The Drum Room
Had dinner last night in downtown Kansas City at the famous Drum Room in the President Hotel with good friends. This place was built in the 1920's and has been fully restored to it's glory years of the 40s and 50s when big bands played and cigars were smoked openly among men. The food was fairly good and a jazz band played while we ate. Pretty cool tribute to a bygone era.
One bizarre note: my friend had booked us reservations there the night b4 and on the day of I was at a local park playing tennis with my wife, daughter, and niece where I saw a taxi cab (rare enough to see in KC) with a "Drum Room" ad placement on the roof.
