This week on The Local Show, we examine the progress on the Big 5 initiative to move UMKC’s world class arts programs to a new downtown location and consider what that could mean for Kansas City’s downtown. While the National WWI Museum primarily pays tribute to veterans of the Great War, it also pays tributes to veterans of all conflicts. We take a look at how the museum embraces veterans from all conflicts and all branches of the military. During Prohibition, Kansas City was dubbed The Paris of the Plains. Now, local cocktail connoisseurs celebrate this history with a week’s worth of music, food and carefully crafted beverages in the Paris of the Plains Cocktail Festival. We get a primer from American Restaurant’s General Manager Jamie Jamison and former Manifesto Bartender Brandon Cummins. Finally this week, we examine the business of providing people a place to do their business with a first hand look at Port-O-Potty practitioners.
