Words came easy to the two men as they talked trains and railroad. The stranger told Beem, a volunteer with the Midland Railway, he was retired from the Union Pacific Railroad and used to make regular runs through Kansas City west to Marysville.

Kansas City Connection: Easter brunch, Earth Day fun
April 13, 2014
Brunch as a social institution might not have caught on in Kansas City the way it has in Portland (at least the fictitious version of the city presented in “Portlandia”). But Kansas City’s restaurants offer an impressive array of Sunday brunch options, especially on Easter.
Kansas City Connection: All the best of KC Film Fest
April 6, 2014
Given its growth over the past few years, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Kansas City Film Fest eventually became one of the nation’s more popular cinema events. For now, the size is just right — there are plenty of interesting feature films and shorts to choose from, yet the festival is still affordable and accessible to fans of all interest levels.

March 23, 2014
On March 17 at my downtown Kansas City office, amid the sounds of drunken revelry and bagpipes from the nearby Power & Light District, a colleague explained to me why she never celebrates St. Patrick’s Day. “Why should I?” she asked dismissively. “I’m Irish every day of the year.”

March 19, 2014
The lower-body cast that 2-year-old Otis Reed has worn since breaking his right femur Feb. 23 is decorated the red and blue of the Kansas Jayhawks. There’s a lot of pride of place in that choice.
Kansas City Connection: Sporting KC scores with new food options
March 16, 2014
It’s hard to imagine Sporting Kansas City having a much better season than it did in 2013. Winners of the MLS Cup, and a close second in the race for the Supporter’s Shield (awarded to the Major League Soccer club with the most points in regular season play), 2013 was one for the books.

Spring is almost here, and downtown Kansas City is poised to host one of the most action-packed weekends of 2014 thanks to two very different cultural phenomena: College basketball and Star Trek. Though the two worlds aren’t expected to cross over, you might be able to experience both if you act quickly on tickets.
