Memorial Day Max's Kansas City Festival 2017

(Follow the link above for more information)

 - Bowery Electric in downtown Manhattan Thursday, May 25th through Saturday May 27th

It Ain’t Gettin’ Any Cooler.

Sorry for the bad grammar, but you get the point.  Soon it will be Memorial Day.  Before you know it, the daily high temperature will be in the nineties and beyond.  Yikes!  You should know how to protect your body against such extremes, but what are you doing to guard your vehicle against summer heat?

The first solution seems to be obvious.  Park in the shade.  Ideally you have a garage, but if not then seek shade during the hottest part of the day.  Let’s start with the basics.  Your car’s battery is filled with water and acid.  As temperatures heat up the water in the battery will do the same and evaporate.  That will leave the lead plates exposed.

By all means, have your battery checked now by a professional.  It just takes a few minutes and then you will either have peace of mind or a plan of action.  Make a quick appointment with the A-Team…Able Auto Service.  They are Kansas City’s summer auto maintenance headquarters.  Visit them at 837 Osage Ave. or call ahead at (913) 321-1030.

May Day…May Day…May Day.

We hope you are shouting that for all of the right reasons.  Ahhh, the month of May.  It brings warm weather, Royals home games, the end of the school year, and an approaching vacation season.  Is your car ready for the rigors of summer driving?  Please tell me you won’t wait for a break-down before you consider your vehicle’s needs.

Brakes…check.  Transmission fluid…check.  Oil change…check.  Shocks and struts…check.  Exhaust system…check.  Tires…check.  A lot could go wrong without preventative vehicle maintenance before you head out on the highways and byways of the Kansas City area.  Let’s make sure that you are ready.

Schedule a complete maintenance check-up from Able Auto Service.  The A-Team is your best choice for a complete summer driving checklist of preventative auto maintenance in the Kansas City Area.  Visit their website at and call for an appointment at their 837 Osage Ave. location (913) 321-1030.

Kansas City Festivals 2017 - 2018 Calendar

(Click on the above link for more information)

"We’re not in Kansas anymore Toto...or are we?? Spanning the Kansas-Missouri border is this quintessential American midwestern city known for three things: barbecue, barbecue, and more barbecue! While slow cooked meats and sauce are it’s thing, KC has some pretty gnarly festivals to boot. Old Shawnee Days, Fiesta Kansas City, and KC Fringe Festival just to name a few!"

Have you been Out of Line Lately?

No, you don’t have to confess your little indiscretions here.  We are talking about your car.  You have been dodging and riding over potholes all winter.  Now that spring is here it is time to have your car’s alignment checked.  Putting it off could lead to much bigger driving problems as spring turns into summer.

Here are a few signs that the time has come –

1.  Do you find yourself holding on to the steering wheel a little tighter?
2.  Does the wheel itself turn slightly when you drive on a straightaway?
3.  How long has it been since the wheel alignment was checked?  It should be yearly.

If you procrastinate, chances are that you will need to replace your tires much sooner.  There is an expense I know you would like to put off as long as possible!  Steer…or veer into Kansas City’s wheel alignment specialist.  The A-Team at Able Auto Service will get your car back on the straight and narrow.  Call them for an appointment at (913) 321-1030.

Make your Easter plans!

"The Country Club Plaza makes its annual transformation into an Easter Wonderland this spring . The popular Plaza tradition brings colorful, larger-than-life bunnies and other springtime animals to the Plaza’s courtyards and street corners. Mermaid and Pomona Courtyards, on the west side of Seasons 52, are home to a lively collection of animals for children to play on, while the Easter bunnies line the Plaza’s sidewalks.

Visit the Plaza on Easter Sunday for great brunches, live music from noon – 3pm in Mermaid & Penguin Courtyards, and see the Plaza Easter Bunnies and Wonderland Animals."
