Kansas City, opinion, cocktails, snark.

Man, I hate Starlight.

“You know what this midwestern river town needs? An outdoor theater! Who wouldn’t love to be alternately rained out, struck by lightning, swelter in the summer heat, wilt in 100% humidity & dodge mosquitos the size of starlings?”

“Best idea ever. Let’s get to building.”

I imagine that’s how Starlight was conceived anyhow.

That being said, Kathy Griffin’s sold-out show at Starlight this evening was fantastic. When I told my hairdresser I was going, he responded “you and every other fucking fag in this city.” Couldn’t have been more true. A terrorist’s bomb or gross structural failure could have decimated the ‘mosexual population of Kansas City tonight.

Kathy looked fantastic and hit all the touchstones: her mom; Oprah; Tom Cruise; Ryan Seacrest; Britney & of course, Barbara Walters.

Best part? We were 6 rows back from the stage and had VIP parking. This went a long way toward making me feel better about the 17 pounds I lost from schvitzing like a hoo-ah.

Now I’m sitting at home watching Marky-Mark piss & moan about the council & the city manager on ‘Kansas City Week in Review.’ What a fucking tool.
