It's the dog days of summer, and with that, Kansas City has seen some new spots pop up. Meta Coffee Roasting Co. finally has its own brick-and-mortar shop for its single-origin coffees, and Third Street Social added a second – and not to mention, massive – location in South Plaza.
And as it goes, the area had to say goodbye to at least one old favorite: Smokin' Joe's BBQ in Olathe, Kansas. In a Facebook post, owner Rhonda Lorenz shared thanks for the community's support.
Here's what opened, closed and what's coming down the pipeline this month in Kansas City.
