Calling all loyal Kansas Citians! Tomorrow is the start of the third annual KC Local Week - a week dedicated to shopping, eating, drinking, and supporting local Kansas City businesses. Started by Karie Fahrenholz in 2014, KC Local Week aims to inspire people to make small changes in their day-to-day lives in order to support local. The changes can be small swaps (such as t-shirt Tuesday) or you can try to exclusively eat, shop, and drink local this entire week. 

Karie has even taken all of the guess work out of it by suggesting a theme or event for every single day next week. See the events calendar below for more details. Tomorrow morning you will find me celebrating KCup of Joe Monday at one of my favorite local coffee shops (and the closest one to my house), Crow's Coffee. Stop in for the best Iced Coffee and homemade pop tarts in the city. Other events I am looking forward to this week: Happy Hour at plate., Thirsty Thursday, and Sunday Brunch. Check in on Instagram throughout the week to know where I am celebrating KC Local Week and tag @KCLocalWeek and @loKCal in your posts to show us your KC spirit!
