If you’re looking for something different to do on a Friday night, there’s a free event that easily ranks at the top of the charts. Every week year-round the Emma Chase Café invites musicians of all ages and levels to bring their acoustic instruments to Cottonwood Falls for a jam session. Music lovers like me tune in for a night of old-time bluegrass, folk, country, gospel and rock ‘n’ roll in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere beginning at 7:30 pm every Friday."

Washington’s MarCon Pies’ Recipe for Success

If you’re like me and can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen…even if it means not satisfying a craving for homemade pie in this hot weather. Thankfully, there’s a place right here in Kansas that makes serving my favorite dessert, well, as easy as pie. MarCon Pies in Washington bakes 500-plus fruit, nut, crunch, cream, cheesecake and specialty pies every day, yet each tastes just like grandma used to make. "

Where’s The Beef? At the Grand Central Hotel and Grill in Cottonwood Falls

Here’s a wakeup call. With much of the best beef in the country raised right here in Kansas, especially in the Flint Hills region, why not dine at an establishment the Kansas Beef Council twice named the best beef restaurant in the state? The Grand Central Hotel and Grill in Cottonwood Falls uses only a special brand of premium choice beef certified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for its superior marbling. This marbling, coupled with the meat being aged for 21 days, gives the beef its rich flavor and juiciness. The steaks are cut to order, seasoned with a secret mix of spices, and grilled to your liking. I made a reservation and ordered the popular Grand Angelo, a small filet served with mushrooms and shrimp in garlic butter. It was, well, truly grand!
