It's a great day to be in KCK! There is so much going on in our area and we are so happy to be a small part of it! You may not be aware quite yet but Kansas City, KS and its area businesses/attractions have received multiple awards as of late.
One of the most exciting serves as an accolade for the educators of our community. America's Promise Alliance chose Kansas City, KS as one of 2012's Best Communities for Young People. Communities were judged based on extensive criteria some of which had to do with test scores and drop-out rates for young people. As a result of a concerted effort by youth programs and schools to acheive unification, educators saw an increase in math proficiency from 3% to 68% and a jump in reading proficiency from 11% to 67% on state assessments.
Kansas City, KS is a first time winner of this award. We send our thanks and congratulations to all who have worked so hard and invested so much to make this possible! THANK YOU for making our community a better place!
Another exciting award has been presented to Schlitterbahn Waterpark here in Kansas City, KS. They recently received international recognition from Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Awards. They were honored with being named the home of the World's Second Best New Waterpark Ride with their King Kaw River Rapids ride that opened at the beginning of the 2012 summer season.
If you didn't make it out to the park this year, make sure you don't miss out in 2013! It really is a lot of fun -- great for the whole family!

d'Nile Wins the PAMA Cocktail Contest!
Many exciting changes have been happening at the Chateau Avalon over the last few weeks. The new Breakfast menu has started and the new Small Plates and Desserts menus are finished and in place. But, We are the most excited about our newest winning cocktail: The Greek Goddess.
A few weeks ago at Yia Yia's in Leawood, we beat out other top area bartenders with our unique Chai-blended Martini to win the PAMA Cocktail Contest!
In d'Nile, we are featuring a few lesser-known wines right now, so make sure to ask your bartender about their favorites, our current specials, as well as what new drinks we have in the works. We are developing some great new cocktails for this fall as well as re-imagining a few classics.
Come in and try some of our new menu items and the Greek Goddess- a truly great Martini to sip out on our North Patio and enjoy on a cool Fall evening.
P.S. The holidays are right around the corner. Chateau Avalon's d'Nile Wine Bar is a fantastic venue for holiday parties and general revelry. Call our Director of Sales, Jayme Humenczuk, at 913-596-6000 to book your event today!
