Without a doubt the neatest city I've ever been to.  Great food, great people, absolutely beautiful city.  Felt perfectly safe wherever we went.   Headed back next year.

Man I wish I could go! It's been a while since I've been there. Have you been up the coast to Whistler\Blackcomb?

Sydney, Australia would top my all-world list. That place is absolutely amazing. Just awesome. Vancouver would probably be my 2nd all-world choice.

Brisbane, Australia was actually a surprisingly fun little city. Won some money at the casino and then went and spent it at the nudey bar down the street.  It had all the essentials of a night of debauchery.

Have not and not really sure where those places are.  We took an Alaskan cruise last year and left out of Vancouver but got there a day early to look around.   Hit it during the Stanley Cup and that city was wild.  Became a Canuck fan on the spot. 

Next year we'll allow a couple days in Vancouver and Anchorage to just mess around.  Rent a car and go where the spirit moves us to go.

Never made it further west or north than Anchorage but from the footage I've seen, Nome and Barrow would be great spots for jump starting a good case of hypothermia. :D

Sorry. Whistler\Blackcomb is the largest ski area in North America straight up the coast from Vancouver about two hours drive and a beautiful drive with mountains on one side and ocean on the other. The resort is the best there is for mountains. If you ski the skiing is fantastic. As they say "It's worth the drive".

And will be in need of some good BBQ. Any suggestions? I'm not looking so much for ribs as I am pulled pork. Love me some BBQ nachos!

I've also heard of this underground italian family-style place. Cant remember the name of it, anyone know what I'm talking about? Is it any good?

I lived there for over 4 years and tried them all.

My favorite is Jack Stack.  They have locations at the Plaza, off Metcalf in Overland Park, and in Martin City, MO.

My second favorite is Oklahoma Joes.

I have been to all of them also, and there are a ton of places.  I would have to agree if you are going to pick one your best bet is Jack Stack.

And Yes Gas station BBQ ain't bad.. ;)

I love Jack Stack. Haven't been to Oklahoma Joe's but everyone says it's great. Can't go wrong with Gates.

Just make sure you get the beans when you go to Jack Stack. They are unreal.

And if your going to KC, their/our claim to fame is brisket and ribs. I'd get some ribs and burnt ends if I were you.

The pork and beef burnt ends at Jack Stack are the best BBQ I've ever eaten.

Do they have meat in them, or are they just beans? It should be a sin to not have meat in your beans if you own a BBQ restaurant

I actually think Oklahoma Joe's has the best sauce in KC, but the quality of meat and the atmosphere at Jack Stack are second to none.

You know, for me, the atmosphere at Jack Stack is a let down. It's uh...too clean. I like my BBQ places to greasy and old.

No biggie though, the food is incredible.

It's the only one I've ever been to. I mean, it's not like KC Masterpiece, but it's not LC's or Arthur Bryant's, either. I guess it's in the middle.
