Try out the new Journeyman Cafe, located at 1121 West 47th Street, in the West Plaza neighborhood. This spot has been on my "to try list" since the opening and their participation in Negroni Week is the perfect excuse to finally try it out! If you're hungry, try out something on their menu. I plan on skipping dinner and going straight to their Pistachio and Chocolate dessert! The charity they have chosen to give the proceeds to is: Boys Grow.

On Tuesday, head to Ça Va in Wesport to check out their negroni specials. They are making "The Countess," which is an amaro-driven Negroni topped with a float of prosecco and "The Negroni Float, " a strawberry Negroni featuring a scoop of strawberry sorbet. With their amazing patio (pictured above), it is the perfect place to spend an afternoon or evening sipping negroni floats and sampling the delicious items on their menu. I recommend the Moules Frites. The charity they have chosen to give the proceeds to is: Boys Grow.

Can you tell I like patios? On Thursday, I recommend trying Westside Local. It is in my favorite neighborhood in all of Kansas City and I absolutely love sitting outside on their patio for dinner and a drink. Their negroni offering is "Local Cuppa," which is J. Rieger Co. Midwestern Gin, Earl Grey Tea-Infused Pimm's No. 1, and Campari. Order a local cheese board and hang out here all day long on Thursday. The charity they have chosen to give the proceeds to is: Boys Grow.


On Wednesday night, I recommend trying Affäre's three versions of negronis. They are offering "Aperol that we've been through" (Old Overholt Rye whiskey, Aperol, Creme de cocoa), "Campari and Contrast" (Blackberry infused Campari, blood orange vodka, sparkling wine) and "Polomagroni" (Campari horchata, tequila, lime juice, soda water). The Grilled Cheese Pretzel Bun is the perfect appetizer to accompany any of these delicious drinks. The charity they have chosen to give the proceeds to is: Boys Grow.

Bluestem is always a favorite of mine and their cocktails never disappoint. I can't wait to try their take on negronis while helping them support Boys Grow. While you're there, try the hand-cut beef tartare or the Spanish-style meatballs.

Tom's Town is quickly becoming a Kansas City favorite. Their negroni is Lloyd's Negroni, which is Green apple-infused gin, Campari, and Carano Antica. Try the Chef- Selected Charcuterie Plate while you sample negronis! Tom's Town has chosen to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kansas City.

Head down to the West Bottoms this Sunday and try the negroni Voltaire is preparing. Roses are Red includes Campari, Cinzano Bianco Vermouth, and Four Roses Yellow Label. Their charity of choice is Boys Grow. The Patatas Bravas remind me of my semester abroad and for that reason, I can't say enough good things about them!
