    If you are from Wyandotte County then you know exactly what the first Saturday in May means, that's right Polski Day. Sometimes Polski Day falls on the same day as Cinco De Mayo so you know it's going to be a fun day! The parade begins at 11:00 a.m. at 12th and Central and ends at 8th and Central. The crowds flocks to All Saints Parish at 811 Vermont for a afternoon filled with ethnic food and drinks, games, and a Polka mass at 4:00 p.m. Many of the surrounding homes fill their homes with friends and family and Polish music. So grab your red gear and make plans on attending the parade on Saturday, May 5th, 2018.
  • My favorite place in the whole city is Breit's Stein & Deli in the Strawberry Hill neighborhood. Located at 412 N. 5th Street, Breit's is a quaint little bar that has the "Cheers" persona and a strong local crowd to support it. During the weekdays they serve sandwiches to judges and lawyers that cram through the door on their lunch break. If you haven't had their Reuben or Italian sandwich, you haven't lived. Amazing! My mouth is watering while I type this.

    Although we go to Breit's several times a month, my favorite time to go down there is when the weather is nice. There is something about the brick paved patio and the warm sunshine that make the cocktails even more enjoyable.

    P.S.- You are bound to run into someone you are related too or at least know when you walk into Breit's Stein & Deli. Enjoy.

    If you are new to our area you might not know that in 2003, on an early May afternoon, an EF5 (the most powerful) tornado touched down in Kansas City, Ks. It caused death and extensive damage. After this disaster, city officials made it mandatory that all new construction homes within the Unified Government be built with tornado safe rooms or have a basement with concrete walls. The city requires that the safe rooms be built to Federal Emergency Management Agency standards. Builders within the county have found that buyers really like this requirement and it has become a selling incentive. If you're looking for an area to settle your family you might consider the peace of mind this requirement brings to families moving into our area.

    If you are looking for an afternoon of very inexpensive entertainment you should consider this wonderful and peaceful area just a few miles from the Kansas Speedway. This 450 acre lake was built during the depression of the 1930's. It was built by the "WPA" program of the federal government. This program helped put depression era citizens back to work. Be sure to tour the massive spillway. The spillway is 10 stories down and is quite breathtaking. While traveling across the dam you can see for miles across the flatlands of the Missouri River. The panoramic view encompasses as far as Parkville, Mo.

    All you need for all of this is your car, your kids and maybe a picnic basket!
