First Fridays aren’t just for the Crossroads. Higher Ground Entertainment hosts celebrations of a different sort in the other downtown Kansas City (the one in Kansas). Instead of pedestrians quietly hobnobbing over installations, the First Friday events at KCK’s Hilton Garden Hotel (520 Minnesota Avenue) find urban professionals getting down at an upscale party.
Tonight’s festivities begin at 7, with guitar jams from the Neely Factor. After that, DJs take the stage and get the party started. Tonight’s special guest is DJ Spinderella, who worked the wax for eight-ball-jacket-wearin’ rap sistas Salt-N-Pepa. Tonight is Spin’s birthday, so the party will be bumpin’. Admission prices range from $5 tickets to $30 VIP passes that include champagne and reserved seating. Proper dress is required. For more information, call 816-965-7697 or see 1stfridayskc.com.
