals. Teresa said that her latest passion was making tiny hats, which were really cool.

We ran into Kansas City’s inimitable Jon Trozzolo who was on punch card duty at The Folk Store. The walls of the shop were lined with the prettiest ukeleles, banjos, guitars and mandolins ever.

For eats, we took a pit stop at the Taco Republic truck. I can vouch for the chicken rojo taco and the killer guacamole/chips. Stacy and Tanya were pretty excited about the queso/chips.

And we ended the evening talking with reenactors Paul and Julie who were indulging in some 21st Century cupcake goodness from the kind folks at Coffee Cake KC. Special thanks to Owner/Roast Master Stubbie Jurgens for his photo bombing prowess.
