Sometimes you need to gather your besties and take off for a few days of shopping, dining and pampering. Forget about setting the alarm and instead start the day with Saturday or Sunday brunch at Louie’s Wine Dive, complete with a mouthwatering menu and “almost never-ending” carafes of mimosas.
Keep the indulgence going at Milagro Midwestern Spa and Collective, a full-service spa that offers massage and skin treatments. Did we mention that for an additional $5, you can add a slice of pie from downtown Overland Park’s The Upper Crust pie shop?
Next stop—Prairiefire’s French Tip Nail Salon for manicures and/or pedicures. Then, shop ‘til you drop at fashion-forward boutiques like Adorn, Kindred, Threshing Bee and Tomboy. Stop into Primp and Blow, a blow dry bar, and get ready for a night on the town.
Prairiefire offers several tempting dinner options, including the delightfully vibrant Coco Bolos or seafood-centric Newport Grill. Other nearby must-try restaurants include Tavern at Mission Farms, Rye or Room 39, all at Mission Farms; gastropub Pig & Finch in Leawood’s Park Place; or Urban Table, a sleek eatery in the heart of Prairie Village.
Head to Strang Hall's outdoor patio and bar to end the evening on a relaxing note. Or visit downtown Kansas City’s nightlife and entertainment epicenter, the Power & Light District, a walkable, 8-block neighborhood that’s home to more than 50 bars, restaurants, shops and entertainment venues. Don’t leave without a stop in KC Live, a two-level entertainment plaza that also features an outdoor stage and plenty of room for dancing!
