What to do and where to eat around Country Club Plaza?

Spending a 2 night weekend in Kansas City in May. It's going to be a girls weekend and we're staying in Country Club Plaza.  We will have a car and we do like live music, gambling, shopping and museums. Average Budget, not too high end.

If you are staying on Country Club Plaza you will not need a car to shop, drink, eat or listen to great music. Everything is within walking distance.

It's been awhile since I've been back home (2004). So, I'm quite sure there's a lot of changes. If your at Crown Center, then there should be plenty of night life activities there.

Classic Cup Cafe or Gram & Dun on the Plaza are both great brunch places.  Classic Cup has a nice outdoor patio if the weather is nice.  Westport is near the plaza and has a lot of great bars and local restaurants - where the plaza has more chain-type restaurants.  The art museum - Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art - is located near the plaza and has free admission (donation suggested).  I would definitely recommend checking out some BBQ while in town, as well as visiting Union Station Kansas City, Inc. and the National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial.  Take in a Royals game or gamble at the "boats" while in town.  Power and Light District district downtown often has free concerts during the summer which is worth checking out.

I have eaten at several restaurants while staying near the Plaza as well.  If you are looking for great Tex-Mex, give Chuy's a try.  It is now a pretty good chain, but the original is in Austin, TX.  Will probably always be a favorite of mine.  Cooper's Hawk Winery & Restaurant has excellent food, their own wine and a fun little gift shop.  O'Dowd's Little Dublin has a great atmosphere, go for fun not food!  Zócalo has high end Mexican street food and an excellent tequila selection.  And I loved Gram & Dun on the Plaza for really fresh, creative food.

Just north of the Plaza, I enjoyed brunch at Bistro 303.  And for authenticly good French food, give Westport Cafe and Bar.
