I heard of Nara from a friend and he told me they had a awesome happy hour, so we went there for an early dinner and had a few drinks and sushi it was great the service was good, and the atmosphere was really cool, i felt like i was in LA or NY, very hip and upbeat. The sushi was good and for how cheap it is during happy hr there is no other place in KC that can beat it. I have heard that the Saturday nights DJ and lounge club is really chill and fun, but have not gone Saturday nights.I would recommend it to anyone who like good sushi for a good price


Thai Place

I go to Thai Place that is downtown at least once a month. They have the best thai food in the city, if not the country. I was sad to hear that the one downtown is no longer open. I love their food so much that I now go all the way to Overland Park to get it. I have tried thai restaurants in Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., Miami, Baltimore, and San Francisco and none compare to Thai Place in KC. That is a tough statement, but I am saying it.

Find the perfect "first day outfit" for your student at American Eagle, Anthropologie, GAP, Lucky Brand Jeans or Urban Outfitters. Check out Gap Kids or Gymboree for your younger fashionable students.

Equip your student with back-to-school gear such as books, texbooks, journals and notebooks from Barnes and Nobles and keep them tech savvy with an Apple computer, Ipod or Ipad from the apple store.

Don't forget the rest of the look - a sharp haircut from Beauty Brands and new shoes from Sperry Top-Sider or Aldo should do the trick.
