Zipping at a faster pace and racking up higher scores than their grass-stained outdoor cousins, the iconic Missouri Comets streak through MISL play from the inner orbit of the new Independence Events Center. From their midfield seats, footsport fans can enjoy an unobstructed view as they brush up on their knowledge of indoor soccer, which features six players to a side, legal plays off of walled sidelines, and the frenzied neon lights of the multi-ball round. Visitors will get to cheer on the newly resurrected team led by former Danish soccer star Kim Roentved as they go head-to-head against the Chicago Riot or the Omaha Vipers—teams that weave Midwestern footwork narratives that rival the toe-typed tales of "Handless" Studs Terkel.

Harrah’s VooDoo Lounge hosts distinguished evenings of upscale boogying on an immense dance floor bathed in light shows and thumping, DJ-spun beats. After stepping to the front of the line, VIP guests traipse to their velvet-roped private table, where servers present a bottle of wine or liquor such as Belvedere vodka, Tanqueray gin, or Captain Morgan rum. Patrons can combine their chosen libations with four complimentary cans of Red Bull and nonalcoholic mixers, or sample cocktail selections spilled forth from three bars and the glasses of compulsive hand wavers (not included with today’s Groupon). Rhythms of top 40 dance, house, and hip-hop lay the soundtrack as go-go dancers and silk aerialists illuminate the visual landscape with graceful athleticism and misplaced fabric swatches.

With sonorously soaring aerialists, seamless integration of modern-dance choreography, and harmonious orchestration, Symphonic Quixotic embodies a sensory experience invoking the classical elements of fire, earth, wind, and water. Quixotic Fusion's bombastic performances defy classification as the gravity-defettered dancers twist and fly to the beat of modern mixes before a hypnotizing video composition like so many raver leaves grooving in gusts of trip-hop winds.

No Coast KC will assemble locally produced technology, art, food, and live entertainment in the midst of the Crossroads arts district, granting creative Kansas Citizens the opportunity to display their work to appreciative crowds. General-admission tickets grant access to a blocked-off stretch of 19th Street bookended by two stages sporting live entertainment, ranging from spoken-word artists to local bands to all-pigeon burlesque troupes. Street performers will roam the event acting out spontaneous small-group routines that could entertain attendees with circus acrobatics, choreographed dance, or digital art. An outdoor drink garden supplies thirsty ticketholders with coffee specialties from Mildred's Cafe as well as hand-muddled libations made by regional mixologists.

The late-October sun shining down on the stadium illuminates the 76,000 or so fans around you—fans who only pause their whooping, screaming, clapping, and whistling to yell for the Chiefs as another football game begins.

Arrowhead Stadium might initially impress visitors with its upgraded sound and scoreboard systems, expanded concourses, 360-degree video-ribbon board, and upgraded snack choices. But what keeps them coming back to the place is the camaraderie they feel watching their favorite football team catch a touchdown pass or stop an opponent short of the goal line.

The Hunt family recognizes this spirit, which is why when the time came to make decisions about the future of Arrowhead several years ago, they knew that, unlike other teams, who were tearing down and completely rebuilding their venues to better fit the modern world, they needed to preserve their iconic stadium. So with the help of Jackson County's loyal citizens, they raised $375 million and added such features as the Founder's Plaza, the luxurious Scout Investments Club Level, the Chiefs Hall of Honor presented by Time Warner Cable, and a new team store.
