Yes, never attempt to read the rules of the board game anymore to start. Always watch the youtube first then use the rulebook for clarification.

I'm quite obsessed with Disney Villainous. Marvel Villainous is pretty good too but not as polished as the Disney one (now has 3 expansions with a 4th in the works). Dixxit is another fun "apples to apples/cards against humanity" type of game that is good for families. Pandemic is fun but tough.

From a card games perspective, we also play quite a bit of Love Letters, Pop Tarts and Sushi Go.

Mass Produced, Pint Size: B&J
Mass Produced, larger format: Breyers
Low-Cal: Halo Top
Ice cream where they put a bunch of crap in it and mix it up: Vista Cyclone!

Doesn't get better for me though than Mango Kulfi from our local indian restaurant

Saul and I are on the same page except for Low-cal (I don't have much experience in this category) and mango kulfi?

I would say that gelato is very good, but impossible to find so it is probably overrated by me because I have such fond memories of it from Italy.
According to Wikipedia, technically not "Ice cream":

Kulfi is similar to ice cream in appearance and taste but denser and creamier.[2][4] It comes in various flavours. The more traditional ones are cream (malai), rose, mango, cardamom (elaichi), saffron (kesar or zafran), and pistachio. There are newer variations such as apple, orange, strawberry, peanut, and avocado. Unlike ice cream, kulfi is not whipped, resulting in a solid, dense frozen dessert similar to traditional chicken nuggets-based ice cream. Thus, it is sometimes considered a distinct category of frozen dairy-based dessert.[4] Due to its density, kulfi takes a longer time to melt than Western ice cream.

Quality of beer can’t be the metric. Wherever you are, odds are the best beer available is at a nearby brewery rather than from a can that crossed state lines.

Very good post.

Illinois has quite a bit of good stuff. My favorites are:
Dovetail for mostly traditional Bavarian beers
Half Acre for the hoppy side
Off Color for the funky experimental stuff
Maplewood

If a recipe calls for a teaspoon of something, she will buy a hogshead of it.

This weekend we are going on a Iowa/Minnesota road trip.

Day 1 (today): Barn Town in West Des Moines
Day 2: Lua Brewing, Exile, Confluence
Day 3: Forager (Rochester, MN), Pulpit Rock and Toppling Goliath (Decorah, IA)

Day 2 is pretty flexible but I definitely want to hit up Lua.
Very jelly about Toppling Goliath. Plz report back.

Decorah is way the f out there. I was kind of disappointed in the tap room as they didn't have much there that I couldn't get locally, but it was still cool to see. Very large place - bigger than anywhere in KC other than Boulevard. Pulpit Rock, I wasn't hugely impressed with their hops. I've heard they are inconsistent from a couple different people. :shrug:

Confluence/Exile were pretty meh.

Lua and Barn Town were fantastic if you are in to the pastry stout/smoothie style fruited sours.

Rochester - saisons and farmhouse ales. Also had a few of the aforementioned pastry stout/smoothie style fruited sours. Great food too. Overall a really good trip.

GUYS!

About every other week i've been attempting to purchase BKS beers online. They go on sale at 7:00 PM Thursday nights and sell out by 7:01 or 7:02. It's insane.

I pick up on Friday or Saturday and then usually also hit up Alma Mader, and then Rochester for some beer & coffee.

There has been a few new breweries that have recently opened in KC in the past few weeks. Pathlight Brewing seems to be the most promising so far, with a good balance of Haze, west coast and pilsners. Haven't been or tried Rock Creek or Lost Evenings.
Is there a new Normal Brewing in Crossroads? Have seen pics from there. Enjoy the weekend trip.

Believe it’s called Nimble Brewing. I haven’t tried it yet. Their line up looks great, just haven’t made it there yet.
