You could always grab a quick bite to eat at Willie C's before heading out to see the Wings play.  The the next day you could take the whole fam over to Fantasea.

I'm pretty positive 5 year old steve dave experienced this exact day at some point

Willie C's was pretty sweet.  Loved how the tortilla making contraption was out in the dining area so you could watch it.  Also, you could still take your family to Fantasea in Wichita, though I'm not sure you would want to.

Yeah, that old Holiday has some nice apartments in it now.  No idea why someone would pay that kind of dough to rent a place there though when you could buy a loft in Old Town for less.  Hell, the lofts at St Francis are only like 190k, my buddy paid 850/month for a studio at that Holiday Inn place.

Fantasea was epic.  It was the greater Wichita area version of Oceans of Fun when your parents were too lazy to haul you all the way from Winfield to KC.   My fave were those three slides that started at the top of a big hill.  Right after starting down one of them, my slide mat would "accidentally" slip from underneath me and I would go the rest of the way down headfirst on my belly at breakneck speeds, then get yelled at by one of the lifeguards at the bottom    :lol:

Got some females phone number at Fantasea when I was there for a friends birthday party when I was in the 6th grade.  I lived 2 hours away from Wichita at the time.  Spoke maybe twice with her on the phone before we realized we lived too far apart to hang out.  I remember she bored the crap outta me on the phone.  eff her.  Probably was a bitch anyway....

Yes.  

May need to revive that concept as part of the Old Town pool idea.

Welp. Sounds like we're Roadhousing again tonight. :sad:

At least thanksgiving dinner at La Galette was good. There is also talk of paintball.

Pretty sure all liquor stores are closed today.  Least that's what the sign said at the liqour store I went to last night.
