Oh, Kansas City. You will always reign supreme as my home, my favorite city. However, if I’m being totally truthful, a recent weekend visit to another popular Midwest location almost had you dethroned. First, there was the quaint cobblestone and picturesque architecture of the Old Market district. The old-timey feel of its candy store. The mouthwatering, unique dishes introduced to us on a fabulous culinary tour. (Mashed potato burger, I miss you already.) Even the seedy history of the Sporting District had me intrigued.

Tenía muchas ganas de viajar a Nebraska, tal vez porque al ser parte de las Grandes Llanuras de Estados Unidos, me imaginaba ese viaje en carretera viendo paisajes llanos y desolados.

I hopped over to Omaha last weekend for a hot minute to visit some friends before they move to St. Louis to be closer to me start their post-grad school lives.

It was a quick trip, but a fun one. Highlights included two home-cooked brunches, a late night Revenge catch-up and searching for Warren Buffett's house after indulging in eCreamery ice cream (yes, we found it).
