I’ve been searching for the words for the past month and all I’ve mustered is a bunch of put offs and teases. So here it goes: I found a job in Austin and moved there from Kansas City. What will that do with the blog? I’m not sure yet. I always iterate every two years on the design but this kind of change warrants even more. One thing I can assure you is that I will continue to write in some form. Whether its under the KCCGD moniker or something else, there will always be a place for ramblings on college football.
Championship Saturday came and went and for the brief time I was there, it was worth it. My day started out at Lew’s Grill and Bar and ended back up there. In between was some craziness with a company holiday party complete with a lame cover band as well as a great finish to the Big 12 Championship Game. All in all, the day was widespread and fantastic, even though college football barspotting was very short.
It’s been a long, food filled holiday weekend and of all the times I’ve been out and about the last three years, I can say that being home for four days was the perfect change of pace. There’s plenty of bars out there for me to frequent, both old and new, but for this week’s barspot I wanted to do something different. Maybe it was celebrating being in a new home or maybe I was just too tired to try to marathon 3 straight days of football at a bar, but it was hight time to spent some home time. So this week, I’ll review my time at home and gives ome pointers on how to do it right.
Okay, I’m giving JJ’s Other Place one more shot. They didn’t have power for our game last week, even though they were open that evening. So I’m going back to give them a college try for this Saturday. The morning games all suck, but once the afternoon hits we get some Top 25 clashes. Let’s hope that they will have a enough juice for the week for use to enjoy at least one of those. The backup plan, for the first time ever, is Lew’s Grill and Bar. What can I say, it’s my new favorite place. Continue reading Barspotting: JJ’s Other Place Part II
No seriously. KCP&L cut off JJ’s Other Place’s power and was closed for the day. I was pumped about heading to my favorite hole in the wall to watch some sports but it was a no go. They recently upgraded their televisions and now I know where the money came from. No worries, folks. I won’t cut you off, but I may cut this one a little bit short. Long story short, I went to Lew’s and watch Missouri trounce Kansas State.
Another actual barspot and I’m keeping up on the known favorites with Lew’s Grill and Bar. I’ve been here a couple of times and have begun to become a regular here. They’ve upgraded the televisions and also the food. The day of football was long and fun, so I was glad I got the sweet spot for watching in the bar. Regarding the action on field, we saw some tight games and some surprising blowouts. It was a lazy day, but it sure was a weird one too.
This year has been reunion tour at home and new bars plus stadiums on the road. So to continue that tradition, this week’s barspot will be at Lew’s Grill and Bar in the Waldo district. I haven’t built up the courage to double pop collars at The Well yet, so I’m heading back to a comfy place that’s just right with sports watching. Since the last time we’ve been there, they’ve introduced Das Boot. Yes, the boot featured in the number one hit smash comedy Beerfest. So look for a pairing with that bad boy. There’s also some great game pairings on tap as well. Get ready to chug the football.
