Jimmy's Jigger, Kansas City

Former standalone bar that was later swallowed by Jazz, the restaurant above it, to become Jazz’s de-facto restaurant bar. You can sit in here and not feel like you are in the restaurant, yet still have access to the entire menu.

When we got there they were not quite open yet and the door was locked. We decided to go elsewhere but when we were about 30 feet away I barely heard a faint click. “Hold on,” I said, and ran back to try the door again. Open.

“FIRST!” shouted B as we walked in, throwing his arms up in the air.

“Hooray for you,” said the bartender sarcastically. “Write that accomplishment down in your diary.”

I immediately started laughing as I pulled the bar diary out of my pocket and wrote that one down.
