The holidays are just around the corner. Many people will have friends and family coming in town to spend time over Thanksgiving, Christmas and the new year. Around this time is when my inbox gets questions on recommendations on places to eat and things to do for their groups.
I’ve decided to put out a blog to help everyone make those choices. Back in 2015, I put out a list of ten restaurants to try over the holidays and decided not to repeat any of those restaurants in hopes of spreading the love around. Each of these recommendations are all in Wichita and good for parties of 6 or more. Be sure to check each of these places before going in to make sure they are open over the holidays as well. Otherwise enjoy these 16 places with your friends and family and let them know Wichita isn’t boring.
