Kansas City Culture and Living
Kansas City is most famous for its steak and barbecue. Along with Texas, Memphis & North Carolina, Kansas City is a "world capital of barbecue." There are more than
90 barbecue restauranta in the metropolitan area and the American Royal each fall hosts what it claims is the world's biggest barbecue contest. The classic Kansas City
style barbecue was an inner city phenomenon that evolved from the pit of Henry Perry from the Memphis, Tennessee, area in the early 1900s and blossomed in the 18th and
Vine neighborhood. Arthur Bryant's was to take over the Perry restaurant and added molasses to sweeten the recipe. In 1946 Gates and Sons BarBQ was opened by one of
Perry's cooks. The Gates recipe added even more molasses. Although Bryant's and Gates are the two definitive Kansas City barbecue restaurants they have just recently
begun expanding outside of the Greater Kansas City Area. Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue is well regarded by many both locally and nationally. In 1977 Rich Davis, a
psychiatrist, test-marketed his own concoction called K.C. Soul Style Barbecue Sauce. He renamed it KC Masterpiece and in 1986 he sold the sauce to the Kingsford division
of Clorox. Davis retained rights to operate restaurants using the name and sauce. Kansas City is also famous for Jazz music. Jazz has been a staple of the KC music
scene since the 1920s with artists like Count Basie, Bennie Moton and Jay McShann. Charlie "Bird" Parker, who was born in Kansas City, Kan., grew up during this era.
Kansas City's professional sports teams include the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League and the Kansas City Royals of Major League Baseball.

Kansas City Public Transportation
In July 2005, the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority (KCATA) launched Kansas City's first Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line called "MAX" (Metro Area Express). MAX
links the vibrant River Market, Downtown, Union Station, Crown Center and the Country Club Plaza. This corridor boasts over 150,000 jobs, as well as some of the area's
most prestigious real estate and treasured cultural amenities. By design, MAX operates and is marketed more like a rail system than a local bus line. A unique identity
was created for MAX, including 13 modern diesel buses and easily identifiable "stations". MAX features state-of-the-art technology to deliver customers a high level of
reliability (real-time GPS tracking of buses, available at every station), speed (stoplights automatically change in their favor if buses are behind schedule) and
