Product Description:
At no other time in history has there been a more exciting collision of art, music, and fashion than at Max’s Kansas City from the 1960s to the early 80s. Max’s was the place where you could stare at Andy Warhol, argue about art with Willem de Kooning or John Chamberlain, discuss literature with William S. Burroughs, and get a record deal just by showing up. If downstairs the artists were paying their tabs with original art, upstairs was home to the iconoclastic New York music scene, with performances by Max’s house band, the Velvet Underground; the irreverent New York Dolls; and undiscovered musicians such as Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Blondie, Iggy Pop, and Madonna.


 


A luminous collection of photographs that captures the exuberance and decadence of the coolest club of all time, as well as essays by Lou Reed, Lenny Kaye, Danny Fields, and Steven Watson, Max’s Kansas City is a stun­ning souvenir of one of New York City’s most important cultural landmarks.

Praise for Max's Kansas City:

"a raucous photo book with reminiscences of the club" --The New York Times 

"a brilliant photographic tribute to New York City's hippest hangout, long regarded the crossroads of music and fashion" --Harper's Bazaar

Product Description:
In 1821, François Chouteau set up a fur-trading outpost along the Missouri River, bringing the first settlement of Europeans to what would become Kansas City, named after the Kansa tribe of Native Americans who inhabited the area. At the center of a growing nation, the "City on the Bluff" would build and thrive as a river town, a gateway to the West, and a railroad hub, absorbing the influences of pioneers and immigrants traveling through or making it their home. Striving to become "A City Beautiful," its parks and boulevards drew attention from around the world. These are the beginnings of a town carved out of a hillside in the wilderness, transformed into an exciting metropolis that would eventually be called home by Walt Disney, Ernest Hemingway, Jesse James, and many others who left a lasting mark on history.

Discover the stories behind Kansas City’s delicious and diverse fleet of food trucks. 

Kansas City’s claim to food fame has come from a long-standing tradition of stellar barbeque. As the city continues to grow and evolve, so does the food scene. Budding entrepreneurs and foodies have launched innovative food trucks that deliver trendy and worldly dishes to the community, all from kitchens on wheels.

Chrissy Nucum cooks up decades-old family recipes to offer customers authentic, scratch-made Filipino fare. Kim Niebaum and Michelle Ferguson left cushy office jobs to own and run Coffee Cake KC. Brandon Simpson was a piano salesman before he launched one of Kansas City’s first food trucks, Jazzy B’s.

In this book, explore the stories behind many of these small businesses, and the love they pour into their recipes. Each food truck owner shares tales of their struggles and victories, and what made them take the leap to start their own mobile food businesses. They even give readers exclusive recipes that keep their customers coming back for more.

About Alex Levine

Levine is an award-winning food truck blogger from Chicago. Her work has been featured on KCTV5, ABC, NBC, Mobile Cuisine Magazine, WGN radio, and more.
