Imagine it: You’re lounging on the beach, eyes closed, skin tingling from the blazing sun. The crashing of the waves and breeze in your hair lulls you into an afternoon doze. Then you wake and look to your left to find a strawberry margarita, complete with a little pink umbrella just waiting to be slurped down. You grab it; the glass’s condensation stinging your fingers. You take a big gulp. That’s when you realize: this is paradise.
But then you wake up. You find yourself sitting at your desk, in front of your computer, surrounded by your coworkers. Your swim suit is now a business suit. Your lounge chair is now a rolling one. The fantasy is over. And more than anything, you want to be on that beach slurping down that strawberry margarita.
The truth of the matter is, we can’t bring everybody in Kansas City to the beach. But we can bring a little of the beach to Kansas City. And it all starts with one of Kansas City’s newest downtown establishments, Snow & Company.
In September of 2011, Andy Talbert and his team of ultra-entrepreneurs are launching Snow & Company, an artful frozen cocktail bar in the Crossroads District of downtown Kansas City. With a snowy theme, yet a “warm and comfortable” atmosphere, Andy hopes that Snow & Company will become the place for friends to hang out and enjoy specialty frozen cocktails both in the heat of the summer and in the frigid winter.
But it isn’t the location that makes Snow & Company what it is. Obviously, it’s the cocktails.
