The Roof at The Broadway

Columbia’s newest bar opened just in time for my friend’s birthday celebration, so we jumped at the chance to check out The Roof on top of The Broadway in downtown Columbia. I don’t think we could have picked a better location.  The Roof truly gives you a unique and impressive view of Columbia and immediately […]

Summer Shows

I bartended my way through college, and I can’t tell you how many times I set a customer straight on a weekend morning with one of these Bloody Mary’s.

Foreigner Won’t Seem Foreign

Several years ago, Foreigner came to the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia.  I went to the show – but was skeptical about seeing them without former singer and co-founder Lou Gramm. Luckily, it turned out to be amazing.  And now that Foreigner is returning to Sedalia this summer on Friday, August 9th: Mark your calendar […]
