The Casual Art of Dining with Strangers is for people who desire to connect with others as they travel. Along with this comes the beautiful backdrop of some of the city's most delicious and culturally diverse restaurants. In cities around the world, al fresco dining is a style of dinner that is casual and often party-like in its atmosphere. That is exactly the vibe you'll experience with our dinner parties. Along with meeting people from all walks of life, thoughtfully curated topics to bring about great dinner conversations, and trying delicious locally owned restaurants. The featured restaurant has a gorgeous outdoor dining area which compliments a wonderful evening of exploring the tastes of the city. The foods you'll eat are sourced from local farms and gardens in the Midwest. We'll start with a meet and greet mixed with fun ice breakers. Then we'll move into sharable appetizers, entrees, and of course desserts. All while connecting with fellow travel lovers. Book early! All reservations made at least two weeks in advance receive a 20% discount! Special requests for a specific date and time can be made throughout the week. Please inquire about availability through the Airbnb messaging system.
Welcome to a fresh way to connect with local life in the city as you explore! Hi, I'm your host, Kiara. I was born & raised in Kansas City, MO. By day, I'm a teacher to a wonderful group of preschoolers. And most important, I'm a mama to the oh so fabulous, Lily! You'll meet this amazing co-host during the tour. What I love about city life are the museums, historic architecture, the growing culture of plant based eating, and it being an awesome place to raise kids. Since 2014, Lily and I have traveled across America as family friendly bloggers. We love shining a spotlight on local events, city sights, music, foods, and attractions. The Midwest has a rich plethora of culturally diversity to explore and I'm so excited to take you on a delicious adventure. Plus, you'll be showing lots of local love to the businesses that make the city great!
