Manifesto has a new spring cocktail menu & other weekend possibilities


Manifesto (1924 Main Street) turned six years old earlier this month and celebrated with a new spring cocktail menu. For your celebration of their sixth anniversary, we suggest you get a little tropical with Caught In the Rain — pineapple-infused rum with coconut oil, lime, vanilla and toasted almond.

Up-Down — a new bar and arcade — opens tonight in the former Hamburger Mary’s space at 101 Southwest Boulevard.

It’s the 80’s…to the max. Step back in time with a 1980’s revue show at Missie B’s (805 West 39th Street) tonight at 8 p.m. See tributes to Paula Abdul, Pat Benatar, Journey and Aerosmith. General Admission is $15. VIP admission (priority seating, a light-up bracelet and button) is $20. If you wear 80’s attire, your light-up bracelet is free.

In the FYI category, Sosa’s 39th Street Diner (3906 Waddell Avenue) now has a liquor license, which means you can get beer and drinks until 3 a.m. It’s around the corner from Missie B’s, if you’re staying for the 80’s dance afterparty.

The third Fridays Pop Up Market is back at Urban Provisions General Store (2616 Guinotte Avenue). The Columbus Park Ramen Shop will be taking over Pigwich (next door to the Local Pig) for a ramen and beer dinner collaboration with Torn Label Brewing Co. They’ll be selling apothecary goods from Messner Family Farm and Sara Cramer’s jewelry from 6 to 9 p.m.

You can learn everything you need to know about a culture through its flour sacks. Find out why when Salina librarian Nancy Jo Leachmen presnts History on a Piece of Cloth: Kansas Flour Sacks at the Central branch (14 W 10th Street) of the Kansas City Public Library this Sunday at 2 p.m. Leachmen will weave a story about how Kansas history has been represented and expressed through flour sacks.
