What You Missed In Pitch Forks

By OWEN MORRIS

If you’re not a subscriber to Fat City’s carb-and-red-meat-filled dining newsletter Pitch Forks. Here’s a nibble of what you missed this week:

—Patrick Quillec has closed his south Leawood French bistro Cassis, leaving few options for classic French food in Johnson County.

—More unfortunate news: Power Plant Restaurant and Brewery in Parkville has also closed its doors.

—The Weston Irish Fest is later this week; we told Pitch Forks readers the best night to go and what to look for. (We’ll have that info for Fat City readers later this week.)

—Speaking of Weston, there’s a pumpkin patch in the Missouri town called Red Barn Farms.

—The 2008 Renaissance Fest ends this week.

—Revisiting First Fridays and JP Wine Bar led us to a happy hour surprise.

That’s a quick round-up, but the newsletter contains many more details, including dates, times and links. If you don’t want to be left out, sign up for Pitch Forks here.
