Stockyards Supper & other weekend possibilities

weekend-022715Most of us aren’t cattlemen and cattleladies, but you can still live it up in the former Stockyards District. The Stockyards Supper series returns to the Genessee Royale Bistro (1531 Genessee Street) in the West Bottoms Saturday night. The three-course dinner includes braised leeks with bitter greens and walnuts, coq au vin with mushroom and bacon and a bittersweet chocolate mousse with almond toffee and creme fraiche. The bar opens at 6:30 p.m. and dinner is served at 7 p.m. Tickets are $35. You can make a reservation by calling 816-474-7070.

Can you feel the love tonight? Admit it. You’re thinking about this, now. Spin Pizza has a February love special (after 5 p.m. through Saturday) that’s worth talking about before the month ends. The February Love Feast ($16.50) is a small plate, mini Mia pizza, a salad, a gelato and wine, beer or sangria.

One More Cup (7408 Wornall Road) turns six years old this weekend and like any good six-year-old, they’re going to be enjoying some free chocolate chip cookies Saturday. They’re also holding a book drive for Reach Out and Read Kansas City. Bring new and gently used kids books (for kids up to age 5) to donate.

Tavern in the Village (3901 Prairie Lane, Prairie Village, Kansas) is hosting a fourth anniversary party this Saturday from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. They’ll have a late night happy hour with $6 appetizers starting at 8:30 p.m., as well as birthday cake and a champagne toast.

The Ferran Adria: Notes on Creativity exhibit opens Saturday at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art (4525 Oak Street). The first four weekends will all have a local food component. Christopher Elbow and his chocolates get their guest turn this weekend. Tickets are $12 ($10 for those over 55 years old, $6 for students and free for members).

It’s a four-course dinner and a mystery. The Dinner Detective — an interactive murder mystery dinner — is Saturday at the Hotel Phillips (106 W 12th Street) from 6:15 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $59.95. If they’re sold-out, it’s an ongoing series.
