KANSAS CITY NEIGHBORHOOD TO
“CLONE” ISU CAMPUSTOWN FOR BIG 12 TOURNEY
MARCH 1, 2018 – KANSAS CITY, MO – It’s no secret Iowa State fans travel well. They especially travel well to the Big 12 Men’s Basketball Tournament in Kansas City. The Waldo neighborhood in Kansas City is taking bold action to make Iowa State basketball fans feel right at home, renaming a two-block stretch of Wornall Road “Welch South” in honor of Welch Avenue: the heart of student social life at Iowa State University.
The Cyclone-specific drink specials fans will find in Waldo include a ‘The Bloody MAYOR-Y” (a nod to former cyclone basketball player and coach, Fred “The Mayor” Hoiberg) and, of course, big discounts on Busch Light. (add select mug specials each day)
The Waldo neighborhood lies a few blocks south of the Westport and Plaza bar districts, making it a quick ride from one to the other.
Chris Lewellen, who owns Lew’s and The Well, establishments at either end of “Welch South”, both of our places offer lunch, dinner and late night food service along with every craft beer and spirit you can imagine with every sports TV package so you won’t miss the game. (Lew’s is open till 3am)
“Sometimes you need a break from the shoulder to shoulder, hours of standing thing,” he said. “We’re planning for a big crowd, so we’ll have a lot of seats and tables and an incredible wait staff that is used to large crowds. Kids are welcome with parent present till 10pm.
Lew’s and The Well are full-service restaurants in addition to being sports bars, so alumni and families with children and under aged students are welcome to grab a bite and watch the games with a game-watching experience created just for Cyclone fans.
Lewellen is also offering the ultimate assurance to ISU fans, vowing,“Unlike San Antonio, I guarantee we’ll never run out of Busch Light!”
