KC Play-By-Play

On the morning of April 8th, Becky and I left Columbia to go see Zielinski in the Kansas City Film Festival. Ryan stayed behind to play a Viletto reunion show. Sorry I missed it, bro. Beck and I arrived in KC and went to see our good friends Zach and Sandy, and their 10 month old son, Jackson. It was a beautiful day so we called in some Oklahoma Joe’s and took it to Memorial Park for a picnic. Travis met us there and was kind enough to let us crash at his pad. Thanks, Trav. Holy shit! Oklahoma Joe’s was awesome! I had a burnt ends sandwich with slaw on top and sauce on the side. I really did feel like crying when I ate the last bite. Best sandwich ever!

We showed up at the AMC Mainstreet theater and got our passes. Cool venue. There were some great pics of several of my favorites; Charlie Chaplin, The Marx Brothers, and Laurel and Hardy. Reunited with Zach and Sandy and then I saw my Aunt Terry, Uncle Bud, and my cousin Bryon. It was so cool that they came to see the screening. It was an intimate screening but the crowed was really into it. I gave a brief Q&A after the film and that was it. We all went to have a beer and dinner at a pub near by. We ended up staying there for hours.

It was really good to visit with all of you. Greg and Scott… we’ll hook up next time for sure. Thanks for all of the hospitality. Talk soon.
