With all of that said, I’ve been cooped up inside for most of the last two weeks. When I’m not snuggling my littlest love, I’m chasing my toddler-babies, napping, and drinking coffee (and working on a blog for Ziyak here and there). Because I work for the most amazing app in the entire universe, I hop on daily to see what adventures are going on around me. Then I close my eyes and imagine that I’m doing those amazing adventures, when in reality, I just got peanut butter smeared on my sleeve and applesauce flung at my face - which is an adventure in its own right, but the cooped up at home kind of adventure.
Today, I’m sharing with you five things happening in Kansas City this week that are exciting and adventurous! Of course, these are my own opinions, and some may question my gauge for adventure, but I once slept in a tent all by myself in the Middle of Nowhere, Africa, I’ve jumped off my fair share of cliffs, and I’ve eaten nachos from Taco Bell, so I’d say I’m a pretty adventurous person.
The Coterie is one of many popular theater companies in Kansas City, and they often put on performances that are family friendly and usually pretty compelling. What makes this performance of "Hana's Suitcase" so unique and exciting is that it spans 70 years with a look into the past and present while modern students search for the owner of an old suitcase, but explains the Holocaust story in a unique and fascinating way.
Climbing at the Cave:
The Cave is a bouldering gym that is located 10 floors below ground! I can say this is exciting because I’ve done it before (as you may have read in another blog)! Bouldering is different than rock climbing because the walls are all different angles instead of a straight shot up. With bouldering, you also don’t climb as high as with typical rock climbing, but the climbs are still extremely hard. Also… NO HARNESSES INVOLVED! Scary?! No, just plain adventurous.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga:
Feel like doing something that’s a combination of relaxing and exciting? Try out some Vinyasa Flow Yoga at RoKC! This 60-minute class is set to music with the goal of creating really fun flow! Yoga sounds incredible right now, as I listen to my toddler screaming from their beds, but I might accidentally find myself enjoying corpse pose a little longer than the rest of the class. So why don’t you go for me… “Namaste” at home and drink some coffee.
How to Use a Knife:
When I read the title, my immediate thought was: “YES! No more slicing my finger off! (Yes. I’ve done that… several times.) But after clicking on it, I found out that it is actually a play put on my the Unicorn Theatre. Which is STILL just as exciting as learning how to use a knife because I love theater and I love humorous theater. This play is about a chef in New York City who is facing his last chance to turn his life around while dealing with some rowdy line cooks, an entitled busboy, and a quiet African dishwasher. I’m secretly hoping that this is an interactive experience where the audience gets to eat the food they cook in the “restaurant”, but even if it isn’t it will still be an incredible play that will leave the audience in laughter and pondering the human condition at the same time.
Free Toasted Ravioli:
When I read, “FREE TOASTED RAVIOLI”, my mouth started watering. What I wouldn’t give for some crispy and cheesy toasted ravioli from Cupini's right now. The exciting thing about this? Every single Wednesday, if you purchase a 12-inch pizza, you get free toasted raviolis. And if you haven’t been to Cupini’s yet, Wednesday is the perfect time to go. And, you might just see my husband in there getting me some Italian goodness.
