|New season of Foodie Fridays program for 50 Plus begins with Sept. 16 lunch outing|
The Blue Bird Bistro is the first destination for a new season of the Foodie Fridays program being presented this fall and early winter by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This program lets participants try a new restaurant with a fun and active group of friends for lunch or dinner on one Friday each month. Participants meet at Antioch Park. Transportation to and from the restaurant is provided, and participants are responsible for the cost of food and drinks on their own. Diners can come to one outing or as many as they’d like planned through December. Please call (913) 826-3160 for more information or to register.
The Blue Bird Bistro is a MidAmerican artisan cuisine which offers food which is organic, all-natural, sustainable, and local, and is located about two blocks west of the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under travel. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “Social Outing.”
The outing to Blue Bird Bistro will take place beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Sept. 16. The cost for one two-and-one-half-hour outing with transportation is $10 per person.
