Just closed for the summer for relocation. They are attempting to move to Old Town.

When I go to Wichita I like to eat at Chester's for dinner.  There's a million good places for lunch in that downtown square some dumbfuck characterized as a strip mall with a fountain. Sabor and Todd Brian's come to mind.

would be great for them, that strip mall on 21st and Woodlawn was awful for them, its a testament to how great they were doing that they were able to sustain being there for so long. Their neighbors were freaking Big Lots.

Agreed.  Probably high point when backstage was running full steam and stud boss J. Beasley was manning the door.  They would be great downtown.

True story while getting carded at backstage:

Very drunk Gooch: Holy crap Beas' whats up?
J Beas': Nothin'
Very drunk Gooch: Man you really let yourself go!
J Beas': :dubious:

How were you guys getting backstage? Was this when Beasley was selling real estate and trying to play for the Stealth? I ran into him at Flashbacks a lot at that point.

Backstage was the name of the bar next door that one of the Stevens owned. Had a brah who was a bar tender there. This is probably the only reason that J Beas' did not sit on me for my fat comment. This same friend bar tender also mumped Jenn Bates FWIW.

can confirm that sumo's fried rice is fantastic. the hibachi cooking show is exactly like every other hibachi cooking show. kids and old balls love it. if you want good sushi go to kanai, it's out west (119th and maple)

New sushi place at 13th & Tyler called Ninza Sushi is really good.

Last time I went to the Looney Bin, I got super drunk and PI'd the comic so hard he offered to fight me IRL back by the dumpsters. Not a proud moment.

Surprised he didn't go with the ol "I don't go to your job and yell at you about your Big Macs," or "I don't go to your job kicking dicks outta your mouth..."

Dinner recommendations?

Jet BBQ was always fun to go to, I grew up on the north side of K-96 and Woodlawn, and it was so fun to watch people scream all the way down the Thunder Plunge (you could hear them from the front yard of my house). Glad someone said Old Mill Tasty Shop already. The goblin thing by the keeper of the plains is pretty interesting, given they spent money on putting a goblin under the grating by the river. Skate East was cool as a kid (Skate South was not a place to go to). Don't know if it's still there but the Riverside Perk was fun 19th hole to go to after playing a round of disc golf at Oak Park. All the airshows with it used to being the Air Capital were fun to watch, as it was to see the B-1's (when they were there) and KC-135's do there flight path in to McConnell (living near that flight path was just great). Going to Mosley Street Melodrama can be cheesy sometimes, but a lot of fun, especially at Christmas time.

My parents frickin love that melodrama place. (Well, I'm pretty sure it's my mom that really likes it.)

Horrible, horrible, no good, terrible place. :flush:

Looney Bin is good though

No, denied.  Old Town Cabaret is bitb.  But both are very different than Looney Bin.  Looney Bin is just a matter of who is performing. 

:thumbs: on the thunder plunge.  I miss that place. 

Jetman is great.  Stop by on a Friday evening and have a beer and play some ping pong.  Carousel Skate Center was/is awesome.  Never went to skate east.  Have been to skate south once unfortunately.  Riverside Perk is long gone - Maggie that owns Scotch and Soda killed it.

Harrison Ford basically anywhere in Wichita. Mainly Abuelos, PF Changs on The Waterfront though. <---- Nicest dining/shopping area in Wichita (second is Bradley Fair)
