MoKan NAMA Taste of KC Tour

Written by NAMA on Monday, February 25, 2019 , 12:09 pm

Start your 2019 Agri-Marketing Conference with MoKan NAMA’s Taste of KC Tour!

Savor, sip and share on NAMA’s flavor tour of Kansas City. The food and drink are sure to be on-par with the conversation and networking at The Roasterie and Rye. You’ll feel finer than a Prohibition-Era politician when you end the day with cocktails at Tom’s Town, a 1920’s-style Kansas City Speakeasy!

In the morning, your regularly scheduled caffeine buzz will get a jolt with a behind-the-scenes tour of The Roasterie factory. Attendees will learn
secrets of brewing the best at-home coffee, and receive a complimentary Roasterie pub glass – not to mention a sample of The Roasterie’s
mouthwatering Nitro, Cold Brew or Iced Tea.

We’ll keep the fun moving and get back to the roots of agri-marketing with a delicious meal at Rye on the Plaza. After chowing down, attendees will get the chance to learn about Rye’s farm-to-table philosophy, as well as their partnerships with local farmers who provide the ingredients for top-tier American fare.

Then, bootleg the spirit of Kansas City Prohibition-Era Spirits at the beautiful art deco lounge of Tom’s Town Distilling Co., a local speakeasy
that draws its roots from the infamously crooked politician, Tom Pendergast. Sip one of Tom’s Town’s award-winning craft cocktails after a tour of the distillery and barrel room. Because, as Tom Pendergast loved to say, “the people are thirsty.”

Register today so you can savor the aroma of the coffee business, share a farm-to-table meal and conversation,
and flout prohibition with your NAMA friends and colleagues!

Cost for the tour is $75.

Wednesday, April 10
9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
