Kansas City Brookside Art Annual 2017
Decided to leave the basement for just a few moments tonight in order to take a quick peek at life away from the keyboard.
This brief journey into the world was somewhat hopeful despite ongoing hype about the Kansas City "creative class" that always stifles any talk of local creative expression.
A fun fact of local life . . . Organizers desperately attempt to reinforce high-class branding with this event by calling it an "annual" but it's really just an art fair . . . And high dollar sales of expensive artifacts to the 1% aren't nearly as commonplace as local biz peddling tater tots and beer to the masses.
Overall a stellar event that still has another afternoon for locals to enjoy.
It was so nice that I'd even like to share some food porn . . . Both of these are for me:
And so, tonight's lesson for our most dedicated readers is that Kansas City "creative class" hype shouldn't ruin a season of some of the genuinely fun and far more organic offerings on display in this cowtown.
And all of this inspires our playlist for tonight . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night . . .
