Looking for a different place to dine this week that you may have never been to?

Holidays are approaching so you may be looking for some treats to give out. Who can go wrong with popcorn? If you’ve never tried them before, I’d give a big recommendation this week to The Popcorner. They are a locally owned business that have been doing it big for a while now.


Crumbl is opening in Wichita later this week. They will be located at 2564 N Greenwich Road. Better yet stop in on Friday for FREE COOKIE DAY.

Happy Dining,
