Book Signing A Go-Go

If you weren’t here, you missed a fabulous party.

Last night, Portfolio was proud to host author Katie Van Luchene as she celebrated the release of her newly revised travel guide, The Insider’s Guide to Kansas City (Third Edition).

In this newest edition, Katie guides readers through our city’s eclectic array of offerings—from restaurants and shopping to attractions and accommodations—with enthusiasm and style. Katie was present to sign copies of her latest book, available now at bookstores.

Many of the “best of the best” listed in the book also turned out for the event. The booksigning featured heavy hors d’oeuvres from some of the noted restaurants in The Guide, including: Jasper’s, The Mixx, Natasha’s Mulberry and Mott, Seven, Webster House and The Wine Bar. Signature drinks and a live DJ playing house music were provided by Blonde. The Roasterie provided the perfect nightcap—it’s Kansas City blend of coffee. Mazzaresse jewelers also helped Katie and Geri celebrate by making their evening extra sparkly!

Not only did we celebrate the book, but, as it turns out, it was also Katie’s birthday…so, after the booksigning, our friends at Blonde hosted a fabulous afterparty, with lots of dancing!

Cheers to Katie! Thanks for another fantastic Guide and Happy Birthday!
