Glore Psychiatric Museum

@ Glore Psychiatric Museum 6406 Frederick (map)
St. Joseph St. Joseph

Glore Psychiatric Museum
At one point in its 123-year history, St. Joseph's State Lunatic Asylum No. 2 held around 3,000 patients. Though the hospital is no longer operational, the imposing brick building now houses the Glore Psychiatric Museum (3406 Frederick, one mile west of Interstate 29, off Exit 47, 800-530-8866). Over a 40-year period, George Glore collected and maintained the museum's display, giving us the opportunity to get an extensive look into the history of mental-health care. The museum features a wide range of apparatuses used to treat patients, as well as a large display of artwork (much of it quite beautiful) made by the hospital's patients. A particularly memorable exhibit is the display of the more than 1,000 nails, pins and other objects removed from a patient's stomach in 1929. Admission costs $3 for students, $4 for seniors and $5 for adults. The museum is open today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, see stjosephmuseum.org/glore.htm. $3-$5

Cowtown Mallroom

Cowtown Mallroom
It's been about 40 years since the Cowtown Ballroom, at 3101 Gillham Plaza, hosted the Flying Burrito Brothers, Alice Cooper and Frank Zappa. Today, it's the site of the Cowtown Mallroom, where shoppers and looky-loos alike can find vintage clothing, antiques, records, furniture and art. Vendor liaisons Darrin and Kathi Welch occupy the first-floor space and hope to make it a weekly community event that doesn't necessarily revolve around spending money. "We are working on having nonprofit organizations and food vendors each week," Kathi Welch says. "There is also going to be live music between 2 and 3 p.m." As this blurb went to press, still available were a pack of Hank Williams Jr. playing cards, a black-light Tweety Bird poster and a disco ball. Interested vendors should e-mail cowtownmallroom@gmail.com. The Cowtown Mallroom is open to the public only on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. — Berry Anderson

Wine Barn Winery and Vineyard

Wine Barn Winery and Vineyard
The "RedNek Wine Glass" — a Mason jar perched atop a Libbey candleholder — is all the rage these days in DIY circles. The low-maintenance chugger brought $5 million in sales in 10 months and tops Amazon's best-selling glassware and drinkware list, according to CNN Money. Kansas City has its own way of rebelling against prim-and-proper wine traditions: the Wine Barn Winery and Vineyard (2850 North 119th Street, Kansas City, Kansas, 913-721-5577). The 16-acre property near the Kansas Speedway pairs wine-lover delights, such as a scenic vineyard and wine made on-site, with casual charm — a metal barn with a concrete-slab patio serves as the winery. "We're a break from the snobby little wine club," Wine Barn co-owner Celeste Mikijanis says. The three-year-old, family-owned business has 17 wine varieties and makes each bottle one at a time. Tastings are free of charge and available during regular hours, typically 12 to 5 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. The facility also is open by appointment. For more information, see winedottebarn.com.

Waldo Wednesdays

From Gregory Boulevard to 91st Street, from State Line to Holmes, Waldo is one of Kansas City's largest and most eclectic neighborhoods. Retail in the area dates back at least 100 years, when a streetcar stop at 74th Terrace and Wornall sold groceries and became known as the "Grand Central Station of Waldo." Now it's a bus stop surrounded by bars, restaurants and shops. On the third Wednesday of every month, get your hands on deals when the area hosts Waldo Wednesdays. Businesses such as 75th Street Brewery (520 West 75th Street, 816-523-4677), City Looks Salon (7441 Broadway, 816-444-4600) and Pampered Paws Grooming (7238 Wornall, 816-333-2522) offer specials and incentives for shoppers from open to close. For a list of participating businesses, go to waldomo.com.
