Stompin' at the Savoy

Monkey and I had a great time in KC this weekend. Upon our arrival at the Hotel Savoy, we watched a bit of college football before dinner. Outside of our sixth floor window, it sounded like someone was landing airplanes on the roof. I thought, maybe we were really close to an airport, which would have been bad, and caused me to reminesce about a night Monkey and I spent in Cheyenne, WY, in a Motel Six next to a railroad depot. No sleep for Monkeys, I thought.

But I was wrong. It was the Blue Angels, apparently performing for some sort of air show. I loves me an air show, don't you know. They came awfully close to the hotel, but I didn't get any good shots of them up close. I did take this shot of a formation just a few blocks away.

The architecture at the hotel was very cool, with lots of stained glass and art deco fixtures. We went to Lidia's for dinner, and it was great. Monkey got a giant piece of osso bucco, I got a super tasty sea bass. The play we saw, well, it was not very good. And long. Finally, we popped over to Cheesecake Factory for dessert. A great night, over all.

The museum on Sunday was good, except that we missed all of the exhibits. We manged to be smack in between the closing shows and the opening shows. However, we enjoyed the permanent collection, anyway.

We were home by 5pm on Sunday, both of us a bit tired, but very happy with our chock-full weekend.

Next year, we're thinking Omaha!
