We're proud to announce our first event in our monthly series, the #SipLocalKC Tasting Series Event Launch Celebration! 

This monthly event happens every 2nd Friday, monthly, throughout the great states of Missouri & Kansas! Each event will feature local wineries, local coffee roasters, local breweries, local juicers, local artists, local musicians, and local who's who from both sides of the Missouri River! 

Join us on Wednesday, August 8 (6-9pm), for Tech N9ne Bou Lou Beer Tasting + Meet & Greet - a fundraiser for the Museum at Prairiefire's KC Urban Advantage program! 
Held at the Cinetopia-Bar, each ticket includes five 8oz Boulevard Samples (Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale, Pale Ale, American Kolsch, Unfiltered Wheat, Bou Lou), five unlimited Tasting Stations and Tech N9ne Meet & Greet with photo op! Bou Lou is Boulevard's traditional Unfiltered Wheat beer with coconut and pineapple.

Today platinum-selling artist Drake announced the ‘Aubrey and The Three Amigos Tour.’ Drake will be joined by special guests and “Walk It Talk It” collaborators Migos on a North American run throughout this summer and fall. Produced by Live Nation, the 41-date outing will stop by Sprint Center on Tuesday, July 31. The tour announcement follows the release of Drake’s hit singles “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What,” leading up to his highly-anticipated fifth studio album Scorpion.

When we encounter people within or outside of our own communities whom we consider to be closed-minded in some way, how do we talk with them without arguing, dismissing their views, getting emotional, or being drawn into a fruitless, time-consuming debate? 

In this workshop, through storytelling and discussion we will explore what has and hasn’t worked in the past, and identify useful strategies for handling these encounters in a way that is most likely to lead to peaceful and productive conversations.
