In concert with edible Kansas City’s editorial voice, they provide a full panorama of the rich local food scene for both locals and visitors. We appreciate their support and hope you will in turn tell them you saw their businesses in this magazine.
Just in time for the Kansas City Royals season opener, Kansas City’s own proud sponsor 360 Vodka has launched a limited edition, commemorative Kansas City Royals bottle to honor our hometown team with a tribute to their outstanding performance.
