Way on down south
I’m playing trivia right now at Buffalo Wild Wings.
Except this Buffalo Wild Wings is 28 miles south of the usual restaurant I’ve been frequenting.
I stayed at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Zona Rosa from 2 p.m. until 6:25. I don’t know what it was, but I broke down just after 5, then I was so drained I dozed off. I woke up to play one more round of Buzztime Countdown, but at 6:25, I figured it was time for a change of scenery.
I wanted to play SIX, the Wednesday and Thursday evening game which runs from 7 to 8 p.m. I had only 32 minutes to get from I-29 and Barry Road to 138th and Metcalf to the Buffalo Wild Wings at Corbin Park.
I got off of US 69 at 135th Street with five and a half minutes to spare, but then I got lost. First a wrong right turn. Then the left turn lane from Metcalf onto 137th was closed. I had to go down a block plus to the next turn signal, which overshot the restaurant. I pulled in at 6:59:30–at least according to my car radio clock–and dashed into the Buffalo Wild Wings.
Fortunately, I made it with a minute to spare before the first question was asked. Final score: 54,002, good enough to get me the top score at this location for the past 12 months. Now I hold that distinction in SIX at three Buffalo Wild Wings, two in the KC metro and Salina.
This is a very nice Buffalo Wild Wings. This is only my second visit here; my first was almost six years ago. The tables in the bar area face the big screens behind the bar, instead of turned diagonally at Zona Rosa. I’ve been told maybe I ought to keep myself and my money in Kansas when I go to KC. Got something to think about now.
The Cheesecake Factory isn’t too far from here. That sounds so good.
