Hey Kansas City, Bella + Travis here. Between the two of us, we get the privilege of sharing the news with 106,241 readers in Kansas City, daily — both through our newsletter + social media.
We have a new face at KCtoday, so you can consider this our official meet-cute (no cinematic, albeit awkward, coffee spill bump-ins required). 😘
Meet Bella 👋
Q: Describe your perfect day in Kansas City in the length of a Tweet (280 characters).
A: Start the day with Crow’s Coffee for an iced dirty chai followed by vinyl shopping in Westport at Mills Records. After a quick bite to eat at Parlor, I would pre-game a concert at Uptown Theater by crossing a new beer off my passport at iTap.
Q: You’re ordering a drink from Kansas City-coffee shop/bar: What’s in it?
A: There’s a good chance if I am ordering a drink, it’s a beer. What other beer than the coveted KC-native Boulevard Space Camper IPA?
Q: Describe Kansas City’s personality in three words.
A: Lively, united + home.
Meet Travis 👋
Q: What were the last 3 things you did downtown?
A: A childhood friend just moved to KC, so we reconnected at Baramee Thai Bistro (I recommend the Pad Key Maw). On Tuesday, I played KC Crew rec sand volleyball (we lost the match, but won in spirit), and yesterday, I walked my dog in Quality Hill.
Q: Hit us with your favorite piece of local trivia.
A: The Jackson County Courthouse, Municipal Auditorium, and Brush Creek were all built by a mob boss.
Now that we’re all BFFs, feel free to send us a message to share news, events + more with us (or just say hello).
