Gatsby Days!

Today is the kickoff for Gatsby Days in Excelsior Springs; a weekend chock-full of Roaring Twenties-themed activities. The 20's are often considered the one of the heyday periods for E-Town and this event showcases Excelsior in a fashionably flapper-ish way.

Among the goings-on will be a vintage car cruise, invitational art exhibit, youth vaudeville show, poetry readings and a Roaring Twenties bash at Flander Hall complete with midnight raid by Prohibition agencies!

This is also an excellent time to sample some of Excelsior's varied retail shops like Molly's Studio and Blue Raddish or fine restaurants such as Ventana Cafe and Broadway Bar and Grill. We are already planning a leisurely lunch with out-of-town guests at one of our fave hangs Willow Spring Mercantile where we will indulge in one of their killer lunch items like the All-American Wrap with turkey, spicy bacon-cheddar dip, lettuce, tomato and crumbled bacon on a tomato tortilla. We'll also get genial proprietors (and friends) Daphne and Jim to enlighten us on the current hot sellers in their vast Missouri wine and beer selection while live music provides the perfect background setting.

Go here to the Excelsior Springs Cultural Guild site to learn more about Gatsby Days and also how to support the arts in Excelsior Springs. Then come out and join us!
