Monday To-do: May 17

We’re not quite back from vacation yet, but the daily to-do never rests.

Our entire staff (both of us) saw Conan O’Brien last night in Kansas City. It ruled. Andy was there. So was the Masturbating Bear Self Pleasuring Panda. Plus LaBamba, Triumph, special guest Jason Sudeikis and Meatloaf’s gigantic Bat Out of Hell inflatable bat.

Unless we get lost in Nevada, Missouri on our way back, we should be home with plenty of time to spare before the Bike to Work Week kickoff festivities this evening.

Starting at 5:15 p.m., Mayor Jordan will read a proclamation on the steps of the Town Center. Immediately afterwards, a big group of people (including you, if you wanna) will head towards Scull Creek Trail and then make a beeline to Mellow Mushroom Pizza. If you’re curious just how far you can ride on the trail without interruption, tonight’s your chance to check it out.

There’s a Habitat for Humanity benefit tonight outside the Inn at Carnall Hall. It’s a concert on the lawn and Jonathan Story, a local renowned pianist, will perform at 6:00 p.m. More information at

It’s live music season again at Powerhouse. Tonight’s Two High Strung.

There’s more below. See ya later, Kansas City.
