Pack Me a Lunch! I'm Departing for a Field Trip

This summer I'm striving to post more about my hometown and to involve my readers more. To accomplish both, I'm going to embark on weekly field trips to places I've never visited in my hometown, and you'll decide my destination. Think of it as a choose-your-own-adventure story. The following are your choices for next week's field trip:

1. Willie's Bar (formerly the Shenago Lounge, which as moved to 15th and Wakarusa)

2. Big G's Antiques
I placed this business on the list based solely on the fact that Big G's picture reminded me of Ernest Hemingway.

3. The Kansas River Trail


Cast your vote in a comment, and I won't publish the comments until I tabulate the votes. Polls close at 10:30 PM on Sunday, June 7th. Next week I'll visit the destination my readers selected and I'll report back to you.

Willie's Bar. There got to be A LOT of local color there!! And if you end up going, you're braver than me!

I vote for the trail.

And thank you for the encouragement! After I take the LSATs next Monday, I'll get back in the kitchen. I can only take so many more poached eggs and bean burritos...

I vote for the trail too. It's beautiful out there. If you have a dog, you should take it with you. They love it out there. We usually go all the way out past Riverfront Park before getting on the Levy and go north from there. Very few people and lots of open spaces. It's awesome!

Is Willie's an open to close deal? If so, I vote for Willie's.

Uh... I am going to vote for Willie's Bar. That seems to be the best bet for a good story... and possibly a fight.
