The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures

“No one ever forgets a toy that made him or her supremely happy as a child, even if that toy is replaced by one like it that is much nicer.” — Stephen King, The Eyes of the Dragon

ONE OF the BAC Music guys recommended a little restaurant in Overland Park, KS called Pad Thai for lunch on Friday. We weren't expecting anything as good as it turned out to be. Delicious food, wonderful presentation at a modest price. If you pass through the area, it's worth taking in.

Friday night we went to the #1 rated barbecue in the area, Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que. Here's what the USA Today had to say about it:

Here's the thing, though, both Paul and I kinda feel, assuming that it's not awful: barbecue is barbecue. We found their baked beans too vinegary and the rest of the food unremarkable. The description of the restaurant's location is inaccurate in one way: it's in an old gas station, yes, but it's still a working gas station!

Saturday we went to The National Museum of Toys and Miniatures. We thought we'd buzz through, but we spent three and a half hours there. The miniatures are so incredible. Everything is to scale, for heaven's sake. Trust me, you want to go to this.

Saturday night we ate at the #4 best restaurant in the USA Today list of the 10 best restaurants in Kansas City, a place called Story. The halibut I had as my entree was to die, but let's be honest: you almost have to work at it to screw up halibut. It was good, it was expensive, but as Paul said, all the food was rather expected. Nothing surprised us or took our breath away.

Below find examples of the fantastic world of miniatures from The NMT&M. So worth a visit.
