[meet] Via Christi’s New West Campus

Over the past few years, the west side of Wichita has seen an influx of minor emergency centers and specialty doctors. Take a drive around the west side and you’ll find dentists and orthodontists a-plenty. Now, we have a new hospital: Via Christi Hospital on W. St. Teresa.
Just past the Northwest YMCA, off 21st Street, Via Christi West sits on 120 acres surrounded by open pastures, overlooking the Mohr family barn, listed on the National Register Of Historic Places. The location will appeal to rural patients who don’t want to come to the “big city,” …

[move] Where to Run in Wichita

I am not an expert on running. I don’t run every day. I don’t run every other day. To put it simply, I run when I want to run.
But I do have a few preferences: no music, no watch, no machine. This third preference refers to the treadmill. Stationary running just doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, but I acknowledge its use when the weather is hazardous or when working out seems dreadful without the TV’s distraction.

[listen] LIV Music and Arts Festival Recap

It was hot.
Really hot. As in, people were so drenched with sweat they looked like they’d just crawled out of a swimming pool.
Despite the B.O.–inducing heat, music lovers flooded the Commerce Arts District June 19 to partake in Wichita’s first LIV Music and Arts Festival. They were rewarded with live performances by local artists and plenty of Tallgrass beer.
“We should have had tents, we should have had misters,” festival organizer Adam Hartke said, laughing. “Next year, we won’t repeat those mistakes.”
As advocates of all things live and local, my friend …

[do] Wichita Party Buses

You might be the guy or gal who gazes lovingly at it rolling through Wichita on a Tuesday night, longing to be part of the fun. Or you might see them lining Douglas in Old Town on Saturday night, as mostly-conscious passengers pile out. Whether you’ve been on one or not, you’ve probably seen or heard of a party bus. And if you’ve never been on one, but are curious, I’m here to answer your questions.
What exactly is a party bus?
Generally, it’s a bus that’s been converted to accommodate a more social, fun atmosphere. …

[play] The Wichita Wild: Arena Football 101

If you’re looking for something different to do on Friday, consider a Wichita Wild game. My brother-in-law told me he thought I would like it because it’s fast-paced and fans sit really close to the game. He was right. The game moves quickly, there’s always something going on during breaks in play (such as T-shirt giveaways, the dance team performing, a rib-eating contest – In know, right?!), and they have a fully stocked bar.
I consider arena football a cross between football and hockey. You move a soccer game indoors, and it’s faster-paced. Same thing happens …
