Restaurants in Kansas City

Upcoming Events

Something culinarily compelling happens often on the Kansas City cuisine scene. Among the area’s diverse restaurants. American Slang Modern Brasserie now included.

Diners and bar-goers, of course, can expect the restaurant to be ‘open’ daily. After all, American Slang is easily accessible on the lobby level of the InterContinental Kansas City at the Plaza.

What matters, too, is what happens at the bar/eatery when it comes time for special events or holiday dining – whether its Valentine’s Day or Easter. Mother’s Day or Thanksgiving. Christmas or New Year’s Eve.

Here’s what’s offered next.

Cinco de MayoSaturday, May 5

Some folks celebrate Cinco de Mayo with parades, music and dancing. At Slang, we commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla with some traditional south-of-the-border beverages and bites.

Join us all day for $8 House Margaritas, $5 Corona Bottles and $9 Three Street Tacos (Barbacoa Beef, Pico de Gallo, Avocado Cream). Or enjoy a Taco + Corona for $13.

Ole! and Ola!
