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.

Not to get all “Sex and the City” on you, but I really do love a good martini. Wichita isn’t exactly known for martini bars. I’ve actually had a little trouble finding bars that know how to make a martini that doesn’t taste like pure alcohol or pure mixer. However, there are a few places around the city that know how to serve a tasty martini.

If you’ve never done a soda tasting, you might be surprised to know that it’s oddly similar to a beer or wine tasting. You drink way more of a beverage than you should, but it doesn’t feel that way at the time since the portions are so small. You keep going even though you know you should stop, because you want to try all the varieties. You feel high and silly for a little while… and then you crash and try not to get sick.

[eat] Kanai

Recently, two of our writers, Dani Stone and Carly Holmes, took a trip to Kanai. Here’s what they found:
Dani:
A few weeks ago, when I told my husband I not only agreed to review the west side sushi restaurant Kanai (12111 W. Maple), but that it was, in fact, my idea, he probably thought I was huffing Play-Doh again.  He knows I’m not a fish fan and avoid it at all costs.  I barely allow it in the house and the few times I do, I wash all dishes and utensils in such …
