So on Friday night, my friends and I went to a restaurant that we've never been to before, and it's my new favorite place! Avenues Bistro in Brookside (Kansas City, Missouri) was amazing! Not only did I love the actual restaurant but they have a great happy hour, especially on Friday and Saturday! It is so rare to find a cool, small, locally-owned restaurant that not only has a wide selection of quality food and wine, but is also extremely affordable. I can't say enough great things about it, but I'd recommend making a reservation.
