Been Talkin’ About the Way Things Change

  Things have been in a rapid state of change for the last year, and especially the last month. And you know what? It’s been pretty great.

At Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters in the Crossroads District of downtown Kansas City, go for the coffee, but stay for the cocktails.
