Boulevard: Summer Brews to Beat the Heat

IMG_20190805_183655We all love summer for some reason or another; school’s out, music festivals, patio drinking (my personal favorite)—but we all hate summer for one good reason: it’s WAY too hot. While we may be heading into August and the subsequent end of summer, we all know that the temperatures in Kansas City likely aren’t to drop until at least mid-October.

The date itself was horrible and in my gut I should’ve ended the date when he constantly reminded me that California, where he’d just moved from, was way better than Kansas City as if it were some sort of knee jerk response to everything I said. Well if it’s so much better, why don’t you just get back in your Mercedes and go back? The only good thing I got out of that date was a free pair of Ray-Bans he decided to give me and some damn good drinks from Snow and Co. that helped make that date much easier.

If the name isn’t enough of an indication, Snow and Co., located in the Crossroads district of KC, specializes in making snow cones…with alcohol. Continue reading
