Kansas football adds KC stop to Weis tour


Kansas Athletics and the KU Alumni Association announced Thursday the addition of June 27 in Kansas City, Mo., as the final stop on the Kansas Football Preview Party with Charlie Weis tour.

The Happy Hour event will begin at 5:30 p.m. and take place at The Dubliner in Kansas City’s Power and Light District. All Jayhawk alumni, fans and friends are invited to the event as Weis, the KU football coaching staff and special guests from the athletic department and alumni association are expected to preview the upcoming season and host a question-and-answer session.

Previous stops on the tour during the past several weeks included: Denver, Houston, Dallas, St. Louis, Chicago, Wichita, Liberal (Kan.) and Topeka.

There will be no charge for the Kansas City event.

Whats the Big Deal? Its one time, its not like we are doing this stop 5 or 6 times there. Hey we went to St Louis was there outrage about that? We are just spreading our wings.Why Is there not outrage that HCCW went to Denver, Colorado left this conference, How about Houston that is Texas A&M country shouldn't we be mad about that? Let us move on from the teams that left our Conference.

Wouldn't it be funny if we can still stole some top recruits from Misery?

Grunhard is part owner and he and HC Weis did a charity event there before:

I wish they would pick a different place, preferably on the Kansas side. From I have heard the food is below average and the service pretty poor.
Lots of good sports bars on the Kansas side including the new Twin Peaks in Olathe (check the waitresses), any of the Johnny's Tavern locations, or even the 810 Zone Leawood (even with K-Stater Kietzman) would be better choices.

I think Grunhart (sp?) owns the Dubliner, so it is kind of keeping in house. Love the idea. If we can string together some wins we are going to have a "National Brand" in football thanks in large part ot our high profile coach; if that happens I think we will start to get some 5 star guys. We are building something really great here, but first we need to win some games (then maybe we can upgrade the stadium).

Love the direction of the program, we are going to be a team other teams cant mark as an automatic "w" anymore. RCJH

Next year consider KCKS. perhaps KC Sporting Park, to keep the $$ in Ks. They have a reception hall for a cash bar that will hold a large number. Perhaps OP Sheraton convention center, they have rooms of all sizes.
