Granite City Food & Brewery, a casual family restaurant founded by hospitality experts, has an on-site brewery and a menu stuffed with more steak, seafood, pasta, flatbread pizza, burger, and sandwich options than Abe Lincoln had dollar bills stuffed in his top hat. Gourmet pub-grub appetizers and many other generously portioned dishes are listed alongside the beers that bring out their flavors. The intoxicating taste of the inebriated vodka mussels ($12.99) is suggested alongside Northern Light––a light creamy beer––and the juicy, tender meatiness of a 14-ounce New York strip ($25.99) is advised along with Brother Benedict’s bock––a brownish German-style lager. Others among Granite City Food & Brewery's six specialty brews are the Irish-style Broad Axe stout, known for its nose of roasted chocolate and coffee notes, and Duke Of Wellington, an IPA with muscle-bound malt character and a deep-seated dislike of Napoleon.

The Performing Arts Series brings internationally recognized acts to dazzle Kansas City–based eyes and ears in the relatively intimate space of Yardley Hall. Lauded by the New York Times, choreographer Lar Lubovitch coordinates lithe bodies through the swift, public execution of modern dance. Greedy ears, meanwhile, can hoard the pleasures of Haydn, Mozart, Strauss, and the Beatles as performed by the renowned Vienna Boys Choir, whose top-secret youth serum has kept its carolers young for the 500 years of the organization's biblically long life. Viennese composers vie for your aural affections during the Philharmonic of Poland's first-ever U.S. tour, with arias spotlighting soprano soloist Izabela Matula as she sails her voice atop classic compositions by Lehar and Verdi. The New York Times has also given an appreciative nod to The Joffrey Ballet, whose classically trained foot workers leap and lunge to the orchestrations of Tchaikovsky, Richard Rodgers, and Philip Glass. Check out Johnson County Community College's website for more information about the series, and each individual performance.
Dance Amore's chief instructor Deborah Loomis has been performing for more than 20 years, boasting a resumè that includes acting, dancing, and singing with the Massachusetts Allstate Choir and taking to the stage as a female lead in Bye Bye Birdie. At Dance Amore, she puts this experience to use helping children and adults alike tap into their melodious side through an eclectic curriculum. Her dance classes cover tap, ballet, jazz, and hip-hop for different age groups atop Harlequin floors. She also translates choreography into calorie-busting workouts with Zumba programs. At sessions for toddlers, she encourages freeform movement and the development of motor skills, outlining dance's foremost basics, such as refraining from repeatedly hitting the speakers to find the music inside. Deborah guides pupils in the process of making their own music, as well. She oversees beginner's flute, piano, and voice lessons that set the stage for future practice. Parents and loved ones keep abreast of their children's progress by attending yearly recitals, where each student showcases their burgeoning talent.
Lounging feels perfectly natural at Arabian Clouds. The hookah bar remains open until as late as 3 a.m. throughout the week, encouraging passersby to stop in, gather around the glowing coals of one of the Khalil Mamoon hookahs, and enjoy a round of Arabian coffee or tea with the shisha. The lounge also plays eclectic mixes of pop, hip-hop, rock, and contemporary Arabian music, and guest DJs stop in to perform and energize crowds on the weekends.
