Last week I spied some amazing pumpkin and gourd carvings on display at a place in the Crestwood Shops in Kansas City.
There were many more inside the store but it was a bit on the hoity-toity side so I kept the lens cap on while I was inside. The carving was done by a talented group of students at the Kansas City Art Institute. I'm not sure how much longer they will hold up, so if you want to see them get there soon.
While you are in the area, stop by Cafe Europa for a snack.
Get the pumpkin tart if it's on the menu when you go. The waiter was kind enough to split it for Joan and I so we wouldn't stab each other with our forks in our haste to see who would get the first and last bites.
