THURSDAY NIGHT: Welcome Cocktail Party, 8:15 pm

Thursday, October 23 // 8:15 pm
Gram & Dun, 600 Ward Parkway, KC, MO 64112


Coming into town Thursday? Great! Mark + Jutta Bromberg invite you to a Wedding Eve cocktail reception welcoming all out-of-town guests to Kansas City. Come hungry: we'll have a selection of hearty bites, light desserts, snacks and adult beverages. The bride and groom would love to see you!

Gram & Dun is within walking distance of both official hotels.

RSVP is not required, but we'd love to know if you're going to be there (plus some other stuff). Please do us a solid and fill out the form below.

FRIDAY DAYTIME: Explore the City. Do stuff. Eat BBQ. But not too much.

See J+A's favorite places here.

You're on your own for most of the day; lucky you! Shop on the Plaza; stop into The Better Cheddar and nibble on cheeses. Grab a REALLY light lunch somewhere.

We've been on enough early-morning flights to know that sometimes you can't check into your hotel before 2 or 3 pm. So if you're looking to kick it in a coffee shop, we suggest Kaldi's on the Plaza, The Roasterie in Brookside, or Latte Land downtown. There's also a Starbucks on the Plaza if you're into that. 

Looking to get primped but can't get into your room? No worries! MAC on the Plaza and Bare Escentuals on the Plaza will do makeup for you. Need nails? Go for Plaza Nails.

When you realize you forgot to pack shoes, socks, belts or jewels, a list of Country Club Plaza stores is conveniently located here.
