For those still interested, this is a reminder that the DBO Midwest MeetUp (DBOMM) that we discussed earlier this year is now just a few weeks away!

the KANSOURI LAN-B-QUE
LOCATION: Kansas City
DATE: AUGUST 3rd - 5th

If you haven't already done so, please RSVP to the event in the FTB HERE
You can RSVP as "tentative" if you are interested but still unsure if you can make it.

FAQ: Is this event in Kansas or Missouri?
Answer: Yes

The rental house we are staying at is on the Kansas side.
When we go out to do stuff it will be on the Missouri side.

COST: Depends on number of people. However, I was determined to keep cost under $100 p/person for lodging for the entire weekend while also making sure we had enough space for a group. A few people had to back out recently, as of 7/1 we are down to 6 confirmed guests at a current split of ~ $82 per person for the weekend.

For those who are unable to view the flyer above:
closest airport:
Kansas City International (MCI)
Kansas City MO 64153
Address for our rental house is:
8616 West 92nd Street
Overland Park, KS 66212

WHAT TO BRING:
Bring your consoles, controllers, battery packs, HDMI / power cables and a small flat screen (if you can). Feel free to bring extra HDMI, power, network etc cables if you got 'em.
PayPal is great for splitting bills / parking, but still a good idea to bring some cash.
For those wanting to go to the WWI museum / memorial you may want to bring a hat or sunglasses / sunblock. Camera. Batteries. Charging cables for cameras and/or phones. :)

misc: I plan on bringing a few movies (such as the Assassination of Jesse James ..in honor of KC being so close to the birthplace of outlaw Jesse James) and a couple of quickplay table games (Battleship. Flux). If SPEEDRACER can make it then maybe he will bring the good stuff like STAR TREK CATAN :)

Overnight space at the rental house is limited to 10 people, if we go over that then late comers may need to get themselves a hotel

Be sure to check out the FTB events for the LAN / MeetUp that BlackT1ger is hosting this October up in Minnesota near Lake Superior!

I was just thinking about this earlier today. I am really excited for this!

I'm only two hours away, so I'm not much use for carpooling I don't expect, and I only have a single extra seat in the Jeep, but I'm willing to pick folks up from the airport if that's needed.

  • Gates - Best Brisket in town, just be prepared to order before you get in line.
  • Joes Kansas City - Great pulled pork, great french fries, and the Z-Man (BBQ Sandwich with onion rings on top)

Sad to say we can't come this time around but hopefully next time!

Awesome! Thank you for chiming in :) Good to get a locals perspective!
Searching online did turn up Arthur Bryant's, Gates, Joe's and Jack Stack as frequently nominated best for BBQ

Steak recommendations came up with Anton's taproom, Pierpoints at Union Station, Jess & Jims, and Hereford House.

re: the BBQ places you recommend, any of them have a good mild / sweet BBQ sauce for anyone who maybe is a wimp when it comes to hot spicy things?? :)

I'm not a huge fan of BBQ to begin with, so take this with a grain of salt, but Jack Stack is highly overrated in my opinion. They do have a pretty decent prime rib, though.

KC BBQ is generally not too spicy anyway. I forget what Gates keeps around, but Joe's Kansas City BBQ keeps a few sauce options at the table so you should be able to find one that you like.

Kansas City style can have some spice. If I do wet bbq, I like the sweet spicy flavor.

There was an old joint oustide of Starkville, MS I used to go to. It was a house back in the woods with a shed next to it that seved as their restaurant. They had sauce so spicy most of my friends couldn't eat it. I remember it made my dad cry when he tried it. I loved that sauce.

Burnt ends are a KC bbq delight that you want to try if you can. The burnt ends sandwich at gates puts me in my happy place every time I get it.

Def want to try Joe's when you're out there! Its the best spot imo.

Afraid I won't be able to make this one. I'm traveling for work for three weeks, then two days after I get back, we're buying a house and moving in. All of which happens the week leading up to this event. So I'm afraid I'm just going to be toasted. If you all need an extra, though, I'd love to join remotely for some games here and there!

That would have to be Saturday if you're wanting a full day.
Due to the drive, many people wont arrive till Friday afternoon or evening.
Then most are leaving Sunday morning.

Lodging: price change..

by Dame117 @, Missouri, Monday, July 02, 2018, 17:55 (1501 days ago) @ Dame117

okay so... we lost another one (partially).

as of 7/2/18 that puts the lodging cost now at $98 per person for the weekend for the 5 left who will be there (Stabbim, Cheapley, Dame, Kermit & Bluerunner). That's at the limit of the budget for some of us.

if Funkmon is able to make it to Des Moines to carpool in with Stabbim, that'll bring us back to 6 people and $82 per person for the weekend. (paypal is probably the easiest way for you guys to reimburse me. We can wait a couple weeks in case people / price changes again)

Well Stabbim, looks like we could have done this at your home after all! LOL. We went from 9 confirmed (12 to 15 with the 'maybes') down to 5 or 6 people. Of course this all starts to unravel a couple days after I book the place despite holding off doing so for several weeks! {shrug}

It'll be good times none-the-less :)

Sorry for any inconvenience =P

That's a bummer you work weekends, but it would be great if you do get to stop by in the evenings. We will be having the LAN, plus story-time with Blue and now we could have show-&-tell art time with you! (I visited your site.. wow!)

If you email me through DBO and include your mobile number, I can include you on group discussions about the meet-up :) We also have a shared event folder on Google+
