KC has a couple good pizza places but never thought of it as top 10 pizza city. Good to see museums/galleries and theatre scene recognized as it is pretty significant for KC's size. Although the list is missing a few major cities...


KC perceived intelligence is 17th, about same as NYC and Denver...

Came in higher than average for 'wild weekend'...
