Westport was celebrating a special anniversary this Memorial Day weekend. Kelly's Westport Inn was marking its 65th anniversary and McCoy's Public House its 15th anniversary. In order to throw a proper party, they decided to block off the street and have a good ol' fashioned block party. With drink specials galore, some great live music including Jeff Jenkins and Lost Wax, cigars to go around, and a Jameson tasting stand, it had the makings of an instant classic. While many Kansas City residents may have been getting torched by the sun at the lake, those who felt like sticking around were lucky enough to attend what is hopefully the first of many McCoy's and Kelly's block parties.
