City Market Cinema Series & more weekend possibilities


[UPDATE: Rain (boo!) has caused this installment of the cinema series to be postponed until Friday, September 11]. Don’t no worry about me…Caddyshack will be playing at the City Market Park (3rd & Main) tonight at 9 p.m. The movie is part of the City Market Cinema series and you’re encouraged to bring your own lawn chair or blanket.

Hooray, beer. In the midst of a major expansion (read about it here), the Kansas City Bier Co. (310 W 79th Street) has a pair of intriguing events this weekend. Carnivores will be drawn to the Man Cave Craft Meats (a Minneapolis meat company) grill out tonight from 5 to 8 p.m. The Feast 50 event ($35) on Saturday at 1 p.m. features food from Pie Hole and ice cream from Glace (two Kc Bier brews are also included with your ticket).

This one is like a pop-up picnic. Truckin’ it in the Park is Saturday at Leawood Park (10601 Lee Boulevard, Leawood) from 5 to 9 p.m. The event put on by the city of Leawood’s Parks & Recreation Department features live music, food trucks (Street Wings, Monk’s Roast Beer and Plantain District among them) and beer from Gordon Biersch.

Okay, city folk. Here’s your chance to learn everything about farming. And we mean everything. This Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. is An Agricultural Century — a celebration of American farming — at Missouri Town 1855. See livestock, learn about corn shelling, animal plowing, tractors, and sheep shearing during a day meant to take folks on a farming journey from the 1850’s to 1950’s. Tickets are by the carload ($10) or busload ($20).

Dine Downtown runs in the Power & Light District through Sunday. It’s a series of prix fixe lunch ($10-15) and dinner ($25-30) menus that include a gift card good toward your next visit. The Bristol has a $15 lunch menu with New England clam chowder and mini lobster rolls while Bar Louie has a lunch deal (11 a.m. to 4 p.m.) for a Caesar salad and a Backyard BBQ burger.
