Beervana? Hehe - that's funny. I haven't heard that one. Must have come about since I left. Very fitting though!

Kansas City aka City of Fountains or Paris of the Plains .......Yeah I stole that from Wiki and other than hearing about its fountains in a very rare scenario, I have never actually heard it referred to as either of them, but its on Wiki so it must be true haha.
