About The Event
Join us Friday, June 7, 2019, on an exciting daytrip to Kansas City. We will depart from the St. Joseph Museums, 3406 Frederick Ave., at 10:30 a.m. The first stop on the trip will be the West Bottoms District to take in their First Friday event. Trip participants are free to explore according to their interests at such places as Bella Patina, Good JuJu, The Lace Loft, Horticulture, Le Fou Flea, Restoration Emporium, Top Hat Mercantile, The Painted Sofa, and Prize Antiques. Lunch options are tucked everywhere, and visitors will be free to choose among all the options.
Next, we will visit Union Station’s newest exhibit, Stonehenge: Ancient Mysteries and Modern Discoveries. This exhibit presents over 300 ancient, original artifacts (150 of which have never traveled outside of Europe) and the latest cutting-edge scientific research to answer questions about this iconic, mysterious monument. The exhibition spans over 12,000 years of Stonehenge history. Guests will explore the ancient landscape, how the people prior to and during Stonehenge lived, constructed and used the monument, and how modern science continues to refine their story. Scholars and visitors alike have puzzled over this unique prehistoric monument for centuries, wondering if perhaps it was the work of prehistoric people, giants, gods, wizards and even the devil himself. The truth is about to be revealed.
The trip will conclude with a three-course dinner at the Bristol Seafood Grill, which is one of Kansas City’s finest restaurants with a chic-casual atmosphere. Guests will have a choice of three first courses and four desserts. Entrée choices will include the Center Cut Filet, Joyce Farms Chicken, Grilled Atlantic Salmon, or Seared Georges Bank Sea Scallops. Each entrée is served with grilled asparagus and Yukon mashed potatoes.
Cost is $160 for non-members and $140 for museum members. Space is limited and paid reservations are required by May 7, 2019.
